Again, another waste of our money and representatives' time. The Fed is audited (follow he links provided or go to the website and read up on it yourself). Leave the Fed alone and let them do their job. The counter arguments by "free market" proponents shows their ignorance of economics and their hypocrisy. The "dot-com" bubble and the financial crisis of 2007 (Great Recession) was caused by more free market. If it wasn't for the Fed, these crashes would have been worse. Blaming the Fed for bubbles is a distraction.
