Following an unsuccessful procedural vote in the Senate on Sen. Rand Paul’s Federal Reserve Transparency Act, FreedomWorks Legislative Affairs Manager Josh Withrow commented:
“Senate Democrats constantly rail against Wall Street and financial institutions to score cheap political points. Today, however, they refused to back up their rhetoric by failing to shine light on the activities of the Federal Reserve, which holds so much influence over our economy. The hypocrisy is astounding.”
On Monday, FreedomWorks issued a key vote “yes” on the Federal Reserve Transparency Act. Today’s vote in the Senate will be included on our 2016 Congressional Scorecard. The scorecard is used to determine eligibility for the FreedomFighter Award, which recognizes Members of Congress who consistently vote to support economic freedom and individual liberty.
