    BOSTON — Citgo has suspended its free heating oil program for low-income residents, Citizens Energy Chairman Joseph Kennedy announced Monday.

    Kennedy said the Venezuelan government's Texas-based oil subsidiary cited falling oil prices and the world economic crisis for forcing the company to reevaluate all of its social programs, including the heating oil program aimed at 400,000 households in 16 states.

    The program, started in 2005 with Citizens Energy, a nonprofit headed by Kennedy, sent 100 gallons of free oil a year to eligible households




    maybe that rich jack ass Kennedy will pick up the tab! Liberals are so freaking generous to the poor. NO?

    joe kennedy is a poseur and a fraud. the not for profit citizens energy is owned by a for profit holding company that shockingly, joe owns. he also sought to have his marriage annulled after his civil divorce so he could get married in the church. this basically meant denying the existence of his then teenaged children.

    a real charming guy.

    This has absolutely nothing to do with Kennedy or any American domestic policy. This has to do with Venezuela and Hugo Chavez.

    Hugh was running a budget deficit that, relative to GDP, was even bigger than America's. And this was with oil at or above $100. With oil pushing $30, his budget has blown its seams and Hugh needs every dollar he can get his hands to continue paying for his so-called Bolivaran Revolution.

    sure it does, Kennedy was the leader of the Chavez hugging far left lunatic crowd. now why don't he put up for his friend? Probably cause he is a stingy liberal.

    Too bad.

    The people of Maine who benefitted from that relief will miss it this year.
