Export-Import Bank caught doctoring data to benefit big business cronies

When the Export-Import Bank as well as its friends on Capitol Hill and elsewhere talk about how the billions it doles out in taxpayer-backed loans benefits small businesses, they really mean it helps big business. Earlier this month, Reuters reported that Ex-Im, a relic of the New Deal, had "mischaracterized" subsidiaries of 200 large corporations as small businesses:

Hillary Shills for the Ex-Im Bank

Whether or not Hillary Clinton intends to throw her hat in the three ring circus that will be the 2016 presidential elections remains to be seen, but she’s already getting in plenty of practice cozying up to well-monied special interest groups. In response to a recent question about the Export-Import Bank, Clinton said the following:

Conservatives and Liberals Should Agree to End the Export Import Bank

It’s no secret that Washington desperately needs to cut spending. Nearly everyone agrees that national debt levels are unsustainable. The Congressional Budget Office has warned that the nation’s debt is set to jump to 106 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2039. Clearly, we cannot continue down this path.

Corporate America’s Very Own Obama Phone: The Export-Import Bank

The recent debate surrounding the extension of The Export-Import Bank illustrates that the attitude of entitlement is not restricted to individuals demanding government assistance, but that it includes some of the largest U.S. corporations as well. High ranking corporate executives expecting federal backing for their businesses are starting to sound remarkably similar to individuals seeking freebies from the government.

Guess Which Company Gains the Most From The Export-Import Bank

Reauthorization of the U.S. Export-Import Bank is one of the few agenda items that Congress is expected to address when legislators return from their summer break. The Export-Import Bank, which provides financing for foreign buyers of products from U.S. based companies, needs Congressional approval by September 30 to continue its operation.

Mississippi Activists Denied Access to Senator's Office

On Tuesday, August 19th, we went to Senator Thad Cochran's office here in Jackson, Mississippi to deliver letters from grassroots activists. As his constituents, we wanted to make it clear that we DO NOT support the re-authorization of the Export-Import Bank. The government wastes millions of dollars in crony capitalism and flying executives around the world. A seemingly simple statement from voters to their representative. But, to our surprise, Sen. Cochran's staff refused us access to our very own Senator's office to deliver these letters. Check out the photo gallery of our protest.

The Ex-Im Bank Wastes Millions on Travel

As Americans become increasingly aware of the U.S. Export-Import Bank and what it does, calls for its dissolution have increased. The public tolerance for corporate cronyism is at an all-time low, and the Ex-Im Bank’s primary mandate - providing taxpayer loans to companies that are too risky to be secured on the open market - runs directly counter to our instincts for what is right and fair.
