Thanks to their leader Joe Biden’s screw up on the worsening gas prices, Democrats have moved into full panic mode attempting to come up with a quick fix solution as the midterm election draws near.
And that quick fix is GREEN advocate Democrats proposing a bill which makes ethanol fuels more readily available to consumers, despite the fact that it is so much worse for the environment than traditional fossil fuels, according to the Department of Energy.
That’s all there is to it, burning corn in Americans’ vehicles is supposed to solve the food and energy crisis.
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.

A Reuters report indicates that the Department of Energy directly refutes the idea of burning ethanol fuel:
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, we certainly cannot say we’re surprised with these inept Democrats, as despite these findings, they still passed the bill, according to 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.
