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 said when the House narrowly passed the landmark health care bill last month, health care reform took a giant step backward. "I think what we have is still not acceptable ...

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

An Executive Protection
During the campaign, candidate Donald Trump stated that he was in favor of banning Muslims from coming to the United States. To quote: "Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on."   When I was asked my opinion of such a ban I stated that one of the founding principles of the United States is religious liberty, and that banning people from coming to the United States on the basis of their religious faith alone would be a violation of our ideals, traditions and basic instincts as a people. And in my opinion, such a proposal would be both unconstitutional and fundamentally un-American.   It is important, however, to point out that what candidate Trump proposed in December 2015 is very different from what President Donald Trump recently enacted through his executive order which temporarily restricts entry of any refugee awaiting resettlement into the United
A First Week's Report
Just a little more than a week after being sworn in, President Trump has proven he is a man of action. He has set a dizzying pace and shown that what he promised on the campaign trail is precisely what he intends to deliver as President. He has also demonstrated that his will be an unorthodox Presidency that will have bipartisan support, and bipartisan opposition.   In his first week President Trump has announced a federal hiring freeze, canceled the Trans-Pacific Partnership, resurrected the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines, announced significant federal regulatory reform, placed a moratorium on federal funding of abortion, began the process of repealing Obamacare, temporarily suspended the visas of citizens of seven different countries and placed telephone calls to dozens of world leaders. Regardless of what one may think about the merits of his actions, he is undeniably a man uncomfortable with idleness.   He has also made it abundantly clear that he will not al
