Minority of House Republicans join with Democrats to revive crony Ex-Im Bank, Sell out taxpayers – Again. (List of Members who let taxpayers down – Again.)

Boeing and GE want their Ex-Im Bank. They’ve had taxpayer underwritten loans for so long they feel like they are owed them. As such they have deployed their lobbyists in a full arm twisting offensive. In the chaos surrounding the impending Speaker vacancy the giant corporations want to make sure they get what they have spread money around Congress to get. They are calling in “favors.”

GE and Boeing aren’t going to let the free marketeers win easily. Both companies desperately want their boondoggle. They want their taxpayer support. The companies have even threatened the American people with moving jobs overseas if the crony corps don’t get their way.

I mean, why wouldn’t taxpayers want to support companies which are so ready to leave the USA even though the American people have subsidized their profits (and not just through the Export-Import Bank) for decades?

This is yet another example which shows that both parties, and in this case particularly the Democrats, are corporatist parties. Ex-Im was long considered “corporate welfare” by the Left. But now, with the chance to end the bank, the Dems have bowed completely and totally to their corporate masters. Unabashed crony capitalism on full display.

(From The Hill)

 

But Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, refused to move on a bill, arguing the bank’s financing predominately benefits politically connected corporations.

“This is a small step toward renewing a competitive free-market economy,” Hensarling declared in June as the clock wound down on the bank’s charter.

With Hensarling holding firm, Hoyer and Fincher began reviewing their options.

Hoyer on a Sept. 15 call assured Fred Hochberg, the president of the Ex-Im bank, that he would find a way to get the bank back in business.

Hoyer told Hochberg that he would “raise hell” to get this thing reauthorized, according to a source familiar with the conversation.

One week after that conversation, Hoyer called Fincher to float the idea of a discharge petition. He told Fincher he could deliver full-scale Democratic support, so long as the Republican could get at least 33 Republicans onboard.
