Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has continuously opposed the reauthorization of Ex-Im publicly, but today he decided he will allow the Highway Bill to come to the floor with only two amendments – an amendment to repeal Obamacare and an amendment to reauthorize Ex-Im. We know the Obamacare vote is a show vote because it would require 60 votes to pass. This is the Senate Majority Leader’s way of trying to appease conserva...
