Tonight the Miami fascists will have cagaleras [diarrhea], as six U.S. Senators introduce a bill to lift the Cuba blockade/embargo

WASHINGTON Thu Feb 12, 2015 2:33pm EST

(Reuters) - A group of Democratic and Republican U.S. senators introduced a bill on Thursday seeking to lift the half-century-old trade embargo against Cuba, nearly two months after President Barack Obama announced moves toward normalizing relations with the Communist-ruled island nation. 

The legislation seeks to repeal provisions of previous laws that prevent Americans from doing business with Cuba.

Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar is the lead sponsor of the bill unveiled on Thursday. The bill's co-sponsors include Republican Senators Jeff Flake and Mike Enzi, as well as Democrats Patrick Leahy, Richard Durbin and Debbie Stabenow.
