Broun Reintroduces ‘Audit the Fed’ Bill, Says He’ll Pick Up Where Ron Paul Left Off

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10) Thursday reintroduced H.R. 24, the “Audit the Fed” legislation originally authored and championed by former Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX). The bill would require a full audit by the U.S. Comptroller General of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and the Federal Reserve banks.  Broun is currently circulating the bill amongst other Members of the House of Representatives for support. 

Congressman Broun said, “I first want to thank Congressman Ron Paul for his tireless and unwavering dedication to auditing the Federal Reserve.  His efforts paid off when the House passed his legislation with overwhelming bipartisan support during the 112th Congress.  This accomplishment in itself marked the most significant stride made toward bringing real transparency to the nation’s monetary policy.  Unfortunately, as has become the status quo, the do-nothing Senate failed to act on the bill before the end of the 112th Congress, causing it to flat line.”

Congressman Broun continued, “Moving forward, my plan is to pick up right where Congressman Paul left off.  Our economy is far from recovering, and the recent fears regarding the potential impacts of the ‘fiscal cliff’ and its aftermath prove that the American people must continue to demand transparency from the entity charged with ensuring stable economic and monetary policy. While measures requiring partial audits of the Fed have become law in recent years, it’s clear that current policy does not go far enough.  I am honored to carry on one of Rep. Paul’s legacies, as well as his efforts to advocate for a full audit of the Fed, which remains as active – and as closely-guarded – as ever.”

Rep. Broun’s version of the bill, H.R. 24, is identical to Rep. Paul’s bill, H.R. 459, which passed the House resoundingly last Congress 327-98 votes with 274 cosponsors.

    • I suppose it all comes down to actually getting a full audit in accord with the terms of H.R. 24, Ray, then it’s all about follow-up. We know a full audit will find the Fed engaged in multitudes of illegitimate activities, so the question then is what will be done to address it. We’ll have to stay on top of this.

    • Congress does indeed control US monetary policy. Congress created the Fed, and the Fed’s actions are but a manifestation of the will of Congress.

      • Congress did not create the Fed… it’s a private cartel created by big banks to snuff out smaller banks and gain complete control of the money supply. There was only one Senator present when it was devised (in secret, because it was illegal from the start). It is not a manifestation of the will of Congress, it is a manifestation of the will of elite globalist bankers. The bill they passed effectively handed over monetary power to them, violating the part of the Constitution that says Congress should control monetary policy. The only thing that bill did was legalize their illegal scheme. Congress isn’t even allowed to review its activities, so how exactly are they in control of it? The point here is to get that power back. Please do some research.

      • Your a delusional idiot! The fed is controlled by private interest groups who are hell bent on destroying the constitution and America.

  1. Thank you Congressman Broun. As a resident of Rabun County I am proud that you are representing the 10 district and striving to help all Americans by bringing to light the way our monetary system is manipulated to crate unfairness across the country and the world.
