Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor, Your Hungry....

Chan Lowe, 3/8/13:
Americans, being one of the poorest nations in the world, are used to relying on aid from foreign oil-rich governments to heat their homes.


  1. In a way, yes.
    "Venezuela’s assistance to the poor in the wealthiest industrialized country in the world is unusual, to say the least, particularly because Chavez has been a vocal critic of the U.S. government. ...Many think that Venezuela’s provision of home heating aid to poor families in the U.S. while the U.S. government has hugely slashed the budget of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is sort of embarrassing. Critics view this as [Ted] Kennedy facilitating Chavez’s 'sticking it' to the U.S."
