Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) decided to allow an amendment to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank to be attached to the transportation bill Friday morning. FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
"Thank you Sen. Cruz for shining light on Mitch McConnell's lies. He says he opposes the cronyist piggybank that is the Export-Import Bank, but then allows for its reauthorization on to the transportation bill to make sure it passes."
"We are encouraging all our activists to contact Mitch McConnell and tell him to stop selling out America. We don't need a bank to prop up the likes of Boeing and General Electric with taxpayer dollars, and we don't need the our senators lying to us."
