Jordan on IRS: Agency Charged with Enforcing Obamacare Targeted Groups Who Opposed It


In his opening statements at today’s House Oversight Committee hearing, Representative Jim Jordan (R., Ohio) was highly skeptical that the IRS’s targeting was the work of “two rogue agents” as the White House claims. He pointed out that the timing of the targeting coincided with the passage of the president’s health-care law.

“This administration, this agency, the very agency charged with enforcing Obamacare systematically targeted groups that came into existence because they opposed Obamacare,” Jordan said. “And they started the targeting the very month — March 2010 — that Obamacare came into law expects us to believe it is the work of ‘two rogue agents.’”
