Conservatives to Congress: “Don’t Reauthorize Ex-Im Bank”


Atlanta, Ga.On Wednesday, Tea Party Patriots, along with other conservative leaders, will host a press conference to call on the leadership of the U.S. House and U.S. Senate to eliminate any path to reauthorization of the Export-Import bank in upcoming legislation being considered by Congress.

“We have consistently opposed the Ex-Im Bank’s reauthorization because the Bank represents everything that is wrong with Washington, DC,” said Jenny Beth Martin, President and Co-Founder of Tea Party Patriots. “It is the worst combination of crony capitalism, back-room deals, corporate welfare, and abuse of tax dollars. The death of the Ex-Im Bank is long overdue, and we encourage Congress to resist the urge to bring the Ex-Im Bank back to life.”
