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 Introduces Balanced Budget Amendment
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) today filed H.J. Res. 114, legislation to amend the U.S. Constitution that, if passed and ratified, would require Congress to annually pass a balanced budget. Roby has introduced similar legislation each Congress since being elected. “For far too long our federal government has operated far beyond its means. It is irresponsible and dangerous to continue down this fiscal path,” Roby said. “American families balance their budgets. Businesses balance their budgets. Most states and local governments have no choice but to balance their budgets. With more than 19 trillion dollars in federal debt, it is past time that Congress and the President were constitutionally required to balance our budget.” Roby’s proposal would: Prohibit federal expenditures from exceeding federal revenues within the same fiscal year and 20 percent of the gross domestic product for the preceding calendar year; Require the President to submit to
House Passes Kate’s Law, Bill to Combat Sanctuary City Policies
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. House of Representatives today took action to keep Americans safe by passing legislation designed to combat violent crime by illegal immigrants and crack down on dangerous sanctuary policies. H.R. 3003, the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act, would prohibit cities and states from implementing sanctuary policies and cut off taxpayer funding for jurisdictions that obstruct enforcement of federal immigration laws. H.R. 3004, Kate’s Law, would increase the maximum penalties for criminal aliens who reenter the United States illegally. The bill is named for Kathryn Steinle who was murdered in San Francisco by an illegal immigrant who had been deported several times prior. “We are delivering on our promise to keep Americans safe,” Roby said. “It’s unconscionable to think that our system failed so badly that innocent people have been the victims of violent crimes by illegal immigrants. Americans are rightly outraged by this, and we are working to put a stop
Defense Funding Bill Approved by House Appropriations Committee
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The House Appropriations Committee today approved the Fiscal Year 2018 Defense Appropriations bill, legislation that funds the Department of Defense and its operations. Roby, who serves on the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, said today’s action was an important step toward ensuring the military is fully funded in 2018. “The men and women of our Armed Forces must be equipped with everything they need when we send them into harm’s way,” Roby said. “I have been a vocal advocate for restoring proper military funding throughout my time in Congress. This bill is an important first step toward reversing the reduction of readiness and strength that has taken place in recent years.” The legislation provides $658.1 billion in total for the Department of Defense, including: $584.2 billion in discretionary funding - $68.1 billion above the FY 2017 level and $18.4 billion above the President’s request; $73.9 billion in Overseas Contingency Operations (O
Connecting Today’s Students with Tomorrow’s Careers
The June jobs report was released Friday, and it shows some positive economic progress. Wages are up and the economy added 222,000 jobs, far exceeding expectations for June. The national unemployment rate ticked up by a tenth to 4.4 percent, but economists say that’s actually healthy because it was caused by more Americans joining the workforce. Alabama’s unemployment rate sits at 4.9 percent, which is its lowest level in nine years. All this is welcome news, and our focus going forward must be continuing the positive momentum. The House of Representatives has recently taken several measures to foster economic growth and opportunity, and I am particularly proud of our work to strengthen career and technical education to support our workforce. I’m a big believer in career tech programs for three simple reasons: They help prepare students for rewarding careers; they ensure American workers have the necessary training for skilled trades that are foundational to our society; and
