Audit the Fed, Rep. Bishop Fails to Vote

Earlier this week the House rejected auditing the Federal Reserve Bank 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.

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.

Our Congressman, Rob Bishop, did not cast his vote.

If you’re so inclined, there’s still time to stop this Fed power grab.Contact Rep. Bishop and let him know that you are disappointed that he did not vote in this matter. Voting, after all, is what we pay our employees in Congress to do.

After you have called Rep. Bishop’s office, please call our 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.

    Just a heads up, Rob missed the vote because they closed the vote earlier than expected. In the congressional record Rob went on record saying that he didn’t get there in time, but would have voted yes. He is an ardent supporter of the Audit the Fed bill and with over 300 cosponsors, it’s weird that this bill wouldn’t pass on a motion to recommit. Rob was on his way to the vote and it closed early and I know he feels bad about it because it’s a bill that he wants passed.

    • Adam, (who works for Rob Bishop) this is political spin. If Rob was so adamant about the audit of the Fed, why did he JUST BARELY sign on as a co-sponsor, AFTER I entered the race.
