Blue America's Alan Grayson and Florida's new rising star just keeps coming. And he hits on an important problem for our government. Do you get this? Because I really don't get this. The Federal Reserve has lent out TRILLIONS of dollars to private banks, and is keeping the recipients and the amounts a total secret. In an e-mail I received:

In a hearing yesterday, Congressman Alan Grayson asked

the Inspector General of the Federal Reserve whether she's keeping

track of the money. What money, she pretty much asks. You really have

to see this to believe it. I guess literally no one in government is overseeing what the Federal Reserve is doing with OUR money.

And it's no shock that Republicans are targeting Grayson as their public enemy # 1. He puts fear into their hearts and well he should.

Can you help us out?
