Congressman Randy Neugebauer Discusses Re-Election Bid For 19th Congressional District [AUDIO]
On the Thursday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Congressman Randy Neugebauer talked with Chad Hasty about his re-election campaign.
Neuegebuer, who is currently representing the 19th Congressional district of Texas, said that he would continue to be a strong conservative fighter is re-elected in 2014. However, he also acknowledged that he had received criticism for not being active enough in Washington and not passing a lot of legislation. Neugebauer responded by saying he was a "work horse," not a "show horse," and that his intention in office was to shrink big government and not to expand it with more legislation.
"One of the reasons I came to Congress was I felt like they were passing too many laws up here. And so, I didn't come up here to expand government; I came up here to shrink government. Because, every time we pass a law up here or pass a bill, somebody's individual liberties and freedoms are infringed upon. So, I didn't come up here to see how many bills I could pass while I was in Congress."
Neugebauer said that, if re-elected, his focus would be on repealing Obamacare, as well as working towards fiscal conservatism and working on improving the Farm Bill. He also shared his thoughts on unemployment, saying that instead of focusing on unemployment benefits, Congress should really be focusing on creating jobs.
