Roby votes against compromise


U.S. Rep. Martha Roby (R-Montgomery) voted against the debt ceiling compromise bill Monday night. The measure passed the House 269-161 in a roll call vote. “I was unable to support this legislation because, after a careful reading of the bill, I fear it could ultimately result in devastating and unjustified cuts to our national security,” Roby said in a prepared statement released by her office. “This bill, unlike previous proposals I supported, has a weak firewall against potentially destructive defense cuts. To be sure, there are savings to be found in the ...


Roby announces support for Speaker Boehner's debt plan


All eyes in Washington have been on the renegade Republican freshmen and whether they would back or buck their leader in the crisis negotiations to raise the debt ceiling. On Thursday morning, U.S. Rep. Martha Roby firmly placed herself in the category of backing House Speaker John Boehner's proposal to cut spending in exchange for raising the nation's debt limit, and avoiding a financial calamity. Roby, R-Montgomery, led a gang of more than 25 freshmen in a crowded press conference outside the U.S. Capitol to say that Boehner's plan, while not perfect, is better than nothing. "Some people ...


GOP's Martha Roby wants more domestic energy


Weekly remarks by President Obama, as provided by the White House Recently, there have been signs that the economy is picking up steam. Last month, we saw the strongest job growth in five years, and have added more than three-quarters of a million private sector jobs in just three months. But there are still too many Americans who are either looking for work, or struggling to pay the bills and make the mortgage. Paychecks aren’t getting any bigger, but the cost of everything from groceries to college tuition keeps on rising. Without a doubt, one of the biggest burdens over the last few ...

Roby Responds to Obama Administration's Transgender School Edict
WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-AL) today responded to the release of a joint directive from the U.S. Justice Department and the U.S Department of Education telling every public school district in the country to allow students to use bathrooms and locker rooms corresponding to their “gender identity” rather than their biological sex.  The eight-page letter instructed school administrators that, when it comes to bathrooms and locker rooms, “A school may provide separate facilities on the basis of sex, but must allow transgender students access to such facilities consistent with their gender identity. A school may not require transgender students to use facilities inconsistent with their gender identity or to use individual-user facilities when other students are not required to do so.” Roby called this federal guidance “tortuous” and said the Obama Administration is putting the social preferences of a few over the privacy rights of all.  “They have
Roby Reacts to VA Secretary's "Disney" Comments
WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) today reacted to “absurd" comments by Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald downplaying wait time problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals and questioning the need to make such information public.  During a breakfast meeting with the Christian Science Monitor on Monday, Secretary McDonald told reporters that the wait times veterans experience between making an appointment and actually being seen aren’t a good measure of performance and shouldn’t be released. Attempting to explain why overall patient satisfaction is a more accurate metric, Secretary McDonald crudely compared veteran patient wait times to amusement park lines. “When you go to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line? What’s important? What’s important is: what’s your satisfaction with the experience?” McDonald said.  “I mean, I’ve got so many measures, if I make them all public, you’re all going
Military and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Bill Passes House
This past week the House passed the Fiscal Year 2017 Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Bill. This 81.6 billion legislation provides resources for military training, equipment and services, as well as base maintenance and infrastructure. The bill also funds veterans’ benefits and programs, including the Veterans Administration (VA). As a member of the Appropriations Subcommittee that crafts this key bill, I was pleased to see it approved by the full House and get one step closer to becoming law. Appropriations bills afford Congress the opportunity to effect needed policy changes by putting certain conditions on funding. Among the many important provisions the House included in this bill were: restricting the use of funds to close Guantanamo Bay Naval Station and transfer detained terrorists to a stateside facility;  spurring improvement in the VA electronic health record system by restricting funding until certain milestones are met; stopping taxpayer-funded
Congress Combats Heroin and Opioid Epidemic
This week the House took action on a slate of bills aimed at combatting the growing heroin and opioid abuse epidemic sweeping the country. As you may know, an opioid is a type of narcotic derived from the opium poppy. It is commonly used in strong pain relief medications such as morphine, codeine, hydrocodone and oxycodone. These drugs are often prescribed in response to serious injuries or chronic pain because of the powerful and essential relief they can provide. However, opioid drugs have a high potential for abuse and addiction, especially when improperly prescribed or taken. Drug overdoses account for as many as 47,000 deaths a year, and the number of those involving opioid prescription pain relievers has risen drastically over the last several years. This trend has also given rise to greater abuse of heroin, which gives users the same high as opioid prescription pain relievers but is cheaper and more readily available. Alabama is experiencing a particularly significa
