Heritage Action Launches Call Campaign Against Export-Import Bank Reauthorization

Washington — Today, Heritage Action for America launched an “End Ex-Im” ad campaign.  The phone call campaign will inform constituents in 31 Republican-held districts that their Representative supports reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank, which is a slush fund for corporate welfare.  Heritage Action released the following statement from chief executive officer Michael A. Needham:

“Americans didn’t give Republicans a historic House majority to hand out favors to K Street lobbyists and well-connected special interests.  If lawmakers want to honor their mandate, they’ll allow the bank to expire and focus on advancing policies that create opportunity for all.”
