house Bill H.R. 854

Should the U.S. Provide More Humanitarian Aid to Venezuela?

Argument in favor

Humanitarian aid is badly needed in Venezuela and surrounding countries. The U.S. needs to lead the international community’s response to the Venezuelan crisis by providing more aid and using its position in the United Nations to that end.

If there is good you can do, do it. Isn’t that the example that we want to pass on to our children? Isn’t that the legacy that we want to be known for? Don’t we want to be seen as a good nation? A good people.

We need to stop efforts at regime change and provide the humanitarian aid with no strings attached.

Argument opposed

The US has already sent over $195 million in humanitarian aid to Venezuela since fiscal year 2017, and the Trump administration has already committed to additional money if needed. There’s no need for this bill.

This is a pretext to influence regime change in a country that nationalized industry, against US economic interests. These measures have little to do with humanitarian aide and everything to do with US imperialism. Hands off Venezuela!

22,000,000,000,000.00 in debt. Where are the other nations that can support these people? We should help but how? How much are other countries willing to support? Where is their 200,000,000? England, France, Brazil? I understand we are the world police but why do we have to be the worlds checkbook?

We have homeless street people, rural communities with low wages in the USA. We have veterans and elderly on the streets—we don’t need illegals here or the needy in Venezuela added to the budget. Take care of our US legal citizens first.

    No more aid unless we know it will get to the people who need it. Maduro won’t let that happen.

    We have already given and their leadership has denied entry. So when Venezuela gets it’s leadership addressed then maybe we can support with more aid. Remember you can lead a horse to water, but you can not make them drink.

    How about we provide humanitarian aide to Puerto Rico which still hasn’t recovered from the hurricane and wasn’t significantly helped by Trump tossing them paper towels. They are USA. They fit in with America First. Besides, aid to Venezuela is a ploy to begin a regimen change and another huge fossil fuel theft.

    We have to stop propping up nations that have a socialist system as it prolongs their agonizing existence. Let it fail naturally and the people will take back their government and restore their freedom from the enslavement of socialism.

    HELP AMERICANS FIRST! There are too many people in America struggling to get by thanks to the Cabal, who has been systematically destroying America practically since its inception! They are the ones that finance wars for both sides, introduced drugs and alcohol, and made sure Americans became fat, lazy, & disconnected from the harsh realities of what is actually happening in the world. I’ll be happy to help other countries...just as soon as there are no more homeless veterans, drug addicts, or people having to go without basic necessities like; shelter, heat/ac, clean water, healthy food, reliable transportation, various toiletries for hygiene and weather appropriate clothing. Oh yeah, don’t forget the 22+Trillion in “public debt”. 🤬

    I vote no. Let’s take care of Puerto Rico, New Orleans, NY as they still suffer from natural disasters. Let’s do a better job of taking care of our children that go hungry. Pay our teachers more. Let’s do this stuff first

    Although my first response is- what about Puerto Rico? It seems like this is one way to both help Venezuela and help stem the tide of fleeing immigrants. If you are one of those self centered people who doesn’t want to offer sanctuary to those fleeing violence and poverty then the obvious answer is to help them make their home countries safer.

    What's that old adage? "Charity begins at home." We need to stop giving aid to other countries and start giving more to our own citizens.
