American politicians sacrifice citizens for ethanol

I've opposed subsidies to corn production and ethanol blending mandates for many years (see this and this argument) as these programs destroy the environment, destabilize agricultural commodity markets, and raise the price of food for the world's poorest.
Bottom Line: America's Congress, in its quest to send extra money to Big Agribusiness, is responsible for undrinkable water, farm poverty, and sick citizens. Fail.
