Beyonce Knowles & Jay-Z’s Cuban Excursion Blamed for New Tourism Embargo Bill
According to a report, a House of Representatives subcommittee just passed a bill that would restrict American visits to Cuba except for academic pursuits.
Jose Serrano, a Representative from the Bronx explicitly blamed Beyonce and Jay’s trip for restarting the debate.
“This bill is a response to the trip by Beyoncé and Jay-Z. It’s intended to play to an audience — a diminishing audience — who think there should be no contact with Cuba,” he lamented.
And while the new bill may actually pass a vote in the House, Serrano seemed pretty convinced that the legislation will be shut down in the Democrat-controlled Senate.
