TAMPA, Florida — Ron Paul may not be taking the stage here next week, but his impact will certainly be felt in the Republican Party's platform.
Paul's calls for an audit of the Federal Reserve have made the GOP's draft platform which will be voted on by the full Republican Convention next week, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell told reporters.
‘There is," McDonnell, the platform committee chair, said Monday when asked if the audit-the-Fed language made the platform. "It calls for an audit of the Federal Reserve on an annual basis, but it is very specific that it has to be done in a way with appropriate flexibility that it does not impair the independence of the Federal Reserve.”
"Many of us believe that more sunshine more accountability of the federal government, and state government for that matter, is a good idea," McDonnell continued.
