Last night Ron Paul made an urgent appeal via a 2 1/2 minute video (see below) for immediate help in contacting senators to reject Bernie Sanders new, watered-down Fed transparency amendment and to support an amendment with the original “Audit the Fed” language of H.R. 1207 and S. 604. A vote on Sanders’ amendment to S. 3217 (the financial services overhaul bill) is expected on Tuesday, May 11.
Here’s the essence of the situation in Ron Paul’s own words as excerpted from a transcript of the video:
I’m not a bit surprised that the Federal Reserve got to the Senate. I had expected Bernie Sanders to offer 604, which was the same as 1207, which is Audit the Fed bill, and at the last minute he switched it and watered it down, and really it adds nothing. It’s a possibility that it even makes the current conditions worse…..
But as we speak — this is Thursday night — they are working on this on the Senate floor. And we need to get as many messages as possible to as many Senators you can think of, especially to Bernie Sanders’ office, that we don’t want this version….
But the only thing that would be fair to the American people after all this work and energy that we put into this is to have an up and down vote on what was our 1207 in the House which is 604 in the Senate….
Here is Ron Paul’s video from last night with his urgent appeal for all “Audit the Fed” supporters to contact their senators in opposition to Senator Sanders’ watered-down Fed transparency amendment to S. 3217 and in support of an amendment with the original H.R. 1207 and S. 604 language.

Next, take action yourself. Contact your own senators via email (scroll down to send a pre-written, editable message) and/or via personal visits and phone calls in opposition to Sanders’ Fed transparency amendment and in support of an amendment that would restore the original “Audit the Fed” language of Ron Paul’s H.R. 1207 and S. 604.
As Ron Paul says in the video, “it’s vital and urgent that we do as much as we can to bombard the Senate with information that we the people deserve to have an up-or-down vote on Audit the Fed bill.”
