Bosse $28 Billion Ahead of Rivals

“50 Days, 50 Ways” Targets Export-Import Bank

(Salem) While his rival candidates refuse to say where they would cut the federal budget, Republican Grant Bosse continues to groundbreaking assault on wasteful federal spending. Bosse today unveiled the 47th federal program he would cut, the Export-Import Bank. With just four days until the September 9th Republican Primary, Bosse has proposed nearly $28 billion in annual savings to taxpayers. Bosse’s opponents have combined to offer $0 in taxpayer savings.

“Last night, four Republican candidates said how important it was to cut federal spending, but only one dared say how,” Bosse said. “How can taxpayers trust a candidate who says we need to cut the budget if they can’t offer a single program they would eliminate?”

Bosse would cut the $100 million annual subsidy to the Export-Import Bank, which provides financing for American firms looking to ship their products overseas. Similar financing is available through private banks, without putting taxpayers on the hook for private businesses.

“We have to stop providing taxpayer subsidies to businesses with connections in Congress,” Bosse added. “If we can’t stand up against corporate welfare, we’ll never be able to get control of federal spending. I’m willing to take that stand. My opponents aren’t.”

Bosse proposed his latest cut following his address to the Salem Rotary Club. To date, Bosse has proposed more than $27.8 billion in taxpayer savings by eliminating unnecessary federal programs. To learn more about Bosse’s aggressive grassroots campaign, go to
