The idiot governor of Iowa has come out today saying he wants Ted Cruz defeated because he doesn’t support ethanol subsidies:
DES MOINES REGISTER – “Ted Cruz is ahead right now. What we’re trying to do is educate the people in the state of Iowa. He is the biggest opponent of renewable fuels. He actually introduced a bill in 2013 to immediately eliminate the Renewable Fuel Standard. He’s heavily financed by Big Oil. So we think once Iowans realize that fact, they might find other things attractive but he could be very damaging to our state,” Branstad said.
Branstad added that Cruz “hasn’t supported renewable fuels, and I think it would be a big mistake for Iowa to support him.”
Asked if he would want to see Cruz defeated, Branstad said “yes.”
Once again the establishment comes out against Ted Cruz, which tells you that he’s exactly the guy we need in Washington. Cruz is right about the government not picking winners and losers and in this case ethanol subsidies are a loser.
As Cruz has said repeatedly, he completely supports ethanol as an alternative energy source just as he supports all the other alternative energy sources. It’s just that he believes the free market should be the arbiter and not the government.
