I believe ethanol subsidies were done under the Bush administration. We have to be honest about this issue.

The sad thing about subsudies is that they are only used in industries that can't find a customer. They become dependent on these things because of that and the minute you threaten to undo them you destroy those industries. Can you see why big corporations like big government? It is the only thing that can protect them from the nasty free market thing.

If they weren't the first state in the primaries they would be completely ignored.

Yep, any government at all = not America. You're a fool!

The rich use to pay 3 times as much taxes and Iowa was still America. Your idea of not helping anyone or having any government institutions makes you unAmerican. Makes you a fucking idiot.


And bernie and the hil hate America to the core.

Please provide the names the the heads of the following Departments..... Education, Energy, HUD, Agriculture, Interior, HHS, Commerce, Labor and Transportation under.....

George Washington, and Abraham Lincoln?

I mean they must have been vital national interests, even back then, right? Since they're indispensable now, right?

Please provide the Article or Section of the Constitution that spells out the indispensable Cabinet positions.

They're called Americans Frank57. Last I checked, it wasn't illegal to hold views.

Instead of giving Iowa all those ethanol subsidies they should use that money for science, education, and infrastructure.

Iowa where 43% identify as Socialists lives on Ethanol subsidies. Who the fuck cares what they think?

Just scrap it as State altogether, fold it up into HUD or the EPA
You care about them bout as much as they care about libertardians such as yourself whining about shit like ethanol subsidies.

Article I, Section 8; which provides the full list of topics the US Government has legitimate power over.

God bless Iowans, they put up with these politicians for months-on-end now and for the most part kept them out of Arizona. Heaven knows we suffer enough dealing with our own.
