Which Piper Do I Make The Check Out To?

Children Of The Corn:
(emphasis mine)

Look long and hard bitch.
See, what confuses me here, is the fact that literally everyone wants to lower our dependence on foreign oil, but now some are talking about importing ethanol? Are we not just swapping one evil for another?

Ethanol isn't cheap to make. Other countries have already been in the business of making it for several years now, so it's probably cheaper for them to make it than it is for us. Lower tariffs on it and it will most likely be cheaper to import than to make here, thus creating the same gaddamn market for imported fuel we already have with oil.

But, in answer to the original question, you may not want to piss off Iowa. There are a lot of corn fields there.
She'll probably dream up some sort of new subsidy for corn farmers. Which of course, will come out of our paychecks. We'll pay extra for ethanol one way or another.
