Key Vote Alert – “NO” on Renewing the Ex-Im Bank

Andrew Roth - October 23rd, 2015

KEY VOTE ALERT

“NO” on Renewing the Export-Import Bank

“NO” on signing Discharge Petition (#0002)

The Club for Growth urges all House members to oppose any vote that reauthorizes the Export-Import Bank.  The Club also urges members to not sign the discharge petition (#0002) that would force the House to consider such a bill.  A vote could occur within days.  The vote will be included in the Club for Growth’s 2015 Congressional Scorecard.  If a member signs the discharge petition in addition to supporting the bill, the vote will be more heavily weighted on the scorecard.  Members who remove their names from the petition will receive no penalty if they do so ahead of the vote.

The Export-Import Bank is a slush fund for corporate welfare that is riddled with corruption.  It should not be reauthorized, especially in a manner that allows a small number of liberal Republicans to defy the GOP-controlled House and force the issue with the support of big government Democrats.  We urge all members devoted to limited government to not sign this petition or support the bill.

Our Congressional Scorecard for the 114th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public.
