Ethanol Subsidies pushed by both Bush and Obama have created an “ecological disaster.” Increased food prices.

How many times do we need to learn this lesson? Central planning, big sweeping, one size fits all policies do not work. They are filled with waste, crony capitalism, and all sorts of unintended consequences which often are worse than the issue the original policy was created to ameliorate.

This is absolutely the case with corn ethanol subsidies.

How could Obamacare be THIS screwed up? Premiums rising, websites crashing, policies canceled.

IRS: Cheapest Obamacare Plan Will Be $20,000 Per Family*

This is for the “bronze” plan.

Tell me who other than the insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies benefit from Obamacare? The poorest Americans were covered under Medicaid. Most other people were covered under their employers. The self-employed could buy fairly good plans for far less than $20,000 per year per family.
