It was recently revealed that the IRS has been targeting conservative and tea party groups for extra scrutiny as early as 2010. This contradicts the public statements made by the IRS last year when they denied targeting these groups. Neugebauer said that people have suspected this sort of behavior from the IRS for a while now, but the fact that they still covered it all up and lied to the American public is “unacceptable.”

“This is what the American people suspect is going on into their country. And then when they find out that is really is [happening], it’s unacceptable. We certainly need to get to the bottom of this. When this story manifested itself over the weekend, more questions than answers have been available.”

Neugebauer also discussed the latest developments with the Farm Bill. The Agriculture Commission will start drawing up the bill on Wednesday, and while Neugebauer commented that the new bill looks a lot like the old bill, he added that there are over 100 new reforms, and the House version of the bill should save an estimated $40 billion. He also took listener questions concerning gun bills and media coverage of the IRS fraud.

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