Passing or failing is not going to save or break this country.
I want to see it come to open debate. I want the Fed laundry aired.
It would be a wake up to many.
I want to see the media talking about it and the secrecy exposed.
The economy is on artificial life support, Lets pull the plug.

Ron Paul never said that an audit of the Federal Reserve would be inflationary. In fact, he has credibly demonstrated the exact opposite: that the secretive Federal Reserve itself is responsible for inflation, with the dollar having lost 96% of its value since the Fedís creation in 1913.

By standard interpretations of inflation, inflation isn't wholly JUST an increase in the money supply as by Milton Friedman's interpretation. The Fed opening up its books would expose the inflation we already have, thus being "inflationary" by showing us its actually there.

And Ron Paul does realize that. You cant tell me he hasn't talked to Frank about HR 1207. If you look at that article from Kane awhile back, you can see Frank has been talking to Paul about it.

Also, we don't know if the Federal Reserve regulatory bill and HR 1207 will be combined or if they will remain separate and passed around the same time. But I bet the former gets passed with promises from Frank to pass HR 1207.

Ron Paul admitted himself even if it was brought out of committee, it would be attached to another bill. Barney Frank basically said the same thing.

this TYPO and confusion at the WASHINGTON TIMES escallated up expectations and then dashed them.
does someone REALLY want the volatile debate in the HOUSE to spill over into the SENATE as ObamaCare is
to be in the SENATE at about the same time HOUSE 1207 would be if the story about BARNEY FRANK were true?

Well, if Frank would take the marbles out of his mouth, people would have been able to hear what he had actually said.

Barney Frank mubbles less than MARLON BRANDO often once did, and most reporters KNEW better than to misquote...THE STAR!!!

admittedly something that seems a softening of position as a story would have proverbial "legs"

I agree; Bawney should quit putting balls in his mouth.

when he said "this will probably pass in October" it was in response to what the town haller asked, did that last question include "1207"?
