Boeing: Porkless In Seattle


Readers Report

BOEING: PORKLESS IN SEATTLE

Howard Gleckman's commentary "GOP magic: Trimmed budget, brimming trough" (Government, Sept. 4) leaves the impression that large U.S. corporations, such as Boeing Co., receive substantial "corporate subsidies"--often at the expense of small and midsize firms--from the Export-Import Bank. We disagree.

Boeing does not receive any U.S. government funding from the Ex-Im Bank--and never has. Ex-Im Bank loan guarantees to foreign airlines enable them to purchase U.S. aircraft, thus supporting hundreds of thousands of U.S. aerospace jobs at Boeing and its suppliers, large and small, nationwide.
