Eat Your Corn, Kids Are Starving in Iowa

Did both Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani just say they support corn subsidies because we could face a devastating food shortage?

Romney: “We don’t want to find ourselves in the same position with food supply as we are with energy supply.” Giuliani: “We have to have our own supply of food.”

There are plenty of arguments in defense of ethanol subsidies. As far as I know, impending famine is not one of them.
