Jordan: truck services often U.S. communities' only link...


The issue doesn't generate many headlines, but proposed changes in trucking's Hours-of-Service regulations have stirred hot controversy in the industry.When the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held a hearing on the economic impact of the changes, the title alone hinted at some of the issues involved: "The Price of Uncertainty: How Much Could DOT's Proposed Billion Dollar Service Rule Cost Consumers This Holiday Season?"The Hours-of-Service regulations set limits for when and how long commercial motor vehicle operators may drive. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety ...


Jordan Responds to the Super Committee's Lack of Agreement


Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Urbana), Chairman of the House Republican Study Committee, offered the following statement after the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction failed to come to agreement, triggering $1.2 trillion of automatic spending cuts over a ten year period beginning in 2013. “Throughout the year, the Republican Study Committee has offered solutions to address the debt crisis, including the Cut, Cap and Balance plan that passed the House with bipartisan support. But instead of a solution, Washington wanted a deal, and thus the Super Committee was created.”“I want ...


Jordan chides Obama savings plan as deficit relocation


If you cut out cigarettes and coffee but used the money to pay for a vacation, would you really be saving money? What if you used the savings to pay for upcoming veterinary bills for your dog? Or to pay for your child’s school supplies?What if this still left you deeply in debt?These questions, though hypothetical, apply to the federal government. President Obama announced on Nov. 9 that he was ordering federal departments and agencies to cut wasteful spending on cell phones, promotional plaques and other items by $4 billion. In other words, the federal government was going to save $4 ...

Jim Jordan: Seven of America’s 10 wealthiest counties are in the Washington, D.C., area.
The Truth-o-Meter says: True | Jim Jordan says seven of the nation's 10 wealthiest counties are in the Greater Washington area Conservative Ohio Republican Jim Jordan has long preached the need to get government spending under control. In 2011, the congressman from Champaign County voted against raising the nation’s debt ceiling, and he recently opposed a compromise to keep the nation from plunging off a "fiscal cliff" because he felt it delayed needed spending cuts. On Jan. 6, Jordan brought his critique of out-of-control government spending to Fox News Sunday, where he compared the federal government to an 18-year-old with a maxed out credit card and argued that Washington was the only winner in the "fiscal ... >> More
Jim Jordan: Says Obama "exempted Congress and their staff from the full effect of the (health care) law."
The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly False | Jim Jordan claims Obama health care decision "exempted Congress and their staff from the full effect of the law" The U.S. Office of Personnel Management issued a rule on Aug. 7 that said members of Congress and their staffers "will continue to have an employer contribution toward their health insurance premiums" when they buy insurance through exchanges set up under the soon-to-be implemented Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. That greatly upset some foes of the law. Among them was Rep. Jim Jordan, a Republican from Champaign County in west-central Ohio, who wants the law repealed.  He issued an Aug. 8 news release titled "Jordan Responds to President Obama’s Latest Healthcare Exemptions,"  which protested "special treatment of Congressional staff under ... >> More
Jim Jordan: "Federal, state and local governments have subsidized the production of the Volt to the tune of estimates between $50,000 and $250,000 per vehicle sold."
The Truth-o-Meter says: Half-True | Jim Jordan says subsidy for the Volt averages out to as much as $250,000 a car Political charges were in the air at a Jan. 25, 2012, congressional hearing on the Chevrolet Volt chaired by Republican Rep. Jim Jordan, a staunch critic of the Obama administration’s intervention in the General Motors bankruptcy. Jordan, from Ohio’s Champaign County, said he called the hearing to explore whether the government’s involvement in General Motors swayed how the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration informed consumers about crash tests that caused fires in the hybrid electric vehicles’ batteries. At the hearing, his committee released a report titled: "Government Motors: A Preliminary Report on the Effects of ... >> More
Jim Jordan: The national debt is "larger than our entire annual economy."
The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly True | Rep. Jim Jordan says the national debt is “larger than our entire annual economy.” Budget-cutting is a favorite theme for Champaign County Rep. Jim Jordan, a former Republican Study Committee chairman with the most conservative voting record of any Ohio Congress member. Jordan has frequently opined that the controversial sequester budget cuts implemented on March 1 are a positive step toward reining in out-of-control government spending. On March 19, the House Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs, Stimulus Oversight and Government Spending that Jordan chairs held a hearing on how several government departments decided where to make cuts required by the sequester. At ... >> More
