Jim DeMint Joins Ron Paul’s Crusade
Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) is now the leading advocate of Fed Transparency in the Senate. The movemement to Audit the Fed has been gaining quite a lot of traction. HR 1207, Cogressman Ron Paul’s bill to audit the Federal Reserve, had the support of over 300 Representatives (including every single Republican in the House of Representatives), as well as over 30 Senators, before Congressman Mel Watt nearly practically gutted it in committee.
Today the House Financial Services Committee has reconvened to consider several amendments to the bill, one of which will be proposed by Congressman Paul in an attempt to preserve the original intent of his legislation.
In the meantime, Sen. DeMint and Congressman Paul penned an Op-Ed for the Wall Street Journal.
