Just last week, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued partial guidance to increase ethanolcontent in gasoline to 15% , even though ethanol’s supposed benefits have been solidly debunked.Studies by the EPA have shown that ethanol increases carbon emissions, drives up costs of corn and food products, hinders engine efficiency, and does little to make our nation more energy independent.
In short, the EPA’s ethanol policy is a ploy, designed to prop up a failed industry, with yet another multi-billion dollar bailout from taxpayers.What really bothers me about the blame game and lack of integrity, besides the obvious childish pointing of the finger at GW Bush and the Republicans, is the familiarity of the use of a scape-goat. Think about it. What dynamic speaker blamed a group of people and worked up his audiences into a frothing frenzy of blame and hate? Ya. I don't hear alot of HOPE, just blame. Time for the POTUS and his crew to be voted out in mass.
