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

Books I'm Reading: October 2016
As an eternal learner, I am constantly reading. I invite you each month to follow along with what I'm currently reading or check back periodically for hand-picked selections of my favorites. Here's what I'm reading this month: On My Desk Grant by Jean Edward Smith
A New Cold War
Our nation has been fortunate in the past to have strong leaders who have recognized the threat posed by an aggressive Russia.  Virtually every president since Harry Truman has known that maintaining a strong national defense and a healthy skepticism of the former Soviet Union was our highest national security priority. But since this Administration has taken office, Russia has taken full advantage of the weak foreign policy of President Obama. While President Obama lauded the “reset” of our relations with Russia in 2009, it has become painfully clear that this policy has not only been a resounding failure, but that Russia has taken advantage of the Obama Administration’s naïveté.   In 2009, the United States and Russia came to a ten-year agreement, negotiated by Secretary of State Clinton, which reduced nuclear arms and weaponry.  The New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) was intended to replace an arms-control treaty that expired at the end of 2009.  The new
An Unlikely Alliance
When the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, was passed in the spring of 2010 it was done so with no Republican votes.  Since then, the Republican controlled House of Representatives has voted more than sixty times to repeal the law.  Republican animosity towards this destruction of our health care system is well established.  But recently another high profile political leader added his voice to the chorus of well deserved criticism of the disastrous consequences of Obamacare.   “People gained access to health insurance but wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half...The people getting killed in this deal are the small businesspeople and individuals who make just a little too much to get in on these subsidies...It’s the craziest thing in the world.”  The sentiments expressed in these statements aren’t a surprise - they are shared by a majority of Americans.  However, the fact that these sentiments were expressed by former President B
A Stalled Economy is a Failed Economy
Every American should have the opportunity to pursue and achieve the American Dream. One of the most basic foundations of opportunity is American enterprise and the ability for citizens to enter the workforce. Our economy has seen its ups and downs throughout our history. But since this Administration took office, the economy has seen more bad than good.   Recently, Speaker Ryan released a report on the state of the U.S. economy, and the results and outlook were dismal. In its latest projections, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that the U.S. economy will face very slow growth, if any, over the next decade. The current rate of growth at 2% will fall further to an estimated 1.85%, restricting American enterprise and providing little incentive for economic productivity.    I recently read in a Wall Street Journal article that many Americans are becoming “cautious” consumers, meaning that people aren’t buying and spending as often, and becoming more careful with th
