"... Mr. Flake received a 100% rating from Citizens Against Government Waste, and along with Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn is the scourge of Congressional earmarkers. In four terms in Congress, Mr. Flake has never sought a special bridge, courthouse, parking lot, or teapot museum for his district.

"A genuine get-tough policy with Cuba would export something Americans know a little about: freedom. Let's get rid of travel license applications altogether. ...
