    Demand Harry Reid Bring Audit the Fed Bill to a Vote in the Senate

    07/25/2012
    Great news: Ron Paul's Audit the Fed bill passed the House!
     
    But this is where the hard work really begins. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has introduced a bill identical to H.R. 459 in the Senate. It's S. 202, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2011. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) vows not to put Audit the Fed to a vote in the Senate. 

     
    Despite the fact that: 
     
    • Audit the Fed (H.R. 459) passed overwhelmingly in the House of Representatives by a bipartisan vote of 327-98. 
    • Roughly 80 percent of Americans support auditing the Federal Reserve. 
    • Harry Reid endorsed auditing the Fed in 1995. Don't believe me? Here's the clip:
       

    Interesting quotes from Harry Reid circa 1995: 
     
    "I think it would be interesting to know about the Federal Reserve. I think we should audit the Federal Reserve. It's taxpayers money that is being used there" - Harry Reid quote from 1995.

     
    "There is no entity in the world that controls our lives more than the Federal Reserve System" - Harry Reid quote from 1995.
