BUSTED - Hypocrite Harry Reid Lobbies On The Senate Floor: "I Think We Should Audit The Federal Reserve"
This clip is from C-Span as broadcast on January 23, 1995. Various reports say that Ron Paul's 'Audit the Fed' bill is dead on arrival at the Senate where Majority Leader Harry Reid has said that he will not consider the legislation, virtually guaranteeing that it will never become law. But Reid hasn't always been opposed to a Fed audit. In fact, he introduced legislation to audit the Federal Reserve, and co-sponsored several bills to increase transparency at the Fed in the 1990s, according to Govtrack.
"I have sponsored legislation every year that would call for an audit of the Federal Reserve system. I offer that amendment every year, every year it gets nowhere. I think it would be interesting to know about the Federal Reserve. I think we should audit the Federal Reserve — it's taxpayer's money that's being used there. But we don't do that."
"People just don't care about the Federal Reserve. Maybe it's because it's a subject that's not very interesting — it's not pornography, it's not murder, it's not an issue that deals with the Wild West."

Gee, wouldn't it suck if Harry Reid's office were overwhelmed by callers demanding that he allow a vote on Ron Paul's bill. Thanks in advance to anyone who calls. And make sure to let them know you've seen the video of Reid calling for a Fed Audit.
Ask them why he changed his mind.
