Dear Friend in Liberty,
Yesterday, the House rejected Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed by a vote of 198-229. The Audit was included in a Republican motion to send the Dodd-Frank Fed Empowerment Act (H.R. 4173) back to committee.
If the measure had been approved, H.R. 4173 would have been changed to include the thorough Audit.
Even worse, the majority of those who voted against it were cosponsors of H.R. 1207.

Check out our “Hall of Shame” to see if your representative is on the list of those who abandoned their so-called “support” for Audit the Fed (while voting to further empower the secretive Fed) when real action was required.
*[Editor's Note: These are the TX representatives voting 'no' on the Audit the Fed: Ruben Hinojosa – TX-15, Silvestre Reyes – TX-16, Ciro Rodriguez – TX-23, Lloyd Doggett – TX-25, Solomon Ortiz – TX-27, Henry Cuellar – TX-28 and Eddie Bernice Johnson – TX-30]
Be sure to let them know you will make your fellow constituents aware of their failure to support full accountability from those responsible for this latest economic crisis.
If your representative stood with Ron Paul by supporting Audit the Fed, thank him for his support and urge him to fight any future efforts to expand the Fed’s powers.

There’s still time to stop this Fed powergrab in the Senate.
Find your senators here. After you contact your congressman, please call your senators and demand they stand up for the American people by defeating H.R. 4173 and taking a standalone vote on S. 604, Audit the Fed.
We’ve come too far to let the Fed off the hook for its actions. Call Congress today!
Do your part and forward this to everyone you know. WE THE PEOPLE are the new media!
