As the situation in Syria and the Middle East region continues to intensify, it seems everyone is looking to America to step in and do something about it. But Neugebauer said that the situation there is far too complex for just America to handle, and that the Middle East region as a whole needs to respond as well. He went on to say that America is not, and should not, be acting at the world’s police.

“I think one of the things we have embarked into is that we’ve almost become…the world’s police force in that if there is a problem, you call the U.S. to do that. I’m not sure that one, we can afford to do that, nor secondly, is that in our best interest. There are threats around the world that do have implications on our national security, and in those areas, I think we still have to have a presence. I think the question now is what should our presence be and what is our response?”

Neuegbauer also gave an update on the progress of the Farm Bill. He said that both the House and Senate versions are expected to go into committee in May, and that right now, the chances of enacting a new Farm Bill before the current bill expires in September look pretty good.

Neugebauer also discussed the latest with Obamacare, including talk of certain members of the Obama administration getting exempted from Obamacare. Neugebauer commented that, instead of offering exemptions, Obamacare should just be repealed altogether.

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