Martha believes that Washington works best when it gets out of the way and allows small businesses and individuals to succeed.


SECOND AMENDMENT

As a gun owner herself and a lifetime NRA member, Martha strongly values the rights guaranteed in the Second Amendment. She has consistently fought efforts to erode gun rights in the past and will continue to in the future.

The U.S. Constitution as the supreme law of the land and it clearly protects an individual's right to own firearms. The overwhelming majority of gun owners are law-abiding citizens who strictly adhere to applicable rules and safety procedures.

Martha's strong support for Second Amendment rights and fight against attempts to pass overreaching gun control laws was cited by the Alabama Patriots as a key reason for their endorsement: http://yellowhammernews.com/politics-2/alabama-tea-party-group-endorses-roby-citing-her-support-for-military/

PRO-LIFE AND DEFUNDING PLANNED PARENTHOOD

As a prominent leader in the pro-life movement, Martha Roby has fought to increase protections for the unborn and expose the brutality of the abortion industry.

She was the first Member of Congress to speak out on the House Floor about the undercover videos that revealed Planned Parenthood's organ harvesting and marketing scheme. She was also the last one standing in the fight to defund Planned Parenthood, leading a "last ditch effort" to takeaway taxpayer dollars from the organization.

Martha was recently named by Newsmax as one of the "Most Influential Pro-Life Advocates" alongside the Rev. Franklin Graham, Tim Tebow and Dr. Ben Carson. http://www.newsmax.com/TheWire/pro-life-advocates-influential/2015/11/04/id/700495/

MORE JOBS AND A STRONGER ECONOMY

As a conservative, Martha Roby knows that that lower taxes and fewer government regulations can unleash the private sector and help our economy flourish. She has repeatedly fought against tax increases and has repeatedly lead efforts to rein in burdensome regulations.

FIGHTING FOR VETERANS

Veterans have no greater fighter in Congress than Martha Roby. She has consistently voted to support veterans and make sure they receive the care and benefits they were promised.

When the VA scandal hit Central Alabama, Martha worked with courageous whistleblowers and the media to expose major instances of corruption and malfeasance within the system, such as:

Manipulation of veteran patient scheduling data was pervasive, as a national-high of more than 57 percent of employees reported that managers instructed them to change appointment times to artificially hide chronically long waits.
More than 1000 patient X-Rays, some showing malignancies, went missing for months and years.
A pulmonologist was caught twice falsifying more than 1200 patient records, but somehow given a satisfactory review.
An employee took a recovering veteran to a crack house, bought him drugs and paid for prostitutes all to extort his benefits. When caught, the employee wasn’t fired - not until a year and half later when we exposed it publicly.

Martha's efforts led to the Central Alabama VA director being fired, the first VA employee terminated under a new VA accountability law.

Her efforts earned her the “Minuteman of the Year” Award from the Alabama Reserve Officer's Association at the National Veterans Day celebration in Birmingham.

STRENGTHENING OUR MILITARY

Martha Roby believes in "peace through strength," and has fought to ensure the military has the resources it needs to meet global threats. She has been a fierce opponent of harmful cuts to the military and went against her party leadership to vote against the bill that led to military "sequestration."

Martha is a leading voice in Congress for restoring military spending to proper levels. She has warned about the threat out-of-control spending on social welfare programs threatens our ability to fund defense and other national priorities.
