'Audit the Fed' moves to house floorSubmitted by mrsparex on Fri, 07/06/2012 - 08:39
Last week supporters of Federal Reserve transparency had a major victory when the House Committee on Government Oversight and Reform passed my Audit the Fed bill, HR 459 unanimously with all major audit provisions intact. This clears the way for a House floor vote expected sometime in late July, and with a whopping 263 cosponsors, the chances of it passing have never looked better!
This is an unprecedented opportunity for transparency into how the currency of the United States is handled, and mishandled by the Federal Reserve.
The Federal Reserve is an enormously destructive and unaccountable force in both the U.S. economy and the greater global economy. Federal Reserve policies affect average Americans far more than fiscal, spending, and tax policies legislated by Congress.
