"About 30 million low-income American households who will need help paying heating bills this winter from a U.S. government program will be left in the cold because of a lack of funding for the program.
The poor, already digging deep to pay for expensive gasoline, also will face much higher heating fuel costs, especially if oil prices stay near record levels.
Consumer groups and state energy officials have sounded the alarm, saying a federal program to help poor families pay heating bills will have nowhere near the money needed to cover those expected to seek assistance.
The government's Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, known as LIHEAP, only has enough funding to cover 16 percent of the 38 million poor households eligible for the program."
This President, his entire Administration and the Republican Party do not care about this issue.
The Christian Right will not be quoting passages from the New Testament about charity to their Republican representatives on this issue.
When low-income Seniors freeze to death this winter, the Bush, Jr. Administration will use that as proof that there is no such thing as global warming.
