(h/t to “dkmich“)
Alan Grayson is quickly becoming a hero to “the left”. Ron Paul, while viewed as right wing, has his defender here (and I agree with him more often than I sometimes care to admit.) Whatta posted something about Paul sponsoring a bill to force the Fed to open their books. Well…
In a manner truly befitting the candor and honesty of their politics, they wrote a letter to Chris Dodd. Paul and Grayson want the Fed to open itself up to public scrutiny before the Senate confirms Bernanke.

It’s sort of ironic. In that old “Realpolitik” thread (that board’s posts were lost in the move) I asked everyone to name the things they thought needed changing, what’s broke … I can’t remember the exact words that I used. What I do remember is that everyone, right left and middle, seemed to agree that most of our problems could be traced back to “runaway capitalism”. Corps buying politicians (and therefore subverting the people’s government), lobbyist money corrupting politicians, big companies swallowing up little companies and treating their workers like shit…
No wonder it’s so hard to get the Fed to open their books.
I hope that these guys can pull it off.
