Pelosi Wants More Ethanol In Gas

Nancy Pelosi is determined to have everything her way. Now she's back to ethanol, and how she wants to mandate higher percentages of ethanol in gasoline -- to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

Won't work. Hasn't worked before, so why now. Besides, food should be used to feed people, not cars.

I've already written on this subject on how Ethanol lowers gas mileage.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Monday that she supported a higher ethanol-to-gasoline blend rate as a way to reduce reliance on petroleum imports.

"It seems to me we should be able to do that," Pelosi told reporters after speaking to the National Farmers Union convention.

At present, gasoline may contain up to 10 percent fuel ethanol, made mostly from corn (maize). An ethanol trade group asked the Environmental Protection Agency on Friday to allow blends of up to 15 percent ethanol in motor fuel.

I really don't have much more to say on the matter, except that is there anyone out there is as outraged as I am on the way our government is going in trying to control every last bit of our lives, from birth to death -- and even after?
