Corny Kenny Continues Attack on Farmers

The Associated Press wrote a stunning piece on how Missouri’s ethanol mandate, supported by corn grower and Congressman Kenny Hulshof, is hurting farmers.

One comment of many in correspondent David Lieb’s piece clearly shows how Corny Kenny’s mandate is affecting the way of life in rural Missouri:

About his family’s hog farm David Pitts, 77, of Wright County said: “We just can’t afford to feed them. Ethanol is not going to last. It’s just too bad that a lot of people like us are going to be out and are never going to be back in business.”

It is too bad Congressman. It’s too bad that while you’re getting rich other people are suffering because of your greed. It’s too bad that moms and dads in Missouri who are trying to set good examples for their kids by getting up and going to work every day are struggling to pay for $4 gallon gas because of the ethanol mandate that puts money in your pocket.

How much is enough Congressman? How much longer do Missourians have to suffer for your selfishness?
