Quote of the Day: Evidence Proves Trade With Castro Hasn't Helped Cuban People

Thursday, September 10, 2015
It's hard to believe the increased trade will help the Cuban people. The evidence is clear: The Castro regime had 30 years of subsidized trade with the Soviet Union and billions of dollars in European investment, yet none of the profits made its way to the Cuban people. What makes us think that adding U.S. to the equation would be different except to prop up a corrupt dictatorship?
