Exporting Cowardice, Importing Cynicism

MEDIA ALERT: This morning (Thursday), Jim Babka guest-hosts a radio talk-show. See details below today's…

 

ACTION ITEM

 

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.

 

This means…

 

* 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.
