Lowering food prices: rescind corn ethanol subsidy and…

What’s causing the spike in food prices which affect us all?

The corn ethanol subsidy which diverts corn from livestock feed to inefficient use as fuel. Call your Senators and Congressperson’s local offices (in front section of phone book under government) and tell them you want this subsidy rescinded.

A second cause of high food prices are high gas prices because your food has to be trucked to your local market and trucks use fuel.

Democrats like high gas prices because they force conservation (true) and encourage the search for alternate fuels (true) but IN THE MEANTIME they impoverish our citizens and enrich our enemies, the Axis of oil.

Solution: Vote for Republicans who support Drill Here, Drill Now.
