Incoming Speaker of the House Paul Ryan blasts Fincher’s Export-Import Bank maneuver:
“This thing is crony capitalism,” said Ryan.
“I think there are plenty other ways to expand opportunity in this country, and corporate welfare is not one of them,” Ryan added. “We should be exporting democratic capitalism, not crony capitalism.”
Slick career move there, Fincher. Not only did you resurrect a taxpayer boondoggle, you did it by getting into bed with Nancy Pelosi while at the same time pissing off your incoming Speaker.
We guess next on Fincher’s “To Do” list is raising the gas tax and expanding Obamacare. It would certainly fit the pattern.
