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 gave his views on the current happenings in Washington during a town hall meeting Saturday and said as a former college instructor, he would give the Administration a "D" if he had to grade their progress when it comes to hot topics from the war to health care.

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.

A Decision on North Korea
For more than fifty years the United States has had a contentious and adverse relationship with North Korea. Since the end of the Korean War in 1953, we have maintained a military presence in South Korea and have considered South Korea as a strong ally in the region.   While the relationship between the two nations has long simmered, the past four decades have focused on North Korea’s quest to attain nuclear capabilities and the United States’ efforts to prevent it from doing so. Despite our efforts at diplomacy, sanctions, military exercises and other methods to thwart North Korea’s nuclear ambitions, it has continued to make progress towards achieving its goal to become a nuclear power. North Korea exploded its first nuclear device in 2006 - since then it has detonated at least six more.   Any efforts to achieve nuclear capability by an adversary of the United States is a matter of grave concern. But when that adversary is led by a ruthless and unstable dictator, the conc

The legislation also includes several provisions to rein in unnecessary regulations, and to protect the sanctity of life.   “This bill reflects Republican priorities to cut spending and focus investments in programs our people need the most – public health an
