WASHINGTON U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said on Saturday that even after Castro's death "much work remains to secure the freedom of the Cuban people," something that the United States must be fully committed to."Now that Fidel Castro is dead, the cruelty and oppression of his regime should die with him," Ryan said in a statement. "Today let us reflect on the memory and sacrifices of all those who have suffered under the Castros.”
