Bush budget would slash assistance to Latin America

In the Miami Herald there is an article by By Andres Oppenheimer;

“President Bush's budget calls for a 28 percent cut in aid to Latin America and the Caribbean, worrying some concerned about growing Venezuelan influence. At a time when many Latin American countries are shifting to the left and Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez is promising significant aid to his neighbors, the Bush administration is proposing major cuts in foreign aid to the region”.
