Rep. Perry stands up for taxpayers against corporate welfare
HARRISBURG – Americans for Prosperity today applauded Representative Scott Perry for publicly opposing reauthorization of the Export Import bank. In an op-ed today Representative Perry explained that the bank "subsidizes some of the wealthiest corporations in the world, often based solely on ideological political considerations." Americans for Prosperity Pennsylvania State Director Beth Anne Mumford provided the following statement:
"We applaud Representative Perry for standing up for taxpayers against the special interests lobbying him to reauthorize the Export-Import bank. The Export-Import bank is nothing more than a slush fund for corporate welfare for politically connected corporations. Congress should not be in the business of picking economic winners and losers and subsidizing big corporations. It’s time to break the bank."
Americans for Prosperity has been leading the grassroots push to let the bank’s charter expire on June 30th. Over the next few weeks Americans for Prosperity will mobilize it’s 2.4 million activists to call the 70+ Republicans who are still on the fence about this issue and tell them to break the bank.
