Elizabeth Warren voted against funding the Export-Import Bank a few weeks ago. But is that because she wants to live up to her reputation as a crusader against crony capitalism or "socialism for the rich" as she calls it? Not really, I note in USA Today.

Warren voted against the funding because it was attached to a bill to fund Syrian rebels. Otherwise, she's a big fan of the bank, which, she insists, "helps create American jobs and spur economic growth."

But both those claims are laughable, notes Reason Foundation Senior Analyst Shikha Dalmia. So why is Warren, the female Robin Hood, so readily abandoning her pet cause?
