A crucial vote is coming in July in which we learn once and for all whether Congress works for the banksters and Wall Street or if there is hope of reclaiming a government that works for the people. That vote is on HR 459, a bill that provides for a thorough audit of the Federal Reserve.
The bill has more than 225 co-sponsors in the House — Republican and Democrat alike. A similar Senate bill has only about 20 co-sponsors. The Republican House leadership has promised a July floor vote on the bill.
A partial audit last year that was required as part of the Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation revealed that the Federal Reserve had secretly sent more than $16 trillion to bail out banks around the world. The results of that audit created a firestorm of bad publicity for the secretive bankster cabal and a growing movement to end the Fed.
Auditing and ultimately ending the Federal Reserve’s inflationary control over the U.S. economy has been a long-term goal of Ron Paul. Many people say Paul can’t win. If this vote succeeds in July, Paul will have won, and so will have the American people.
