Obama Eases Cuba Restrictions

Pack your bags for Havana: ABC News is reporting that President Obama “will lift travel, remittance, mail and business restrictions relating to the Communist nation of Cuba.” Obama will allow both unlimited visits to family members in Cuba and unlimited remittances (cash immigrants send back home) after President Bush put stronger restrictions on both in 2004. He will also allow U.S. telecommunications networks to link the U.S. and Cuba, and allow for more humanitarian items to be sent to the island.
