Clinton calls Export-Import Bank revival 'no-brainer'

"I was also relieved yesterday to see that the House finally voted to reauthorize the Export-Import bank, now the Senate needs to do exactly the same," Clinton said "For the life of me I don't understand the argument [against the bank], I've traveled to 112 other countries, I know what the countries do to support their businesses ... and the Export-Import bank's sole purpose is to promote U.S. interests abroad."

The former secretary of state went on to speak of the thousands of New Hampshire businesses that have been exporting their products overseas, bolstering the state's economy by $29 million.
