Randy Neugebauer Talks the Farm Bill, NSA Spying, and Immigration on the Chad Hasty Show [AUDIO]
U.S. Representative Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) was a guest on the Chad Hasty Show Thursday on KFYO to talk about the Farm Bill that was recently passed and the controversial domestic spying on U.S. citizens.
The U.S. Senate passed their version of the Farm Bill with both Senators from Texas, John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, voting against the bill.
Neeguebauer addressed reasons why he's for the House version of the bill.
"The senate version was very weak on any real reforms. That's the reason the House version is a much better," Neugebauer said. "The senate version had only $23 billion for savings with the House version with $40 billion in savings."
The Lubbock Congressman also addressed the NSA controversy of the surveillance on U.S. Citizens and their mobile phones.
"I had a classified briefing on this program on where we are and what they are doing. This is a delicate balance keeping the American people safe, which is one of the primary focuses of our government and protecting the democracy, but also making sure we're protecting the individual liberties of the American people."
Neugebauer also talked about the so called "Gang of 8" Immigration bill in the Senate pushed by Florida Republican Marco Rubio.
"I think it has a long road ahead of it. Obviously the Senate has decided to proceed and debate on it... The current version of the senate would be difficult for me to support."
