That he won’t have the Fed anymore to print monopoly money to finance his pet projects. Scum look out for scum.

I’m against “auditing” the Fed too!

It should be ELIMINATED!

Good for Corker. Enough of this ridiculous nonsense.

I am curious as to why you think it’s nonsense.

One step at a time. Best to expose it for the whole world to see first.

I would really like to see who actually OWNS the Federal reserve and, by extension, the US Government.

I just wrote him a polite email telling him that he should publicly change his position or he will lose my support.

I don’t believe in any of the conspiracies about the Federal Reserve, but I don’t see why making them open their books to the world should be considered “ridiculous nonsense.”

It is ridiculous to think that an agency responsible for this nations financial health should be playing close to their chest like a hedge fund.

Perhaps you can expand your position and why you think transparency is ridiculous?

“Ridiculous nonsense”, babble-on? Why, because it could get your acting-president into trouble?

Van Hillary deserves universal conservative scorn for ensuring Corker’s victory over Ed Bryant in the 2006 primary. If he ever runs for anything again, even dog catcher, I hope a special fundraising effort is mounted to defeat him.
