    The U.S. House overwhelmingly approved a bill by Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, that would expand congressional authority to oversee deliberations at the Federal Reserve.
    The vote was 327-98.

    ...with Dingy Harry Reid and The Senate. Like all other Bills that come from the House led by Republicans.

    Is it a fait a complis by Reid's actions of late and a myriad of legislation Reid has let languish and die an easy call to make?

    Congratulations Congressman Paul. About time this passed...and far too long coming...

    Ron Paul‘s ’Audit the Fed’ Bill Easily Passes the House 327-98

    Further down in the article, and true to form????

    The bill stands no chance of becoming law because the Democratic-controlled Senate will not take it up.





    of course

    I expect no less from Dingy Harry Reid and the Democrats.

    By the way only 1 Republican from NY voted against it in the House...

    : Rep. Bob Turner (R-NY)

    Also from my linked article
    ;)
    The vote served as a symbolic swan song for Paul, who is not seeking re-election.

    The Fed should be free and clear from politics. I'd have to look at the finer points of the bill, but I'm worried this would lead to politicizing the Fed.
