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

Small Businesses Matter to American Families
After six weeks primarily devoted to legislative business in Washington, it was a welcome change to have a full week in Oklahoma devoted to meetings with constituents. When I travel across the Fourth District, I am always inspired by the spirit and can-do attitude of our small business entrepreneurs. And it serves as a reminder that Congress should do whatever it can to lift the regulatory and tax burdens that hinder the success of America’s small businesses. Because when small businesses succeed, American families succeed as well.  Our country’s ability to prosper depends heavily on Americans who work for and own small businesses. Unfortunately, as many Oklahomans know far too well, those working on Main Street are often met with excessive regulatory and tax barriers that choke innovation and discourage job creation. Too often, these regulations create a barrier to entrepreneurs from entering the marketplace in the first place. That not only shatters the American Dream for a woul
House Passes Senate Version of Keystone Approval Bill
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed S.1, the Keystone XL Pipeline Approval Act. This Senate-passed legislation would force construction approval of the Keystone XL pipeline and remove the presidential permit requirement. In light of today’s passage in the House, the bill will be sent to the president’s desk for consideration.  “At the start of the new Congress last month, the House immediately voted again on legislation to address the president’s inaction on Keystone and to release thousands of jobs to the American people,” said Cole. “More than six years since TransCanada’s application was first submitted and with studies showing no significant impact on the environment, it is high time for President Obama to approve construction of the northern route of the pipeline.  “While the president has stated his intention to veto this bipartisan, bicameral legislation, I hope that h
The Oklahoman: President Obama asks Congress for authority to attack Islamic State
The Oklahoman - Chris Casteel President Barack Obama on Wednesday asked Congress for official permission to use military force against the Islamic State, but some Democrats called the president’s proposal too broad and Republicans complained of its limitations. Six months after the United States military began conducting air strikes against the brutal Islamic organization that has occupied land in Iraq and Syria, the president requested a three-year authorization specific to the conflict. The administration has been operating under the 2001 resolution authorizing force against al-Qaida and the 2002 resolution that allowed the invasion of Iraq. The president’s proposed language would not allow the use of U.S. forces “in enduring offensive ground combat operations.” Obama — accompanied by Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel — made brief remarks at the White House about his request, which Congress may begin debating late th
Israel Always a Welcome Friend
In the global war on terror, the United States has no better ally and friend than the State of Israel.  Surrounded by enemies intent on destroying them, Israel has more at stake in this war than any other nation in the world.  Moreover, our two nations share a commitment to living peaceably, fighting terrorism, defending freedom and protecting democracy. As terrorist activities in the Middle East become more barbaric, we must continue to value, nurture and respect our relationship with Israel, still our most reliable ally in the region.  In the interest of showing support for the State of Israel, toward the end of last month House Speaker John Boehner extended an invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint bipartisan meeting of Congress. That invitation was accepted and is currently scheduled to take place before lawmakers of both chambers in early March. Since hearing about Netanyahu’s upcoming address, President Barack Obama has behaved petulantly
