Democrats unanimous for corporate welfare

Sallie James notes,
the U.S. Senate in a 78 to 20 vote elected to follow the House’s lead (330 to 93, in that case) to re-authorize, with a bigger budget, the Export-Import Bank of the United States until 2014.
Even though, as she links to Brian Darling, who reminds us, on September 22, 2008, Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)
talked about duplication in government programs and advocated cutting those programs.  The Senator hammered the Export-Import Bank “that’s become little more than a fund for corporate welfare.”
