I just received this note from my congressional representative, in response to some of my incessant pestering. I want to share part of it with you all. I know that many feel that we as individuals have little influence. But I think that we can make a difference! H.R. 459 is a bill that will enable Congress to conduct a meaningful audit of the Federal Reserve, something that they currently are not able to do under the law:
We haven't got a loud voice, but we do have a voice!
"...I'm pleased to share that, due in part to your advocacy, I am a co-sponsor of H.R. 459. The Fed has a tremendous impact on our economy and its actions may need to be scrutinized and open to more transparency. The Federal Reserve Transparency Act has been referred to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee."
