Rep. Roby Speaks Out

Alabama U.S. District 2 Representative Martha Roby says the nation has ample resources but that our oil production is decreasing due to "Washington beaurocracy and obstructionism."

She says it's a result of the slow pace of re-vamping offshore drilling permits in Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico.

Representative Roby and 99 other lawmakers urge the white house to end the "permatorium and immediately expedite the permaning process for safe offshore energy exploration and development."

    How did she vote for that bridge? She wasn't in congress when it was voted on.

    Maybe Ms. Roby would like to explain why she voted to fund the "bridge to nowhere" in Alaska? Seems to me she's living up to reputation as "if you have the money, then you'll get my vote." I'd sure like to see her bank account!!!

    We are well represented by Rep Roby. What a refreshing event after two years of Bright and his corrupt Democrat buddies.

    You go Martha Roby. Challenge him to his face if you get a chance. Let the liberals know that they are not going to give our country away.
