Senator Vitter tried to get Ron Paul's "Audit the Fed" measure appended to the so-called financial regulation bill. The effort failed, 37 to 62. Please take action . . .
Then, send a letter to Congress that does the following . . .
* Thank a Senator if he or she voted yes
* Spank a Senator if he or she voted no
* Add a request for both of your Senators and your House Rep. to please vote against the so-called financial regulation bill.
The hard-wired message for this campaign reads: Please pass legislation requiring an audit of the Fed.
I'm in Arizona. For my letter to Congress I added the following personal comments, after which you can model your own . . .
I'm displeased that the Senate voted down the Vitter amendment, which would have given us a complete audit of the Fed. Thank you to Senator McCain for voting yes on the amendment, but I am very unhappy with Senator Kyl for voting against it.
I want to urge both of my Senators, and my House Rep., who is also getting this message, to please vote down the financial regulation bill as a whole. It's just another bloated Washington, DC mess.
Let every Senator be overwhelmed with letters! Retweet this.
Thanks for being part of the Downsize DC Army.
