    U.S. senator says narrows his Fed audit amendment | Reuters

    Basically Sanders is giving Dodd, Obama, and Bernanke exactly what they want. Pass something they can say will increase transparency, but really won't tell us anything.

    Well I'm certainly surprised. I mean if we take the word of some posters on this board the Federal Reserve is a bastion of capitalism and free market economics, you'd think a self-professed socialist like Bernie Sanders would want to find out what they're doing.

    :rolleyes:

    This assumes this whole bill was even a legit endeavor to BEGIN with.

    I say his bluff was called, so he's folding.

    Politics is the art of compromise, and if you were around in the 1700s, and you had power, we'd never have become the United States of America. For all your protest about loving and admiring the Constitution and the Founding Fathers, your actions speak of contempt for the very things they accomplished and how.
