Exporting Cowardice, Importing Cynicism
The Export-Import Bank is a corporate welfare scheme that extends credit to Big Business at better rates than they could get in a free market. It’s unconstitutional and unnecessary.
But Congressional “leaders” want to keep it alive through a gutless move that provoked me to demand passage of Downsize DC’s One Subject at a Time Act.
Please do the same. You may copy or edit this letter …
Renewal of the Export-Import Bank’s charter was attached to the Continuing Resolution (CR) bill that prevents a government shutdown.
* Your corporate cronies will continue to get undeserved favors
Opponents of the Bank will be blamed if there’s a shutdown
You dodge a vote about the Bank on its own merits before the election
I DO NOT CONSENT to this cowardly, cynical move!!
The One Subject at a Time Act (OSTA) would prevent this this kind of thing. It bans the combination of unrelated bills into one.
You’re my employee. I demand that you TAKE A STAND.
You must OPPOSE the Export-Import Bank, even at the risk of a shutdown.
And you must SPONSOR and PASS the One Subject at a Time Act.
