Congressman Randy Neugebauer Discusses Obamacare Deadline And Developing Situation With Ukraine [AUDIO]
On Monday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer spoke with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about the latest goings on in Washington.
Yesterday was the last day to sign up for Obamacare, and there were numerous reports of problems with the site and error messages for people who try to sign up. Neugebauer commented that Obamacare continues to be one of the biggest problems for the administration, and added that while the country's health care system does need some reform, Obamacare is definitely not the answer.
“What's troubling is that we really do need to reform our health care system, and that's certainly something the Republicans have supported...But the problem is that [Obamacare] is really doing a lot of damage to the whole health care infrastructure and you're even beginning to hear doctors saying, "I’m not sure whether or not I'm going to continue practicing medicine for an extended period of time." And so the question I have down the road is even though you may have health insurance, will you have access to health care in this country?"
Neugebauer added that despite some states having no problems with the program, the success of Obamacare can only be determined by looking at the country as a whole, not just a handful of select states.
Neugebauer also shared his thoughts on the developing situation with Ukraine and Russia. He said that while the Crimea issue has more or less been resolved, the problem now is dealing with Russia's intimidation of Ukraine by placing troops around their borders.
