Congressman Randy Neugebauer Argues Against Obamacare and President Actions [Audio]

Congressman Randy Neugebauer

Monday on Lubbock’s First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer described his frustrations with President Obama, Obamacare, and the government shutdown.

Neugebauer noted his annoyance at the media coverage of issues he deemed trivial in relation to the government shutdown, such as the shutdown of national parks. He said the drama created by the media is being used to “sidetrack the American people.” He called for the Senate and the President to pay attention and address the more prominent issue at hand.

Now that parts of the Affordable Care Act have been put into action, Neugebauer says they are finding more components that are “unworkable.” He reiterated that it is not a healthcare policy that the American people want. He also observed that many of promises made for the policy were not kept, including keeping current insurance and lower rates. Some reformations proposed by the House were related to programs that automatically placed people into food stamp programs, as well as payment to veterans and military personnel. Neugebauer said some focus “should be about making sure that we keep our promises to the men and women that have defended our country.”

Neugebauer repeatedly noted President Obama’s refusal to compromise or to address these issues with leadership. He reflected on the formation of the legal system in the U.S. that worked to establish a balance of power. One he says the President is disregarding by refusing to work with the House on making reformations to Obamacare or the approaching debt ceiling.
