Cruz Gets it Right on Ethanol

Daniel Horowitz, Conservative Review

Coming off the heels of Obama’s imperial presidency, is it too much to ask for candidates to oppose a scheme using the boot of government to force individuals to purchase a bad product – all for the purpose of enriching parochial interests? No, we are not talking about Obamacare, although it would be nice for every candidate to publicly declare his or her intention to repeal every word of the law.
