Randy's Roundup: International Outlook

2014/07/22

International Outlook This past week, we’ve all seen the international unrest in the news.  Violence between Israel and Hamas is flaring up in Gaza, and questions about the Malaysian Airlines flight shot down in Ukraine remain unanswered.  I want you to know I’m following these events, and I welcome your input on how the U.S. should move forward.

Federal Spending Update As you know, the House of Representatives controls the federal purse strings, and we’ve been the leaders in putting together a detailed spending plan for Fiscal Year 2015.  We’re able to set guidelines on how each federal agency spends their money, so we’re setting national priorities for the coming year. For example, the Financial Services appropriations bill, which passed the House last week, cuts all funding for the IRS to implement Obamacare.  We’ve prevented your tax dollars from being used to subsidize abortion coverage for federal employees, and we’ve denied the Vice President a pay raise, all in one House-passed spending bill.  We can also increase funding in key areas, like ensuring our selfless troops get a 1.8% raise for their continued sacrifice, instead of the 1% raise requested by this administration.

Since my last update, the House has passed four more spending bills, totaling 7 out of the 12 appropriations bills.  But we need the Senate to move on these bills too, so we can send them to the White House for the President’s signature.  We have 5 more to go, so we’ll continue to discuss funding for the remaining federal departments, including homeland security and foreign operations, labor and health funding, and education.  I’ll keep fighting to get our spending under-control, and I hope you’ll share your spending priorities in these areas with me too.

Simplifying the Tax Code for Families As a parent and grandparent, I know there’s nothing more rewarding than building a family.  But I also know having kids can come at a high cost.  This week, the House will vote on two bills to streamline our current tax code to reduce the cost of starting a family and sending your kids to college.  The Child Tax Credit Improvement Act of 2014 adjusts the child tax credit to account for recent inflation and eliminates our current tax code’s marriage penalty by adjusting the threshold for married couples to qualify for the credit.  This allows more parents to access this important benefit.  The Student and Family Tax Simplification Act streamlines four existing education tax credits into one consolidated American Opportunity Tax Credit.  This bill eases the financial burden of higher education, so more low- and middle-income families can afford to send their kids to college.  Together, these two bills will help families plan, save, and invest in education.  They’ll reduce the financial stress parents face so they can focus on what’s most important: their family.

Defending Our Veterans’ Religious Freedom Just after we found out about the VA covering up wait times for veterans, we found out they’re also covering up Christian symbols in VA chapels.  We’ve heard reports that the VA has hidden a statue of Jesus Christ, a cross, and an altar in order to promote the appearance of ‘religious neutrality.’  This dishonors our veterans and our longstanding history of religious freedom.  I sent a letter to Acting VA Secretary Sloan Gibson asking him to clarify the origin of their ‘religious neutrality’ policy and to find out what safeguards they’ve put in place to ensure our veterans maintain their constitutional right to religious freedom.  Our veterans should be able to attend a VA chapel and freely practice their religion, without this clear infringement of their constitutional rights.  I’ll keep you updated on my efforts to support religious freedom for our veterans, and for every American citizen.

Congressman Randy Neugebauer proudly represents the 19th Congressional District of Texas, which stretches across 29 counties.  He has offices in the cities of Abilene, Big Spring and Lubbock.

As one of the most conservative Members of Congress, Randy works to keep Washington accountable to hardworking American taxpayers by requiring commonsense spending and borrowing limits.

Randy was raised in West Texas, and he is a voice for traditional Texan values in Washington. Randy graduated from Texas Tech in 1972 with a degree in accounting.  He went on to work in real estate management, eventually starting his own land development company.

As a small business owner, Randy knows first-hand the dedication and commitment it takes to own and manage a successful company.  He also knows how government regulations can quickly deplete the resources of a small business, causing hard times for families and communities. Randy brings this businessman’s perspective to Congress where he advocates for reduced spending, fiscal discipline, free markets, and limited government.

Randy serves on three committees in the House of Representatives, where he can work on legislation that directly benefits his constituents.  He is a senior member of the House Agriculture Committee and the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee.  Additionally, he serves as the Chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing and Insurance.

As Housing and Insurance Subcommittee Chairman, he’s working to reform the housing market, cut regulatory burdens, and shift risk away from American taxpayers and back into the private sector.

Randy’s legislative initiatives include eliminating wasteful federal spending, improving crop insurance, and supporting diverse domestic energy sources. He continues to work on legislation that will empower the constituents of the 19th Congressional District.

Randy’s support of conservative principles has been recognized by many groups and organizations.  He has received the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Spirit of Enterprise Award, the Club for Growth Defender of Economic Freedom Award, and the Taxpayer’s Friend Award from the National Taxpayers Union.  He has earned a 100% lifetime rating by National Right to Life.  He has been recognized by National Journal as one of the six most conservative members of the U.S. House of Representatives.  In addition, Randy serves as an Assistant Republican Whip to House Republican Whip Kevin McCarthy.

Randy is married to his high school sweetheart, Dana, who is a Ropesville native. Together they have two sons, two daughters-in-law, and are the proud grandparents of three boys and one girl.
