To be fair the Republicans have been the party of big business and big government for a long time too.
But for all the talk of “ending corporate welfare” we’ve heard over the years from the Democrats it sure is disappointing to see how quickly the Dems have abandoned this rhetoric to defend the billion dollar, taxpayer funded corporate slush fund which is the Export-Import Bank of the United States, aka “Boeing’s Bank.”
