Americans have a right to financial privacy. We do not need a #CBDC that can track your purchases like China does with their Digital Yuan. The authority rests with Congress, not unelected bureaucrats, to create and implement a CBDC. And that’s non-partisan.

I understand why Americans are concerned about CBDCs and the potential for a Big-Brother-like surveillance state. I share these concerns. It is a priority of mine to make sure the federal government cannot and does not proceed with issuing a CBDC without Congressional approval.

For years, @RepBillFoster and I have advocated for the careful, thoughtful approach in designing a CBDC. While I am pleased to read Federal Reserve’s new report, I am disappointed it was released months behind schedule. It is important to not delay the work on CBDCs any further.
