In an interview with Kitco Monday, Rand Paul announced he is going to try to have Bernie Sanders co-sponsor the The Federal Reserve Transparency Act in the Senate.
Senator Paul states, “In January, I did get a vote and we got a majority, 53 senators voted for it, but as you know, in the Senate, a lot of the times it takes 60. So, we’re about 7 votes short of actually getting it passed.”
Paul goes on by saying he needs to get more Democrats to vote in favor of the bill, “I asked Bernie Sanders for years to help me with it, and he really was never a co-sponsor. In the end he voted for it. I’ve got to convince him to co-sponsor it, and if he would go out and get five or six Democrats, we might be able to get across the finish line.”
Dr. Paul is then asked about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and Donald Trump.
