Three cheers for Congressman Chris Murphy!

I understand that Chris Murphy has cosponsored HR 1207 - Audit the Fed! There are now 250 cosponsors in the House.

Good for you Chris! It was the right thing to do.

I also understand that Chris is the first member (of CTs five House members) to cosponsor Ron Paul's legislation.

Not good enough. Pelosi will never bring this bill to the floor since Barney Frank will never schedule a hearing.

He needs to sign a discharge petition.

Barney Frank has been in a bind on this one for a while. I understand he actually drew up a similar bill more than a decade ago.

Now that he's in the so-called Leadership, he always gives due consideration to his masters (Bernanke, Geithner, etc.)

But from what I've heard, HR 1207 is on the docket for a hearing TODAY in the HFSC. I'll be watching to see if that happens.
