The congressional record from Dec 23 1913, the day the US congress allowed the creation of the federal reserve. The entire transcript from Dec 23. You have heard about it now you can read it yourself.

Pg 1468 - The Vice President "Forty-eight Senators have answered to the role call. There is a quorum present"

pg 1476 Mr. Newlands "It seems to me just as absurd to make these reserve banks banks of profit as it would be to expect profit from our fire department ..."
