Hall of Shame on Audit the Fed Vote Includes Berry and Synder

There is a lot of duplicity in politics. Here we see two guys who are going out, and thus won't have to answer at the ballot box for their votes, pull a fast one. After co-sponsoring Ron Paul's "Audit the Fed" bill, enough co-sponsors switched their votes to keep that audit out of the final "finance reform" bill. So why did they pull a Blanche Lincoln card check move and vote against an idea that they co-sponsored shortly before hand? Duplicity is a reasonable explanation. Certainly it can't be because the average voter does not want the Federal Reserve to have a true and complete audit.

Switched to 'Nay' after co-sponsoring H.R.1207

Are they both retiring after this session?

They must have co-sponsored it when they thought they might try another shot at re-election.

I could be wrong, but I think it's SNYder, not SYNder.
