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.

Norman Transcript: Station at Central Park opens with fanfare in Moore
Norman Transcript - Kyle Phillips  The grand opening of the Station at Central Park was a time of dedication, reflection and celebration for the Moore community. This has got to be a record for a ribbon-cutting, quipped Mayor Glenn Lewis to the crowd seated and standing around the front walkways of the new facility Saturday morning. Food trucks lined up along the road, train conductors in full suit and character twisted balloons into dinosaurs and flowers, Sooner athletes signed posters and residents of all ages anticipated their first look inside. Gov. Mary Fallin, Rep. Tom Cole and Rep. Mark McBride got a pre-ceremony tour of the building before giving their remarks at a lectern set up outside. "It almost made me cry," said Governor Fallin, who remembered seeing the community through so many hard times over the years. She said she could imagine all of the children and adults who would be shooting basketball, jogging on the track and enjoying the farmers market in the coming
STAT: Windfall for cancer research sets off scramble for clout
STAT - David Nather and Sheila Kaplan When Vice President Joe Biden laid out plans for his major cancer research initiative in January, some public health advocates were alarmed. The plan to work toward a cure was ambitious, but there was virtually no mention of the importance of cancer prevention. So in phone calls, meetings, and a public letter to Biden, the advocates delivered the vice president’s team a blunt message: Prevention had to be part of any serious effort to wipe out cancer. By the time the website for Biden’s initiative was launched, it listed vaccines for cancer-causing viruses as a key goal — and said the initiative “seeks to accelerate progress in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.” It was a case study in influence, and perhaps a testament of what’s to come: a major scramble for attention and clout among cancer advocacy groups. With the Obama administration swinging behind Biden’s “moonshot” effort, and with the National Institutes of Health
Money Well Spent
Oklahoma is the proud home of numerous military and National Guard installations. We are consistently among the top states in terms of our number of active duty personnel. And our communities that are the home to these men and women in uniform are the envy of every branch of service. That fact was reflected last week when the House Appropriations Committee, of which I am a member, passed the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs (MILCON) Appropriations bill for fiscal year 2017. The (MILCON) Appropriations bill that was passed last week funded new and ongoing military infrastructure projects, and it also appropriated funds to improve the programs, assistance and benefits promised to our nation’s veterans. This year, the legislation required funds to improve oversight and accountability at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and included a significant investment for modernization of the health records system to ensure our veterans receive care in a timely manner.  Focusing
Cole Remembers Oklahoma City Bombing
Washington, DC – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) remembered the tragic bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing that took place 21 years ago today in Oklahoma City and claimed 168 innocent lives.    “Twenty-one years ago today, Oklahoma experienced the worst act of domestic terrorism in American history,” said Cole. “One hundred sixty-eight precious lives were lost, and hundreds more were injured and permanently scarred. As we sorrowfully pause to remember those taken, we also grieve with the many families, loved ones and friends they left behind. We remain forever grateful for the heroic acts of rescue and recovery exhibited by first responders, the strong leadership displayed by our governing officials and the extraordinary outpouring of love from communities far beyond the borders of our state.”   ### Contact: Sarah Corley (202) 225-6165
