Just like all potentially Earth shatteringly good news, I'll believe it when I see it. I hope to every deity in the universe that I get to see it. Absolutely revolutionary.

An audit of the Feds will result in the resignations of traitors undermining our subverted nation.

Alan, our country was so big, and rich, and had so many natural resources, and the baby boomers
set the economy in fire that we were able to grow along with a exponential growth in corruption in our highest offices. Plenty of jobs, everyone has happy, so the foxes could steal many of the chickens and not be noticed. Well, that days is over. The third world economies are now world powerhouses, and we are at the brink of bankruptcy. It will take many "brains" to solve this. Unfortunately, that doesn't exist in Washington...only an imitation of the Mafia...bleeding the victim until there's nothing left.

I completely support the audit of the Fed. I want an accounting of where our money went also.

Tragically, the people's enemy in the White House doesn't want the Fed audited, so it's not likely to happen.

Mr. Grayson, or may I call Alan? I am a resident of Georgia, and, therefore, not a constuent of yours. I write to my congressman, Tom Price, and Senator Saxby Chambliss regularly. I get back what most would consider non-responses. Kind of like Dad patting his son on the head and saying, "you just don't understand, son, it's too complicated, and I haven't got time to explain." How sad. First, I want a detailed response when I ask a detailed question. I'm not only not stupid, but judging from what I see, my brain cells outnumber theirs several thousand to one (and, theirs is very lonely). I fully support his seeming bi-partisan effort to control a non-government entity that is on the verge of destroying our country. I say seeming, because the Reps seem to only support things as a means to get voter support, not because of the logic of them. This amendment would seem to be one of the baseline measures toward meaningful financial reform. There are others, but this is essential. And, I tried your web site, but there is no link to the actual amendment, so I found a link at Bernie Sanders' website, if anyone else is interested.

Thomas Jefferson once said, "If the America people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currencies, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their prosperity until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

The federal reserve is only a private corporation masquerading as our national bank in which the government has no control over them. Personally I think we should get rid of the federal reserve if not audit them and make everything transparent.

So many people do not know it is a private bank. The Fed web site does not give you very clear info either.

I commend you and all your efforts on our behalf.
Unfortunately (or fortunately), all my representatives are on your page, so there's not much I can do. I hope this amendment goes through. The media needs to cover it on prime-time.

The American people must not let this issue go. Theres not much hope of the FED being audited and if they do the public won't get to see the whole house of cards. Keep the pressure on and worse comes to worse vote them out.

Rep. Grayson, I really like not just what you're doing (which is amazing, and a fresh of breath air that makes a typhoon look like a squealy balloon), but also your humor and class. Thank you.

Once the audit is complete then it will become blatantly obvious that the Federal Reserve is a dubious un-Constitutional entity that should've never been created back in 1913.

Let's END-THE-FED!

It's requried for a geniune recovery an rebuilding of the U.S. economy.

Speaking of the constitution it requires an accounting of the public funds, and for that accounting to be made public from time to time.. Look it up.

And isn't their function, or rather their agreement in exchange for being the government's lender, to regulate inflation and play an instrumental role in stabilizing our economy by balancing this arbitrary financial system? Isn't it cause enough to fire them based on that great failure?

MSNBC's "The Dylan Ratigan Show" has simply become the "must watch" program on financial reform:

“Outstanding” MSNBC “The Dylan Ratigan Show” Segment with Representatives Allan Grayson and Ron Paul on critical pending legislation and the effort to audit the Federal Reserve:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/%20%2031510813/ns/msnbc_tv-the_dylan_ratigan_show#36922852

Powerful quote from Representative Grayson:

“Dylan it’s very simple, if you vote for those amendments your are for the American people, if you vote against them, you are with the banks. People will remember.”

On Senator Sanders’ effort:

“Sanders claims growing bipartisan support for Fed audit measure”
http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/95447-sanders-claims-growing-bipartisan-support-for-fed-audit-measure

Senator Sanders and “Sens. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.), Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), John McCain (R-Ariz.), Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.), David Vitter (R-La.), Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Sam Brownback (R-Kansas), Jim Risch (R-Idaho), Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), and Mike Crapo (R-Idaho)”

*Thank you all for your responsible work on this laudable effort for the American people.

Thank you Representative Grayson. I think the FED is one of those entities of which Pretty Boy Floyd was speaking when he said:

"As you wander through this world, you see lots of funny men.
Some will rob you with a six-gun, some with a fountain pen."

Some things never change.
