Congressman Jim Jordan was in town Monday morning to talk with local Lima business owners on federal issues that could impact their operations.
A little over two dozen local business owners were in attendance to speak with the Congressman on an array of topics ranging from health insurance tax, to the possibility of online sales tax. Many local business owners were concerned about what the future of Obamacare could mean for their bottom line and affording to pay for insurance under the new regulations.
Congressman Jordan also touched on the current IRS scandal in Washington. Jordan says they started asking the IRS over a year ago to look into this and they claimed there was no problem, when Jordan says in fact there was.
Jordan says it's flat out wrong and as bad as it can be, when your government is targeting you for your political beliefs. So in the coming days they will be holding several hearings in the U.S. Congress to get to the bottom of the issue.
