After a bit of a lull in additional cosponsorship Ron Paul’s HR1207 bill to audit the Federal Reserve added 10 more sponsors and is now up to 175! That leaves it 43 shy of attaining a majority of the House cosponsoring the bill!
In a bit of an odd development a House member who many thought should have signed on to HR1207 a long time ago has introduced a “copy-cat” bill. Dennis Kucinich has introduced HR2424 to do more or less the same thing as Paul’s bill although Kucinich’s bill seems to be narrowly focused on the recent financial mess. Ron Paul’s bill is the more comprehensive of the two bills. One wonders if Kucinich and his Democratic friends in Congress are trying to pull the teeth out of Ron Paul’s bill. The plot thickens! Of course, at this time HR2424 has 3 cosponsors. Perhaps we should start keeping score?
