Neugebauer, Facebook

Monday on Lubbock’s First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer talked about the efforts to decide on a Farm Bill and Budget agreement, along with the unemployment benefits, and the Affordable Care Act.

He said that farmers are hoping for progress so they can begin planning for the 2014 crop. Farm Bill and a provision for unemployment benefits together. He said the idea is that the savings of the Farm Bill can make up for the costs of extending the benefits. Neugebauer believes combining the issues is bad policy and should not be placed together for voting. “The unemployment benefits is a different issue and we need to take that issue and address it separately.”

Neugebauer noted the progress toward approving a budget. He discussed the necessity of forming a bill that can be approved by the January 15 deadline. He also discussed the negative effects of the Affordable Care Act and how that might affect the November elections.
