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

Funding Bill Maintains Resources for Active-Duty, Veterans
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 2029, the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2016. With $76.6 billion in total discretionary spending, this legislation provides funding for current and ongoing infrastructure and support projects for active-duty military as well as programs, assistance and benefits for our nation’s veterans. Of particular importance to Oklahoma, the legislation funds construction projects at Fort Sill Military Post, Tinker Air Force Base, Altus Air Force Base and the Oklahoma Air National Guard stationed at Will Rogers Airport. At Fort Sill, that includes $56 million for barracks renovation and $13.4 million for a training support facility. At Tinker AFB, that includes $12.9 million for an air traffic control tower and $37 million for KC-46A tanker depot maintenance.  “The special call of duty to
American Prosperity Depends on Main Street
After three full weeks of legislative business in Washington, it’s refreshing to be back in Oklahoma just in time for Small Business Week. Throughout my service to the Fourth District, I’ve had the great privilege of meeting numerous individuals who either own or work for a small business. During every visit and after every story I hear, I am reminded that American prosperity rides on the success of Main Street.  Whether as an owner, employee or consumer, Americans depend greatly on the success of small businesses. Owners work hard to make a profit in order to create more jobs. Families rely on income earned at a small business. All the while, customers get to shop the marketplace of products and services of seemingly unending possibilities.    However, 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 entre
Funding Bill Encourages Energy Independence
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04), a member of the House Committee on Appropriations, released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 2028, the Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2016. With $35.4 billion in total discretionary spending, the legislation provides funding for critical water infrastructure projects and maintenance. It also strengthens and protects America’s nuclear capability and recommends better usage and development of the nation’s resources to encourage energy independence.  “Especially in light of mounting threats abroad, often in countries from which the United States depends on oil exports, I am pleased that the legislation passed today points us in the direction of energy independence,” said Cole. “In addition, the bill prioritizes the nation’s security by protecting and maintaining our nuclear capability. Further still, it funds important water infr
Cole Praises Passage of Budget
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed S. Con Res. 11, the FY16 Budget Resolution Conference Report. This agreement balances the budget in 10 years, repeals Obamacare to lead the way for patient-centered reforms and provides funding to maintain a strong national defense. Passage of the legislation in both chambers will mark the first time since 2009 that Congress has agreed upon a budget. “The budget agreement that was passed today accomplishes two important objectives,” said Cole. “It shows that under Republican leadership, the House and the Senate can reach agreement and offer a common vision for the good of the American people and generations to come. For the first time since 2009, I am pleased to see both chambers participate in the process. Not only does this budget restore regular order and provide appropriators with a plan to guide spending, but the blueprint confronts some of the ve
