AUDIT THE FED!

Reader Submitted Post by Sue Long

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform just passed Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed bill (H.R. 24), introduced in this Congress by Representative Paul Broun, and sent it to the House floor. Now there is no reason for House Leadership to not schedule a vote on the bill next week.

Securing a House vote before the August recess hopefully would put enough pressure on the Senate through the August recess to make Harry Reid cave and give us a vote on Audit the Fed! Senators are already feeling the pushback from their constituents over the ObamaCare disaster and other issues, so the last thing they’ll want is more heat this fall for blocking an initiative supported by nearly 75% of the American people that has passed the U.S. House twice. But it must first get passed by the House next week.

You can easily send a message of your own — or one already written – to your representative and senators.

    This bill is stupid. This bill is NOT about “auditing the Fed.” If it was, it would be a bill to direct the GAO or CBO to do just that. Instead, this bill places statutory requirements on nominal interest rate settings that destroys the independent monetary policy that is integral to investor confidence in any open-market capitalist society. Placing monetary policy at the whim of political fluctuations is dangerous and would signal weakness to all corners of the financial and banking sectors in the economy.

      Wait, I thought the author was referring to the Federal Reserve Accountability and Transparency Act conjured by House Republicans in July. It appears the intent of this post is something different.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
