Audit the Fed

Ron Paul's H.R. 1207 is being heard in the House Committee on Financial Services, thanks to Barney Frank. It's a historical day, regardless of whether the bill will pass. 96 years after the Federal Reserve System came into being, Congress is finally debating whether to audit the institution that wields enormous power over the nation's financial and economic policies. It's about time.

You can watch the hearings on the Committee's website.

(By the way, the member of the Federal Reserve Board, who wrote the op-ed piece for Wall Street Journal to coincide with this occasion, was a member of the Working Group on Financial Markets , aka the Plunge Protection Team.)
