Congressman Randy Neugebauer Talks Trayvon Martin Shoting and Farm Bill on Lubbock’s First News [AUDIO]
On Monday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer spoke with Chad and Rex about all the latest issues coming out of Washington.
Concerning the Trayvon Martin shooting, Neugebauer said that politicians and law makers should not be getting involved, and that they should just let the law enforcement officials handle the case.
"We've got plenty of work to do in Congress. We don't need to be telling the law enforcement people in Florida what they should and should not be doing. We've got some pretty heady stuff going on in Washington that deserves my colleagues' attention."
Neugebauer said that, while it is not a violation of any ethics code in Congress, it was not the best idea for those in Congress to speak out against the case.
Neugebauer also talked about the Farm Bill and the field hearings taking place across the county, where farmers and agriculture producers can interact with the member of the Farm Bill committee. He said that farmers have already suffered huge cuts in the bill to make way for food stamps, and that he would prefer to see the food stamps separated from the Farm Bill.
Neugebauer also talked about the GOP Primary, saying that the race appears to be over now and that he would support Mitt Romney if he were chosen as the Republican candidate.
