Action Needed! Stop Bernanke Confirmation!

By Heather D

This could be the week that the Federal Reserve Sunshine Act receives just recognition in the Senate.

The vote to reconfirm Ben Bernanke as Federal Reserve Chairman is due to take place this week. Senator’s DeMint, David Vitter, Jim Bunning, and Bernie Sanders are working together to place a “hold” on the confirmation until the Senate votes on S 604. Please click here for more details on this effort.

According to Campaign for Liberty President, John Tate:

A strong message from Campaign for Liberty activists like you could start a stampede in the Senate that will make Harry Reid back off of Bernanke and give us a vote on Audit the Fed.

Here is what our Senators need to know:

1.) If they are not cosponsoring Audit the Fed, you expect them to sign on in support of finding out what the Fed has done with trillions of our dollars. Tell them you will make sure their constituents know of their action or inaction on this issue.

2.) They must vote “no” on cloture until after there is a vote on Audit the Fed. No vote should be taken on Ben Bernanke’s confirmation, or the nomination of anyone else for Fed Chairman, until Audit the Fed has received a public, up or down vote. The real issue here is not the Fed chairman himself. It is the need for complete transparency.

As we approach the one year anniversary of the initiation of our Audit the Fed battle, we have a very real chance to bring this bill to the floor of the Senate for a vote. The prize is within sight, but we must act now! Please commit to calling each of our Senators at least once this week.
