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.

Protecting Our Native Heritage and Communities
A key element of America’s constitution is the relationship our nation has had with Native Americans. Although there are moments in history where that relationship has been strained, the federal government today has been a usually reliable supporter of tribal sovereignty and self-government – a concept enshrined in the Constitution. Native Americans are the ‘First People’ of our land, and the federal government has a responsibility to support their sovereignty and promote their well-being as citizens of this country.    In recent years, Congress has put in place protections to help tribal communities with issues like healthcare, housing and crime. In 2013, I was proud to support the passage of the Violence Against Women Act for its provisions to help protect Native women and combat domestic violence on Indian reservations. This year, I am a cosponsor of the Special Diabetes Program for Indians Reauthorization Act. It is an important program has had a tremendous impact on Ok

Supporting Our Missions Formally Across the Globe
The United States is fortunate to have the world’s strongest and most capable military force. Each day, thousands of men and women in uniform put their lives on the line to protect our nation and our fundamental freedoms. Beyond our own borders, they are working all over the world to ensure our country remains secure on the international stage. And we were all saddened and shocked to hear of the deaths of four U.S Army Special Operations soldiers killed in Niger earlier this month. Although questions remain unanswered, it is a sobering reminder of the United States’ role and mission in the fight against terrorism.   For 16 years our nation has been engaged in the fight against terrorism in Iraq, Afghanistan and other parts of the Middle East. We have had a military presence in the Middle East since the first battles against our enemies in 2001, but the nature of the conflict has changed dramatically. After two presidential administrations, our country is being challenged by a ne
Cole Statement on the Fiscal Year 2018 Budget Resolution
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the House passed the Senate Amendment to H. Con. Res. 71, the Senate version of the Fiscal Year 2018 Budget Resolution.   “The passage of the Senate’s amended budget provides the necessary framework for the much-needed tax reform our nation needs. This is a critical step toward putting in place a tax system that will unleash economic growth, individual prosperity and American ingenuity. I look forward to reviewing the tax package that the House Ways and Means Committee proposes in the coming weeks, and will continue to advocate for a more balanced, fair and simplified tax code.”   ###   Contact: Teresa Davis (202) 225-6165
