(ht Zero Hedge and Washington’s Blog) In an interview with Wall St. Cheat Sheet‘s Damien Hoffman, Congressman Alan Grayson offers such stunning information as:

Just a few weeks ago, while Chairman Bernanke was testifying to Congress, we examined the Fed balance sheet and P&L statement only to find what looked like the Fed handing over half a trillion dollars to foreigners. This was very surprising! When I asked Chairman Bernanke if this was true, he said, “Yes.” When I asked him who got the money, he said, “Fourteen foreign Central Banks.” And when I asked to who did they give the money, he said, “I don’t know.” “I don’t know” is not good enough when you’re talking about $500 billion. That’s $1700 for every man, woman, and child in this country…In the case of another $230 billion, it has been tracked as a secret bailout to Citicorp in the US. The fact is the Federal Reserve continuously puts all of us on the hook for decisions they make to play favorites with private interests to the tune of trillions of dollars…

HR 1207 passage is now guaranteed in the House because there are plenty of co-sponsors. But, there are only 25 senators co-sponsoring the senate’s version (Bernie Sander’s bill) of the Audit the FED bill.  If they are not on the list, please ask your senators why they are not supporting the bill. Remember… if your senator responds something like: “It’s important to maintain Federal Reserve Independence…”   Tell them, the FED must answer to SOMEBODY.  Congress authorized the FED- Congress should do its job and oversee the FED – and not let the banks do it for them.  These crooks need to go to jail…
