Export-Import Bank Politics

Politico’s Zachary Warmbrodt has an excellent–and thorough–writeup on the current state of Export-Import Bank politics, covering all sides. He also quotes me at the end:

Conservative opponents of the bank are making clear they’ll resist entreaties by McHenry and others to bring them along for reauthorization.

“He’s not going to succeed with us — that’s for sure,” Competitive Enterprise Institute senior fellow Ryan Young said. “We’re standing by our principles.”

I’m a (classical) liberal, not a conservative, but the statement is still true. The more company, the merrier on that front, regardless of party.
