JOHN FUND: Moment Of Truth On Corporate Welfare: By choosing to end the Export-Import Bank, the GOP can zero out a destructive government program. “It seems like decades since Republicans have been able to permanently zero out a government program of any size.
Decades? I I’m nearly seven decades old, and I can’t remember the GOP ever zeroing out any government program.
The truth is, the GOP is just as statist-minded as is the Democrat Party, and has been ever since reconstituting itself during the Great Depression.
My prediction: The GOP will not zero out the Import-Export bank. They’ll utter lots of pleasing, deceptive soundbites to make themselves look good, but in the end, they will not do it.
