The geniuses in the Senate, including our own Senator Alexander and Senator Corker voted this week for a huge increase in the giveaway of out taxpayer money to farmers and big agricultural companies who are producing ethanol from corn. They have also created an army of new lobbyists for all the new ethanol processing plants.
Oh, this sounds like a GREAAAAAAAT idea. Lets Take the crops that we use for FOOD and start using them for gas for our cars.
Now the price of everyone's food is going thru the roof. Milk may be $4.50 by the end of the summer, not to mention the price of all other foods.
WHY!!! do these folks in Congress continue to have the unmitigated arrogance to believe they can "HELP" us after all their past failures. Its is really sickening to watch C-Span and listen to so many Reps and Senators say they want to help the (insert name of group here). LEAVE US ALONE!!!!!!
Lets review: Congress has failed to secure the border. They have taken the money that was supposed to be reserved for Social Security and spent it on everything EXCEPT Social Security. NOW, they are trying to "help" us with energy security and they are driving the price of food (for poor people and everyone else) through the roof.
A suggestion for Congress: STOP trying to HELP us.
