‘Audit the Fed’ Bill Failure Exposes List of Senators In Bed With the Federal Reserve

audit-the-fed

Washington, D.C. – On Tuesday, Senate Democrats were able to block a vote on Sen. Rand Paul’s ‘Audit the Fed’ bill, that would have forced the Federal Reserve into greater transparency and required an audit of the secretive central bank.

The bill received almost unanimous support among Republicans, with votes from Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., and Vermont independent Sen. Bernie Sanders also voting for the measure. Conspicuously absent from the vote was presidential candidate Ted Cruz, who had previously proclaimed his support for the bill — but was too busy campaigning in New Hampshire to make it back to D.C. to actually vote.

The powerful private banking cartel currently controls the monetary policy of the United States, setting interest rates and managing the nation’s money supply with virtually no outside oversight.

The Federal Reserve Bank is made up of 12 different Federal Reserve Banks around the country that are owned by big private banks, with a Board of Governors whose seven members are appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate.

The bill would have authorized the General Accounting Office (GAO) to have access to more information as part of an audit and required greater transparency from Federal Reserve monetary policy makers, but fell short of the needed 60 votes for consideration.

Critics of the bill claimed that it would hurt small business and workers, give favor of big banks and Wall Street, while simultaneously politicizing monetary policy.

“We’ll see many members of Congress pushing the Fed to side with the bondholders and Wall Street on combating inflation rather than siding with main street and small businesses and workers in dealing with unemployment,” said Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, who spoke against the bill.

In a Brookings Institution blog post Former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke wrote:

“The principal effect of the bill would be to make meeting-by-meeting monetary policy decisions subject to Congressional review” with more transparency allowing for “political interventions in monetary policy decisions [that] would not lead to better results.”

The problem is that these assertions by Brown and Bernanke are contrary to what the measure would actually work to accomplish.

Former congressman Ron Paul, the original champion of the ‘Audit the Fed’ idea, weighed in on the defeat and expressed his bewilderment at the irrationality behind the oppositions logic.

“I can’t imagine anyone voting against transparency. This whole thing that it would be politicized if Congress has something to say about it — it’s always politicized,” he says, “it’s just who’s behind the scenes doing the politicizing. And that’s what they don’t want to know, because the special interests are the political forces that direct monetary policy,” Ron Paul said.

There have been a number of attempts to audit the Fed since the 2008 economic crisis, with little success. Similar measures were passed by the House in 2012 and 2015, but never made it up for a vote in the Senate.

The GAO has gained a small amount of oversight powers and performed an audit pursuant to the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform act, which revealed the institution had been hijacked by the very bankers it’s supposed to regulate, according to Senator Bernie Sanders.

“Too much of the Fed’s business is conducted in secret, known only to the bankers on its various boards and committees. In 2010, I inserted an amendment in Dodd-Frank to audit the emergency lending by the Federal Reserve during the financial crisis. As a result of this audit, we learned that an institution that was created to serve all Americans had been hijacked by the very bankers it regulates.

We must expand on that first review of the Fed’s activities. Requiring the Government Accountability Office to conduct a full and independent audit of the Fed each and every year, would be an important step towards making the Federal Reserve a more democratic institution that is responsive to the needs of ordinary Americans rather than the billionaires on Wall Street,” Sanders wrote in a statement explaining why he voted for the measure.

Sen. Paul’s measure would have authorized the GAO to review more information as part of an audit, but opponents said that would give lawmakers too much information and power to exercise oversight. The idea that big banks should not have transparency and oversight because it would cause problems is virtually insane.

I wonder if this tax season the government will accept if I tell them that more oversight is actually bad economic policy and they need to allow me to enact my monetary policy without political interference, thus refusing to file taxes.

Below is a list of how each senator voted.

  • We’re slowly waking more people up to the reality of the world around them. Please help us by clicking (Y) + Commenting + Sharing this story. Thank you friends.

    • It is like asking to release 26 secret pgs of 911 report…. Obama said he will do it…….Presidents are not over control !!

  • What is auditing the fed really gonna do tho? We all know what the fed is doing. We need to abolish the fed. Period.

    • Absolutely! Thank you!

    • Expose tyranny to the masses that will give the support needed to end the fed. They won’t easily give up the federal reserve without a fight. It will take mass civil unrest for this to happen.

    • Even a full blown audit won’t wake up these zombies. They have been audited before. Fyi.

  • They can’t audit them. It would cause a nationwide riot if it got out our gold and money are gone.

    • That’s the point. Then the real changes will occur and our country will be restored back to a Republic. Right after the revolution/ revolutionary war. Federal reserve will be gone. It will hurt our economy but go back to the gold and silver standard. Bring back bartering and other acceptance of value. Pull out troops out of every country. Close the border and strengthen our country’s security until we solve our own problems first.

    • Punish every act of tyranny with death including all of the MSM and corporate executives, bank executives, etc to lead by example. The MSM will be held accountable for their disservice to America. If you stand in front of a camera and openly lie and spread propaganda, then you are a terrorist

  • What’s new ? Fucker$$$$$$$$$$$$

  • I wonder why Democrats don’t want to audit the Federal Reserve; Sanders voted to audit, I like him even more now.

    • The reasoning to vote against the bill is simple, those voting against it are bought.

      The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.

      ~The United States Constitution

    • The response for the opposition about small business being adversely effected is a blatant lie…

      These thieves are bought.

    • Don’t forget Cruz. Who didn’t even show up.

    • Youve got to be kidding. Sanders sold out on the last Audit the Fed bill and then he called for another. Forget audit the Fed. End it!

    • Yeah sanders only voted for it because he knew it wouldn’t past. He’s voted against every other bill so fuck him. Especially with his uber shit. It’s fine to be economically retarded when you’re a career politician, we get it, you don’t know anything about having to work. But at least maintain some dignity and credibility.

    • Sanders voted it for because: A) He knew it wouldn’t pass AND B) His whole bullshit phony campaign platform would collapse if he voted against it.

    • Well, looks like the Trumpets have arrived.

    • Bernie Corporate Welfare Sanders? Bernie More Patriot Act Sanders? Bernie Let’s Keep Bombing Them Sanders?

  • Audit the fed! Since can’t do that he at least exposes who those in political power are choosing ; exposing them for us average voting people.

  • He works for them

  • We have to face it people, if we audited the FED right now, the whole game would be up. That means a complete collapse. Elected officials are not going to throw the bankers under the bus because they know it’s the end for everyone. It may well end soon despite all of that. The rumor is that a secret transition to a new system has been agreed to. I don’t put much faith in that, but time will tell. One thing’s for sure, America will never be the same.

  • Why should anyone be surprised? The Fed and the CFR run this corporation we call a country! The congress, president and supreme court are merely window dressing propping up a facade! Banks and multinational corporations ARE the REAL nations of the world today. So-called countries are merely DBAs and holding companies. When are Americans finally going to figure this out?

  • “The principal effect of the bill would be to make meeting-by-meeting monetary policy decisions subject to Congressional review” with more transparency allowing for “political interventions in monetary policy decisions [that] would not lead to better results.”

    ~Ben Bernanke

    What Ben is saying is that Congress and We The People shouldn’t have any say in our monetary system because we do not know what is best for us…

    Though our Constitution states: CONGRESS “HAS THE POWER TO COIN MONEY, REGULATE THE VALUE THEREOF, AND OF FOREIGN COIN, AND FIX THE STANDARD OF WEIGHTS AND MEASURES…”

    -Article 1, Section 8, clause 5 of The United States Constitution

  • No amount of voting will clear out this den of rats.

  • Of course…where do you think their salary comes from?

  • Crypto Currency is the answer..

  • I had an image of being in bed with Janet Yellen. I may never forgive you!

  • They are all in bed with the Federal Reserve. Even if the bill had passes do you really think anything would have come from it?

  • Yes America is arming islamic religious extremist to overthrow other countries for corporate establishment interests but the right-wing in America is arming christian religious extremists to overthrow our own country for corporate establishment interests ~ AWA

  • typical side show theatrics. And Paul is in on it imo. Just like his dad stumped for the NWO as well.

  • Paul was there, spoke on the floor and voted.

  • This is why we are enslaved, and everyone sitting in D.C is a millionaire or about to be one!

  • traitors list

  • The Federal Reserve bank should be taken out of private hands. The Fed does not and will not take the people of the US into consideration. They are businessmen that are ruthless towards ordinary people….as a matter of fact they have name for the people of the US. It is called ” Consumers “. In their eyes you are not human….just consumers.

  • CRUZ!!!! The biggest fake anti-Establishment candidate right next to Trump.

  • No the co sponsor rand pual showed up it was ted cruz who didn’t come

  • We the people must come together and demand it

  • Approx 33T in the federal reserve prior to 2007. They find ways to spend it. Money goes in and out everyday. #USDHS audit

  • So, Boxer and Feinstein voted “no”. Thank you. We need this transparency!

  • The FED currently has about 39.5 billion on hand in liquid assets. Officially, they have about 5.5 TRILLION in liabilities, unofficially that number could be 2 QUADRILLION. It’s a ticking bomb on paper, but as long as the Military Industrial Complex has a lock on the financial technological infrastructure as they do now, along with control of the shipping lanes, they can keep the game alive. It may mean total reinvention of the US economic system within the next couple of years though.

  • Oliver Daniel talk about politicians ‘being in bed’…

  • In bed with the Mob

  • I was never going to happen … Fucking ridiculous

  • That’d be all of them then!

  • Audit the fed? Shit it should be End the fed.

  • They just said sex was a gift so why wouldn’t they be in bed.

  • REGARDING BERNIE SANDERS
    After (or even before) electing Bernie Sanders president, we have to find and elect more candidates who share Bernie’s values and principles, which are our values and principles, America’s values and principles at heart.
    Let’s call this political revolution what it is – The Sanders Party – and let’s make it STICK.
    The new face of politics is honesty, sharing and no corporate or billionaire/millionaire funding. Bernie has already brought us back on track, he must have our support to the point where he wins, and if the system takes his obvious pending victory away from him we have to run him and others like him again and again.
    And We The People will fund these Sanders Party candidates and back them to the point where all the remaining corporate puppets will not have a chance.
    This means paper ballots with duplicate exact paper receipts at every polling station from now on so we the people can hold indisputable recount after recount until we prove that our candidate is the new president, congressperson, senator etc… until we slowly, surely, non-violently, systematically take control of our government and banking industries again.
    Let’s show the powers that be that they are about to become the powers that were by creating a Bernie Sanders system of political candidate vetting that gives the people a choice of a Sanders candidate at every turn, for every political position there is, at every election.
    Honesty, Sharing and No big money contributors to campaigns.
    We can do this, we will do this, America is being taken back by us – We The People.
    The US Constitution will replace all laws and legal codes to begin the system again! We will print our own money and you will be able to go the bank and get a silver or gold coin for your 20 dollar note in times of uncertainty.

    • Bernie could win all 50 state primaries, and he would still not get the Democratic nomination, because he is not anointed. It is cute, though, how Bernie supporters still believe Democrats actually believe in democracy. It’s also cute how Bernie supporters believe their career politician/professional liar is honest. Keep in mind Bernie has consistently opposed “audit the fed” efforts before he created his phony campaign platform.

    • Hypocritical little turd. Lol

    • Now here’s the wooliest of all the sheep. Read in awe at the idiocy of which it states. Yet its blind believe is the thing all should fear most.

    • Bernie Corporate Welfare Sanders? Bernie More Patriot Act Sanders? Bernie Let’s Keep Bombing Them Sanders?

    • We know who own main stream media. I learnt in the elder days every small town in America was obliged to have at least two papers or none in order to guarantee freedom of speech. The legislators could never have dreamt of the capitalist monopolies we do have all over the West. Capitalism and free enterprise are mutual exclusive.

    • they murdered Gaddafi for just thinking about giving gold coins to his people as currency https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuqZfaj34nc

    • Before they do that they need to cap the maximum wage or companies will just raise their prices and lay people off.

    • Yeah, and will all other wages be increased proportionately to reflect the loss of purchasing power/inflation that has now miraculously been determined to require a $15,00 per hour minimum wage ?

  • wow a deal from way back in 1913 and we still here look how far we carried that

  • They actually just made a damn gofundme account for that ass clown.

  • Hey kayne west. I need 100,000 dollars to help with my mom who has had three heart attacks and is a damn good mother who has raised four beautiful children and lost two of them. I also need my criminal justice education paid for as well as I have grown up in the system and kept myself clean and out of laws hands cause I ain’t no criminal. I want to help the troubled youth get back on there feet in these super harsh times so that more kids can be a better future then what the world is giving them today. I also would like money because my wife and I would like to have my vasectomy reversed so that my wife isn’t the last blood line in her family as they are a great family that has always helped anyone and everyone in need. We are super good people and are always looking to help others even in our poor state. We also have debt that isn’t 50 million in the hole so this pennies worth of help would help create more jobs and contribute to the human race. So if you can find it in your heart to help this Canadian family, you would have the greatest and ever lasting respect of me my family and the country I live in. I also have talents that would help and contribute to the human race as I come from a family that isn’t rich nor have money. There is potential from myself to help benefit the human race as well as I have come up with ideas and inventions but live in a place where we can not get anywhere it is super tough to ever get noticed for your accomplishments. If you can do this kayne you would be my hero. Thank you from a trusted fan!! please share my post as many times as possible until it reaches kayne west or mark Zuckerberg

    • Kanye can usually.be found in the downtown LA fish market. He goes there every Tuesday to have orgies.

    • Stfu fuck canada

  • Ok I’d like to touch up on my request from kayne or mark. I’m doing it to prove a point that only the super rich look out for each other and the little peons like us sorry maybe not all of us but u know What I’m saying might have a shot if they don’t give up. I wasn’t begging for money or anything I was simply doing wht I saw from someone that’s suppose to be an example to look up too. Again if billionaires can beg for millions y can’t a peon ask for help to help his fellow man and children of the future. Isn’t the kids and our future What matters or am I missing something. I have always made it on my own steam but we in an age where we can communicate with the rich and make things possible if we hit the right avenue. Someone out there has a connection and real connection that is sitting on a shit ton of money looking to help someone in deep need. Again I’m only trying to improve the quality of life for myself and children of the future and I’m being laughed @ like I walked into a bank naked begging for change. I will continue to keep copy and pasting my message and don’t care What anyone thinks and yes I will continue to do this on my own as I have been doing my whole life. my parents never helped me get What I have in life ever. I’m looking out for the human race that would rather laugh and point the finger back @ me and call me names or bash me. But I still would protect and save your lives and put my life on the line. Seriously wht is with people. I’m a straight up guy and solid to the max, I have heart and stand up for anyone that needs it and always look out for the little guy. Sorry if im ranting just needing to voice my opinion of What im seeing in the world today.

  • Now we know

    • “Had me killed” citation needed. And not from some tin foil hat enthusiasts.

  • What are we going to do about it. !?! ~tm 🙂

  • Maybe the media wouldn’t be pushing KW so much if people stopped paying attention to the guy. The society as a whole has made this problem, with it’s love and obsession with stars, celebrities, socialites, etc. ; the medias are simply taking advantage of it.

  • I’m surprised nobody is here blaming Obama for not doing anything about this before it happened

  • America is in debt because the true rulers, the richest 1%, want it that way. They buy the bonds. It’s to them that America is in debt. That means they own the government. That’s how they want it.

  • The only reason I know Kanye is allegedly in debt, is because of this meme.

  • The Government is in debt to the Reserve, NOT ME!

  • so annoying

  • That’s because no one in Washington DC cares if you’re in office today they should be bolted out of office on

  • Kanye is a fucking loser anyways, maybe if u didn’t spend the money as soon as it hit ur bank account on stupid bullshit that nobody could ever need or really want,u might not be in debt. Why don’t u ask Kim and her family to help u out? O,that’s right bc hey are as useless and broke as u, bc Kim is starting to get to old for anyome to give a shit, they already forgot about kourtney until she hooked up with beiber,the only reason klhoes name has been mentioned in the last yr is bc of Lamar, and Kylie and Kendall are desperately trying to be someone, but so far only one of them is, and she’s barely a victoia secret model, and nobody even knows the names of V.S. models, a few vapid girls do and maybe some pop mag reporters, other than that,Victoria secret models are just nameless half dressed women that guys are jerking off too…Hell everyone is already over talking about Bruce’s transformation into Caitlyn, that’s how useless that whole family is. None of them have done anything useful for anyone but themselves

    • Your not seeing the point…

    • No, I get the point, I just never miss an opportunity to say how much of a horrible influence those people are and how useless they actually are to real society.

    • Kanye’s genuis is too much for regular minds.

    • Hahaha, ok, I’m sure it takes a genius to talk about nothing and make money, to be part of that family and have a daughter brought into that horrible family that should never be allowed to procreate, and to be $53 million in debt, but I’m sure ,u knowing nothing about me, means that I have a small mind and don’t understand that mindless idiots who can’t think for themselves, are he only ones who respect Kanye and and his life decisions bc the media tells u it’s cool and u have to be up on shit like that that doesn’t matter or people will think ur a loser… U know if people like u cared as much and put as much energy towards real problems as u do with defending idiots, maybe the world would be a better place, but let’s defend Kanye and worry about how much money he owes, why don’t y’all start him a go fund me page? Or maybe instead, let’s worry about the trillions of dollars in debt the country is, bc that actually effects u and everyone u know…

  • Plus the $75,000 every American contributed to the bogus ‘war on terror’ looking for WMD (Words of Mass Deceit)

  • I’m not in debt & living on Social Security! How? It’s called living within your budget…

  • The imaginary debt.

  • Ok ,so you had a shopping list ,now you have a commissary request.

  • Yep, it’s the modern face of serfdom.

  • He need to go back to middle school and get accounting 101. If you gave him .58 cents he wouldn’t know how to handle it. Oh well.

  • Like only like a million millions 19 times but oh look at kannnnyeeee 😉

  • In debt to who? Space bandits?

  • I am ?

  • who cares if Kanye owes money?? Geez, the media is mentally challenged!!!

  • What is debt? Who’s gonna call that debt? What are they gonna do about it? Without US the global economy will collapse. Who buys all of China’s shit? Who is the largest importer of everyone’s shit? We crossed the rubicon of so called “debt” meaning jack shit a long time ago.

    • Yeah but there’s gonna be a point when China gets fed up with that shit and does something about it.

    • What exactly are they or Japan or whoever gonna do? Go Red Dawn on us? National debt is bullshit. Never understood why people thought it was or is important.

    • I agree debt is dead and we need a change from the monetary paridaigm, but trust that Russia and China can in fact destroy our economy and are planning to do so. With China making a new banking cartel and planning on converting back to the gold standard, the dollar will be nothing more then Pretty toilet paper.

    • Don’t believe till you see it, and then see it twice.

    • Our debt isnt just to China, its mostly to the Fed, a for profit, non-govt bank. And why would tbey call the debt? Its gaining interest by the second, and they dont need to call it in, they will continue to collect on it for generation after generation. To not be worried about it says that you feel it isnt a problem to keep paying taxes every year for the purpose of only paying the interest. This means eventually no spending by the govt for any service that the taxes are supposed to go to. And increased taxes forever infinitum. The its no big deal mentallity and who will do anything if we dont pay it is extremely small sighted… You are a part of the problem. Nothing comes for free

  • 58 million in debt what a dumb ass. media freak out ?

  • Incorrect. We don’t owe anything to the Federal Reserve.

    The biggest holder of US debt? The Social Security Administration.

    Basically, every time we go to war and don’t want to raise taxes to pay for it, politicians raid the retirement accounts of America’s workers, then just never pay the money back and bitch that the Social Security system is going bankrupt.

    No shit. I’d be going bankrupt if you kept borrowing money from me and never paid it back.

    • Every dollar in the US is a debt marker to the Fed. Sorry but you should do a little research.

  • Faidra N. Marazaki

  • Besides the opinion of government saying you owe a dept have you actually seen actual evidence it your dept?

  • Actually was the emergency bank act of 33, when the US went bankrupt.

  • well if he had talent he could get it back…..wait he needs talent

  • Untrue. Im not in debt. I dont support this corrupt ass government. They do not incur debt on my behalf. What they are doing isnt for the good of the people. They no longer represent the people. They and the bankers got themselves into this. They can get themselves out. Or they can fuck off. Pick one.

    Or if Chjhina would like to collect I would suggest we forcefully arrest all politicians, bankers, wall street execs, and the fed. Put them all on a ship to pay off their debt in slave camps in China. THEY WILL NOT BE MISSED!!!!

    • Well its a bit late already is it not? Your tax dollars are paying this debt and therefore you have the debt that wasn’t because of your ill management. Sad but true.. And funny enough America is still one of the biggest spenders on military budget… Must be profit in wars for someone… Because it sure hell isnt for the people or the “safety” of americans or to protect you from terrorist..

    • Those tax dollars were taken from my paycheck before I even saw them. By no choice of mine. Therefor anything done with those dollars is of no choice of mine. The debt they inncur has nothing to do with me. I am seperate from the system. I am a victim of a system that does not represent me. I stand apart from their non sense.

    • If only your beliefs were true…

    • Ignorance is bliss.

    • If this is ignorance I suggest you write the fucking government a check right now Bruce Lawrence for $58,000 since you believe YOU owe money on a debt THEY created. Go on put your money where your mouth is.

    • If you don’t support the corrupt government, then why is your page plastered with Bernie sanders propoganda?

    • Your support is not needed, they shall take your portion in taxes.

    • Hey that’s their plan for you! You think the pathetic people in DC are enough to be slaves to China? Nope every last one of us will be needed! Lol

  • Excuse me, Federal reserve is a private company, I signed nothing with them!

  • One isn’t like the other.

  • Isn’t this supposed to be 50 cent and 33 million?

  • Who is Kenye and why are you mentioning her ?

  • Why do I care if that gay fish is 58mil in debt?

  • Americans are not in Debt. Stop with the bullshit Fox News talking point lies.

  • Miriam Lira Francisco Lira

  • Shitty shoes, shitty clothes, shitty wife, shitty life. Man Kanye is living it up

  • It’s actually 5 times that or more, with unfunded liabilities and derivatives. We’ve been absolutely fucked lol

  • So what hes not the only one in debt.. he makes millions and hes in debt guess the lifestyle was too much for him. Oh well what good did he do with his money??? So who cares..

    • Obviously you don’t know Kanye he appears arrogant most of the time but it’s probably cause he sees the world for what it is but he has gave back a whole bunch not only that but is he a great success and inspiration to many

    • Didn’t know you were his best friend.. he’s a sell out like all of them in Hellywood….

    • Kanye only just did his best work very recently, and that’s just because his name was used to scam pharma-douch-bro!

  • We’re in debt to our county the second were born .. Birth certificate sin numbers it’s all debt on your head

  • http://www.usdebtclock.org/ look at the topic, total debt per citizen…

  • Who’s we I didn’t sign shit

  • Keep slaving away folks. The more money you make meansbthe gov’t can borrow more money to put us farther in debt.

  • Oh Kenye is debt ? Best news Ive heard all week

  • Happens when you do not pay people enough, so they have to borrow to pay bills!

  • Can’t his wife pay off his debt?

  • and you are surprised

  • who cares ! everybody will declare bankruptcy ! kanye will and does . watch and learn , the government loads us up with debt , we declare bankruptcy, two can play that game. see when and if they get their money.

  • i think they have been telling you that for awhile,your just not listening

  • The $53 million debt probably didn’t happen overnight. Too bad. I guess he will just have to get a job at McDonald’s if they’ll have the jerk. Maybe his wife will pay off his debt.

  • That’s what happens when you give your mother’s life just to be famous.

  • I thought it was closer to 135,000 dollars for every family, averaged.

  • Wow, what kind of self indulgence must one have to accumulate that kind of debt? Too bad there’s no such thing as debtors prisons any more.

  • not getting $58,000 out of me

  • we are way more indebt then that

  • So you are saying Kim Kardashian is getting a divorce.

  • If you are 58k in debt that’s your own fault

  • Wait a minute. Our National Debt is to the federal reserve?

  • Who gives a crap about some guy that had millions and blew it.In debt?Most all of us are.Live to pay bills.Work to pay bills.And if you have kids the money thing doesn’t stop!Kanye will live on.

  • What was the scheme?

  • good greif will someone just kill this piss poor peice of crap?

  • Trump can fix this.

  • 58 million is nothing when you’ve already sold your soul

  • The change of consciousness has started. People are starting to realize too much media is biased, divisive, placating, condescending distraction.

  • That means they can make you a 58,000 dollar slave.

  • How can anyone be in any debt when they never took out a loan?

  • $ 19 Trillion ? Don’t sweat the small stuff folks . We have , $ 127 Trillion , in unfunded liabilities that we will never be able to pay .

  • So, 1% takes the loan, steals the money, fills their own pockets, creates Great Depression, starts wars, kills people, creates inflation, enforces big taxes, lies to entire nation, goes to war again, steals more money, brainwashes people, creates huge debt AND THEN dares to call it OUR debt. Boys, this is not fair. If this is OUR debt, then how come WE must pay it back but you reap the benefits of using the money? So much for abolished slavery. Not only must people pay back something, that was intentionally created to enslave humanity to feed a self proclaimed ELITE, but they also have to blindly trust their new “masters”, pay for their own health insurance and obey ridiculous laws. What exactly did American people get from all this? The problem of the world is not the inability to feed the poor, but the disability of rich to get filled up! Happy is one who has enough, not one who has a lot.

  • I’m an American and I’m not in debt. Stop lying.

  • Lilly Steamblood, let me take a wild guess…uh, you’re not rich. What a shocker.

  • “WE” don’t owe anybody anything as far as the national debt……

  • Now I no why he wants to leave the U.S . but I still help him pack and if he needs air fare I’m sure we all can get you a ticket out first class !!!!!!!!

  • Ponzi= $ downfall

  • He made the deal with the devil.now time to pay.haha

  • fuck dat bitch

  • I read have age debt per household is about $70,000. Unsure what this amount includes. I own everything but my house.

    • It means that the govt will continue to raise taxes and provide less service until eventually all of your income goes to taxes, and you recieve nothing in return or our country can no longer do anything and we fall into monetary collapse.

    • Then when you cant pay your share of the taxes they will come for you for failure to pay taxes, and then they will attempt to claim what it is that you think you own, as payment.

    • Everything points our country headed in the direction you just described. Yeaaaa!

  • Silly black duck was given a big pond to swim in and forgot how to float so he sank to the bottom where nobody gave a fuck

  • I find comfort knowing Kanye is in debt. POS doesn’t deserve any attention or praise for his sorry excuse for hip hop

  • Even if there is a media black out about it that really is irrelevant because its something that we all know and it wouldnt matter if we call it out loud >>;

    What total piece of misinformation about BERNIE! He gutted the damned bill with his amendment, so that it’s chief purpose would be destroyed, then he had the GALL to run around saying he voted “for” the bill. The fact that you would list Bernie as a “supporter” of the bill, shows me that you have no IDEA what that SNAKE is about and have bought into his lies. Bernie’s desperate move to defend, protect, and cover for the Federal Reserve bank is nothing short of TREASON! How dare anyone LIE and say that snake supported the bill to END our complete slavery to that vile central bank! It’s a LIE dam it. STOP spreading this LIE.
