Boehner Tells Hensarling to Develop Ex-Im Bank Plan

Speaker John A. Boehner — publicly, at least — has more questions than answers on the Export-Import Bank. At his weekly news conference Thursday, the Ohio Republican would not commit to putting a Senate-passed bill up for a vote if the House Financial Services Committee does not advance a bill of their own, but did say there are thousands of jobs on the line that would "disappear pretty quickly" if the Ex-Im Bank were to expire.
