Stockman hails new era for Venezuela, wants answers from American liberals
WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Stockman (R-Texas 36,) member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement Wednesday morning after the death of Venezuela’s socialist dictator Hugo Chavez.
We are praying for the people of Venezuela that they find peace, stability and freedom upon the death of the dictator Chavez.
We would also like to hear America’s leftists explain how “champion of the poor” Chavez racked up personal wealth of over $1 billion while his people suffered food shortages. Chavez’s agenda, hailed by many Democrats, produced nothing but poverty, violence and oppression.
