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 to the Senate on Obamacare: Doing Nothing is not an Option
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) today reacted to the Senate’s failure to repeal and replace Obamacare and said despite differing opinions and solutions, the Senate needs to come together to deliver results for the American people. “I am very disappointed to hear about the breakdown in the Senate over the health care bill, but I was pleased to hear the President is encouraging the Senate to stay and get their work done,” Roby said. “The House has done its job, and now it is time for the Senate to roll up their sleeves and get to work. “Doing nothing is not an option,” Roby added. “Obamacare is crumbling all around us and we have to keep our promise to the American people to repeal this law and replace it with policy that makes sense.” In May, the House passed the American Health Care Act, which was the first of a three-step Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. Efforts to pass similar legislation in the Senate have stalled, promp
Headway in the House, Setback in the Senate
One of Congress’ most fundamental responsibilities is providing for the essential functions of our government, such as equipping our military with the tools they need, making sure veterans have access to services, and securing our borders. I’m proud to report that the House has taken action to ensure that these key national priorities are fully funded. Our House appropriations package that passed on Thursday restores critical funding for the military, and I am especially pleased it includes a much deserved pay raise for all military personnel. The bill also provides important resources for Alabama-based installations and projects like Army Aviation at Fort Rucker, Cyber Security at Maxwell Air Force Base, the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) built in Mobile, and the missiles built in Troy, among others. With this bill, we are also delivering on our promise to enhance border security by beginning to fund the construction of a border wall. Our country has to get serious about cracking down
Deterrence, Diplomacy, and Discipline
North Korea has been causing problems for the United States and the world for decades, but their belligerence has recently reached a new level. North Korea’s successful test launch of an Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) is a clear sign of escalated hostilities and confirmation that this nation and its dictator pose a direct threat to the United States. Secretary of Defense James Mattis has called North Korea “the most urgent threat to security and peace,” and that was prior to the regime’s most recent missile test. Secretary Mattis testified before our Defense Appropriations Subcommittee recently and described how horrible a conflict with North Korea would be, especially for neighboring countries like South Korea and Japan. “It would be a war that fundamentally we don't want,” he said. “Our allies and us would win at great cost." I concur with the Secretary’s assessment that an armed conflict with North Korea should be avoided, and that’s why I believe the U
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
