Fox Business Talks with Small-Business Owner Who Had Assets Seized

Bipartisan Members of Congress Urge Administration to Return Cash to Maryland Farmer, Others Aggrieved
August 14, 2015 — Blog   

This week, a bipartisan group of lawmakers, led by Ways and Means Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Peter Roskam (R-IL), is urging the administration to return assets seized from small business owners under an abusive policy that has since been abandoned. A subcommittee hearing earlier this year examined how the administration was taking money from the bank accounts of small business owners, without due process, simply because of the way they were depositing their cash. Though the practice has been stopped in response to this effective oversight, the administration has not returned all the money to those who were affected. One of those people is Randy Sowers, a Maryland dairy farmer, and he spoke yesterday with Fox Business Network’s Neil Cavuto. You can hear Mr. Sowers’ story in his own words below.
