Why would the government want to do away with something that helps small businesses compete in the world market?? That's what this bill will do. Our economic competitors subsidize their exports. Think about it, if we fail to follow suit using the Ex-Im Bank for small businesses so that they can continue to compete with big businesses in the US and the subsidized exports from other countries. This would cost the U.S. jobs and hit small businesses the hardest. These are consequences we can’t afford.
