Take Action this August to Audit the Fed!

While your senators are back home this August recess, make sure to pay them a visit and urge them to cosponsor Senator Paul's bill to Audit the Fed, S. 202.

Members of Congress are generally most accessible to their constituents during this time as they hold townhalls and give speeches.

Last Congress, 32 Senators cosponsored S. 604.  Currently, S. 202 is sitting at 7 cosponsors. 

Now, thanks to our members efforts last Congress, we were able to put the Senate on record for Audit the Fed with a vote on the Vitter Amendment to the Dodd/Frank bill.  The vote failed to pass 37-62, but between that roll call vote and the cosponsor list from the 111th Congress, we have a natural starting point for gaining more support in the Senate.

Below is a list of members who were either cosponsors of S. 604 or voted for the Vitter Amendment in the 111th Congress, along with an explanation of what each one did.
