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 ...

21st Century Cures Act Brings Hope
Part of what set the United States apart as the world's preeminent nation in the 20th century was the incredible way we were able to marshal resources and talent to meet seemingly impossible challenges. The moonshot and our triumphs in world wars come to mind as examples, but Americans have also contributed extraordinary gains in health care by developing medicines that have dramatically improved the longevity and quality of life around the globe. However, as the 21st century rolls on, I am increasingly concerned that too much government regulation and a lack of focus are inhibiting us from taking the next step in treating and curing the awful diseases that plague us.   There are 10,000 known diseases in the world. 7,000 of them are considered rare, and we only have treatments for 500 of them. This leaves millions of Americans suffering from thousands of rare and deadly diseases without answers, solutions, cures, or hope. For the greatest country in the world – the country that cu
Roby: 21st Century Cures Act Gives Hope to Patients, Families
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) today celebrated the House passage of the 21st Century Cures Act, legislation providing needed funding and policy improvements to help battle rare diseases, fight the nation’s opioid epidemic, and improve mental health care.   H.R. 34, 21st Century Cures Act, provides $4.8 billion in discretionary funding to the National Institute of Health (NIH), $1 billion for grants to states to fight opioid abuse, and $500 million to the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to speed up delivering lifesaving drugs and devices to patients. The bill also modernizes electronic health record policies to allow for faster, more efficient delivery of care.   “The 21st Century Cures Act fosters innovation in medical technology and research, eliminates regulations that hinder competition, provides resources to combat the growing opioid epidemic, ensures critical support for those struggling with mental health issues, and rightfully refor
Roby: NDAA Increases Strength, Agility of our Military
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) today released a statement following House passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), annual legislation needed to authorize funding and policy for our military.   “The National Defense Authorization Act allows us to make real progress towards increasing the strength and agility of our military,” Roby said. “Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution instructs Congress to ‘provide for the common defense,’ and this legislation enables us to fulfill that responsibility.”   After today’s House passage, the Senate is expected send the bill to the President for signing, marking 55 consecutive years that the NDAA has been signed into law.     Specifically, the National Defense Authorization Act: Contains $619 billion total for national defense     Provides  $5.8 billion in supplemental funding for operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Europe Supplies  an additional $3.2 billion for Re
Montgomery-Based 187th Fighter Wing on Short List for F-35
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Montgomery-based 187th Fighter Wing is among five Air National Guard units throughout the country being considered to house the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, Air Force officials announced Wednesday.   The F-35 is the military’s most cutting-edge war machine that will eventually replace many Cold War-era fighters like the F-16 currently flown by the 187th. Today’s announcement moves the Air Force one step closer to its final selection of two National Guard units to which the F-35 will be assigned. The final selection is expected in the Spring of 2017.   U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) has been promoting the 187th and Dannelly Field as an “ideal fit” for the F-35 assignment.   “Alabama’s 187th Fighter Wing is an excellent candidate for the F-35 program, which is evident by its placement on this short list. The F-35’s next-generation capabilities will give American aviators unquestioned air superiority in combat situations around the g
