Congressman Thomas Massie

Representing the 4th District of Kentucky

Federal Reserve Transparency

As Lewis County Judge executive, my primary objective was to find and eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse in local government.

I plan to continue that mission in Congress by fighting for a full Audit of the Federal Reserve. The American people deserve to know how their money is spent.

Without transparency and full disclosure of the Fed’s monetary policy decisions and operations, our central bank could continue on its unsustainable trajectory which has already cost American taxpayers trillions in bailouts and loans.  

Given the financial instability we’ve seen abroad in some Euro-zone countries, it’s time to end the fiscal insanity and hold the Federal Reserve accountable to Congress, citizens of Kentucky, and the American people as a whole.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee (OGR), chaired by Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), has announced it will consider Congressman Thomas Massie’s H.R. 24, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2015, also known as “Audit the Fed,” in a markup session on Tuesday, May 17, 2016. A committee markup, where committee members offer amendments and debate whether legislation is ready for consideration by the full House, is the important step between introducing a bill and voting on it on the floor of the House.

“Audit the Fed” is here to stay.

The movement to bring greater transparency to the Federal Reserve will be in full force in the new Congress, with Republican lawmakers in both the House and the Senate eager to reintroduce legislation in early 2015 requiring a full “audit” of the central bank.
