As of this morning, the Senate has not yet come up with a budget plan. Neugebauer said the House needs to see this budget plan before they can start discussing the debt ceiling issue. He also mentioned that a bill is in the works that could prevent the Senate from getting paid if they do not come up with a budget. Neugebauer said it was ridiculous that the Senate has not developed a budget yet, particularly since he believes the Senate is partially responsible for the huge deficit facing the country,.

“People say “Well then, how did we did get to owing $16.4 trillion?” Well how we got here is the Senate has not been a participant in efforts to try to reduce these monstrous deficits. They haven’t even passed a budget. Families have to have budgets, businesses have to have budgets, and we think the country needs a budget, particularly when we’re on track to run another over trillion dollar deficit again this year.”

Neugebauer also spoke about the importance of a balanced budget, as well as his observations of today’s presidential inauguration.

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