More Legislative Logrolling with the CR

More Legislative Logrolling with the CR

In case you didn't catch it, the Republican lead House voted to include the extension of the Ex-Im Bank in yet another Continuing Resolution Click Here to Read the Heritage Brief.

By combining the Ex-Im extension and Syrian rebels' funding with the CR, they have the excuse of having to vote for it, so as not to shut down the government.

Only six Republicans voted against this rule/procedure of "Logrolling" legislation, none of which were from Ohio.  Therefore, the few legislators from Ohio who then voted against the CR were covered.  They can now say they voted against it, even though they allowed it in the first place.

This latest CR is set to expire during the Lame Duck session, the perfect storm for unaccountability in spending.
