Still think there’s a difference between Democrats and Republicans?

Still think Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are for the “little guy”?

Donald Trump has received the least amount of money from Wall Street and, therefore, is the least beholding to Goldman Sachs, et al.

On January 12, 2016, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act — a bill that would have given Congress the authority to audit the Federal Reserve — fell 7 votes shy of clearing the 60-vote threshold needed to advance out of the chamber. The vote was 53-44.

The 44 senators who voted “No” are all Democrats.

Spearheaded by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), the bill, if passed, would have expanded oversight over the central bank and, for the first time, empowered the Government Accountability Office to audit the Federal Reserve.

This was how the 2016 presidential candidates who are senators voted (source: The Daily Signal):

  • Rand Paul (R-KY), Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) voted “Yes”.
  • Ted Cruz (R-TX) initially said he would vote “Yes,” but ended up not voting.
