A new style $100 bill will enter circulation on October 8th, 2013. The new note was unveiled in 2010 and includes a number of new security features, including a blue 3D security ribbon and a disappearing Liberty Bell inside an orange inkwell that is more difficult for counterfeiters to replicate.
The Federal Reserve was created with the Federal Reserve Act, passed by Congress on December 23, 1913, immediately before the legislators headed home for Christmas…much the way ObamaCare was. Between then and now, the Federal Reserve expanded significantly. The Federal Reserve backs the currency the the United States Department of the Treasury creates the currency. The Federal Reserve’s monetary policies don’t have to be approved by Congress or by the President of the United States. Its Board of Governors operates independently of the government.
How strange – a nation that doesn’t control it’s own money.
