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.

No Vote on Janet Yellen Until Audit the Fed Gets a Vote

As pretty much everyone expected, President Obama’s nomination for Federal Reserve chairman is a big-government Keynesian. Many left-wing pundits are applauding the nomination of Janet Yellen, the current Vice Chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. She has held many prominent jobs within the Federal Reserve and politics.

Audit the Fed -- Urge Your Senators to Support S. 209

"There is no entity in the world that controls our lives more than the Federal Reserve System" - Harry Reid, 1995. While Harry Reid admits the unchecked power of the Federal Reserve, he has failed to act to provide oversight of the central bank. Despite the concentrated power of the Federal Reserve, it has little accountability from Congress or any branch of government.
