Federal Reserve Hires PR Wizard to Fight HR 1207 Bill

As HR 1207 gains momentum and co-sponsors in the House of Representatives, the Federal Reserve is planning to fight the tide calling for an audit of its books by hiring a veteran lobbyist to “manage its relations with Congress,” according to Reuters.

The Fed plans to hire Linda Robertson, who previously worked for now-defunct energy company Enron, as well as the Clinton administration. She is currently head of government, community and public relations at The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. Robertson “spent eight years in senior positions at the Treasury Department, working for three secretaries: Lloyd Bentsen, Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers,” a bio posted on The John Hopkins University website states.

Robert Rubin, as secretary of the Treasury, recommended that Congress pass legislation to reform or repeal the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, while Lawrence Summers in the same capacity organized the looting of Russia, stripping one trillion dollars from Russia’s struggling economy in the name of the bankers.

“Members of Congress have chafed at the Fed’s bold use of its emergency powers and in particular its multibillion-dollar bailouts of investment bank Bear Stearns and insurer American International Group,” Reuters continues. “Critics also bristle at the Fed’s practice of maintaining the confidentiality of the companies that borrow directly from the central bank on the grounds that divulging their names would risk runs on those institutions.”

It's a morph of Obama and Bush because they might as well be the same person. They're both puppets working for the same people.

And I'm all about this bill also, every American should be, but the Federal Reserve is obviously not all about this bill, and it is pretty disturbing that they are now hiring PR people to lobby congress.

good call on that one lol it was really striking to me so I had to ask. But yeah, I think its an absolute outrage that the Fed is against this. I would like to know when government transparency is a bad thing. They are spending OUR money - should we not get to know on what, where, when and why they are spending it?
