Missouri House of Representatives Passes Audit the Fed Resolution

On March 12, the Missouri House of Representatives passed a resolution sponsored by Rep. Paul Curtman calling on Congress to audit the Federal Reserve.

The Missouri House of Representatives passed a resolution on March 12 calling on Congress to audit the Federal Reserve.

The measure, House Concurrent Resolution 9, was sponsored by state Representative Paul Curtman (R-Dist. 105) and passed by a vote of 122-36.

As the primary sponsor of the resolution, Representative Curtman told The New American in an exclusive interview that his motivation for offering his resolution was the inflationary fiscal policies of the Federal Reserve that he believes will eventually “kill the American wage earner.”

Curtman, a former Marine, says he was spurred by former congressman Ron Paul’s efforts on the federal level to pull the curtain away from the Fed’s unchecked manipulation of the nation’s currency. Curtman’s non-binding resolution informs Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke (as well as other members of the federal government) that Missourians are aware of his perfidy and will not sit idly by while their country’s financial strength is sapped by board members of an unelected and unaccountable central bank.

Ron Paul’s campaign to force the Fed to submit to the will of the people and their elected representatives was renowned.

As recounted on RonPaul.com:

For the past 30 years, Congressman Ron Paul has worked tirelessly to bring much-needed transparency and accountability to the secretive bank. And in 2009 and 2010 his unfaltering dedication showed astonishing results: HR 1207, the bill to audit the Federal Reserve, swept the country and made the central bankers shudder at their desks. The bill passed as an amendment both in the House Financial Services Committee and in the House itself.

Then, in 2012, his final year in the House, Congressman Ron Paul reintroduced the Audit the Fed bill (H.R. 459), which passed the House 327-98.

How has the Federal Reserve done so much damage to the economy?

First, the unelected governors of the unconstitutional central bank have an absolute stranglehold and monopoly over the flow of our nation’s money and credit. Not once since its inception in 1913 has there ever been a thorough audit or an accounting to Congress about its activities.
