The Senate has passed an "audit the Fed" bill by 96 to 0, a major breakthrough for a cause associated with Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) that nevertheless falls short of the comprehensive audit Paul favors. Paul's preferred version has passed the House. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) agreed to some limits on the audit to get the bill to pass the Senate.
UPDATE: The Vitter Amendment, which would have allowed Paulian audits of the Fed going forward, was defeated 37-62. The vote breakdown is interesting.
