13 Versus Insulza (part 2)

From Florida, Ron Klein, Democrat from district 22, is a 2006 newcomer who was reported as saying that he "had four different conversations on [Cuban family travel restrictions] from [U.S. Rep.] Mario Diaz-Balart." While Klein is against the three-year travel restrictions, when asked about travel to Cuba in general he said: "Lifting the general travel ban? Not yet. No." I'm sure a good talk with the Diaz-Balarts does that to you.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democrat from district 20, is close with Ileana, Lincoln and Mario, and thus supports the embargo by default.

Allen Boyd, Democrat from district 2, is a military hawk that supports the Iraq war, and has supported legislation aimed at the Cuban government before.

Connie Mack, Republican from district 14, is a top recipient of Cuban-American political contributions.

And, Tom Feeney, Republican from district 24, is a corrupt politician who has supported absurd legislation aimed at Cuba for Ileana, Lincoln, and Mario.

Aside from the Florida and New Jersey signatories, Dan Burton, Indian Republican, and main supporter of the Helms-Burton Act, is a top recipient of Cuban-American political contributions.

And, J. Gresham Barrett, South Carolina Republican from district 3, is an associate member of the Congressional Hispanic Conference, which is chaired by Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, and whose members also include Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart.
