The Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology Subcommittee, chaired by Rep. Ron Paul, will hold a hearing on Tuesday to examine the Federal Reserve’s assistance to the Eurozone and the impact that assistance has on the U.S. monetary system and the dollar.

New York Federal Reserve Chairman and CEO William Dudley and Steven B. Kamin, the Federal Reserve’s director of international finance, will appear before the Subcommittee to describe all the assistance provided by the Federal Reserve to mitigate the financial crisis in Europe as well as the outcome of this assistance on the financial markets and the domestic monetary system.

“The Federal Reserve has been creating money out of thin air for 40 years now,” Chairman Paul stated, “and they’ve ramped up the printing presses during these five years of crisis—all in the name of economic stability. But there are consequences to massive amounts of money creation, consequences when central banks print money, consequences when they loan it, and consequences when banks get this money and create even more money and credit through fractional reserve banking. Indeed, these Fed actions helped cause the very crisis we’re suffering from today.”

Congressman Paul continued, “It is important for Congress to acknowledge this and to hold the Fed accountable for its actions, since they affect the value of the dollars in our wallets. This isn’t just about the Fed trying to bailout Europe; there is a fundamental question here, about what fiat money does to the economy. I am pleased that President Dudley, a permanent voting member on the FOMC, will be appearing before the Subcommittee so we can ask some important questions about the Fed’s involvement in Europe and what that means for the dollar and our fiat monetary regime.”

The hearing, entitled “Federal Reserve Aid to the Eurozone: Its Impact on the U.S. and the Dollar,” will be held on Tuesday, March 27, at 10:00 a.m. in Room 2128 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

We're staying the course...

to lawlessness.

"Which violates the Federal Reserve Act"

Yeah, but it's like a double negative right? This violates the Federal Reserve Act, and the Federal Reserve Act violates the Constitution, so this must be OK! /sarc

While they write more and more oppressive laws that apply to us, they continue to demonstrate that none of the laws apply to them. There is likely some tipping point where all pretense of law is simply dropped and they explicitly proclaim themselves rulers over us.
