Janet Yellen: I'll Make Sure Audit the Fed Never Happens

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) didn’t waste any time in introducing a bill to Audit the Fed. Yesterday, the first day of the 114th Congress, Massie introduced H.R. 24, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2015 with 64 bipartisan original cosponsors. The legislation is identical to the Audit the Fed bill that overwhelmingly passed the House of Representatives last year (333-92)—but ultimately Harry Reid refused to bring it to the Senate floor.

Audit the Fed has been reintroduced with more than 60 cosponsors

Hours after the new members of the 114th Congress were sworn in on Tuesday, Rep. Thomas Massie reintroduced the Federal Reserve Transparency Act (H.R. 24), which, if passed, would require the United States' central bank to open certain information to the Government Accountability Office, currently excluded from audits.

Will We Finally Get a Vote on Audit in the Fed in the Senate?

Last week, Republicans won control over the Senate in the mid-term elections. I’m personally glad that Harry Reid is no longer Senate Majority Leader but I’m still skeptical on whether Republican leadership will be serious about cutting spending. I hope that they prove me wrong.

The Fed is Not our Only Option

For those who follow the arcane world of monetary policy, the U.S. Federal Reserve remains a shadowy institution with immense power, yet shockingly little oversight. Despite its 100 year history, the Fed has never been fully audited, and although a bill to do that very thing is languishing in the Senate right now, Harry Reid shows little inclination to bring it to a vote.

The DOJ Goes after Big Banks - but why not the Fed?

I don’t often quote scripture in service of a point, but when I heard that the Justice Department is pursuing legal action against many of the world’s largest banks, charging them with illegal currency manipulation, I couldn’t help but think about this line from Matthew.:

Press Release

FreedomWorks Calls on Harry Reid to Bring up Audit the Fed Bill

FreedomWorks calls on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to bring up the bill to audit the Federal Reserve. The House of Representatives passed The Federal Reserve Transparency Act (H.R. 24) with a vote of 333-92. The same bill to Audit the Fed passed in 2012 but was never brought up in the Senate. Now, FreedomWorks is calling on the Senate to bring the bill up for a vote, especially considering Senator Reid’s strong support for an audit of the Federal Reserve in the past.

Key Vote YES on Auditing the Federal Reserve

As one of our over 6.6 million FreedomWorks activists nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote YES on the Federal Reserve Transparency Act. Introduced by Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA), the bill would eliminate the current audit restrictions placed on the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and require a full and thorough audit of the Federal Reserve.

Senator Rand Paul Threatens to Delay Fed Confirmations Until Audit the Fed Gets a Vote

A no-brainer issue that should unite practically everyone is auditing the Federal Reserve. Some may find it hard to believe that the central bank of the United States has never been fully audited. The public and even Congress is left in the dark about what goes on behind closed doors at the Fed. This severe lack of transparency is troubling since the central bank has so much power over the economy and our lives.
