After enacting legislation that is exacerbating huge and rising fiscal deficits, I wonder what grounds does Congress have a right to complain about the solvency of the Fed?

The same grounds that are cited for passing huge tax cuts, then declaring the only way to address the resulting deficit is to cut Social Security and Medicare.
