Most of the media have missed it, but Ron Paul's bill to audit the Fed has moved forward in the House Oversight Committee with the support of many liberals and Democrats, as well as Republicans and conservatives. Check out the recent story in The Hill that is ahead of the political market about this.

I have not always agreed with Ron Paul about economic policy, but I agree with him about this and urge members of both parties to support his bill.

In my years of experience in politics, media and business I have learned that secrecy is usually the enemy of common sense, fairness and sound policy. Reasonable people can differ about exactly how an audit of the Fed should be structured, but fundamentally, Ron Paul is right about this and his bill should be passed.
