Watch Harry Reid Ponder a Federal Reserve Audit/CIA Merger

Supporters of Rep. Ron Paul are re-upping this 1995 video of Harry Reid -- then a second-term senator -- boasting of his support for a Federal Reserve audit. "I think it would be interesting to know about the Federal Reserve," he says. "I think we should audit the Federal Reserve. It's taxpayer's money that's being used there."

Paul fans should keep watching up through the part where Reid wonders whether the CIA and Federal Reserve should merge, for secrecy's sake -- classic skeleton-dry Reid humor.
