Reps. Ron Paul, R-Lake Jackson, and Alan Grayson, D-Fla., may not agree on a whole lot politically. But they seem to share a formidable distaste for the Federal Reserve.
The two teamed up to write a proposal that would increase oversight of the Fed and possibly force an audit of the nation's central bank. And to the surprise of some, the amendment passed last week. ...
The duo -- perhaps someone will create a great comic book out of this -- isn't done yet, though. The House Financial Services Committee, led by Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., is expected to tackle the Paul/Grayson amendment and possibly weaken some of the oversight powers, according to Congressional Quarterly.
But wait! Ron Paul is wearing the wrong-colored jersey!
