A good friend of mine with an uncanny knack for spotting the little things other people miss pointed out what is probably the only issue with this
He stated that a politician (ie. Congressman) with foul intent could request an audit of the Fed as a sort of stalling tactic. When a business is
audited, its workings come to a grinding halt as the company's financiers attempt to gather all the vital information required of Uncle Sam. What
would happen, do you suppose, if the ultimate financial entity in the United States was audited? How long did the bill give them? Until 2011?
So, imagine for a moment a representative with an unethical agenda that only needs to keep the financial powers-that-be busy for a few years to
complete whatever sinister plot he has in mind. I, for one, can think of a number of unhealthy situations when such a stall in the financial sector of
government would be more than beneficial.
This bill will set a precedent that allows anyone in government to call for an audit of the Fed.
Personally, I'm behind the bill 100%. This little rambling bit is just something of an eye-opener to make sure we see the other side of the coin as
