Episode 94: Export-Import Bank ReAuthorization


The ExIm Bank continues to twist in the Washington wind as Republican supporters in Congress use a discharge petition to force a vote over the objections of House Financial Committee Chairman, Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R., Texas).  Even if passed by the House, any reauthorization will still have to be passed by the Senate, likely as a rider to another bill.  In the meantime, thousands of employees in the U.S. are losing their jobs as major companies move production work to other countries that have an export-import banking mechanism, and at least one factory in Wisconsin is in the process of being shutdown.  Want to hear more?
