The House of Representatives approved Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul’s “Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2012″ by a wide margin in a 327-98 vote Wednesday. But lost in the bipartisan revelry was the fact that eight co-sponsors of the legislation actually voted against it.

Insulate the Fed from politics by politicizing it?

How's that for irony?

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

There are also 14

Congressmen who cosponsored HR 1207 in the last Congress, which is the same bill as HR 459, and voted against HR 459.

I would like to know

why charges for treason cannot be brought against such people?
They swore to uphold the constitution.
The constitution is the law of the land.
They have openly, knowingly broken the law and have no remorse to do what is lawful.

They therefore are criminals!

Can anyone tell me why We The People cannot get some serious charges filed against these despots?
Anyone?

If every great fortune has a great crime behind it, then the greatest fortunes have the greatest criminals behind them. End the fed!

yellow belly traitors

... should be tried in front of a jury of their peers, then if found guilty of treason pelted with rotten vegetables then hung by their necks until they cease breathing. Restore America Now by holding criminals accountable. Democrats have some very serious accountability issues . . . 99 Nay votes and now these 8 turncoats? Treason is a serious offense. Working to undermine the Republic is treason. Breaking your oath of office is treason. Voting to maintain secrecy of the Federal Reserve so they can continue to fleece the American public is treason.

Woolsey is retiring this

Woolsey is retiring this year. Note that she only sponsored it to make it look like she is in support of it again, but in reality she isn't bound to political pressure any more since she is not running for re-election and therefore had nothing to loose...basically she voted based on her democrat credentials and for party loyalty.

If it werent for politicians, like the ones above~ I would have never known what it was like to loathe another human being

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

^^^

Same here.

If you live in one of the above states...

it is your responsibility to vote these folks out of office.

Can someone please explain this to me

Do "awake" people who support Dr. Paul really see some sort of difference between the parties? If this is the case I suggest you redouble your efforts to wake up the rest of the way. It's not the parties. it's not the politicians. it's the system itself.

You all know about the fed. You're all aware of that. How many of you know who started the fed? How many of you know how many other central banks they own in other nations? How many of you know what has happened to every single president who has tried to return the power of printing money to the government?

the whole game... THE WHOLE GAME... is about keeping the bankers in power. They own both wings of the Single-party system. You're not going to get anywhere while trying to work within their system. If you want change, you're going to have to FIGHT FOR IT!

At their inceptions, the #Liberty, #OccupyWallStreet and #TeaParty movements all had the same basic goal... What happened?

There's a huge difference between the parties thanks to Ron Paul

As the bankers empowered corproations and corproations went global, a third rail was formed called Area Councils, composed of global corporations and both political parties leaders on national and state levels. They are brilliant, charismatic, rich, powerful and lethal to dissent, rewarding those who do what they tell them.

They formed a third party that had two faces, Neocons, who joined the GOP and worked to undermine every conservative, and Neoliberals who joined the Democratic party and work to undermine liberals (just look at what Hillary's committees are doing to Obama for example). They have been in control for decades. When I joined with Ralph Nader in 96, Nader said there was no difference between the parties, called them, coke and pepsi, and I have agreed with this until Ron Paul made a bid for president.

Since 07, people have been joining the GOP as Ron Paul Republicans. This year, hundreds became credentialed delegates, and were elected and appointed to seats on GOP cnetral committees, and so THIS, is what is making the difference between the two parties.

Ron Paul Republicans are restoring the constitution and working to help the GOP find it's way back to conservative stands while materializing Ron Paul's message.

So while what you say was true, it no longer is. Ron Paul Republicans are now seated and voting NO to a NWO, NO to a police state, NO to taxes, NO to bankers and bailouts, and holding the Neocons accountable.

MSM censors us, but we exist, so while it may appear there is no difference between parties, there is and we are it.

Is there a full list of who

Is there a full list of who voted for/against this bill anywhere that someone can link me to?

They co-sponser the bill to stop the calls to their office...

...and then they vote against it.

That's what many in the senate did the last time "Audit the FED" was voted on.
