Export Import Bank

Doug Sachtleben - November 30th, 2016

The Export-Import Bank is a federal agency that uses billions of tax dollars to back foreign business deals for a small handful of large companies. It is a classic Washington example of picking winners and losers. Some U.S. companies are supported by taxpayers, but most are not.

Congressional authorization for Ex-Im lapsed in 2015, and the agency was only reauthorized after some legislative gamesmanship that slipped it into an unrelated transportation funding bill. However, Ex-Im has been unable to approve new deals in excess of $10 million because its board lacks a quorum.

Now, the Obama Administration wants to change the rules to make a quorum unnecessary. To accomplish this last-minute end-around, the president would need the complicity of Congressional Republicans who would slip the rule change in their next massive federal spending bill.

It would be good for Republicans to remember that the American people elected a new president who said Ex-Im, is ‘really not free enterprise,’ calling it, ‘…a one-way street… feather bedding for politicians… and a few companies… that can do very well without it.’

The Export-Import Bank is exactly the kind of bureaucratic swamp that the American people want drained. They don’t want their tax dollars going to a corrupt federal agency that doles out Washington cronyism to a favored few who get an advantage over the vast majority of American businesses that export.

Congressional Republicans need to stand with taxpayers and firmly oppose Obama’s effort. The Export-Import Bank needs to go away, and not be given an expanded opportunity to continue its corruption.

Club for Growth Supports Nomination of Rep. Tom Price as HHS Secretary

Doug Sachtleben - November 29th, 2016

“Dr. Price brings a common sense commitment to free market health care reforms.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement in response to President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Congressman Tom Price to lead the Department of Health and Human Services:

“Tom Price brings something to HHS that’s been missing for a long time: A common sense commitment to free market health care reforms,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “Dr. Price has been a leader in the effort to repeal and replace Obamacare, even signing the Club’s Repeal It! pledge in March 2010. Along the way he’s earned a 91% Club for Growth lifetime score for voting in favor of pro-growth policies. The Club eagerly anticipates his leadership in health care reform that will lower costs and diminish the role of the federal government.”

 

Club for Growth Opposes Obama’s Last Ditch End-Around for Export-Import Bank

Doug Sachtleben - November 29th, 2016

“The Export-Import Bank is exactly the kind of bureaucratic swamp that the American people want drained.”

 

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement in response to reports that the Obama administration wants Congressional Republicans to change the rules for how the Export-Import Bank operates:

 

“The Export-Import Bank is exactly the kind of bureaucratic swamp that the American people want drained,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “In electing Donald Trump, they voted for a candidate who said Ex-Im, is ‘really not free enterprise,’ calling it, ‘…a one-way street… feather bedding for politicians… and a few companies… that can do very well without it.’

 

“Yet now, President Obama wants to make a last-minute rule change to give a handful of Ex-Im bureaucrats the power to approve taxpayer-backed loans for foreign deals that exceed $10 million. Congressional Republicans need to stand with taxpayers and firmly oppose Obama’s effort. The Export-Import Bank is unnecessary government cronyism that needs to go away, and not be given an expanded opportunity to continue its corruption.”
