Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) have reintroduced former Texas Representative Ron Paul’s “Federal Reserve Transparency Act” word for word.
Referring the Act, Rep. Broun said:
“[M]y plan is to pick up right where Congressman Paul left off. Our economy is far from recovering, and the recent fears regarding the potential impacts of the ‘fiscal cliff’ and its aftermath prove that the American people must continue to demand transparency from the entity charged with ensuring stable economic and monetary policy. While measures requiring partial audits of the Fed have become law in recent years, it’s clear that current policy does not go far enough. I am honored to carry on one of Rep. Paul’s legacies, as well as his efforts to advocate for a full audit of the Fed, which remains as active – and as closely-guarded – as ever.”
On February 5th, Sen. Rand Paul – the son of Ron Paul and the 112th Congress’ Senate sponsor of the “Audit the Fed” bill – introduced the H.R. 24 companion bill in his chamber: S. 209.
"The Fed's operations under a cloak of secrecy have gone on too long and the American people have a right to know what the Federal Reserve is doing with our nation's money supply," Sen. Paul said. "Audit the Fed has significant bipartisan support in Congress and across the country and the time to act on this is now."
Before the Fed turns one-hundred this December, let’s make sure it gets audited! 2013 can be the year that the House and the Senate pass legislation to Audit the Federal Reserve Bank!
Take Action and Blast Faxes to Congress! Demand that they AUDIT THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK by co-sponsoring S. 209 and H.R. 24!
