Tom Harkin is a Democrat from Iowa, and like other Democrats is a person of the left who has no fundamental problem with communism because it’s just a little farther down the progressive continuum from socialism. The fact that tyranny and human misery follows wherever communism is tried, well as the saying goes, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. So it seems Sen. Harkin visited the Island paradise of communist Cuba recently and came away darn impressed with their healthcare system.
For Cuban Senator Marco Rubio (just like I’m Italian, he was born in Miami, his parents in Cuba) this was too much to endure in silence; so he took to the Senate floor to slam Harkin. We haven’t heard such harsh, and accurate, language by a politician against communism maybe since the fall of the Berlin Wall. This is something that Democrats are not familiar with: It’s call the Truth! Bravo Sen. Rubio!
