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 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 Supports the Save American Workers Act
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 30, the Save American Workers Act. The legislation repeals the portion in Obamacare that defines 30 hours per week as full-time for employees and replaces it with the traditional American workweek of 40 hours. Cole is an original co-sponsor of the legislation. “Ever since Obamacare was rammed through the Democrat-led Congress in 2010, implementation of the legislation has proven unworkable, unfair and unaffordable for the American people,” said Cole. “One such unaffordable provision includes defining full-time employment as 30 hours per week, rather than the traditional American workweek of 40 hours. This 30-hour definition requires employers to cover previously-unbudgeted insurance costs or pay a penalty. Not only does it hurt employers faced with unexpected insurance costs, but it prevents them from creating new jobs and threatens them from main
Cole Statement on Vote to Approve Keystone Construction
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 3, the Keystone XL Pipeline Act. Passage of this legislation marks the 10th time that the House has voted to remove the presidential permit requirement that has prevented TransCanada from starting construction of the northern route of the pipeline.  Since TransCanada submitted its application six years ago, President Barack Obama has refused to make a decision one way or another. This legislation would force approval and remove the permit requirement, thus creating new jobs (at no cost to taxpayers) and promoting a positive business relationship with our friends in Canada that would lessen America’s dangerous dependence on foreign oil.  “I am pleased that the House has again demonstrated its commitment to American jobs and workers by addressing the president’s inaction on Keystone,” said Cole. “For more than six years, TransCanada has waited
Cole: “Why is the president involved in Keystone decision at all?”
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) discussed the president’s failure to approve construction of TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline with Congressman Kevin Cramer (ND-At Large) today during a Rules Committee meeting. For more than six years, President Obama has refused to make a decision either way on the privately-funded construction project; he recently announced that he will veto legislation to force approval of Keystone when it reaches his desk. Video of the full discussion is available above. Selected quotes from Congressman Cole during the meeting are available below: “It’s okay for America to run a pipeline the entire length of Canada with their consent and their support, but it’s wrong for Canada to be able to run a pipeline through America? “I look at the states through which the pipeline runs, and I happen to look at where the support for the pipeline is. And it’s amazing to me that almost every representative and senator in the state where the pi
Keystone is Opportunity to Help American People
Despite claims that he wants to work with the new Congress and enact positive reforms for the American people, President Obama certainly isn’t starting off the year in a way that reflects such intentions. By already threatening to veto any legislation on Keystone XL that makes it to his desk, the president is choosing environmental extremists over hardworking Americans who would benefit from the thousands of jobs created.  Since TransCanada submitted its application to build Keystone XL more than six years ago, the president has refused to make a decision one way or another. If approved for construction, the $7 billion construction project would create around 42,100 direct and indirect jobs, adding around $2 billion to the American economy. The pipeline could move up to 830,000 barrels of oil per day once completed; as a point of reference, we currently import about half of that amount from the Middle East.  In an effort to see this project through, TransCanada has fully cooperat
