There Are TWO Parts to the Ethanol Problem, Sen. Coburn

Well, Coburn seems to have gotten Part One right:

The GOP wants to defund ethanol subsidies, which would save $60 billion in ten years, and Senator Tom Coburn wants to end a critical tax credit as well.

That would be the 45 cents/gal tax credit which so far has popped $31Bn into the Corn-A-Holing crowd.

However, that would drain only the north half of the swamp.

The rest of it?

DROP THE MANDATE! There is absolutely no reason to burn food. There's no good "ecological" reason and there is no moral justification, either.
