Congressman Randy Neugebauer Discusses Farm Bill and IRS Scandal [AUDIO]
On Monday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer talked with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about the latest going on in Washington.
The long-awaited Farm Bill is finally starting to come to fruition. The bill made it out of committee on Friday and will now be making it's way to the Senate. The House is expected to take up the bill sometime in June. Neugebauer said now that the bill has been written up, the focus will turn to making amendments to the bill.
Neugebauer also gave his thoughts on the latest with the IRS scandal and other scandals affecting the administration. He commented that a lot of actions taken by the Obama administration have been act first, apologize for it later, and that the whole IRS affair has been very bizarre and almost "Gestapo-like" in their intrusiveness of conservative groups.
"[These conservative groups] were profiled. There's no question about that. [The IRS] even admitted they had profiled those groups, but they said it was just a way of grouping those different agencies together, so that they would treat them consistently. But when we look back, they were asking them for their donor list, they were asking about what do their ember pray about. This is bizarre. This is Gestapo-type government."
He added that the investigation is far from over, and that there are sure to be more "surprises" to be revealed before it's all over. Neugebauer also talked about his trip to Lubbock last weekend to speak at Saturday's commencement ceremony at Texas Tech University.
