WATCH: Rep. Schweikert Rails About Not Being Able To Amend ExIm Bank Reauthorization

Arizona Rep. David Schweikert (R-CD6) tonight railed against those trying to reauthorize the Export Import Bank (in the House) without accepting amendments.  The House is debating the procedure for considering the controversial bill, and it would prevent Representatives such as Schweikert from proposing an amendment that would "get the taxpayers off the hook".

"You know that there is a better way to do this than extending this type of crony capitalism and leaving our taxpayers on the hook."

Within the past hour, the House delayed voting on the proposed House Rule 450 (and the reauthorization itself).
