Budget talks are starting to come together in Washington this week, and President Barack Obama has said he is willing to work with Republicans. However, Neugebauer said that, while he’d like to be optimistic, he has to wonder just how serious the President is about these talks. After all, it’s not the first time Obama has claimed he was willing to work with Republicans.

“We’ve been down this road before where the President says he wants to work together. But working together was if we would agree with the President. If we didn’t agree with the President, we weren’t going to work together. So, I want to be optimistic. We need to work some things out.”

Neugebauer also talked about the government giving educational benefits to illegal immigrants. He said that situations like these are exactly the reason the government needs to go through the budget and find faulty programs like these, as opposed to across-the-board cuts.

You can listen to Congressman Randy Neugebauer Mondays at 7:35 during Lubbock’s First News on NewsTalk 790 KFYO.
