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. 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

President Trump's Defining Moment
President Trump was elected in no small degree based on the economic and national security anxieties facing millions of working class Americans. He correctly identified with, and gave voice to, their anger and their frustration. Consequently, the tone of his campaign and the early days of his presidency were not exactly upbeat in tone. However, his Joint Address to Congress last week was a sharp and welcome change. President Trump’s Joint Address to Congress was uplifting, visionary and yes, presidential. To many, it was the best speech he has given since becoming a candidate for president. There were many issues I had hoped President Trump would address, and while he did not hit all of them, I thought the speech was a resounding success. President Trump’s speech was powerful, and I think both Democrats and Republicans were encouraged by the plans he outlined for America. I believe everyday Americans who tuned in to listen to his speech felt similarly. “I am here tonight
Cole Mourns Loss of Mike McCarville
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement on the passing of Oklahoma journalist, Mike McCarville.   "I was saddened to learn of the death of my dear friend Mike McCarville,” said Cole. “Mike was a journalist, a commentator, a pioneering television and radio personality and a talented political operative.  Over the years we worked together in many campaigns, and he was my communications advisor when I served as Republican State Chairman."   “Mike was a mentor, a role model and a colleague. He advised generations of Oklahoma politicians and political operatives. And he held elected officials of both parties accountable for the promises they made to the voters of Oklahoma. Most of all, however, Mike was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. In a profession that is hard on families, he was first and foremost a family man. My sympathies go out to his lovely wife Ann and his entire family. We lost a good man and a
Cole Applauds Passage of the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2017
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 1301, the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2017 by a vote of 371-48. This bill will provide the funding for the Department of Defense and related programs authorized through the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2017.   Overall, the bill provides $577.9 billion for our nation’s defense, including $516.1 billion in discretionary funding and $61.8 billion in Overseas Contingency Operations and the Global War on Terrorism funding. Further, it is $5.2 billion over the Fiscal Year 2016 current enacted levels.                                   “Congress has no higher priority than providing for the national defense through a well-trained, well-equipped military,” said Cole. “This legislation will help start the restoration of our defense capabilities which had been allowed to
Healthcare for Every American
In the past seven years, Congress has voted to repeal Obamacare more than 60 times. However, repeal was never successful due to obstructionists in the U.S. Senate and a certain veto by President Obama. With a new President and conservative leadership in Congress, repeal of Obamacare is now well within our reach.   Last week, two key House committees passed the first draft of the American Health Care Act, setting the stage for the ultimate repeal and replacement of Obamacare. Like any complex public policy initiative, this initial foundation for repeal and replace was met with many questions and apprehensions. But through regular order, this legislation will be refined and improved as it moves through the committee process. Unlike Obamacare - of which Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi famously said, “We have to pass the bill to see what is in it" - this legislation will be crafted and improved in a transparent way that will allow the American people and their elected representatives to
