2. The impediment is the machine comprised of many players - Cuban Americans

and their colleagues in congress and in Miami, etc. who are lining their pockets with the current scenario and plenty of other politicians who know it's not in their interest to make risk on the issue of Cuba. Add to that the easy pickings for Florida politicians who can fundraise on this issue and this issue never moves forward much. It's a sticky situation and people like Sen. Menendez, now in charge of the Foreign Relations committee in the Senate, are hardliners who will block all attempts to improve relations.
