Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S (R - AZ) announced his original co-sponsorship of H.R. 24, the Audit the Fed legislation originally authored and championed by former Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX).
"A real and thorough audit of the Federal Reserve is more urgent than ever. During a time when the Fed continues unprecedented intervention in our economy, they have been opaque and resistant to transparency. Allowing the Fed to operate in almost complete secrecy has allowed Washington to spend taxpayer money recklessly, rack up trillion dollar deficits, and rob hard-working Americans of their wealth and savings."
"We must demand a full audit, so that the American people can find out what the Fed is doing to our dollars and our economy. I will continue to fight on the frontlines of this battle to get Audit the Fed passed through Congress."
Congressman Gosar played an active role in advancing the Audit the Fed legislation to the House floor in the 112th Congress. In addition to being an early co-sponsor of the legislation, he was instrumental in passing the legislation through the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. After passing the House last year, the original Audit the Fed bill was not voted on in the Senate.
