Although not bearing directly upon the subject central to this website’s mission, the U.S. Senate’s decision this weekend to revive the heretofore deceased Export-Import Bank illuminates both the rancid nature of Congress and its inability to exercise anything approaching oversight upon an administration flagrantly abusing its authority. The confirmation by Senator Ted Cruz that Majority Leader McConnell lied in order to resurrect this exemplar of corporate welfare is simply the icing on the cake.

David Harsanyi breaks down this inexplicable decision by Republican leaders-as well as other leadership deficits-in a post for The Federalist which I would urge you all to read, if only to understand what conservatives-including those arguing for a rational immigration policy-are up against on Capitol Hill.
