I will never get guys like Dent.
Check that, I get them. I just don’t know how they do what they do.
(From The National Review)
While Republicans are failing to repeal Obamacare and implement tax reform, they are nonetheless very effective at bending the rules and walking all over their promise to return to regular order so that they can promote the interests of the powerful corporations that benefit from the Export-Import Bank.
And as always, Representative Charlie Dent (R., Pa.) is leading the charge. Yesterday, Dent got an amendment added to the State Department Appropriations bill to change the quorum requirements for the Ex-Im Bank so that it can authorize deals that are over $10 million (guaranteed with your tax dollars, of course) without the current three-board-member requirement and without a chairman.
