Donald Trump Bribes Iowa Voters with Ethanol

Sarah Palin, in her deeply misguided endorsement of Donald Trump, said that “crony capitalists” want “bloated budgets” to “suck off them.”

But Trump has shown that the Iowa people are all crony capitalists feeding off bloated budgets. From the Hill:

Donald Trump said Tuesday that federal regulators should increase the amount of ethanol blended into the nation’s gasoline supply.

Speaking at an event hosted by the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association, Trump, a real estate mogul and the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, said the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ought to follow the ethanol volumes Congress set in 2007.

“The EPA should ensure that biofuel … blend levels match the statutory level set by Congress under the [renewable fuel standard],” Trump said.

So there you have it: One crony capitalist is trying to make a deal with a million other crony capitalists. In the process, he is siding with Barack Obama’s EPA and promising to increase damage to the engines of all our cars. How is that going to make America great?

It’s not.

This whole subsidy belongs to a banana republic type of government. When Donald Trump bribes Iowa residents he fits the role of someone wanting to gain power in a banana republic.

The secret of the donor class is they don’t just bribe politicians to get what they want. They bribe us too.
