Re the Sept. 15 letter Defend law banning business with terrorist states: It’s duplicitous for Rep. Erik Fresen to categorize as “disgraceful” Florida’s reticence to spend scarce taxpayer dollars pursuing a futile law against “companies engaged in business operations with state sponsors of terrorism such as Cuba.” He and others who pander to hardline Cubans take no action against a U.S. trade policy that has resulted in more than $4 billion in agricultural exports to Cuba since 2001.
When they have the guts to go after Archer Daniels Midland and its multimillion-dollar grain contracts with Cuba’s Alimport, we might listen. ADM has a finger in every pot roast and can of corn between here and Ocala. With what cash will he enforce such a law if upheld? He, like Sen. Marco Rubio and the rest, will turn tail once corporate donors raise eyebrows over such hypocrisy.
