Abolish the giveaways

Attention congressmen and senators: I have read that the U.S. is now exporting more petroleum products, oil and gas than it imports. If this is the case, then why are we taxpayers subsidizing the great agricultural conglomerates that grow corn for ethanol? Could it be that these companies and the politicians that they support very much like the risk-free profits they are enjoying?

In view of the huge deficits, would it not be prudent to abolish these huge giveaways?
