68. Actually, many Europeans are no longer guaranteed healthcare,
since it has been privatized. And more low income families are losing their homes now then before.

Venezuela does have "universal" healthcare - free for the poor (as is education and food).

Chavez already has started at home, and he has achieved a lot. Eradicating illiteracy takes a few years - which he did. Eradicating poverty takes a bit longer. It's not just a matter of money but also a matter of time, and he's working on it.
