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 ...

Turning election energy into results
It has now been just a week since the 2016 election, which will certainly go down as one of the most consequential in modern American history. In the early morning hours when the race was finally called, I offered my sincere congratulations to President-Elect Donald Trump and Vice President-Elect Mike Pence, and expressed how eager I was to get to work putting our country back on track. There’s no question that in electing Donald Trump president and maintaining Republican majorities in the House and Senate, Americans sent a clear message that we must turn away from the top-down, big-government, Washington-knows-best approach of the Obama era to a more conservative, sustainable path. After six years in Congress of playing defense against the Obama Administration, I’m looking forward to playing offense with a Republican-led House, Senate and White House and hopefully being able to get more done. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve another term and, no matter what, I will co
Clinton Email Saga Continues
Late last week, FBI Director James Comey announced that his agents have begun analyzing new evidence in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of an unsecured, private server to conduct government business during her time as Secretary of State. In his letter to Congress, Director Comey said the FBI “learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation.” According to sources who spoke to The New York Times, the existence of new emails comes from devices confiscated in the investigation into former Congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.   Of course, back in July, Comey announced that he would not be recommending charges be brought against Clinton, which seemed to run counter to evidence that the letter and spirit of federal law were broken. I said at the time that it was a sad day for the rule of law in our country and that, while it was hardly surprising that Clinton evaded prosecution, many who stil
Shopping Local Supports Jobs, Quality of Life
This past week I met with leaders from Alabama’s retail industry as they launched their “Shop Alabama” campaign – an effort to encourage consumers to shop at locally-owned or Alabama-based retailers. I was proud to lend my voice to this promotion, which supports thousands of home-grown Alabama businesses and the jobs they sustain.     The retail industry employs more than 400,000 people in Alabama, making the industry as a whole the largest private sector employer in our state. Dollars spent shopping and dining help fuel our state’s economic engine by adding an enormous $19 billion to our economy annually. The impact is just as great on our state budgets, as retail sales tax account for $2 billion in revenue to fund critical state services. When we shop local, we support the livelihoods of our friends and neighbors and make it possible for government to function properly.   But, it isn’t all dollars and cents. There are intangible benefits that may be hard to measu
Drought adds to challenges facing our farmers
As you know, Alabama is in the midst of a drought of historic proportions. The latest assessment from the National Drought Mitigation Center showed that more than 65 percent of the state is now in extreme or exceptional drought. Such a serious drought affects nearly all Alabamians in some way. Shifting soil can cause busted water mains and dried up reservoirs can force water restrictions for consumers. The threat of wildfires has become dangerous, as more than 12,000 acres statewide have burned in the last 30 days with no substantial rainfall predicted.   However, no one is more drastically affected by a lack of rain than our state’s farmers and ranchers, whose livelihoods depend on our weather conditions. I recently met with several producers from a wide range of agriculture products in Houston County for a roundtable discussion about some of the challenges they are facing. The dry soil has certainly impacted crop production, but it has also caused a serious shortage of hay that
