Jesse Jackson: Venezuela "Invests in Its People…U.S. Invests In Tax Cuts
for the Wealthy and a War that does not Make Sense in Iraq"The
Rev. Jesse Jackson spoke Saturday night in New York City at an event with Venezuelan
President Hugo Chavez. Jackson said, "[The Venezuelan] government’s
priorities are to invest in its people. They subsidize oil, gas, health care
and education and that’s civil. We cannot subsidize our oil and education
because we are investing in tax cuts for the wealthy and a war that does
not make sense
in Iraq. We need new values, we need to go another way."
