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

Cole Statement on Iran Nuclear Deal
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the Obama Administration announced that the P5+1 has reached an agreement with Iran regarding its nuclear program.  “While I haven’t reviewed the agreement in full yet, I remain skeptical about trusting the intentions of Iran and believing it will abide by its word,” said Cole. “Iran is a disingenuous and dangerous negotiating partner, especially on matters that closely impact the safety and security of our nation and allies. I am deeply concerned that President Obama gave up too much to Iran—a known sponsor of terror—in order to reach an agreement that he believes will be historic but may prove tragic for America and its closest friends in the Middle East.  “The only way to prevent Iran from building a nuclear weapon is through significant degradation of its nuclear capability. That should include fewer centrifuges, greater transparency and Iran’s surrender of weapons-grade urani
Dodd-Frank Five Years Later
Five years ago this month, President Barack Obama signed into law a bill that vastly restructured the American financial system. Brought about in response to the financial crisis and resulting recession in the last decade, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was presented as the means to protect consumers, encourage recovery and ensure financial stability in the future. Instead, the reality of Dodd-Frank has meant more rules and government regulators, fewer jobs created, slowed recovery and less American opportunity. Rather than streamline regulations or regulating bodies, Dodd-Frank has added to the regulatory burden with 400 new rules accompanied by unaccountable government bureaucracies like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Financial Stability Oversight Council. Supposedly intended to make financial institutions—particularly big banks—more accountable and transparent, the rules created by Dodd-Frank have caused confusion and cost much time a
Tornado Family Safety Act passed as part of Superstorm Sandy Relief Act
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday passed H.R. 208, the Superstorm Sandy Relief and Disaster Loan Program Improvement Act of 2015. The legislation included as a provision the same language as Cole’s previously introduced Tornado Family Safety Act.   Currently, the Small Business Administration (SBA) provides homeowners, renters and personal-property owners with low-interest loans to help recover from a disaster. Cole’s provision clarifies that SBA disaster loans can be used by homeowners for construction of safe room shelters within rebuilt homes.  “Whether it’s a hurricane in the northeast, wildfire on the west coast or a devastating tornado in my home state of Oklahoma, at some point every area of the country is susceptible to a natural disaster,” said Cole. “Not only is emergency preparedness critical for saving lives in the midst of disaster, but recovery and rebuilding e
Cole Response to Presidential Protesters in Oklahoma Waving Confederate Flags
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement online in response to a group of protesters yesterday in Oklahoma waving Confederate flags during President Obama’s visit to the state. “I was shocked and disappointed by those who showed up to wave Confederate flags soon after President Obama arrived in Oklahoma,” said Cole. “Their actions were not only disappointing but incredibly disrespectful, insensitive and embarrassing to the entire state. The unacceptable behavior displayed by these individuals certainly does not reflect the values and views of the vast majority of Oklahomans. No president should ever be confronted by such behavior, especially when the purpose of the visit was meant to celebrate and recognize some of our state’s greatest achievements. “The office of President of the United States is deserving of the respect of all Americans, regardless of how deeply we may disagree on issues or policies. Political differences are neve
