Congressman Randy Neugebauer Discussed Farm Bill [Audio]

Neugebauer, Facebook

Monday on Lubbock’s First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer offered his thoughts on progress made in Farm Bill discussions, the Kids First Research Act, and the Affordable Care Act.

Neugebauer noted the importance of reaching an agreement before the continuing resolution deadline. He observed that much of what drives the difficulty in coming to an agreement is “This age-old struggle between Republicans and Democrats… Democrats would like to raise taxes, we’d like to continue to cut spending.” He noted that there must be discussion on both sides of the fence about mandatory spending reform, but “Democrats want to find some additional revenue to offset these sequester cuts.”

Neugebauer also touched on the Kids First Research Act, to be voted on this week. The act will reallocate funds originally set aside,as a result of the check off function, for presidential candidates. The funds would instead be given to the National Science Foundation for pediatric research initiatives.

Neugebauer concluded with a reiteration of the negative effects of the Affordable Care Act.
