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.

Rededicating Ourselves
Our nation was founded on the idea that the government should serve the people, not the other way around.  In order to establish and protect that principle, our Founding Fathers established a Constitution which established a government structure unlike the world had ever known.  Their plan to have a government of three branches – legislative, judicial executive - has stood the test of time and has served as the foundation of our Republic. This system of checks and balances is intended to hold each branch accountable. However, that balance has shifted in recent years - unfortunately at the expense of the branch most representative of the people, the Legislative Branch. The Executive Branch increasingly relies on executive orders rather than the normal legislative process, and the Judicial Branch too often legislates from the bench rather than applying the Constitution as the Founders intended.   The Legislative Branch is the only branch where each member is elected directly by th

Protecting All of Our Borders
Every day, our nation faces new threats from enemies at home and abroad, and we rely on our government to identify and deter these threats before they come to fruition. How strongly we respond to these threats is up to our nation’s leaders - particularly our Commander in Chief. The past fifteen years have seen some of the most unbelievable acts of terror, and some of the biggest changes to our country’s national defense and foreign policy in modern history. And in these dangerous times we cannot lead from behind, we cannot turn a blind eye to the realities of the world and we cannot ignore our unique role in securing the peace.   In order to protect our homeland it is necessary that we fight the enemy before they reach our shores. Today, we need to protect every border we have – from our physical borders to our technological borders. And in order to do so, we must be prepared. Our country and its leaders need to take significant steps to ensure that every tool and resource we
Cole Op-Ed in The Oklahoman: Early childhood education crucial to building America's future
The Oklahoman - Congressman Tom Cole   Childhood is a precious gift. It's a time of constant growth, and every child's potential is limitless. Unfortunately, there are many children in underserved communities across the country, where they face an increased risk of that potential being cut short by limited opportunities. Early childhood education is essential for success later in life, and every state needs solid resources to reinforce the benefits of schooling. I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Save the Children Action Network's President Mark Shriver and was reminded of just how important the collaboration between public, private, federal and local entities is when advocating for our most vulnerable youth.   I know that Oklahoma values education strongly, and is constantly working hard to better its pre-K and elementary programs. In fact, according to the National Head Start Association, Oklahoma is one of the leaders in pre-K enrollment in the country. Oklahoma h
