It is a good day when CNBC is freaking out.
They are reporting that Sen. Rand Paul is going to block the nomination of Janet Yellen to the Federal Reserve (probably next week), until Sen. Harry Reid allows a vote on Paul’s Audit the Fed bill. The bill overwhelmingly passed the U.S. House last year, but Reid didn’t let it come to a vote in the Senate.
I have a tingly feeling that this will be as great as Paul’s drones filibustero.
Go here to listen to a brief recording from Campaign for Liberty and sign their petition for the audit bill. Sign it again if you already have signed it. Call, email, and bug your U.S. rep and senators to vote to audit the Federal Reserve.
