Chavez like many socialist leaders only acted like he was for the poor. They do it when there are so many poor people you can win an election with them. Then you set out to make the poor a little less poor, and the middle class also poor. Now you have even a bigger group of voters. Meanwhile you sieze the upper classes money and land forever cementing your country as a country of not super poor, but just poor. So its looks like you poor are better off then Brazils poor. In reality though your country now has no dream of anyone becoming rich. Your stick being sort of poor, but with healthcare for the rest of your life.
