4. There are lots of hands in the usaid cookie jar

and I think I allude to them - but I think it's the Cuban Americans who set the direction so that the cookie jar can stay full. Thus, I blame them first. Once they're out of the way a more sensible policy can happen.

It's not so much money that Debbie Wasserman Schulz is going to make it a central issue without her buddies pushing it - and John Kerry was attempting to reduce USAID money and probably would want to loosen things up if he didn't have to deal with Menendez, etc.

>>plenty of other politicians who know it's not in their interest to make risk on the issue of Cuba. Add to that the easy pickings for Florida politicians who can fundraise on this issue and this issue never moves forward much.
