Republicans Don't Understand Economic Either

According to Henry Hyde, eliminating tariffs on imported ethanol would have no effect on the price of gasoline, going so far as to say “I just don’t see an economic plus in it right now.”

I think what Hyde meant to say was “I just don’t see a political plus in it for me right now.” I’m often left wondering politicians are really this stupid, or if it is just advantageous for them to appear so.
