  1. House GOP split jeopardizes trade dealRead the original story w/Photo

    21 hrs ago | Politico

    Democrats in Congress are in open warfare with President Barack Obama over his pitch for fast-track authority to negotiate trade deals, but conservative dissenters are conducting their fight quietly behind closed doors - even though they may be the key to approving the deal.

If the feds wrote a check to Boeing for $100 million, would they then let the Ex-Im Bank die a merciful and long overdue death? I ask this because the airplane manufacturing company is, of course, the largest beneficiary of the Export-Import Bank . The bank provides subsidized loans and insurance contracts to foreign companies that buy American exports.

    Here's a half-serious question: How much do taxpayers have to pay off Boeing to make the Export-Import Bank finally and irrevocably go away? If the feds wrote a check to Boeing for $100 million, would they then let the Ex-Im Bank fade away after the current portfolio winds down?
