This afternoon the House of Representatives will vote on Federal Reserve Transparency Act, introduced by Ron Paul (R – TX) and cosponsored by 274 congresspersons. The act would “require a full audit of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal reserve banks by the Comptroller General of the United States before the end of 2012, and for other purposes.” The Comptroller General is the head of the Government Accountability Office—the arm of Congress responsible for investigations and audits.

Ron Paul’s bill is going to coast through the House, but it faces an uncertain fate in the senate, where good bills go to die, and bad bills go to become even worse.

The senate may very well not even vote on the Fed Transparency Act at all, given that the audit is staunchly opposed by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke—a bipartisan darling of the upper chamber.

After presiding over the worst financial crisis in 80 years, driven in part by the low-interest policies instituted by his predecessor and mentor Alan Greenspan, Bernanke was inexplicably reappointed by President Obama, and was subsequently confirmed with ease in the Senate 70 to 30.

This, despite the fact that Bernanke was woefully wrong multiple times about the course housing prices would take.

Bernanke wants no part of another, fuller, Fed audit, especially considering a previous—albeit partial—one laid bare the extent to which the U.S. central bank has been propping up domestic and international financial institutions.
