Harry Reid vows Federal Transparency Act will never be voted on in the Senate

Harry Reid

Supporters of Rep. Ron Paul and sound monetary policy rejoiced online as they heard of the passage of H.R. 456, the Federal Transparency Act, on Wednesday. Their joy, however, was short-lived as within an hour of the bill passing word spread from the office of the Harry Reid. The Senate Majority Leader and Nevada Democrat has vowed the Federal Transparency Act will not be put to a vote in the Senate.

Harry Reid had previously expressed support for an audit of the Federal Reserve. Perhaps seeing the overwhelming support the H.R. 459 received in the House of Representatives made Reid wary of the Federal Transparency Act passing. H.R. 459passed by a bipartisan vote of 327-98.

Ron Paul supporters have already begun to get active online, sharing the contact information to Harry Reid’s office. One supporter called his office instantly, claiming that he would be encouraging his friends to vote Harry Reid out of office.

The contact information being shared is the following:
