Congress is coming back in session this week, and Neugebauer says there are plenty of issues that need to be addressed, such as the Farm Bill.  However, Neugebauer expects that a lot of the business Congress has will not be addressed until after the election cycle has ended.

“It’s unfortunate that we’re going to leave so much on the table. We still don’t have a Farm Bill, we’ve still got this huge fiscal cliff coming with tax increases, with a sequester; there’s just a lot of things that we’re punting until after the election.”

Neugebauer said he hopes  that the Farm Bill will be worked out before the elections begin. According to Neugebauer, there is talk of the current bill being extended for another year.

Neugebauer also talked about supporting a fair tax or flat tax. He said that Republicans are starting to talk seriously about tax reform, saying that the current policy “picks winners and losers.” Neugebauer also talked about last week’s Democratic National Convention,  and answered listener’s questions on retirement accounts, population growth in Texas, and Obamacare.

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