Fellow Republican Blasts Trump's Anti-Wind Tirade as "IDIOTIC" (Opinions, Editorials & Asides)
Trump
Date: 2019-04-05
Speaking at the National Republican Congressional Committee's annual spring dinner earlier this week, U.S. President "The Donald" Trump said with his ussual disregard for reality and facts:

"If you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations, your house just went down 75 pct in value. And they say the noise causes cancer."

"No, wind's not so good and you have no idea how expensive it is to make those things. They're all made in China and Germany, by the way, just in case you, we don't make them here, essentially." -- Pres. Donald Trump

The Donald's comments were clearly and immediately described as "IDIOTIC" by his fellow Republican, Sen. Chuck Grassely (Iowa). Good on you, Grassely! Contact: Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), www.grassley.senate.gov

Grassley Warns Pruitt to Shape-Up or Ship-Out (Notable Quote)

Date: 2018-05-18
Iowa's senior senator Chuck Grassley (R) is calling for EPA administrator Scott Pruitt to support the Trump Administration's biofuels policies, the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) and the biofuels industry in general. Failing Pruitt's support, Grassely said he'd call for Pruitt's resignation.

"I'm done playing around. I've supported Pruitt but if he pushes changes to RFS that permanently cut ethanol by billions of gallons he will have broken Trump's promise and should step down and let someone else do the job of implementing Trump's (biofuel) agenda. Trump was elected with an agenda; Pruitt was not elected," Grassley said.

Grassley's position is in response to growing farm-state frustration with the EPA's management of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) compelling refiners to use biofuel such as corn-based ethanol. Iowa is a top producer of both corn and ethanol. (Source: Wallaces Farmer, Others, Bloomberg, 17 May, 2018) Contact: Sen. Chuck Grassley (R), www.grassley.senate.gov

"Bait-and-Switch" -- Notable Quote
RFS
Date: 2017-10-13
"It's outrageous that the EPA would change course and propose a reduction in renewable fuel volumes. This seems like a bait-and-switch from the EPA's prior proposal and from assurances from the President himself and Cabinet secretaries in my office prior to confirmation for their strong support of renewable fuels." -- Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa)
