It sounds like a bunch of nonsense on both sides. Grover Norquist is not a reliable conservative, and neither are those senate RINOs who voted to keep the ethanol subsidies in place.
Removing ethanol subsidies is NOT a tax increase. If you take the damned ethanol out of gasoline, it will save everyone money. I have to take my weedwhackers and chain saws in to get fixed just about every year, or the damned things won’t start. Ethanol rots out their insides. And the same with my outboard motor.
And I’m sure it increases expenses on keeping my car engine going, too. Plus reducing mileage and making the car cough going up hills.
ethanol is insane on sooo many levels.
i like Thune, but his math is plain wrong.
they say ethanol reduces our foreign dependence.
but, in the entire (Pop Deming) process,
it takes MORE than a gallon of gas, to make a gallon of ethanol, which produces less btu’s than the original gallon of gas.
it INCREASES our foreign dependence,
and INCREASES the price of oil.
...and costs taxpayers over 6 billion a year, on top!
