Congressional leaders continue to express outrage at President Obama’s announced plans to normalize Cuba relations, and are promising to block the effort. Can they?
That’s because even though a number of Congressional leaders are lining up against the rapprochement, the polls show broad support among Americans, and they probably won’t be able to muster a veto-proof resolution.
Public animosity toward Cuba has faded over the last half century, business interests are lining up to cash in as the US normalizes its relations with Cuba, and indeed brings its policy in line with the rest of the world.
