Congress Votes Against Castro Dictatorship

Today the House of Representatives passed the Cuba resolution denouncing the Cuban government with HUGE bi-partisan support. The resolution is in reaction to the July arrests of members of the opposition in Cuba by the totalitarian dictatorship in Havana.

Rep. Diaz-Balart, the sponsor of the measure, stated the resolution demonstrated the solidarity of the U.S. Congress for all Cuban prisoners of consiouness and pro-democracy activists.

With a final vote of 393 to 31, H. Res 388, calls for the immediate release of all prisoners of consiouness and free elections in Cuba, urges the European Union to reexamine its policy toward Cuba, and calls on the representative of the United States to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights to ensure a resolution calling upon the Cuban regime to end its humanrights violations.

Is it safe to assume that among the 31 nays were Rangell, Flake, Lee, among others?

Funny enough, I am almost sure Flake is a co-sponsor of the resolution!!! Yeah the great fighter to end the embargo (yuck) says he wants freedom in Cuba (or at least is trying to look like he is...).... We did get Sanders, the only Indep to vote for the resolution... as soon as i get a list of the commies i will post for everyone to mock them....
