Sanders, Feingold, DeMint & Brownback Oppose Dodd, Support “Audit the Fed”
By Jane Hamsher | FireDogLake

Ryan Grim reports that a bipartisan group of Senators is backing an amendment that will restore the Grayson-Paul “audit the fed” language to the Senate Financial Reform bill after Chris Dodd gutted it.

An amendment by Bernie Sanders would restore the teeth of the Paul-Grayson language, and he’s joined by Republicans John McCain (Ariz.), Jim DeMint (S.C.), David Vitter (La.) and Sam Brownback (Kan.), as well as Russ Feingold and chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Sen. Pat Leahy (D-Vt.).

“The group is actively gathering cosponsors as the Senate continues to vote to break a GOP filibuster which is preventing debate from beginning,” writes Grim.

Last year, FDL circulated a letter signed by Richard Trumka, Andy Stern, Leo Gerard, Bill Black, Tyler Durden, Dean Baker and Jamie Galbraith in support of the Grayson-Paul language. Campaign for America’s Future also circulated a letter signed by Robert Borosage, Adam Green (PCCCO), Matt Kibbee (Freedomworks), Grover Norquist, Robert Weisman (Public Citizen), Chris Bowers and Ryan Alexander (Taxpayers for Common Sense) in support of Grayson-Paul.
