Will Senate stand with Rand and the people or Reid and the Fed?
Tomorrow, Harry Reid will hold a vote on cloture for the nomination of Stanley Fisher as Vice-Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors (Fisher’s nomination for a seat on the board was approved last month, but the Senate must hold a separate conformation vote on his nomination for Vice-Chair). Reid’s motion also invokes cloture on the nomination of Dr. Lael Brainard to the board and the renomination of Jerome (Jay) H. Powell to the Board.
Senator Rand Paul has placed a hold on all Federal Reserve Board nominees until Harry Reid finally agrees to hold a roll-call vote on Audit the Fed (HR 24/S. 209). Campaign for Liberty members who want to Stand with Rand in favor of transparency at the Federal Reserve should call their Senators and ask they vote against cloture on all nominees to the Federal Reserve until Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid schedules a vote on Audit the Fed.
