An Anti-Fed Hearing for Ron Paul
This Friday, at 9:30 a.m., the House Financial Services Committee is going to hold a hearing on HR 1207, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act introduced this year by Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas).
The Fed-centric congressman — he’s currently selling a new book on the subject, “End the Fed” – has collected 291 co-sponsors, including every single member of the House Republican conference, on the bill. And his biggest allies on the Democratic side of the aisle are Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), the committee’s chairman, and freshman Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), a lawyer with some libertarian flashes—he reportedly hounded Paul for some face time and a joint appearance when the Texas Republican was in the Orlando area this year.
