Ding Dong, the Ex-Im Bank Is Dead!

It seems like the liberty movement has taken a bit of a beating lately, with the Supreme Court defending ObamaCare subsidies, the FCC expanding its regulation of the internet, and budgets continuing to spend beyond our means and rack up more national debt. But it’s not all bad news, and at times like this it’s more important than ever to celebrate victories where we can find them. The end of the United States Export-Import Bank is one such victory.

Boeing and the Ex-Im Bank: A Love Story

From the moment Boeing laid eyes on the Export-Import Bank, it was love at first sight. Boeing has benefited from the Ex-Im Bank far more than any other company--especially last year when it secured 68.3 percent of all of the bank’s long-term loan guarantees. Their crony relationship has only strengthened over the years, to the point that people now refer to the Ex-Im as “Boeing’s Bank.”

The Ex-Im Bank: Do You Side With Hillary, Warren, and Reid?

The United States Export-Import Bank was founded in 1934 as yet another one of FDR’s misguided “New Deal” programs. For the past 80 years, the Bank has been an instrument of corporate welfare, handing out taxpayer-backed loans to big corporations and special interest projects, such as green energy.
