Congressman Jim Jordan, R-Urbana, discussed health care, education and working with Democrats during a roundtable discussion held for Wapakoneta Chamber of Commerce members at the Eagles Ballroom on Monday.
During the discussion, Jordan spoke extensively about health care reform, saying the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is the biggest impediment to growing businesses.
“With each passing day we find out more and more how bad this thing is,” Jordan said. “It’s a complete mess and we need a whole different approach on health care policy.”
Jordan said he hopes Republicans will bring an alternative health care bill to the House this summer. The bill will encourage health savings accounts, association health plans and maximizing freedom of choice by allowing individuals to choose state-based insurance, even if it is from another state.
