Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul and President Norm Singleton issued the following statements regarding Rep. Thomas Massie’s introduction of Audit the Fed (H.R. 24) today.

Ron Paul — “Representative Thomas Massie’s continued leadership on Audit the Fed is just one reason why he is the “gold standard” of pro-liberty legislators in the House of Representatives. With the U.S. economy teetering on the verge of another Federal Reserve-created meltdown, Congress has no excuse to continue to prevent the American people from learning the full truth about the Fed’s conduct (and misconduct) of monetary policy.

“Audit the Fed is one of the few issues that unites libertarians, conservatives, and even sincere progressives like Bernie Sanders. Therefore, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should immediately begin working to pass this bill through Congress and tear down the wall of secrecy, so President Trump can fulfill his campaign pledge to audit the Federal Reserve.”

Norman Singleton — “Audit the Fed has been Campaign for Liberty’s signature issue since 2009 and we are grateful that Thomas Massie has once again stepped forward to bring the fight in the House of Representatives. As President Trump recently said, the Federal Reserve is THE problem with the U.S. economy. Auditing the Fed is the first step toward fixing that problem. Campaign for Liberty stands ready to support Representative Massie’s efforts to pass the bill through the House and Senate.”
