Hmmmm. Specifically, how does Sander's amendment differ from the original language derived from the House bill? The US Senate should have passed the original bill a long time ago. The delay seems to be related to attempts to weaken the language of the original bill.

I don't think it did when it was first introduced....Paul has applauded Sanders and DeMint for introducing it.

Finally... someone actually says it:

Federal Reserve creates the money.
Loans it to the banks at .25%.
Banks use that money to buy treasuries which yield 3.5+%.
Banks get 3% interest for funneling money from the Federal Reserve to the Treasury...

Well, Sanders just mentioned that the C4L is onboard with his amendment ...

I'm beginning to wonder about this amendment if Dodd supports it... We'll see.

So the amendment will only allow for the auditing of the transactions the FED made post 2007. It will in no way audit monetary policy. What a joke.

Coburn's right... S.3217 is a dangerous bill.

"We need an independent federal reserve, but we don't need a secret federal reserve."

According to the Huffington Post the authority to look at foreign deals was stripped from the amendment. DeMint isn't saying anything about that.

I'm tired of hearing McCain. The sound of his voice just annoys me.

This is from Ron Paul's FB page:

Bernie Sanders has sold out and sided with Chris Dodd to gut Audit the Fed in the Senate. His "compromise" is what the Adminstration and banking interests want: they'll allow the TARP and TALF to be audited, but no transparency of the FOMC, discount window operations or agreement with foreign central banks. We need to take action and stop this!
