Congressman admits ethanol was a BIG mistake

Ok, this is progress...now if they can admit THAT mistake maybe they can move forward to admit about 10 million other mistakes. Congress is a complete disaster when they try to make fine grained decisions of any type. We would all be much better off if Congress would meet for no more than 10 days max and then GO HOME!


Representative Jim McGovern, Democrat of Massachusetts, said he had come to realize that Congress made a mistake in backing biofuels, not anticipating the impact on food costs. He said Congress needed to reconsider its policy, though he acknowledged that would be difficult.

“If there was a secret vote, there is a pretty large number of people who would like to reassess what we are doing,” he said.
