Venezuela's Problems Could Doom US Heating Oil Charity
Amid continuing economic turmoil, Venezuela skipped heating oil
contributions to a Massachusetts-based nonprofit for a second consecutive
winter, signaling that the popular program that began with fanfare after
Hurricane Katrina may be kaput.

The decision by Venezuela's Citgo Petroleum Corp. to bow out of the program
founded by Joseph P. Kennedy II, which has helped hundreds of thousands of
U.S. residents, coincides with plummeting oil prices and corresponding
economic problems in oil-rich Venezuela.

Hopes of a late contribution to the "Joe-4-Oil" program to help the poor
heat their homes faded with spring's arrival this week, Kennedy said.

Venezuelan oil money should benefit Venezuelans first and should not be
used to buy political influence in the US. That is meddling in the
internal affairs of another country.
Of course a Chavez-Maduro plan was doomed. The "kaput" happened in
Venezuela due to corruption and bad management.
Note that "oil prices" have been "plummeting down" over the last 10 years.

Blame the Castro inspired Chavez - Maduro disaster.
