Senate Rejects 'Audit the Fed'

The Senate  has rejected Rand Paul’s proposal to audit the Federal Reserve.

The Senate voted 53-44 in favor of the  measure. Sixty votes were needed to move forward.



  1. Maybe they can pass it if they use language the way the FED does in order to confuse the issue. They could call it something like "a macro review of operations to quantify policy decision impacts." And since nobody would know what the hell that means, they wouldn't be so adamantly against it.

  2. That vote was for cloture on debate, not on the bill itself.
