Tell Senators: Oppose the Reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank!

In 2008, Obama called the Export-Import Bank "little more than a fund for corporate welfare." Yet today, in his reelection bid, he is urging companies to "join the fight" to save the Ex-Im bank.

URGENT ALERT: Wednesday, May 09, the House voted on H.R. 2072, to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im). HARRY REID IS PUSHING A SIMILAR VOTE IN THE SENATE SOON, S. 1547.

Please contact your Senators right now and tell them to vote NO to the Ex-Im. Send your personalized message immediately, the vote is imminent!

Obama wants to reauthorize Ex-Im’s charter AND expand their borrowing capacity, all at great cost to the American taxpayer.

Ex-Im’s mission statement says it “assume[s] credit and country risks that the private sector is unable or unwilling to accept.”  That means Ex-Im is a high risk, low-reward program that increases taxpayer exposure to bad loans and causes more money siphon through the government, who now gets to decide who profits and who doesn’t.

This is the next Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, for exporters!

Obama has flip-flopped on his support of Ex-Im. In 2008, during a campaign speech in Green Bay, Wisconsin, then-Senator Obama called the Export-Import Bank “little more than a fund for corporate welfare.” Yet today, in his bid to get re-elected, President Obama is urging companies to “join the fight over the U.S. Export-Import Bank.”

Message the Senate right now and tell them to vote NO on the Export-Import Bank reauthorization!

Iam sure you are getting a little tired of me signing petitions, but it is time for America and our representatives to put a stop to bailouts, handouts and whatever else you want to call them. Obama is a disgrace and does not deserve to be called president. Stop him, Harry Reid and Nancy before they do any more damage.

Also I want to know why Spain will be counting our votes in November for the Presidential Election. And I want to know if you know about agenda 21, the New world order, and Shara Law getting into our courts.
