Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I strongly suspect that what has would up Boehner and other advocates for exporting gas is 'donations' from energy interests who are primarily interested in getting subsidies for the creation of export terminals so as to be able to raise the price of their gas sold into the US market. Build a terminal, lock in contracts to sell to foreign buyers, then, when supply tightens, even more money can be made domestically.
