If Elizabeth Warren is So Anti-Wall Street, Why Does She Support the Ex-Im Bank?

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has a populist reputation of being anti-Wall Street. Last week, she nearly threatened to shut down the government because the Omnibus bill would repeal a section in the Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill that passed in 2010.

What Could We Get for Christmas for the Cost of the Ex-Im Bank?

As the holiday season approaches, Americans are budgeting for Christmas presents, decorations, cards, and of course, lots of delicious food. At such moments, while we are pinching our pennies to maximize holiday cheer, it’s instructive to remember the ways in which government blows through our tax dollars with reckless abandon.

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.

Ex-Im’s Green Energy Corruption Goes Deeper than Solyndra

By now, most people following the continuing saga of the U.S. Export-Import Bank have heard about how it guaranteed loans to now-bankrupt solar energy company Solyndra. Solyndra was a big news story when it went bust, because of the stimulus money it took and the preferential treatment it was given because green energy mandates took preference over sensible investment.

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's Corruption Problem

In addition to the crony capitalist official policies of insuring the exports of big corporations like Boeing and General Electric, it is now clear that the Export-Import Bank’s existence has enabled dozens of instances of fraud. It's time to shut this monster down for good.
