Senate Democrats Hammer McConnell on Ethanol Subsidies

In a press conference featuring several prominent Senate Democrats, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was urged to end tax breaks for ethanol subsidies as part of the debt ceiling negotiations.Earlier this month, McConnell was among many Republican lawmakers who voted to end the ethanol credits but the measure failed. Hammering the commonwealth's senior Senator stances has been a strategy for Democrats in the midst of the debate about the nation's credit, but it's unclear if the ethanol vote will make in headway.Check it out: According to The Hill, McConnell’s office released his comments about reforming tax subsidies, which said the issue needed to be addressed in a broader and separate reform package, not within the debt limit debate.
