A vote on Congressman Ron Paul's HR 459 has been scheduled for July 24.
This vote will be taken under a suspension of the rules, which means (a) no amendments and (b) 2/3s majority needed to pass.
John Carney has been brushing off constituent letters and emails asking him to support this bill. The staffer he had write back to me included a very condescending "history"of the Federal Reserve, and the promise that he would "consider" my views "if" the bill came to a vote.
That's Newspeak for "I don't plan to support it."
Please bombard Representative Carney's office with emails and calls to (202) 225-4165 demanding that he vote in favor of HR 459.
If he does, we'll give him the appropriate credit; and he'll deserve it, because this is a critical piece of legislation.
If he doesn't, that will be one more issue for Scott Gesty, Libertarian candidate for US House in Delaware, to beat him over the head with.
