Jim Cooper votes against an audit of the Federal Reserve.

The House of Representatives passed a bill on September 17 that would require the U.S. comptroller general to make a full audit of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal Reserve banks. The legislation, “The Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2013,” was passed by an overwhelming 333-92 bipartisan vote. The measure received bipartisan support, with 106 Democrats joining 227 Republicans to pass it. The bill has not yet been acted on in the Senate.

Here is how the Tennessee delegation voted.

  1. That's pretty pathetic, Mr. Cooper. You will NOT get my vote.
