Congressman Jim Jordan discusses the good (trends in the right direction, including actions by the House Freedom Caucus), the bad (court decisions and the Left’s assault on the Rule of Law and traditions), and the future: changes to the broken tax code, healthcare, and the 79 different means-tested programs in the federal welfare system.

Congressman Jordan’s remarks were recorded at the December Conservative Women’s Network, a monthly event in Washington DC co-sponsored by the Luce Institute and the Heritage Foundation, continuing its tradition of inviting a special gentleman speaker for its annual December luncheon.

Representative Jordan serves on the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, where he is chairman of the Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Job Creation and Regulatory Affairs. He is a great advocate for taxpayers through his work on spending issues and efforts to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse in the federal government.

He served as chairman of the House Republican Study Committee, the largest caucus of conservatives. He helped found the House Freedom Caucus and today serves as its first chairman.
