Last week, it was announced that the U.S. would be providing aid to the Syrian rebels, after it was revealed that the Syrian government had been using chemical weapons on their own people. Neugebauer said that the entire Syria situation is a :”diplomatic mess,” and that he would prefer to see the U.S. actually work with the people of Syria instead of just tossing out guns to the rebels.

“One of the things I think we should be doing is trying to coalesce with people in the region. And more importantly, I think we should be working with Russia to get them to quit furnishing Assad with these arms because, basically, they’re just prolonging this civil war.”

Neugebauer also said that he wasn’t surprised that Russia is choosing to back the Syrian government, adding that the country would take any chance it got to disagree with America. He went on to say that it seems many countries just aren’t taking America as seriously as they used to.

Neugebauer also discussed the latest progress with the Farm Bill. He said this will be a big week for the bill as the House is set to vote on it this week. However, Neugebauer added that there are still plenty of disagreements on the bill, especially concerning food stamp reform, crop insurance and representative just being unfamiliar with farm policy.
