Droit Du Seigneur

slacktivist tells the tale:
The cost for residential heating oil is still well above what it was last year -- which is a source of real hardship for many Americans this winter. And they're not getting any help from Congress, which still isn't funding LIHEAP, the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, at a level that would allow all families that qualify to receive assistance. ...

Venezuela's Citgo Petroleum Corp. is offering heating oil at a 40 percent discount to low-income families throughout the American Northeast. ...

Citgo is being investigated by the GOP Congress for helping low-income American families. Joe Barton seems to think launching such an investigation -- trying to stop, or at least interfere with, such assistance -- is his job as a member of Congress.

Joe Barton be damned then. The government manifests hostility to the people so many ways these days ... why, you're cold ... better that you freeze than use that dang socialistic oil there ....
