Cole Statement on Defense Strategy Announcement

Rep. Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after President Obama announced new defense strategy priorities in remarks at the Pentagon: "These changes will make America weaker, not stronger. We are cutting defense spending and the size of our armed forces because the Obama administration is overspending in other areas, not because we have a military that is too large or overfunded. "We still live in a very dangerous world that won't be safer with fewer American soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. Moreover, the reductions in the size of our ground forces will force the United ...

Congressman Tom Cole Weighs in on Health Care, Troop Surge

Cole Statement on Keystone Pipeline Announcement

Rep. Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the White House announced it is rejecting plans to move forward with the Keystone XL pipeline: "President Obama's decision to block the Keystone pipeline is indefensible. This is a purely political move that puts the president's campaign ahead of the urgent need to create American jobs. Years of extensive study show that Keystone will be just as environmentally safe as the many other pipelines already crisscrossing the nation. ... Source: cole.house.gov

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 3354, the Make America Secure and Prosperous Appropriations Act, 2018. This legislation packages the remaining eight Fiscal Year 2018 appropriations measures together to include: Agriculture; Commerce, Justice and Science; Financial Services; Homeland Security; Interior; Labor, Health and Human Services and Education; State and Foreign Operations; Transportation, Housing and Urban Development. It was passed in the House by a vote of 211-198 with Cole's support.   “The House has passed all 12 appropriations bills through the House before the October 1 deadline," said Cole. "This has not been accomplished since 2006. I hope that this momentum will continue and carry over to future negotiations on funding our government.”   “I am especially proud to bring forth this year’s Labor, Health and Human Services and Education appropriations bill in this package. Within t
A Return to Regular Order
Each year, millions of Americans rely on numerous federal agencies and the government for assistance on a wide range of priorities. Farmers need support for food safety programs. Veterans rely on VA hospitals for medical attention. Researchers need funds to continue programs that range from finding cures for cancer to preventing the next disease epidemic. Through the Constitution, Congress has held the role to authorize and appropriate funds for the variety of programs that the government runs. Although the power of the purse is in the hands of Congress, it has been a battle to pass spending bills through regular order for the past few years.   Our government has been functioning on continuing resolutions for the past few years, meaning that we are appropriating funds each fiscal year on the levels from the previous fiscal year to avoid a government shutdown. That is detrimental to our government programs, our military and to the American taxpayer. By passing each fiscal year’s ap
Cole Statement on University of Oklahoma President David Boren's Retirement
Norman, OK – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after University of Oklahoma President David Boren announced his intention to retire at the end of the academic year.   “As someone who has known David Boren for over 40 years, it was with mixed emotions that I learned of his decision to step down as President of the University of Oklahoma at the end of the academic year,” said Cole. “I consider President Boren to be the most consequential and influential Oklahoman since Robert S. Kerr. As a state legislator, governor, U.S. Senator and President of OU, he has contributed more than any other Oklahoman to the wellbeing of our country and the state of Oklahoma.”   “Personally, while I respect his decision, I regard his departure as a great loss for OU and the state of Oklahoma. Every Oklahoman and OU alumni realizes his departure is a genuine loss, and it will be hard to replace him with someone of his vision, talent and stature.”   “Presid
Cole Statement on President Trump's Speech to the UN General Assembly
Norman, OK – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after President Trump delivered his first speech to the United Nations (UN) General Assembly.   “President Trump’s speech was clearly one of the best and most consequential speeches of his presidency thus far,” said Cole. “He gave a spirited defense of American values and interests to the UN, and he put America first.”   “In addition, he sent a direct, blunt and clear message that unambiguously called out North Korea, Iran and Venezuela for activities at odds with the best interests of the civilized world. In doing so, President Trump made it clear that America continues to lead and uphold the international order. He was also quick to remind other countries to do their part in reigning in rogue nations and terrorist organizations.”   “Make no mistake about it, this speech was a major statement defining America’s role on the international stage. I believe historians will look back
