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

Dozens of Oklahomans weighed in on issues from health care to soldiers overseas at a town hall meeting Saturday inChickasha with Representative Tom Cole.

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

Justice Neil Gorsuch
The sudden and untimely death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia in February 2016 left an enormous void in our nation’s judicial system. It would not be an overstatement to say he was one of the most consequential justices in American History. It was a fitting and appropriate decision, therefore, to delay hearings and a confirmation vote until the people had the opportunity to weigh in through their vote for president. I believe President Trump’s victory was a mandate for the elevation of a conservative judge to the Supreme Court.   The confirmation of Justice Gorsuch essentially maintains the ideological balance of the court with four reliable liberal votes, four reliable conservative votes and the swing vote of Anthony Kennedy, for whom Justice Gorsuch once clerked.   Ironically, there was strong bipartisan support for Justice Gorsuch in every realm in which he has practiced law. The only place that bipartisan support was absent was the United States Senate. When Gor
For Syria, An AUMF Is Needed
For the past sixteen years, the United States has been engaged in several military conflicts, primarily, but not exclusively, in the Middle East. Unfortunately, after eight years of President Obama’s erratic and uninformed foreign policy, the threats to the United States have only grown. President Trump has declared a more aggressive approach to fighting terrorism, and his actions give every indication that - unlike President Obama – when this President draws a line in the sand, crossing it will have consequences.   Following the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, President Bush asked for, and received, an Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) against those responsible for the attacks. The authorization granted the President the authority to use all "necessary and appropriate force" against those who "planned, authorized, committed or aided" the terrorist attacks. The following year, President Bush sought, and was granted, a separate AUMF in Iraq. Despite be
Students Invited To Enter 2017 Congressional Art Competition

The annual contest recognizes and encourages artistic talent of young constituents across the nation, including those living in Oklahoma’s Fourth Congressional District.   After the Fourth District winner has been announced, the student’s artwork will be displayed for one year in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. In addition, the winning prize includes travel to Washington with a guest for a reception and award presentation, courtesy of Southwest Airlines. The Fourth District winner also becomes eligible to receive a $3,000 scholarship to the Savannah College of Art & Design or Tennessee Wesleyan Universit
Cole Congratulates Judge Gorsuch on Confirmation to the Supreme Court
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) congratulated Judge Neil Gorsuch after his confirmation to the Supreme Court by the Senate. Gorsuch was confirmed by a vote of 54-45.   “I applaud the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court," said Cole. "He is well within the judicial mainstream and like Justice Scalia, is a firm defender of our Constitution. I believe his sound judgement combined with his civil demeanor makes him a truly outstanding person to sit on the highest court in the land."   “The vote on Judge Gorsuch should have been a no-brainer. He was clearly qualified to fill the vacant seat and had been confirmed unanimously by the Senate when he was nominated to his previous position on the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. I am confident that his tenure on the Supreme Court will demonstrate to the American people that this confirmation should have been similarly unanimous.”   ###   Contact: Teresa Davis (202) 225-6165
