This may not seem so bad, considering our own senators and congresspeople are just as rich, if not more so. But the problem in this case is that the Cuban people have lived in extreme poverty for decades. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the island country lost much of its prosperity. Due to embargos, Cuba has also lost 80% of its former external trade.

The people starve and fight for food while the Castro family sips highly personalized milk from glasses on their private island.
