Reality Check: 25 years of asking to audit the Fed, why is Sen. Harry Reid now saying "no"?

An historic vote in the U.S. House yesterday as members of Congress voted to approve a bill that would allow the Federal Reserve to be audited.

Ben has a look at why it would be a very strange move for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to prevent the bill from coming to a vote in Reality Check.
