HR 1207 * Fax Bomb * - Friday 3/25 - Fax Your Representatives Kit

If you agree with HR 1207 and would like to help - please send faxes to your representatives, this Friday 3/25, requesting that they co-support HR 1207 - Federal Reserve Transparency Act. 

At the time of this post, there are 44 cosponsors (see the list below) in the House - I don't believe there are any
in the Senate. Only fax them if they're not a cosponsor yet.  The idea for the fax bomb started over at the Ron Paul Forums. 

If you don't have a fax machine, you can send at least 2 faxes for free per day with www.faxzero.com. And even though this is a fax bomb, you are free to email and call as well

- Sample Letter -

Dear Representative,

I urgently seek your Support of H.R. 1207: The Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009.

Recently,
it has come to light that the Federal Reserve is not accountable to
American citizens. While we are required by law to give an accounting
of every penny we come in contact with, the Federal Reserve, in
contrast, can spend as it pleases without Congressional approval or
oversight. In this economic crisis, we deserve an accounting of how our
money
is being spent-- H.R. 1207 will shed light on the Federal Reserve.
President Obama pledged to bring transparency to Washington D.C., and
by supporting this piece of legislation you are assisting the President in achieving this very worthy goal.

It should be noted that a common error among many members of Congress
is that Title 12, Ch.3, Subchapter II, §248b, which orders the Board of
Governors to give an annual independent audit of the Federal Reserve,
provides substantive information to Congress or the public. In reality,
these audits do not provide Congress with the critical information of
how the Federal Reserve is handling trillions of taxpayer dollars, and
we need to untie the hands of the Government Accountability Office by
reforming Title 31, section 714 to allow them to conduct full,
comprehensive audits.

As of today, almost $10 trillion in bailouts and loans have been agreed
to by Congress, the Treasury Department, and the Federal Reserve.

With
our national debt approaching $11 trillion, it is critical that we
demand a full accounting of how the government has spent our money.

The
Federal Reserve, the unelected central bank of the United States,
releases details of its meetings and activities on its own time-table,
if at all. Its monopoly over the flow of money and credit in our
country has once again led us into a preventable economic crisis.

Yet,
the Federal Reserve has refused to tell Congress and the rest of us how
it is spending our tax dollars as it piles bailout on top of bailout
and lends to other nations.

The Treasury’s supplementary financing accounts that fund Fed facilities allow the Treasury to funnel money to Wall Street without GAO or Congressional oversight.
