Congressman Randy Neugebauer talks about Lois Lerner, the VA, and Iraq [AUDIO]

Congressman Randy Neugebauer

Today on Lubbock’s First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer talked with Tom and Laura about the Veterans Administration, the recent controversy surrounding Lois Lerner, and the situation in Iraq.

Over the last few years, a number of medical doctors have become members of Congress. One benefit of these members, such as Congressman Michael Burgess, is their medical knowledge and expertise. There are hopes that Congresspeople with medical backgrounds could investigate the VA. However, in addition to his assistance in understanding events such as the VA Crisis, Congressman Burgess has been a leader in finding an alternative to Obama-care.

Although Lois Lerner claims to have lost emails between herself and the IRS, the case really “calls for continued investigation,” according to Congressman Neugebauer. “Almost all the servers, the IRS server and her email, would have been going through a government system” which are “generally all backed up, and so even though somebody’s laptop crashes or something like that, those emails are somewhere else,” the Congressman said. The Department of Justice will likely be investigating in the near future.

Talking on Iraq, Congressman Neugebauer explained that Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds are all trying to secure land, and have certainly put stress on the government of Iraq. The next step is really up to “the Iraqi Government to determine whether they can secure the peace that was fought so hard for by our young men and women,” but “the Iraqi Prime Minister said he really didn’t want the U.S. to intervene here”. Regardless, 100 U.S. Marines will be sent to defend the American Embassy in Iraq.
