As the midterm election is just a few months ahead, Democrats are now in full panic mode in solving the worsening gas prices created by their inept leader Joe Biden.
So, in an attempt to cover up their mess, the GREEN advocate Democrats have proposed a bill making ethanol fuels more readily available to consumers which is way WORSE for the environment than burning traditional fossil fuels as the Department of Energy claims.
That’s it, that was part of their master plan, they thought burning corn in cars will solve our food and energy crisis…
Our friends from WLT commented further 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 saying:
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.

Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is driving a severe global fertilizer shortage causing food prices to rise.

Well, what else can we expect from these inept Democrats, despite these findings 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.
