    Thursday Apr 23 | News Max

    When he was running for president in 2008, Barack Obama criticized the Export-Import Bank as "little more than a fund for corporate welfare" and suggested it was an example of a federal program that ought to go. Upon entering the White House, however, Obama reversed himself and morphed into a cheerleader for the bank, say conservatives and libertarians who are working to persuade Congress not to reauthorize the program, which seeks to help U.S. companies sell their products overseas by guaranteeing loans to foreign customers.

    Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., says he's lobbying to get the Air Force to change its decision to inactivate the 440th Airlift Wing because it would harm the ability of the Army's Global Response Force to fly from Fort Bragg to trouble spots in any part of the world in 18 hours or less. "Why on Earth we would jeopardize the training and readiness in that context - the only place on the planet where we do that? It just doesn't make sense to me," Tillis said in an interview Thursday following the release two days earlier of a congressionally mandated Air Force report on its plans for the airlift wing.

Renee Ellmers of North Carolina, the House GOP is trying to resurrect the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, though Ellmers has demanded another language change in the bill - an edit that would again reduce the number of unborn children the act would protect. On the eve of the March for Life in January in Washington, D.C., the Pain Capable bill - which would prohibit abortions past the fifth month of pregnancy - was pulled from the House floor when Ellmers and some colleagues decided that the bill they had approved and passed in 2013 was no longer a bill they could support.
