Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., on Wednesday reiterated his longstanding call for an audit of the Federal Reserve in an all-capital-letters tweet that echoed similar concerns by President Donald Trump.
"IT SHOULD BE GETTING AUDITED," the second-term senator said in his post, which included a Trump all-caps tweet challenging Fed monetary policies.
Paul, 56, has long called for the Fed to be audited, and in January reintroduced legislation to have the General Accounting Office examine the central bank.
In 2016, the Senate passed Paul's bill — and the House has twice approved the legislation, but the White House and the Fed have opposed any audit.
Rand Paul's father, former Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, who later became a Libertarian, first proposed legislation in 1999 to eliminate the Fed and later to audit the agency after the 2008 banking crisis. The bills have stalled in Congress.
