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

The Oklahoman: U.S. House sends on defense bill protecting AWACS at Tinker Air Force Base
The Oklahoman - Chris Casteel The U.S. House easily passed a $585 billion defense bill on Thursday that protects Tinker Air Force Base from some of the Pentagon’s proposed cuts and promises more money for the huge maintenance depot there. The bill passed 300-119, with all five of Oklahoma’s U.S. House members in favor. It now heads to the U.S. Senate. Sen. Jim Inhofe, of Tulsa, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, negotiated the final version of the bill and strongly supports it. But Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Muskogee, has vowed to use all procedural means at his disposal to stall final passage because of his objections to a package of federal land acquisitions that was added by top congressional leaders to the defense bill. Still, the measure, which sets Pentagon policy for the next year, is expected to clear before Congress leaves for Christmas. Pay raises Most active duty troops would get a 1 percent pay raise under the legislation, though there are small cuts to
Cole Manages Rule for Omnibus Spending Bill
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) managed the rule on the House floor for H.R. 83, the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2015, and delivered the following opening remarks: Mr. Speaker, yesterday  the Rules Committee met and reported a rule for consideration of Fiscal Year 2015 Omnibus Appropriations Bill. The resolution makes in order a motion offered by the chair of the Committee on Appropriations that the House concur in the Senate amendment to H.R. 83 with an amendment consisting of the text of the FY 2015 Omnibus Appropriations bill. The rule provides 80 minutes of debate, 60 minutes equally divided and controlled by the chair and ranking member of the Committee on Appropriations and 20 minutes equally divided and controlled by the chair and ranking member of the Committee on Education and the Workforce. In addition, the rule provides the chair of the Committee on Appropriations the authority to insert any explanatory informatio
Cole Supports Bipartisan, Bicameral Omnibus to Avoid Government Shutdown
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 83, the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2015. Using the topline number and terms set in the Ryan-Murray budget agreement, the omnibus legislation fully funds the government at $1.013 trillion and prevents another government shutdown.  This omnibus spending bill includes full funding for 11 of the 12 regular appropriations bills through the end of the fiscal year. The Homeland Security appropriations bill is funded under a temporary continuing resolution until February 27, 2015, to allow the incoming Republican majority of Congress to address the president’s executive overreach and prevent his plan of granting executive amnesty to illegal immigrants before that plan is implemented.  “Today’s vote is the result of a bipartisan, bicameral negotiation,” said Cole. “While it has been a tough negotiation, th
Congress Can Work Together
Since our nation’s founding, we have been a nation of ideas, including common beliefs held by the vast majority of Americans but also stark differences. Especially in government, there will always be a number of issues that tend to divide us rather than unite us. But instead of focusing on the things capable of tearing us apart, it is important that we work together when and where there is common ground.  I am pleased that last week in the U.S. House of Representatives, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle showed that they can unite for the good of the entire country. As members considered and voted on legislation, there were items that showed a shared commitment to getting things done. That’s how government should operate, especially when it is a divided government. On Wednesday, the House considered and voted on H.R. 647, the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act. Using the same idea of college saving funds, this legislation helps families of disabled children also plan
