Federal ReserveA vote to audit the Fed could come as early as today. It seems likely that Senate leadership, eager to avoid angering Rahm Emanuel, the Fed, and the big banks, will require 60 votes to pass Bernie Sanders’ amendment, which currently has 18 co-sponsors.

As Jane and David both noted in the last 24 hours, 67 senators have supported an audit of the Federal Reserve in the last year. The imminent vote on Bernie Sanders’ amendment to audit the Fed will show which of the 67 switch sides to magically wind up with a number just short of what’s needed to pass.

Rahm Emanuel is working the phones for the Fed to flip enough votes to stop an audit. Now it’s up to us to work the phones just as hard to help pass the amendment to audit the Fed.
