Congresswoman DeGette Only member of CO Delegation to Vote AGAINST Auditing the Fed
I am copying this from a FB post by the Republican candidate for Congressional District 1, Danny Stroud. He addresses his comments specifically to us in the "fringes" of Arapahoe County who are in CD1. I am one of them, and feel routinely ignored and unrepresented by the person who has held this office for way too long (going on 16 years).
Please look into Mr Stroud, as he most certainly will be a better representative for Colorado's First Congressional District than it's current elected official.
For you people in Arapahoe County who are new to CD1:
Earlier this week every single member of the Colorado Congressional delegation voted to audit the federal reserve....EXCEPT Diana DeGette.
The ability to provide oversight of the Federal Reserve’s dealings is hindered by current law that prohibits the Government Accountability Office (GAO) from auditing aspects of the bank’s activities including monetary policy matters and transactions with foreign entities. H.R. 459 would increase transparency.
Considering the fiscal condition of our country, it defies common sense that there is currently no full oversight over the Federal Reserve. Because the bank sets the monetary policy that impacts every American citizen and holds a balance sheet of $3 trillion. The bill that Rep DeGette voted against will allow a full audit of all aspects of the Federal Reserves activities, including the decision-making behind monetary policy. The ability to fully audit the Federal Reserve is long overdue.
That Congresswoman DeGette would be against this transparency is baffling and not consistent with her duties as a Congressional representative. http://www.doyouregretdegette.com/
