Conservatives are Winning!
In 2012, 61-percent of House Republicans voted to reauthorize and expand the Export-Import Bank. Just two years later, party leaders feel compelled to call for its elimination.
Chris Wallace: So straightforward question, you can say it right here. You would allow the Ex-Im Bank to expire in September?
Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) 55%: Yes, because it’s something that the private sector can be able to do.
After this weekend, even the national press cannot help but acknowledge the Export-Import Bank is likely to expire.
