Representative Roby's Weekly Columns
February 14, 2011 Representative Roby's Weekly Column
Last November, the American people sent a very clear message: our current course of more spending and more debt is unsustainable. Accordingly, the 112th Congress—especially its newest members—have both a mandate and a responsibility to restrain federal spending, reign in skyrocketing deficits, and adopt free market policies that put our country back on track to economic growth and job creation.

Last week, I proudly voted in support of H.R. 2 to repeal the Healthcare Reform Act. The House of Representatives successfully passed the bill by a vote of 245-189. Throughout the district, my constituents have repeatedly told me that the health care reform bill—2,000 pages of costly and burdensome regulations—is limiting economic growth and preventing the creation of new jobs.
