Make your vote count at the Ex-Im Bank Fly-In and America’s Small Business Summit

So, let’s recap: of all the huge, super-bloated and inefficiently run US Government agencies, which are financed with taxpayers’ money and could certainly use lots of reform, our brilliant lawmakers (you know who you are) are picking on a tiny 400 person agency – US Ex-Im Bank, which returns hundreds of millions of dollars annually to the US Treasury (in the real world we say, it is profitable) and has an 80-year track record of successful support of US exports.

Meanwhile, the amount of taxpayers’ money expended on various congressional hearings debating Ex-Im’s reauthorization and pro/con Ex-Im political campaigns has been in the tens of millions of dollars. Add to this with Congressmen’ and bank management’s wasted time, damage to our country’s image, reduced morale of the bank staff staff, as well as negative impact on our nation’s export trade, and the damage from this egregious process quickly moves into billions of dollars . All because of someone’s obtuse political agenda…

Time to put a stop to this and make our voices heard. YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO ATTEND:
