When asked about the Budget Control Act, Neugebauer said that he voted against it. He sees the act as little more than “kicking the can down the road,” and that all it did was relegate Congressional duties to one super committee, and that was a bad idea. He added that the cuts made by the act had no significant effect on reducing the budget.

It’s really not the right way to do business for Congress to relegate to this group of people to make that decision. They were unable to do that, so we’re really back where we were back in 2011, and we’re going to have to make some decisions.

Neugebauer said that if nothing is done by this super committee, the budget cuts will automatically go into effect on January 1st, 2013, and that national defense in particular would take a huge hit if these cute were made.

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