Under current law the Government Accountability Office is hamstrung in doing an actual audit of the Federal Reserve. Congressman Ron Paul of Texas has introduced HR 1207 - The Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009. This bill would allow the Government Accountability Office to audit the Federal Reserve. Below is a video of Ron Paul describing HR 1207 and why it is needed.
This bill is in the interest of all Americans, it's not Republican or Democrat, Conservative or Liberal, it is truly of a bi-partisan concern.
I urge everyone to call their representative and tell them to co-sponsor HR 1207. As of right now there are 28 co-sponsors.
Capitol Switchboard: 1-877-851-6437
After you have called your representative please pass this on to everyone that you know.
How any representative could say "no" to this bill is beyond me. It would be like them saying that they don't want to know what the Federal Reserve is doing and how they are printing and spending money that directly impacts every American.
