    Federal Reserve Policy Audit Legislation ‘Gutted,’ Paul Says - Bloomberg.com

    Utterly ridiculous. Congressman Mel Watt should be ashamed of himself, and it should be obvious that he is in the pocket of the bankers that run the Fed.

    If your Congressman is a co-sponsor of H.R. 1207 I urge you to contact them to let them know that you want them to fight to return the original language of the bill that Mel Watt removed. Congressman Paul intends to introduce an amendment to the bill if it hits the floor returning the original language, but it would likely help to tell our Congressman to support this effort when it comes up.

    If you're not sure if your Congressman has co-sponsored H.R. 1207 then look here:

    Well this is the House version that I'm referring to. The Senate version hasn't been tampered with as far as I know, though it's likely to lose its teeth here shortly I'm sure.

    Yes the house one, I looked at the cosponsor list. One of my reps is supporting it, the other one I couldn't find on there.

    Each district has one Representative in the U.S. House. This is why I'm confused.
