Venezuela gives US cheap oil deal

Officials from Venezuela and Massachusetts have signed a deal providing cheap heating oil to low-income homes in the US state.

The fuel will be sold at some 40% below market prices to thousands of homes over the winter months

Talks are under way to agree a similar deal to provide discounted heating oil from Venezuela to low-income residents in New York’s Bronx district.

Why isn’t the US government doing this too?

    Let’s hope this effort from Venezuela opens US citizens’ eyes to the way their capitalist government doesn’t give a crap about their poor and that a government with a supposedly inferior form of government and society is willing to help them out.
