Obama Asks Congress to End Cuba Embargo

President Obama called on Congress to lift the U.S. embargo against Cuba,which has been in place for over 50 years. "Our shift in Cuba policy has the potential to end a legacy of mistrust in our hemisphere; removes a phony excuse for restrictions in Cuba; stands up for democratic values; and extends the hand of friendship to the Cuban people. And this year, Congress should begin the work of ending the embargo," he said during the State of the Union
