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

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.

AUDIT THE FED VOTE TODAY! CALL CONGRESS NOW!

As my FreedomWorks colleague Julie Borowski reported last week, the House is scheduled to vote on Congressman Ron Paul's "Audit the Fed" bill, H.R. 459, TODAY. Help us put it over the top! We've already placed 1,500 calls to Congress. Help us place at least 500 more calls before the House vote, which we expect to take place around 1:15 PM ET TODAY.

Audit the Fed May (Hopefully!) Be Included in the GOP Platform

The movement to audit the Federal Reserve has come a long way over the past couple of years. According to Business Insider, there is a good chance that audit the Fed will be part of the official party platform in August:

How the Fed is Making a Mess of our Economy

The Fed decided last week to extend Operation Twist, a program that involves buying up short term government bonds in order to purchase long term government debt.  This is not only a waste of time and money, but it also represents yet another attempt on the part of the government to manipulate the free market and pick winners and losers in the process.

Audit the Fed!

+++UPDATE (7/19): House Republicans have just announced that "Audit the Fed" will be voted on in the House of Representatives on July 24, 25, or 26.+++Since its creation in 1913, the Federal Reserve has been responsible for the 95% loss in value of the U.S. dollar. In this economic crisis, the Fed has been responsible for over $14 trillion in bailouts and loans to undisclosed institutions, and it has participated in bailouts of foreign central banks and governments to the tune of $16 trillion.

Wall Street Protesters Should Instead Focus on the Federal Reserve

I’ve been closely following the loosely organized Occupy Wall Street protests on social media sites over the past few weeks. Now, I’m all for citizen activism and freedom of assembly, but I’m still unconvinced that most of these protesters know what exactly they're protesting. They’re angry about the state of the economy and rightfully so. While I sympathize with their frustration towards our weak economy, their anger is largely misdirected. They would be better off to pick up and move their protests down a few blocks to the New York Federal Reserve building.

QE3 Will Further Destroy U.S. Dollar

Speculation has risen that Fed chairman Ben Bernanke may announce yet around round of quantitative easing or QE3 on Friday. As economist Thomas Sowell says, “when people in Washington start creating fancy new phrases, instead of using plain English, you know they are doing something they don't want us to understand.” The term quantitative easing in layman’s terms just means that the Fed will print more money out of thin air. What could possibly go wrong? Well, for starters, the value of the U.S.
