Congressman Randy Neugebauer Expects Supreme Court to Strike Down Part of Obamacare [AUDIO]
On Monday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer talked with Chad Hasty and Rex Andrew about the latest issues taking place in Washington.
Right now in Washington, all eyes are on the Supreme Court's upcoming ruling on Obamacare. Neugebauer expects that the Supreme Court will strike down at least a portion of the bill, and that it would be difficult for Obama to try and rebuke the court's decision.
"Well, we know [Obama will] try something...it's not unpreceidented for him to think he is the decider. But right after a Supreme Court ruling, it's going to be a little bit tough for him to be on any kind of stable ground to try and do some kind of an executive order here to go around the Supreme Court. That would be a pretty big order."
Neugebauer also gave an update on the Farm Bill. The Senate passed their version of the Farm Bill on Thursday, and now the House will be working on theirs. Neugebauer said that, overall he is pleased with the Senate's bill and he is glad to see that crop insurance is included on the bill. However, he still says the farm bill is more food stamps that agriculture, and that the food stamp program as a whole is in "dire need" of reform.
