Congressman Randy Neugebauer Discusses Food Stamp Reform and Continued Resolution [AUDIO]

randy.house.gov

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.

Last week, the House passed a bill to restrict spending on the food stamps program. Neugebauer voted in favor of the bill and said he was pleased to see so many reforms to the program, such as fraud prevention and getting able-bodied people back in the work force. He added that none of these reforms would adversely affect those who truly need food stamps, and that he aims to bring food stamps back to being a temporary program like it was intended to be.

Neugebauer also discussed the upcoming vote on the continuing resolution, which would allow the government to continue to spend money. He said that he was frustrated with the President’s insistence on spending money, particularly since it’s money we don’t have. He added that the government needs to focus more on living within its means, as many families across the nation are now forced to do.

“I think that’s what’s so frustrating to me about the President. He ignores the real issue. He’s always talking about spending, and everybody likes to spend. But we’re spending money we don’t have. What the President doesn’t bring to the table is how we’re going to fund this spending that he wants to continue.”
