Does. Not. Quite. Grasp. Concept.
Lori Montgomery at the WaPo is enjoying this too much:
A majority of Senate Republicans appeared to break Tuesday with two decades of GOP orthodoxy against higher taxes, voting to advance a plan to abruptly cancel billions of dollars in annual tax credits for ethanol blenders.
I know Grover Norquist has -- regrettably -- held their feet to the fire on this. But outside his office, ADM, and the State of Iowa, I don't think you'll hear one Republican upset with the 34.
UPDATE: IBD is not real happy with the other 13.
Subsidies: How is it that the party loudly proclaiming how the government shouldn't "pick winners and losers" could only manage to get 34 senators to oppose one of the most egregious examples of federal industrial policy?
