Robert's number one priority is rebuilding America's economy.
He is working alongside President Trump to ensure that American families thrive in the coming decades. For him, that starts at home. Over the past four years, there has been tremendous growth within the 4th District and across North Alabama. He's proud of the progress made in Alabama’s aerospace and defense, agriculture, and manufacturing industries -- but his work isn't finished yet.
Robert believes that every American deserves the opportunity to live out the American Dream. That's what he's fighting for. He is working to cut taxes even more, slash regulation, and bring jobs back to our shores. He is a strong advocate for President Trump’s America First agenda that both prioritizes our country's workers and provides a foundation for a stronger economy.
Here are some ways Robert is fighting to rebuild our economy:
Robert is advancing American leadership around the world.
He plays a key role in guiding and leading our government’s investment in cutting-edge technology. He’s proud to represent North Alabama when negotiating strategic investments and planning defense budgets. Robert also leads the charge to ensure our country has the most sophisticated technology at its disposal to protect the homeland. His leadership in advancing our cyber defenses, underscoring the importance of space exploration, and modernizing our military capabilities is critical to America’s global leadership.
Robert is also proud to represent communities on the cutting edge of American innovation. North Alabama hosts industry leaders in aerospace, defense contracting, rocket engines, manufacturing, and beyond -- all of which contribute to American strength.
Here are some of the ways Robert is building on America’s leadership:
Robert stands with our brave men and women in law enforcement.
Robert proudly supports the courageous police officers serving across America. While the far-Left degrades their hard work and threatens to defund them, Robert is committed to defending them.
Robert believes defunding police departments is counterproductive and makes our streets more dangerous. Instead, he believes there are effective, commonsense solutions to make policing safer and better for everyone. These include building on current training and hiring programs, improving de-escalation protocols, and reforming data collection processes.
The bottom line is this: high-crime areas need more law enforcement presence, not less; defunded police departments would make our streets more dangerous, not less; and the brave men and women who keep us safe deserve more respect, not less.
Robert is fighting alongside President Trump to hold China accountable and bring jobs back to America.
He has worked with the Trump Administration to stop China’s communist government from stealing the intellectual property of American businesses and our military technology. Robert has also condemned China by name for violating religious freedoms and other basic human rights. While international partnerships are important, China has been taking advantage of our country for too long. Robert’s working to bring manufacturing jobs and essential production back to America. That’s how we’ll ensure our country -- not China -- leads in future generations.
Robert stands with President Trump in supporting policies that put the livelihoods of our citizens first. He continues to denounce the Chinese government for its failures in containing and reporting the COVID-19 pandemic -- which has devastated the lives of countless Americans. Robert will do everything in his power to prevent future coverups from the Chinese government that could cost American lives.
Here are some of the ways Robert has fought to hold China accountable and put Americans first:
Robert is Northern Alabama’s top advocate for rural broadband expansion.
He saw that Alabama was 38th in broadband access and is fighting to connect Alabama’s communities -- both rural and urban -- with reliable, high-speed internet. Why? Because internet access drives innovation and connection. That’s how we move Alabama forward -- especially now that schools, medicine, and jobs are increasingly becoming digital.
Robert has raised this critical issue in the halls of Congress and penned a letter to President Trump underscoring the importance to our communities both in Alabama and across America.
Here are some of the results Robert has delivered for broadband expansion:
Robert is one of the leading Pro-Life Members of Congress.
He has spent over a decade protecting the most vulnerable among us, and he has led efforts to defend life and elevate abortion alternatives. Robert believes that every life is a gift from God and should be celebrated, which is why he has participated in the March for Life, supported a ban on federal health coverage that includes abortion procedures, and fought against using taxpayer dollars to fund abortions both at home and abroad.
He has also used his important committee assignments to push for FDA protections for embryos and Pro-Life regulatory efforts. He will not rest until our country is free of abortion practices.
Here are some of the achievements Robert has earned for his Pro-Life work:
