Date Set for Audit the Fed Vote!

From Matt Hawes Campaign for Liberty:

I have some very exciting news!

After years of C4L’s hard work to secure a standalone vote on Audit the Fed in the U.S. House, our day has arrived.

C4L has learned that Congressman Ron Paul’s H.R. 459, our Audit the Fed bill, will be voted on next Tuesday, July 24!

But this also means I need the help of each and every C4L member more than ever before.

Audit the Fed will be brought up under a “suspension of the rules.”

So the Fed’s allies won’t be able to offer ANY amendments to try to water down this historic bill!

But…

It also means we need two thirds of the House in order to win – instead of just a simple majority.

So it’s vital you contact your representative right away and spread the word to your friends, family, and online contacts.

Rand, Ron Paul blast government spending

CEDAR RAPIDS – Like a chip off the block, Sen. Rand Paul echoed his father’s warnings that the nation is approaching a financial tipping point.

“Remember the good old days when we measured our deficit in billions and not trillions,” Paul said in Cedar Rapids Aug. 10 as his introduced his father, 2012 Republican presidential hopeful U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas.

With the nation spending $100,000 per second and borrowing $40,000 a second, the Kentucky senator warned the nation may be “rapidly approaching a time we may not be able to pay our bills.”

His father, who Rand Paul described as “one congressman who has been standing up for the taxpayer all along,” offers the best plan for changing the financial course of the nation and asked the audience of about 100 people to support his candidate-father in the Iowa GOP Straw Poll Aug. 13 in Ames.

The elder Paul, a longtime lawmaker, staunch libertarian, and presidential candidate, decried the allegations as an “attempt to scapegoat” Tea Party lawmakers. He pinned the downgrade on the Washington establishment.
