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

Sanctions Alone Will Not Deter Russian Separatists
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04), a member of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, released the following statement after President Barack Obama announced his intention yesterday to impose more sanctions on Russia in response to continued conflict along the Russia-Ukraine border. Today, concerns surrounding the conflict in the region intensified after Malaysia Flight MH17, en route to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam, was shot down and crashed in Ukraine near a pro-Russia separatist stronghold.  “In the wake of today’s heartbreaking incident and following the president’s announcement to impose more sanctions on Russia, we are reminded of the gravity of the conflict and danger facing our friends in Ukraine,” said Cole. “In light of these events, it has become increasingly urgent for the United States to consider other ways to assist Ukraine in its time of desperate need. “While the Ukrainian defense force continues to hold the line in the midst of growing th
Ros-Lehtinen Introduces Fuel Choice for American Prosperity and Security Act
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), along with her colleagues, U.S. Reps. Tom Cole (R-OK) and Matt Salmon (R-AZ), introduced the Fuel Choice for American Security and Prosperity Act (FCAPS), a bill that would provide automakers the option of reducing their CAFE obligation by four miles per gallon if half or more of the vehicles they manufacture in a model year are warranted to operate on any technology in addition to or instead of petroleum-based fuel. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:  “Fuel competition in our transportation sector will improve U.S. energy and national security, increase our foreign policy flexibility, spur economic growth, and lower fuel prices. By providing more options at the pump, we can dampen the impact of oil price volatility and reduce the leverage of oil rich governments and rogue regimes that are unstable, repressive, or hostile to the United States and who use oil as a weapon to undermine U.S. foreign policy efforts. Fuel choice will also
President’s Temporary Plan Looking More Permanent by the Day
Over the last several weeks, we’ve watched a growing crisis at our borders resulting in a flood of unaccompanied illegal juveniles—all fueled by the Administration’s immigration policy failure and refusal to enforce current immigration law. Because of the president’s failure to send these minors home quickly or at all, he has now incentivized thousands more to come at the hands and usually at the high profit of criminal cartels.  Since the normal facilities are unable to manage the surge of these minors, the Administration last month turned to military bases, including Fort Sill in Lawton, for housing these individuals. Even though the president reassured the country through his usual campaign rhetoric that the space would only be used temporarily and as an emergency measure, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has already requested a time extension and greater overall capacity with the Department of Defense (DoD).   According to recent reports, in addition to t
Financial Services Appropriations Bill Limits IRS
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 5016, the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2015. This annual funding bill totaling $21.3 billion covers the Treasury Department, Judiciary, Small Business Administration, Securities and Exchange Commission and other related agencies.  In addition to providing this annual funding package, this legislation limits the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) through reductions to its overall funding and measures that encourage accountability and prevent abuse. More specifically, the bill upholds the First Amendment to the United States Constitution by prohibiting the targeting of individuals due to their religious or political beliefs.  “The Administration’s priority should be to lead the country according to the freedoms afforded to every American,” said Cole. “Regardless of the president or the partisan identity of the Administration
