Woodall Statement On Obergefell v. Hodges Ruling

2015/06/26

(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (GA 07) issued the following statement after the Supreme Court’s Obergefell v. Hodges ruling. 

“Justice Roberts in his dissent said it well. ‘[T[his Court is not a legislature…Under the Constitution, judges have power to say what the law is, not what it should be… The fun­damental right to marry does not include a right to make a State change its definition of marriage.’ That issue is at the core of this debate and can’t be overstated,” said Rep. Woodall.  “The narrowest of margins in this decision has overridden the voice of millions of Americans in sovereign states across the country.  In his dissent, Justice Roberts went on to say, ‘Today...the Court takes the extraordinary step of ordering every State to license and recognize same-sex marriage. Many people will rejoice at this decision…. But for those who believe in a government of laws, not of men, the majority’s ap­proach is deeply disheartening. Supporters of same-sex marriage have achieved considerable success persuading their fellow citizens—through the democratic process—to adopt their view. That ends today. Five lawyers have closed the debate and enacted their own vision of marriage as a matter of constitutional law.’”

Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes the majority of Gwinnett and Forsyth counties, and currently serves as Chairman of the Rules Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process, as well as serving on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and Budget Committee.

Woodall Statement On King v. Burwell Ruling

2015/06/25

(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (GA 07) issued the following statement in reaction to the Supreme Court’s King v. Burwell ruling.   

“The Court’s ruling today maintains the status quo – a health care system where government bureaucrats are pulling the strings behind the scenes, where Americans are forced to accept government assistance, and where millions of Americans are still left uninsured even as we send hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars out the door,” said Rep. Woodall. “This decision doesn’t fulfill the broken promises made by the President as he sought to win America's support for his Washington takeover of the entire health care industry, and sadly those promises continue to be broken one by one every day: millions of citizens have been forced off the health care plans they liked and forced onto Obamacare plans they do not, all the while losing access to the doctor that they trust – despite the President’s repeated claims to the contrary.” 

“Americans still need health care they can afford; and Americans still want the freedom to choose the policy that works best for their family.  Irrespective of the Court’s decision today, America still needs real health care reform that delivers on these commitments. Delaying or masking the effects of Obamacare does not solve the underlying problems of high costs and limited choice, and I remain committed to finding those long-term solutions.”

Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes the majority of Gwinnett and Forsyth counties, and currently serves as Chairman of the Rules Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process, as well as serving on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and Budget Committee.

Rep. Rob Woodall Votes to Restrain EPA Regulations

2015/06/24

(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (GA 07) issued the following statement regarding his support of H.R. 2042, the “Ratepayer Protection Act,” which would extend the deadline – pending judicial review – for states to comply with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s existing or future rules addressing emissions of carbon dioxide from fossil-fuel fired power plants.  The measure passed the House by a 247 – 180 vote.

“No one cares more about our air quality than those of us right here at home, but reckless regulation from Washington won’t get us there,” said Rep. Woodall.  “The question is not whether or not we want to protect our environment – because we all do.  The right question is how do we actually achieve that goal.  Rather than seeking a change in law from Congress, the EPA simply decided to dramatically reinterpret laws that have been well-understood for more than 40 years.  This radical reinterpretation is based neither on science nor need, but is simply part of a political agenda, and it is certain to hinder economic growth, drive up the cost of energy, and reduce the quality of life for the American people.  Broad, sweeping federal regulations have economic consequences, and as we have seen so often with this Administration, the tendency is to act unilaterally first and worry about the process and effects later.  The EPA’s authority to implement such regulations is already in question – as indicated by the pending judicial review – and this bill grants states the opportunity to learn the outcome before mandating costly action.”

Woodall Statement On Trade Promotion Authority Passage

2015/06/12

(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (GA 07) issued the following statement regarding his support of the House-passed measure regarding Trade Promotion Authority (TPA).  The language mandates Congressional consultation and approval of any trade deal negotiated by the President, while also requiring the text of a completed agreement to be published at least 60 days prior to consent. 

“All Americans want America’s economy to be the finest in the world, but for too long, America has been on the sidelines as other nations grew their trade and grew their economies,” said Rep. Woodall.  “Now, for the first time in his presidency, President Obama is indicating that he wants to get America back on the field.  I say better late than never.  Responsible free-trade in the global marketplace grows the American economy and benefits American workers.” 

“That being said, America’s trust in this President is at a historic low.  Neither Democrats nor Republicans in Congress are willing to hand him the reins.  That is why I am pleased that today the House passed Trade Promotion Authority (TPA).  TPA creates a process to allow the President’s team to negotiate on behalf of America while prohibiting the President from shutting out Congress or the American people along the way.  For the first time ever, TPA will require that Congress and the American people have at least 60 days to review the text of any agreement, and also prohibit any agreement from beginning until Congress approves it.  TPA is not – nor does it approve – a specific trade agreement, but it is a mechanism to ensure that irrespective of the President’s efforts, only Congress and the American people will have the final say on what is good for America.” 

Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes the majority of Gwinnett and Forsyth counties, and currently serves as Chairman of the Rules Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process, as well as serving on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and Budget Committee.
