Why does Mitch McConnell support the Corporate Welfare of the Export-Import Bank?

"The top three beneficiaries of Ex-Im – Boeing, General Electric, and Caterpillar – have donated $282,955 directly to McConnell through his re-election campaign and his leadership PAC since 1992.

Also, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which is leading the fight to continue Ex-Im, spent $812,650 supporting McConnell's 2014 re-election campaign."
