Saxby must have spent too much time at the Capitol Hill Club while the scotch was flowing.
U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss said he’s warned President Bush that vetoing the farm bill could hurt presumptive GOP nominee John McCain in reliably Republican states this fall.
“If they get turned off by Republicans it’s going to make it tough for John to get those votes,” the Georgia Republican told reporters following a speech to the state party’s annual convention on Friday.
I think if you substitute the words “John McCain” for “Saxby Chambliss” you’ll have a better sense of what he means.
Amazing how we can import Brazilian ethanol for a heck of a lot cheaper that we make corn based ethanol, but the farm industry has been able to get massive import tariffs so the imported ethanol is priced out. And frankly, there are plenty of other resources from which we can make ethanol without driving up the price of basic foodstuffs.
There is bipartisan retardation when it comes to ethanol issues.
