A win for Lincoln

The House of Representatives just approved an amendment by Representative Lincoln Diaz-Balart to provide the Administration’s full request – $45.7 million – for Cuba democracy programs in 2008, instead of the $9 million that the Appropriations Committee recommended. The vote was 254-170, with 66 Democrats voting in the majority.

The same 60-some democrats that voted for this probably voted to approve propoganda broadcasts to Venezeula last week as well. What they don't realize is that the the VOA may be centrist compared to most of the media in that country.

When are the hearings on Marti and the embargo??
