Leaving little doubt regarding his feelings on the growing influence of the Ben Bernanke led Federal Reserve, GOP candidate Mitt Romney says its time for an audit investigation into the FED:
Borrowing Rep. Ron Paul’s presidential campaign push, Mitt Romney said Monday he thinks the Federal Reserve should face an audit.
“Very plain and simple, the answer is yes. The Federal Reserve should be accountable. We should see what they’re doing,” Mr. Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, said at a town hall in New Hampshire.
Mr. Paul, the Texas congressman who is still technically in the running for the Republican nomination, though he does not have the delegates to win it at next week’s convention, made an audit of the Fed a chief part of his campaign.
Our own Wall Street insider, over the course of numerous interviews, pointed both to the need to do battle against Ben Bernanke and the Federal Reserve, as well as demanding I and others maintain respect for many of the ideals represented by the Ron Paul campaign.
It certainly appears something has taken place behind the scenes to bring those ideals into the Romney campaign and the GOP platform.
That kind of “something” normally takes influence – and that kind of influence normally only comes from those with considerable resources.
