Ted Cruz -- ethanol's best friend

Those who live and die by corporatism and taxpayer-funded subsidies have determined to go all-in to stop Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, from winning the Iowa Caucuses in a few weeks. Apparently Mr. Cruz believes too much in freedom and limited government for these people's tastes. It won't work, because these people have lost almost all their political clout for various reasons.
