FreedomWorks Foundation Submits Formal Comment to EPA Calling for Continued Ethanol Reform

The Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) is a federal mandate that requires gradually increasing amounts of biofuels such as corn-based ethanol and other experimental biofuels to be blended into the nation's fuel supply.

New EPA Mandated Ethanol Fuel Harms Vehicles

The EPA's latest biofuel initiative may cause substantial damage to vehicles, but why let the effects of bad policy get in the way of  implementing unnecessary, burdensome policy?

Ethanol – Government Induced Cronyism

Democracy and Power 114: The Power PlayersWho actually controls the force of government?   Politicians and interest groups control the American political process.  Special-interest groups – big business, big unions, education, seniors, and a multitude of others - seek special privileges: tax breaks, subsidies, exclusive legislation, etc.  Interest groups give enormous money to political campaigns, and receive gigantic benefits in return.

Time To Crop Government Out of The Energy Sector

Whenever our bloated federal government comes up with a grand, new scheme, the law of “unintended consequences” strikes hard and fast. The energy policies of both Presidents Obama and Bush give a striking example of the harm that a well-meaning government can cause. At a time when gas prices are at their higher level yet, it makes sense that we should be looking to other forms of fuel to put into our cars and churn out of our factories. Thus, the two previous administrations, with the support of many politicians, have subsidized the conversion of crops into biofuels.

Subsidizing Ethanol: Sci-Fi Nightmare

The government is continuing to seek out alternative energy sources, but the solutions should not come at the expense of the American consumer. Government subsidies of ethanol can only have negative consequences. It will continue to destabilize our fragile economy and raise food prices to benefit a few politicians and corn lobbyists, while doing nothing to further the search for effective alternative energy.

Starvation only the latest good argument against ethanol

For various reasons, people on both sides of the political aisle, though more Democrats than Republicans, have supported America's ethanol policy...a policy which is not just silly but also dangerous. There's been a lot of press lately about food shortages in the third world caused in part by America and Europe's ethanol policy, but that's only the latest reason to oppose ethanol subsidies and mandates.
