The ethanol program is and always will be a government good ol' boy network of corruption, paybacks and profiteering on the backs of US taxpayers. The billions of bushels of FOOD CROPS poured down our gas tanks, instead of feeding our PEOPLE and the rest of the world. The taxpayer funded subsidies to have the corn grown. The taxpayer funded subsidies to the ethanol manufacturers, because there really is no profit in making the stuff. The cut in fuel efficiency of our vehicles because of having to use it. And taxed one more time on the gas from the pump as we fill up.
