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

Cole Responds to Department of Labor's Fiduciary Rule
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) responded to the attempt by the House to override the President’s veto on the disapproval of the Department of Labor’s definition of “fiduciary.” This legislation, H.J.Res. 88, would have nullified the regulation issued by the Department of Labor to revise the term “fiduciary,” ultimately changing the responsibilities within pension and retirement planning. “I am disappointed that my Democratic colleagues have not recognized that this Administration has clearly crossed too many boundaries,” said Cole. “The Department of Labor does not have the authority, or the expertise to regulate the financial industry, and frankly, it’s another attempt by the Administration to meddle in the affairs of the private sector. Changing this rule has unwanted consequences, adversely affecting many Americans’ ability to save for retirement. It’s unfortunate that our intention to stop these burdensome regulations and the President’
Cole Responds to Supreme Court Decision on President’s Immigration Plan
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the Supreme Court upheld the ruling on blocking President Obama’s executive action on immigration. In United States v. Texas, the President’s Deferred Action plan would allow up to five million illegal immigrants avoid deportation. “I am pleased that the Supreme Court did not overturn the lower court’s decision,” said Cole. “Today’s ruling is further confirmation that this President cannot simply bypass Congress and rule by executive order. However, it’s important to note that the 4-4 split decision makes the upcoming presidential election and impending appointment of a new Supreme Court justice more important than ever. As we look to reform our immigration system, we must take a structured approach by first securing our borders and ensuring national security. This process begins with Congress, and not with executive overreach.” ###  Contact: Teresa Davis (202) 225-6165
Cole Congratulates OK-04 Winner of Congressional Art Contest
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) congratulated this year’s Fourth District winner of the Congressional Art Competition. A rising junior in high school from south Oklahoma City, Katie Prior is the daughter of Karen and Dave Prior. She is homeschooled and studies art with Leslie Lienau at the Conservatory for Classical Art in Edmond.   Prior’s winning artwork, Firefighter Ray, was created using charcoal on Rives paper. It will be displayed in the Cannon Tunnel to the U.S. Capitol for a year and seen by thousands. A print version of the portrait will soon be on display at the Oklahoma Firefighters Museum in Oklahoma City as well.   In addition to her award-winning artistic talent, Prior was recognized by the White House last year as a Champion for Change for founding the Youth Trumpet & Taps Corps, which recruits and trains high school trumpet players to perform “Taps” at military funerals. Recently featured on ABC World News with David Muir, Prior was f
Combating the Root of Terrorism
While our nation continues to mourn the innocent lives that were lost in the horrific terrorist attack in Orlando, Florida, our leaders are pushing to know more details as each day passes. And each day, another disturbing truth is revealed. Unfortunately, the conversation has strayed from the shooter’s clear, ISIS-inspired motive. The blame has shifted the from shooter’s mind, to the shooter’s gun. The root of this evil is terrorism, and we must do everything we can to stop it.   Almost immediately, the shooter was identified as Omar Mateen. Shortly after, it was revealed that he had been investigated by the FBI not once, but twice, and had been included on their terrorist watch list. Following an investigation, the FBI concluded that he did not pose a real threat, and he was removed from its watch list. This blind obliviousness cannot happen again. The threat lies with those who seek to reject American ideals, and any suspicion must be identified thoroughly, and investigated
