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 Responds to President Obama’s Unconstitutional Gun Control
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after President Barack Obama announced a series of intended executive actions on gun control.  “President Obama’s plan to circumvent Congress is not only unconstitutional, his gun control plan shows utter disregard for the powers entrusted to each branch of government,” said Cole. “Further, his proposal would do absolutely nothing to prevent deranged criminals from committing horrific crimes. In fact, the president’s plan instead infringes upon the rights of law-abiding citizens and needlessly punishes those who haven’t committed any crimes. This hostility toward the Second Amendment has been an unfortunate hallmark of his presidency. “Most Americans understand that guns are tools that must be used responsibly, whether for recreational use or the protection of our families and property. While the president is clearly frustrated by his inability to push through legislation that is consisten
On the President’s Desk
Last week was one for the history books in Congress because it brought an occasion that was a long time coming. Upon the return of lawmakers for legislative business this year, the U.S. House of Representatives swiftly voted to repeal the president’s healthcare law. At first, that might not sound like anything new coming from House Republicans, given our more than 50 previous attempts to repeal the harmful law. But this time marked the first time the measure was also agreed to by the Senate and finally able to reach the president’s desk.  Ever since it was signed into law in 2010, the majority of the American people have strongly opposed the president’s federal government takeover of Americans’ healthcare plans. Republicans have long agreed that Obamacare not only damages the economy, but it also harms more Americans than it promised to help through higher premiums, lost satisfactory coverage and unfair mandates.  As we’ve seen throughout its implementation, rather than mak
Governing Differently
As congressional lawmakers return this week to get things done for the American people they were elected to represent, there is a lot of hope that this year will be different. In particular, there’s great optimism that it will be a year marked not by governing from crisis to crisis but instead governing by regular order.  Toward the end of last year, we began to see hints of such progress. At the end of October, Paul Ryan was pressed into service by his colleagues and was enthusiastically elected as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives by an overwhelming majority of the Republican Conference. Then with the support of his leadership team, both chambers finished out the year by working together to pass vital legislation, including bills to fund the government, make many tax extenders permanent, invest in surface transportation and repeal damaging education policies that concentrated too much power in Washington. Each of these accomplishments served as proof that even when the
Obamacare Repeal to be sent to President’s Desk
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Senate Amendment to H.R. 3762, the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015.  While this legislation isn’t the first effort made by House Republicans to repeal Obamacare, it is the first time such a measure has been agreed to by both chambers of Congress and will be sent to the president’s desk. In addition to repeal of the president’s healthcare law, the legislation passed today withholds funds from abortion providers like Planned Parenthood and redirects taxpayer money to community health centers. “Ever since it was first signed into law in 2010, the majority of the American people have strongly opposed the president’s federal government takeover of Americans’ healthcare plans,” said Cole. “Republicans have long agreed that Obamacare not only damages the economy, but it also harms more Americans than it prom
