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.

If The FAA’s Not Broke, Don’t Try To Fix It
Since 1958, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has overseen the standards and regulations of the airline industry. In that time, the magnitude and complexity of air travel has increased exponentially. Today, air travel is still one of the safest modes of transportation thanks to the training and professionalism of America’s Air Traffic Controllers (ATC).   The FAA is a federal agency, funded and overseen by Congress. As such, it is necessary to enact legislation to reauthorize the funding levels and update the policy priorities of the agency. Last year, Congress passed the reauthorization of the FAA for another year, under the FAA Extension, Safety and Security Act of 2016. At that time, some in Congress advocated to privatize the FAA and replace the federal workforce with private contractors. In my opinion this was a terrible idea, and fortunately the effort was unsuccessful.   Congress has always provided key oversight of the FAA and ATC to keep our skies safe and ef

Cole Position on Latest Efforts to Repeal and Replace Obamacare
  Washington, D.C. - Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after several media outlets reported that he was a proponent of abandoning Republican efforts to repeal and replace the broken system of Obamacare:   "Several media outlets have reported that I have advocated abandoning Republican efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare," said Cole. "That is not at all what I suggested. My observation was that many Democrats have conceded that there are problems with Obamacare and that we should fix them, not repeal the law. I challenged them to put those fixes on the table for Congress to consider. To date, they have failed to do so."   "Let me be clear. The Affordable Care Act has been a failure. It has increased premiums, reduced patient choice, and placed tremendous financial burdens on thousands of hospitals in states that did not expand Medicaid. I have consistently voted to repeal and replace Obamacare. I believe it is ultimately unsustainable, and th
