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 ...

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.

Cole Responds to FDA Expanding Regulatory Authority on Tobacco Products
Norman, OK – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced expanded authority over all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, pipe tobacco, hookah and cigars.    “The FDA’s announcement today that it plans to regulate all tobacco products is just another example of the Obama Administration’s regulatory overreach and nanny-state mentality,” said Cole. “This regulation takes an overly-broad approach to regulating these products. While we can all agree that tobacco products should not be marketed to children, I still believe that my bipartisan amendment, recently approved by the Appropriations Committee in the Agriculture Appropriations bill, provides the same framework for new tobacco products without needlessly subjecting small businesses to unnecessary regulations and without treating law abiding adults like naïve children.”   Link to Cole’s amendment is available here. ### Contact: Sar
Cole Responds to Obama’s Attempt to Bully Public Schools
Washington, DC – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) responded to the Obama Administration’s directive issued today requiring public schools to open access to bathrooms for transgender students.  “Regardless of one’s views on gender identity, President Obama’s decision to threaten school districts with loss of federal funds to accomplish his liberal objectives is outrageous,” said Cole. “His latest attempt to push his extreme agenda represents everything Oklahomans dislike about a strong federal government. It is absolutely inappropriate for the nation’s highest elected official to use threats in order to force his own views of morality and normalcy on states and localities, even if those views aren’t shared by the majority of the people living there.  “The president’s latest action is extremely inappropriate and perhaps unconstitutional. States are already confronting the issue of gender identity effectively in the ways that best fit the lifestyle, beliefs and cultu
Saying Thanks to Our Military
Throughout the history of the American military, millions of men and women have volunteered to serve a cause greater than themselves, and their families have offered a similar sacrifice to support them. Given their incredible and selfless contributions to preserving and defending the American way of life every single day, it is only right that we dedicate an entire month to honor them and express our sincerest gratitude.  Few Americans understand the weight of sacrifice for country more than our military service members, veterans and their families. I grew up surrounded by family members who served, and in seeing their examples, I caught a small glimpse of the selfless burden carried by our military to preserve and defend freedom. Since my dad was career Air Force, many of my brother’s and my childhood memories were made as part of a military family living on various bases in the United States and overseas. Those experiences have always given me great appreciation for the sacrifice
Cole Grieves Lives Lost in Tornadoes
Washington, DC – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after last night’s deadly tornadoes that tore through Oklahoma, causing massive destruction and claiming two lives in Garvin County and Johnston County.   “While Oklahomans know to expect the possibility of severe weather around this time each year, that doesn’t make it any less devastating when it comes,” said Cole. “I am very grieved to hear that the most recent storms caused major destruction and loss of life in the Fourth District. My sincerest thoughts and prayers are with those directly impacted across the state who must pick up the pieces from the monstrous storms. “As we know all too well, tornadoes can form at a moment’s notice and offer little warning. Considering how quickly we must respond and seek shelter to stay safe, I am grateful for the dedication of our local and national weather services, who keep Oklahomans informed and forewarned.    “In the days and weeks ahead,
