Rand Paul Holds Fed Nominees, Requests Vote on Audit the Fed!
In a letter addressed to Senate
Dictator Majority Leader Harry Reid, acquired by Campaign for Liberty, Senator Rand Paul notified Reid that he objects to any vote on four Fed nominees without also holding a vote on S. 209, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act.
The letter notes, as we have repeatedly on this blog, that Senator Reid was once himself an outspoken proponent of Fed transparency and closes by noting that Paul hopes to work together with Reid in securing a vote on the legislation.
This comes on the heels of H.R. 24, introduced by Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA-10), surpassing 218 cosponsors for the third Congress in a row. A huge milestone for any piece of legislation.
C4L members can help ensure that Audit the Fed gets a vote by calling Majority Leader Eric Cantor at (202) 225-4000 and Speaker Boehner at (202) 225-0600 and urging them both to schedule H.R. 24 for a vote. Then, take a moment to call Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s office at 202-224-3542 and demand that he stop blocking a vote on Audit the Fed and allow the Fed to be fully open to the American people!
