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 ...

It’s Official – No More Common Core Coercion
It’s official – there will be no more attempts by the U.S. Department of Education to coerce states into adopting its preferred policies, standards, and curriculum, including Common Core. Our nation’s new Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos confirmed this to me in no uncertain terms during a congressional hearing last week.     That’s the way it should be because that’s the law. Back in 2013 I sponsored the Defending State Authority Over Education Act, which sought to put an end to the practice of U.S. Department of Education officials using funding grants and special policy waivers to coerce states into adopting their pet policies. Over the next few years I worked to get the bill language included in the larger overhaul of the flawed No Child Left Behind law, and I finally succeeded in late 2015 when Congress passed the the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) with my provisions prohibiting federal coercion.   My questions to Secretary DeVos were whether she acknowledges
Roby Applauds VA Health Records Modernization
MONTGOMERY, Ala. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) today applauded action taken by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to modernize its electronic patient record system in order to improve and streamline health care for veterans.   President Donald Trump and Secretary of Veterans Affairs Dr. David Shulkin announced Monday that the VA will adopt the same health record platform as the Department of Defense, resulting in a more seamless transition of care for servicemen and women leaving the military.   “Modernization of the VA health record system is long overdue,” Roby said. “It has never made sense to me that the VA would use a different health record system than the Department of Defense. These inconsistent systems lead to unnecessary gaps in health care for veterans, many times when they need it most. I applaud President Trump and Secretary Shulkin for taking this important step to improve and streamline veterans’ health care. I will continue to work with
Honoring the Sacrifice
Our country took a collective pause on Memorial Day to honor the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Holiday weekends can be fun, relaxing times spent with family, but Memorial Day isn’t just a long weekend away from work. It’s a time to remember those who have lost their lives fighting for this great country and to reflect on their noble, selfless sacrifice.   In order to truly honor our fallen heroes, it’s our responsibility to do more than reflecting for a few moments on a holiday weekend. During the Memorial Day observances at Arlington National Cemetery last week, General Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, offered a call to action that really hit home for me.   General Dunford said, “today if we truly want to honor the fallen from all our conflicts, we’ll do something more than mark their graves with flags and flowers. We’ll do something more than delivering remarks and reflect for just a few moments. If we truly wan
Roby Announces 2017 Service Academy Appointees
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) today announced her 2017 appointments to the United States service academies. Each year Rep. Roby nominates students from Alabama’s Second District to be considered for appointment to the United States Air Force, Naval, Military, and Merchant Marine Academies.   “It is an honor to nominate distinguished young men and women for appointment to our nation’s service academies each year,” Roby said. “I admire these students for their eagerness to serve our country, their academic excellence, and their strong leadership ability. I join their families, friends, and teachers in congratulating these men and women on this outstanding accomplishment. I am confident they will be successful in their future endeavors.”   The following students were nominated by Rep. Roby and received official appointments to the United States service academies:   Simeon Bowden – A native of Andalusia, Simeon is the son of Benjamin a
