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.
