Has everyone received the email about Senators Corker and Merkley attempting to sabotage Ron Paul's Audit the Fed drive? They've introduced something called the "Federal Reserve Accountability Act". This misnamed legislation would only require a minimum audit, while offering major protection and secrecy to the Federal Reserve and the companies receiving billion dollar bailouts.

Here's a sample text if you care to send your senators a fax. You can send the fax for FREE - FREE! - at www.faxzero.com. The letter is here. Feel free to make any and all modifications to the text. All you have to do is look up your senate contact info here: http://www.campaignforliberty.com/congress.php then cut and paste your senator's fax number and your letter.

It's free, it's quick, it's doable in about five minutes.

If we're not careful, all our hard work over the spring and summer is going to be short circuited by a few Fed-smooching politicians.

Modify this letter however you like, but let your senators know that the Merkley and Corker Fed Act is completely unacceptable!!!

Senator XXXX;

On Tuesday, Senators Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and Bob Corker (R-TN) introduced "The Federal Reserve Accountability Act," an attempt to derail HR 1207/S 604 by passing a bill that prevents a full audit and full transparency from America's secretive central bank.

Merkley and Corker's irresponsible legislation would not allow an audit to review the Fed's inflation of the money supply or its agreements with foreign central banks, among other shortcomings. In addition, the names of the institutions who received the funds would not be available until one year after each "emergency" program ended, which is nowhere in sight.


Seventy-five percent of the American people, over two thirds of the House of Representatives, and over a quarter of the Senate support Ron Paul's Audit the Fed legislation. With those historic levels of support, there is no excuse for settling for anything less than a full Audit the Fed bill.

Please push for full transparency. Please do all you can to move S 604 forward to law. You owe it to the American people to push for a full and complete audit of the Fed. PLEASE DO NOT SUPPORT Senators Merkley and Corker and their horribly misnamed “Federal Reserve Accountability Act.”

Thank you for your attention to this important issue.
