Remember the big fight we had with the GOP establishment last year over the Export-Import Bank? Not only does this represent corporate welfare, it is corporate welfare for foreign companies. Take a look at this article from the U.K. Guardian:
Britain’s BG Group said on Monday it had secured a $1.8 billion (1.1 billion pounds) loan from the Export-Import Bank of the United States, as part of a wider push to diversify its funding options to support major projects.BG, which announced Chris Finlayson as its new chief executive earlier this month, recently agreed a new syndicated facility, reached an agreement with the Japan Bank for International Cooperation and raised money via capital markets.It said it now had undrawn committed bank borrowing facilities of $5.2 billion.
It has also reached an initial agreement with Brazilian Development Bank for up to $1.8 billion of new funding and signed a $500 million credit agreement with Export Development Canada.
