That’s the Obama trademark….subsidize anything not oil…..How can any true conservative republican approve of wasting billions of taxpayer money to pick winners & losers in agriculture? or any other private business. It’s called Ethanol. More billions of money has gone into this losing subsidy & it’s mandates then any other energy subsidies. After 30 years Ethanol is so inefficient that it still cannot stand on it own.

Even the environmentalists have stopped support for this because the environmental footprint is greater to produce a gallon of ethanol than a gallon of gas. You should consider Solondra a bargain compared to the Luger Solondra. Check where Dick Luger gets his money over the years? Start with the powerful corn lobby. Just one Dairy Farmers opinion, because I and others livestock people that compete against Ethanol for Corn are really tired of having our taxes used to put us out business.

This doesn’t ever consider the cost to the retail grocery shoppers at the grocery store. If you read your labels, 75% of processed foods has some form of corn or corn based product in the ingredients. High Fructose Corn Syrup is one common one, very bad for health. That’s why you are starting to see, “No High Fructose Corn Syrup” on labels! I found only Log Cabin Syrup at Walmart contains none. This was proudly touted across the front Label.

The others had in the ingredients first ingredient or second…….This is not syrup….it is manufactured as sugar alcohol from ethanol. So how about we drill for the oil we have, use the coal, the natural gas & stop burning up our food! For the first time ever in 2011 we burned up more corn, then we used for all sectors of livestock. Leave the technology to private developers to develop cost affective sources. You can’t pay your bills on ideology! Vote No On the King of Subsidy supporters
