Ron Paul Introduces the Freedom to Bank Act (HR 1095)

You gotta love the representative Ron Paul. Who else but the Texas Libertarian-turned-Republican-turned-Tea Party favorite would introduce legislation with an admonishment to Congress to stop treating the American public like babies?

H.R. 1095 may be called the Freedom to Bank Act. But its official title as introduced, is this: “To sunset federal laws and regulations which treat the American people like children by denying them the opportunity to make their own decision regarding control of their bank accounts and what type of information they wish to receive from their banks, and for other purposes.”

You go, Rep. Paul.

Why should taxpaying, hard-working Americans be charged penalty fees for withdrawing their own money? The banks can’t be that cash-strapped; they’ve received billions in government bailouts, after all.

Ron Paul...

is one of the only people in all of government that by the passage of 1 or many of his bills would be a guarantee of more freedom and more liberty with each passage.

Good article. Thanks bobbyw!

I especially like the part that talks about H.R. 1094 (the Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act) and H.R. 1098 (the Free Competition in Currency Act):

"At the same time Paul introduced this bill, he also brought forth two others – H.R. 1094, the Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act, and H.R. 1098, the Free Competition in Currency Act. The first, he said in remarks to his House colleagues, would go far toward easing the tax burden and unfair assessment policy on working-class Americans."

TWO of Ron Paul's signature bills. . . which don't sound as comical or outlandish as they used to in those dark ages. . .


Yes, thanks for posting.
Three awesome bills! A triple crown of freedom!
Passage of any one of which will help us leave the dark ages of the current central planning soviet banking and money system.
