The Obama Administration Hands the Castro Regime a Lifelong Dream

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s announcement on restoring diplomatic relations with Cuba’s communist regime:

The Obama administration is handing the Castros a lifetime dream of legitimacy without getting a thing for the Cuban people being oppressed by this brutal communist dictatorship.  As I’ve said before, relations with the Castro regime should not be revisited, let alone normalized, until Cubans enjoy freedom – and not one second sooner.”
