Toomey and Feinstein Set to Use Summer Recess to Raise Big Oil Campaign Donations

Republican Senator Pat Toomey (PA) and Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA) have teamed up to perform a modern day Billy Flynn/Roxie Hart/Velma Kelly razzle-dazzle flimflam song and dance show to dismantle the Renewable Fuel Standard, in what I can only imagine to be a scheme to raise campaign donations for their respective parties.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Pat Toomey, er, I mean Billy Flynn:
Meanwhile, in real life... the fact is that ethanol is cleaner, safer, more powerful, less expensive than gasoline, healthier, and it's completely domestically produced. In the hundreds of years that ethanol has been used as a fuel (yes, its use as a fuel predates the invention of the internal combustion engine) no American soldier, sailor, marine, coast guardsman, or airman ever died in any foreign war defending ethanol production.
There's a reason why ethanol is blended into gasoline.
Pat Toomey is one of the politicians who would like to continue hoodwinking the public. He has teamed up with one of the Democrat politicians to make it appear as if this is a bipartisan, objective position. It's not, it's just a sleazy way to get Big Oil campaign donations. In the meantime, the result is that it's a bipartisan move designed to kill and sicken people.
The only alternative to using ethanol to mitigate engine knock would be for the oil companies to add more benzene and other so-called aromatics into the blend. Aromatics are all poison, and they cost more than ethanol.
Incidentally, outside of North America, the oil industry agrees that ethanol is cleaner, safer, more powerful, less expensive than gasoline, healthier than gasoline. I detailed this in my report "THE HYPOCRISY OF BIG OIL.".
Don't get me wrong, song and dances can be very entertaining, but we don't need any more soft shoe routines from the oil industry and their lap dummies.
