Chavez warns private clinics

According to Oil Wars, Chavez warned private health clinics that should they fail to keep their prices at reasonable levels, the government could nationalize them.

As Oil Wars comments, the opposition will probably start whining about this, running about with flailing hands and screaming "TOTALITARIANISM".

If you ask me, the only thing Chavez is guilty of is warning said enterprises and not nationalizing them straight away. I suppose however that until he manages to establish that unified socialist party and neutralize the bureaucracy, he does well to treat with caution.
