The Republican-controlled Committee on Oversight and Government Reform approved a bill earlier today to allow for a congressional audit of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy, a proposal Fed policymakers have opposed and likely faces a difficult path to final approval in the Senate. Under the bill, the Fed’s monetary policy deliberations could be subject to outside review by the Government Accountability Office.

While similar bills have garnered some support from Democrats in the past, they uniformly spoke against the current proposal during a meeting of the House of Representatives suggesting the current iteration would face stronger resistance from an increasingly polarized environment in Washington D.C..

What Are the Republicans Waiting For?

By Laurence M. Vance

March 28, 2017

It’s déjà vu all over again.

The inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20 means that, once again, the Republicans have absolute control of the government. The Republicans regained control of the Congress that they had lost during the last two years of the presidency of George W. Bush when House Republicans won a majority of seats in the 2010 midyear elections and Senate Republicans won a majority of seats in the 2014 midyear elections. Just like when the Republicans held a majority in both Houses of Congress during the last six years of Bill Clinton’s presidency, all that was lacking was a Republican president “to make America great again.”

This happened two other times in recent history. Republicans had a majority in Congress for the first two years of Dwight Eisenhower’s presidency (1953-1955). They also had a majority in Congress for over four years under George W. Bush. Here is why it was not for an even four or six years. At the time of Bush’s inauguration in 2001, the Republicans controlled both Houses of Congress. The Republicans held on to their majority in the Senate until May 24, 2001, when Republican senator Jim Jeffords switched from Republican to Independent and ended Republican control of the Senate. Republicans regained control of the Senate in the 2002 midterm elections, and then remained in control of both Houses of Congress until their defeat in the 2006 midterm elections.

There are a few things that were left out of the reports seen on television and reported in newspapers that we felt you should be made aware of. What brought this to our attention was this article Oklahoma lawmaker receiving backlash after asking Muslim students to fill out ‘hateful’ questionnaire before meeting with them.

Some Democrats insist there was no foreign voter fraud in the 2016 election. But they also insist the Russians got Trump elected. That, they claim, makes him an illegitimate president. Holman Jenkins, writing in the WSJ, doesn’t buy it: The idea of Mr. Trump as Russian agent is one more failure of imagination by the media—a striving

Statist politicians are too easily convinced of their own brilliance when it comes to “managing the economy”. They don’t seem to realize that the economy is us. The economy is made up of people, and those who would try to manage the economy through government force will always do so by trying to control people. #MakeMarketsFreeAgain
