This is encouraging news.

McCarthy’s (R-CA) Informed Taxpayers’ Federal Government Annual Reporting Act of 2010. This is an important step toward increasing transparency and openness in government. In a democracy, it is essential that taxpayers be granted easy access to critical information including federal tax revenue, outlays, deficits, and public debt, which this bill helps provide.

Federal Reserve Transparency Working Group Sends Letter to the Senate

Dear Members of the U.S. Senate: In the last two years, the Federal Reserve Board has lent several trillion dollars to banks and other private companies, financial and non-financial institutions through a series of special lending facilities. The total amount of loans made through facilities exceeds the annual budget of the United States. In addition, it guaranteed trillions of dollars of various assets and also made hundreds of billions of dollars available to several foreign central banks through currency swap arrangements.
