As the midterm election is a mere few months ahead of us, and the Democrats are now completely in panic mode to resolve the worsening gas costs orchestrated by their feckless leader Joe Biden. In an effort to cover up their mess, the GREEN supporter Democrats have actually proposed a bill making ethanol fuels derived mainly from corn more easily offered to customers which is far WORSE for the environment than burning standard fossil fuels as the Department of Energy claims.
That’s it, that became part of their master plan, they believed burning corn in automobiles will resolve our food and energy crisis … which makes perfect sense whilst we’re also in the early stages of a major food shortage… right… RIGHT??
Our good friends from WLT commented even more about these hypocrites:
“What can we expect from the same people who deny the obvious benefits of nuclear power—opting instead for mineral-based energy such as solar panels and electric vehicles running on massive batteries?
Critics wasted no time in lambasting Democrats, and the wider U.S. government, for entertaining such policies…”
And here’s what the critics are stating:
If you’re currently enjoying the Democrat’s “Build Back Better” plan, then you are really going to love the new “Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act”.
Like the Patriot Act and Affordable Care Act, they always name the bills the opposite of what they actually mean. Buckle up.

Department of Energy study directly refutes the idea of burning ethanol fuel, according to a Reuters report:
Corn-based ethanol, which for years has been mixed in huge quantities into gasoline sold at U.S. pumps, is likely a much bigger contributor to global warming than straight gasoline, according to a study published Monday.
The study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, contradicts previous research commissioned by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) showing ethanol and other biofuels to be relatively green.

Well, what else can we get out of these unhinged Democrats, regardless of these findings that scream to the contrary they still passed the bill as reported by The Hill:.
“On the energy side, it would remove summertime restrictions on the sale of a 15 percent ethanol blend, a policy similar to provisions included in an executive order signed by President Biden earlier this month.
It would also appropriate $200 million to expand biofuel infrastructure and equipment.
The measure passed the chamber 221-204 in a largely party-line vote, with five Democrats voting against it and seven Republicans in favor.”
