Congressional Black Caucus overwhelmingly votes NO on HR 459 - makes up nearly half of the Total NO votes

The Congressional Black Caucus has 44 members, only 5 of them voted for HR 459.

This tells me that their phones were not ringing in their districts in support of this bill or they just love the Fed.

Please call and thank the following CBC members that voted Yes in support of HR 459

Allen West (R) FL

Ms. Richardson (D) CA

David Scott (D) GA

Robert Scott (D) VA

Al Green (D) TX

What do you expect from a bunch of racists

Congressional Black Caucus. What a joke. Did you really expect them to support a bill sponsored by whitey? Why is this racist organization allowed to operate within our government anyway? No special interest group should be allowed to work within our government.

hmm how to change their mind in 30 seconds.

When the FED endlessy prints money, it causes inflation, making prices rise. As the price of groceries go up, so do stock prices. Who benefits here?

Or.. Why should a bank get billions of dollars loaned at zero interest and then loan that money to you at 20% in the form of a credit card?

Looks like..

we haven't done a good enough job of educating the Black segment of American culture.

It will come...

It's inevitable.

They just don't understand the issue

The CBC is made up of mostly good people (anti-War, etc.), but in this case I think there is a big lack of education and understanding on this issue.

The Federal Reserve and their real defenders have successfully equated transparency with "interference".

It has to be more clearly shown and repeated that the Central Bank Monopoly serves the interests of the rich and the few, and not the poor, and not the masses.

Then the CBC will come around.

Perhaps they should change

Perhaps they should change the name of the Caucus to the Congressional Bankster Caucus.

They simply looked at how

They simply looked at how many Republicans co-sponsored and assumed they should vote 'No'. They probably have no idea what the Fed is.


I'm sad to say that this is what I think happened.

This is odd

Why are they not committed to ending slavery?

because ending poverty has a

because ending poverty has a higher priority

reedr3v's picture

But the Fed's constant currency devaluation

hurts the poor most of all, so that cannot be the reason.

U.S. poverty heads toward highest level in 50 years

The ranks of America's poor are on track to climb to levels unseen in nearly half a century, erasing gains from the war on poverty in the 1960s...


Could not have said this

Could not have said this better myself! Which is why we have to wake up more blacks to the message of freedom.

Because they're Democrats?

Democrats support the Welfare-Industrial-Complex (chief profiteer being JPMorgue) and the Public-Sector-Industrial-Complex. The CBC is left wing Democratic. It's not a black thing, it's a Marxist thing.

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

one more time

for good measure
