It's a tactic the New York Police Department has used for years: leaving cars and bags loaded with valuables in plain sight to see if anyone takes the bait.

WASHINGTON (AP)- Sen. Marco Rubio says entertainers Beyonce and Jay-Z missed a chance while in Cuba to see firsthand the effects of political oppression.

The Republican lawmaker from Florida calls their recent trip "hypocritical" and he takes issue with the U.S. government's approval of the visit as a cultural mission.

Beyonce and Jay-Z marked their wedding anniversary in Havana last week.

U.S. citizens aren't allowed to travel to Cuba for mere tourism, though they can obtain licenses for academic, religious, journalistic or cultural exchange trips. These people-to-people licenses were reinstated under the Obama administration.

Rubio, a Cuban-American, says such trips provide money to the Castro government to oppress the Cuban people.

Rubio discussed the trip during interviews Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," ABC's "This Week" and NBC's "Meet the Press."

A REAL AMERICAN HERO!!!

Any Comment by Marco Rubio,(R), should be taken with not 1, but at least 2, grains of salt, regarding anything about Cuba. He is one of the main protagonists of the Cuba Embargo of the last 50-plus Years! He is one of the Miami-Cuban-Batista-followers, that have disseminated ALL Of the United States and Canada's, information, regarding all things Cuban. He and Illeana Ross.(and other politicos in the GOP) spread everything they can make up, to the entire US GOVERNMENT. Their constituents in Miami, Florida voted overwhelmingly Democratic, in the last election, which SHOULD let these politicians know, that their views were NOT shared by the population. Even as the official opposition, these politicians spew their biassed rhetoric. SHAME!

And you are neither AMERICAN nor Canadian but an enemy of the Free World, an infiltrated piece of trash, that under your pseudonym posts nothing but AntiAmerican and antiDemocratic propaganda.

I'm glad you took the time to read what I have observed. Let's hope some of it sunk in, Multi-Names. You probably don't get much time to read articles that the rest of the world writes, because you are too busy trying to understand what your masters, the CIA, want you to write about. You are about as subtle as a kick in the bag, goof! I am not Anti-American, I am anti US Government actions. I am also not anti-Democratic, you chose what the USA calls, "democracy", and I choose a similar kind of government, called Socialist/Democratic, which, in the end, is very similar to what Democracy, SHOULD BE! Take a holiday and see the world a bit, bud!

It's too bad Americans can't travel to Cuba, like every other country in the world can. That must cause quite a problem for Americans, from the land of the 'FREE'?

Obviously this is your misguided opinion, Multi-Names. But, who in their right mind, actually pays any attention to your posts? I certainly don't learn anything of consequence from them and I'm sure no one else can squeeze any coherent facts from them either. Why don't you go back to the corner and finish your bottle of wine, eh?

Most Miami Cubans are not batista followers.
Batista followers and castro followers are blind stupid fanatics like yourself.
