Rethinking the U.S. Embargo against Cuba

Capitol Hill Briefing
June 14, 2007
1:00PM to 2:30PM EDT
B-318 Rayburn House Office Building
Featuring: Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), Chairman, House Ways & Means Committee; Rep. Jeff Flake (R-AZ); and moderated by Sallie James, Trade Policy Analyst, Cato Institute.
Since the early 1960s, Americans have been barred from trading with, investing in, or traveling to Cuba. With Cuba possibly on the cusp of new political leadership, a growing bipartisan movement in Congress is calling for a reevaluation of the relationship between the United States and Cuba. Please join us for a Capitol Hill Briefing at which Chairman Rangel and Congressman Flake, leading proponents of expanding travel to and economic relations with Cuba, will discuss the need to reassess the U.S. embargo against Cuba.
