Club Responds to NAM Threat


Club for Growth president David McIntosh released a statement after the National Association of Manufacturers said it would stop all donations to Republicans while it fights for renewal of the corrupt Export-Import Bank:

“It makes no sense that NAM wants to punish pro-growth lawmakers who are fighting to lower corporate tax rates, stop the EPA, and expand trade opportunities, all to grab some taxpayer subsidies from Ex-Im that most of their members will never benefit from.”


Here is the original report on NAM that was published on Politico Pro on 8/27/15:

NAM suspends GOP donations over Ex-Im fight:

The National Association of Manufacturers has decided stop all donations to Republican candidates this fall while it focuses on getting the Export-Import Bank reauthorized, a NAM spokeswoman confirmed Thursday.

This is a major move by a monetary heavyweight. The AFL-CIO took a similar route of suspending political donations ahead of the vote on trade promotion authority.
