List of 75 will be a good place to start when shit hits the fan and the people demand justice.
"I would like to know why I did not see the Senator's name on Senator Sanders' list of sponsors to the Federal Reserve Sunshine Act auditing the Fed. As I'm sure the Senator is well aware, a large majority of Americans are clamoring for visibility into what the Federal Reserve is doing as steward of their currency and I'm sure the Senator is sensitive to the overwhelming desires of his/her constituency, especially as we enter the new election cycle. As this was surely no more than an oversight the Senator will want to correct, I look forward to checking back and seeing your name properly on the list. Thank you and have a good day."
Blow it up, peeps. To the ramparts we go.
Thanks for the cut and paste. Message away.
Second. Although I've emailed those brainless morans (CA) about this several times and have a growing number of form emails in my inbox. Your message is much less profane than mine
You are a lot nicer than I was, but I've contacted Dodd on this one at least 20 times since March...
I find my correspondence with him getting increasingly accusatory.
I just hope that Schiff doesn't get knocked out with a pile driver by Vince McMahon's wife...
Our Senate is turning into an episode of Jerry Springer...
Work those phones, send those emails. You won't find out if we can get to 67 if you don't put in the effort.
Done and done.
Sens. Schumer and Gillibrand:
As a New York resident, I assure you that I and those that I influence are looking for you to cosponsor this legislation and pass it.
COME OUT & PLAY!
+2 (Brooklyn baby)
Call the 75 pro-wall street Senators, and tell them you'll contribute money to their opponents in their next election unless they co-sponsor the bill to audit the Fed.
Contribute money to those in the 25 pro-audit Senators that need re-election funds, like Feingold-D and Vitter-R.
Cross referencing those on the supporting list with Senators up for reelection would be illuminating. What's THAT correlation (I say high). The safe ones vote against, those in the races vote yes. Net effect: no passage.
If anyone here contributes one penny to Feingold, I will hunt them down and will be carrying a rubber band and gloves.
Who cares if Feingold is a democrat? He is anti-bankster.
Don't fall for The Big Lie: The Parties. Neither party gives a damn about YOU, only your vote (if it's even necessary) and both are the enemy unless proven differently.
The enemy of my enemy is my ally and my enemy is the bankster.
Hell, I'd vote for a three-legged goat if it'd sponsor Bernie's bill.
You can find numbers to support your claim by looking at Wall Street lobbying. nearly 50/50 between the parties. Divide and conquer.
The above chart (entitled: Global Liquidity) does pose an interesting correlation between global liquidity and the dollar's rate of change.
His party matters nill to me. His past actions do. Contacting him about the bill is something I will do and encourage everyone to do the same. Giving him money, on the other hand...
I didn't say you have to invite the enemy home for supper, just fight alongside a while.
He voted No on the Patriot Act. That's a get out of jail free card in my book.
(...not that I'm lining up to hand out money)
Mark my words, Max Bacaus will crush this bill into oblivion.
A big threat of leadership is to run a well-financed challenger against rank and file members. However, if we anti-banksters contribute money to politicians fighting to audit the fed and stop handouts to banksters, the congressional leadership loses that threat. And the rank and file can stand up to Baucus, Pelosi, Dodd, and other "leaders" of Congress.
I see a third party brewing here . . . and it's a good thing. I'm not looking for someone to blow sunshine up my ass again, just somebody with a track record and, at the top of it, going after the fed.
Clearly you have been drinking yourself.
I'm drinking, but I still stand by my claim.
Baucus will crush this bill or render it meaningless.
Just sent mail to Kyl of Az to join McCain
Likewise. Thank you.
At least we know who will hold on to their Senate seats.
you hear that gekko. they are going to audit the FED. isn't that nice? :)
My question is where's Dick 'The Bankers own this place' Durbin on the list? You Illinois boys know anything about this?
little dickie is hiding right now. he doesn't want anyone to give him some aspirin for that headache he has. it seems there is some bad aspirin floating around in chitown....:)
C'mon Dick, get some cajones!
TYLER / Is it possible for ZH to put together another "Vote Yes" petition campaign to send to the 75 Senators who have yet to vote for S.604 Sunshine Bill??? Clearly, this is as important as the deficit ceiling campaign. Thank you...
And Tyler, please make it a "lets get the 2/3" or whatever it takes to prevent the presidential veto....
like AR said, "Clearly, this is as important as the deficit ceiling campaign"...and thank you!!!
Make Your Voice Heard To The SEC!
is it time to get out the 7.62 x 51mm pitchforks yet?
Problem is only 33 1/3 Senators up for election next year.
...that number is a lucky one!
They shouldn't even designate them as Democrat or Republican anymore.
They should be designated as to whether they are taking Wall Street/Fed bribes or not.
End Wall Street lobbying now! Audit the Fed now!
Of course, my senators will be nowhere near that list. They are both bought and paid for.
I love Mr. Anonymous!
Mr. Anon, done. Discovered that my state none of the Senators were on the list of 25. Both got e-mails and soon...hard copies from my wife and I of our displeasure in their lack of support for this bill. -Michael
Email your senator. The Senate is where they intend this bill to be killed, maimed or horribly disfigured. At least you can say you tried.
I emailed Schumer and Gillibrand.
Took about 15 seconds.
link to senate emails on top of the thread everybody.
Just got this response from Sen Gillibrand, from an email I sent months ago, have never received a response from Schumer.
Thank you for taking the time to contact me about increasing transparency at the Federal Reserve. Throughout the financial crisis of last fall and the ongoing economic slowdown, the Federal Reserve has lent substantial sums of money to help prevent a further economic meltdown using emergency powers established by Congress after the Great Depression. Throughout my time in Congress, I have worked to promote honest and open government. Last fall, I opposed the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) because of its lack of transparency and oversight provisions. As a result, I share your belief that the extraordinary actions taken by the Federal Reserve merit additional scrutiny from Congress and will work to enhance transparency and oversight as part of the financial regulatory reform package currently being drafted.
Currently, the only component of the Federal Reserve which is not regularly investigated by the Government Accountability Office is its monetary policy function. This exemption was established to address concerns that Congress could use these investigations to pressure the Federal Reserve into taking actions that could drive inflation, causing dramatic increases in the costs of basic goods and services and undermining the Fed's primary objective of monetary stability.
I believe it is critically important that we continue to empower the Federal Reserve to prevent inflation while at the same time providing for a full audit of the Federal Reserve system. As Congress begins to examine how to restructure our financial system, I believe that we must include reforms to provide greater transparency at the Federal Reserve while continuing to prevent inflation and ensure economic stability. I will be working with my colleagues on the Senate Banking Committee to ensure that any financial reform package includes these key principles.
Thank you again for writing to express your concerns and I hope that you keep in touch with my office regarding future legislation and concerns you may have.

"...providing for a full audit of the Federal Reserve system"
well, there we go. Thank you Senator Gillibrand from another New York resident.
For fuck's sake, Deadhead, this is a classic shine on.
I: Identify with the victim's pain: I share your belief that the extraordinary actions by the Federal Reserve merit additional scrutiny.
II:Minimize: Currently, the only part of the Federal Reserve which is not regularly investigated by the Government Accountability Office is its monetary functions.
III Sell Point: I believe it is critically important we continue to empower the Federal Reserve to prevent inflation while at the same time providing for a full audit of the Federal Reserve system.
IV Thank You Close: Thank you for expressing your concerns and I hope you keep in touch.
Jesus, it sounds like it was written by some junior nabob in the GoldmanSachs PR department.
