Senate vote marks start of end for ethanol subsidies

Post by gigichicago on Thu Jun 16, 2011 7:10 pm

Great news, people. We have been complaining and telling the people in Washington to end subsidies. This may be the beginning to a fight that will stop all this corruption and support our social programs. YES!

DON'T STOP COMPLAINING TO YOUR REPRESENTATIVES, THEY ARE LISTENING!!!

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Senate voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to eliminate billions of dollars in support for the U.S. ethanol industry, sending a strong message that the era of big taxpayer support for biofuels is ending.

The 73-27 vote may ultimately be symbolic since the White House has vowed not to repeal ethanol subsidies fully and the bill the repeal language is attached to is not expected to make it into law. But it underscores the growing desperation to find savings in a budget crisis that is forcing both sides of the aisle to consider sacrificing once-sacred government programs.

"Ending this wasteful handout would ensure taxpayers no longer subsidize the already profitable corn ethanol industry," Democratic Senator Frank Lautenberg said."

I am not sure if we are still diverting corn into Auto-fuel...
However if we are this really has to stop...as it also drives up the price of food...
Then if you factor in Farm subsides that are probably still in place to pay giant agri-business NOT to grow Corn to keep the price high...

We should probably still fund research project that convert bio-sludge into fuel, although in a few decades that sludge maybecome food also...

I wonder if some Bio-sludge/algae is more flavorful than others???
