A D M reaps reward
All hail the all powerful Archer Daniel Midland co. grand contributor to politicians of all persuasions... They recieve a 51 cent subsidy on every gallon of ethanol they produce and they produce most of the ethanol used in the US somewhere around 100 million gallons. An attachment to the energy bill mandates a 5 to 8 billion gallon increase in ethanol use, a product that reduces gas mileage, does nothing to improve air quality, and may even reduce the quality according to the EPA . Politicians from the corn growing states along with the lickspittles of congress are frothing at the mouth for the oppurtunity to award their benefactor.
