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

    'Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) won a rare legislative victory on Wednesday when the House passed his legislation allowing for a full audit of the Federal Reserve, including an audit of the Fed's monetary policy decisions.

    The House approved Paul's Federal Reserve Transparency Act, H.R. 459, in a bipartisan 327-98 vote. The vote split Democrats almost evenly 89 for and 97 against while only one Republican, Rep. Robert Turner (R-N.Y.), voted against it.

    The bill won an easy majority, given its 270 co-sponsors, and easily cleared the two-thirds majority needed for passage, which was required because it was considered under a suspension of the rules.'

    This should prove interesting.

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

    Because it will never be allowed to go to a vote.

    That's right.

    That gutless Senator Reid won't allow it to be put to a vote....coward.

    So much for democracy.

    That sounds like an opinion. Opinions are like buttholes, everybody's got one.

    Probably because the Democrat leaders do not want it to pass - and they know that if they allow the bill (and since they control the Senate and because of the type of bill this is, they can stop this Bill from seeing the light of day) to be voted on, it might just pass.
