    But what is it they are fearful of? the fed is above government jurisdiction. That is what Allen Greenspan said. So how can dems or republican's be blamed in that case?

    So much for democracy.
    Just like the tax bili that just passed the Senate. Can you believe that the House won't even vote on a bill that will keep taxes down on 95% of Americans. Who are they working for?

    We've always known they were never for real govt oversight, and protecting interests of the ordinary citizen. All those lies about how govt regulation would have stopped this crisis, and here's their chance. Big House Dems (e.g., Barney Frank) are against it too.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Greenspan can take a lot of blame for leaving interest rates low for too long.

    True, but he also state's that the FED is above government jurisdication. So i think he and the fed have more to be blamed for.

    Hey - both parties are pathetic, imo.

    As are 90+% of politicians.

    It is not in the interest of our corporate masters to shine a light on this institution.

    Re: House easily approves Paul's 'audit the Fed' bill in 327-98 vote

    I've always wondered...

    By what constitutional authority can the Senate majority leader keep bills from being voted on? That seems damned unAmerican to me.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    It is amazing that so many people actually want the Fed to be allowed to work in as much secrecy as possible...despite the fact that this is an institution that can create trillions of dollars out of thin air and give it to virtually anyone they wish...in almost any country they want.
