Senate Votes to Repeal Ethanol Tax Credits
A... good.The Senate on Thursday voted to repeal billions in ethanol tax credits, after an identical proposal failed just two days earlier.
In a bipartisan 73-27 vote, the Senate stripped about $6 billion a year in credits from the industry. The same proposal from Republican Sen. Tom Coburn failed on Tuesday, but only because Democrats were peeved at him for forcing a vote on his amendment. When an identical amendment by Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein came up Thursday, Democrats and Republicans overwhelmingly supported it.
The amendment would repeal the credits and dedicate them to deficit reduction.
At the same time, the Senate rejected an effort to eliminate a government program that supports the distribution of ethanol. The two votes sent mixed signals about federal support for a Farm Belt industry that is in danger of becoming a casualty of budget cutting efforts.
The measure that was defeated would have eliminated government funding for ethanol blender pumps and storage facilities, which are the infrastructure the industry says it needs to get its product to consumers. The House passed a similar measure Thursday and added it to an agriculture spending bill.
B... Proof Democrats are hypocritical asshats
⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
The similarities between the stupidities that brought us this giant ethanol boondoggle, and the push to harness "man-made global warming", are amazing !
Carbon-credits and carbon-taxes would be like the ethanol program on high-octane steroids.
