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

Washington Post: How you would fix Social Security: Sooner rather than later
Washington Post - Jonnelle Marte About a month ago, the Post invited readers to chime in on what they thought were the best ways to fix Social Security.  With the help of the Center for Retirement Research, we presented an array of 12 solutions commonly suggested for the retirement system, which is projected to be so depleted that it will be unable to pay full benefits by 2033.  Then we asked readers to pick the options they would consider. This week we’re reporting on the solutions that have resonated with the most readers. We’re tallying the results we’ve seen so far, but you can still check out the graphic and choose the solutions you think would work best.  One thing was clear from the first month’s responses to our question about how to fix Social Security: Readers want something to get done. Only 2 percent of responses were in favor of “doing nothing,” which would mean that after 2033 –when the Social Security trust fund is expected to be depleted– retirement b
Celebrating Native American Heritage
At an early age, my mother taught me about the importance of my Native American heritage, and I have carried that with me throughout my life with a great sense of pride. As a member of the Chickasaw Nation, I am pleased that November marks a special time to nationally recognize the significant contributions, achievements and history of all tribes. There is certainly a lot to celebrate this month. Growing up in Oklahoma, I was fortunate to live in a state brimming with tribal heritage, but I was also surrounded by family members who were actively involved in tribal affairs and who sought to preserve our unique history and culture. My great, great grandfather served as the clerk of the Chickasaw Supreme Court, and my great grandfather was the treasurer of the Chickasaw Nation. My great aunt Te Ata Thompson Fisher was a gifted actress, entertainer and Native American storyteller whose talent took her all over the world, including performances for famous dignitaries; her inspiring story wi
Many Voices, One America
When our Founders dreamed of what our nation could be and built the framework for democracy to succeed, their aim was not only to protect the rights of citizens, but to also encourage nationwide participation in government.  While some Americans have answered that call by selflessly volunteering to serve in the military, representing their communities in public office or contributing in other ways to public service, we all possess the unique opportunity to participate in government when we vote. Throughout more than 238 years as a nation, the United States has confronted many challenges. Without question, we will continue to face other obstacles in the future, but one thing will always remain true; we face challenges together, and we always grow stronger along the way. Like our Founders, the American spirit remains optimistic, ready to face whatever lies on the road ahead, and committed to building and preserving a better future for coming generations. Today, we live in a troubled and
Budget Outlook Threatens National Security
With mounting global crises that threaten our nation’s safety and security, we must remember that we face an equal if not greater threat right here in our own country. In addition to the rise of dangerous terrorist groups in the Middle East, the surge of unaccompanied illegal minors at our southern borders over the summer, the consistent bullying of Ukraine by Russia and the rampant spread of Ebola in West Africa, our nation is also drowning in more than $17.8 trillion of debt. Because the Obama Administration has done little to address our fiscal problems, our ability to combat or react to global threats like these is severely hamstrung and, without real reforms, could render the United States unable to address these challenges in the future. The state of our nation’s economy, especially the amount of debt we have and the rate at which it is accumulating, is quite possibly the issue that should concern our leaders, lawmakers and citizens most. While it is an issue that will requi
