Venezuela's Vice President Nicolas Maduro, right, and Diosdado Cabello, President of Venezuela's National Assembly, gesture to supporters upon their arrival to attend the state-of-the-nation address in Caracas, Venezuela, Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013. Maduro submitted the report in writing from ailing President Hugo Chavez, who is receiving treatment in Cuba after undergoing his fourth cancer surgery. Opposition politicians had argued that lawmakers should have postponed the annual speech because Chavez was supposed to deliver it. (AP Photo/Fernando Llano) less
