Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) has introduced a bill that would abolish the Federal Reserve System, which has served as the nation’s central banking system since its creation more than 110 years ago.

HR 8421, the Federal Reserve Board Repeal Act, abolishes the Federal Reserve System and the Board of Governors of its banks. It would also repeal the Federal Reserve Act, the 1913 law that created the Federal Reserve System.

Announcing the move, Massey said Americans would be better off without the Fed and blamed the Fed for rapid inflation and the devaluation of the dollar.
