This is NOT a Republican/Democrat Issue! This is about YOUR MONEY, how it is being spent, and what it is being spent on!

Ron Paul’s legislation HR 1207, The Federal Reserve Transparency Act, is gaining support. HR 1207 has 55 co-sponsors and real potential to pass — BUT only if we educate and rally the people to support it and get our Congresspeople to put it to vote and pass it.

HR 1207 will open the Fed to transparency. We must not miss this opportunity.

It is now in the House Committee on Financial Services. This is THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP in this legislation! If it doesn’t get out of committee it will not come to a vote! There are 71 members on this committee and they are all listed below.

We need to let them know that we want them to allow full house consideration of HR 1207 so it can move forward; we need them to support this. Now is the time.

Call their offices, write to them, email them, etc. Let them know they need to support HR 1207. If you live in their district, let them know. Go to their office.
