The ethanol mandate came from the Clinton Administration. Then EPA Director Carol Browner
mandated the use of ethanol as an oxygenate in gasoline to reduce certain types of harmful
vehicle tailpipe emissions.
You'll find a sticker or notice on the gas pump to this effect when you buy gas for your car.
Ethanol was the preferred alternative to the chemical MTBE.
Browner and Clinton are both Democrats. No idea if they are Marxists. Browner is a
member of the Socialist International, and thus may be a Marxist. You could ask her.
