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

Two Years of Accomplishments
When the 114th Congress began its session in January of 2015, many Americans had concerns about the direction of our nation, and the job approval of their Congressional leaders was appropriately low. After so many years of onerous executive overreach, House Republicans faced many challenges in the fight to block President Obama’s liberal agenda. There were many times that House Republicans have come close to making common sense conservative progress, only to be shot down by the president’s veto pen. Fortunately, our vision to help America get back to the agenda of opportunity and independence finally has a real chance to come true. We have much to be proud of from the 114th Congress, and I hope we can continue this trend through the leadership of the new Trump Administration. One of the first pieces of crucial legislation passed through the House in the 114th Congress was H.R. 2, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). This legislation permanently replaced the
Cole Supports Nomination of Congressman Ryan Zinke for Secretary of the Interior
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after President-Elect Donald Trump nominated Congressman Ryan Zinke (MT-At Large) to serve as Secretary of the Interior. Congressman Zinke has served in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2015 and is currently a member of the House Committee on Natural Resources.   “Whether on the battlefield as a Navy Seal, or as a Member of Congress on the House Floor, Congressman Zinke is a true patriot who serves his country with honor, distinction and effectiveness,” said Cole. “I am incredibly pleased with President-Elect Trump’s choice to nominate my friend and colleague, who I am confident will serve in this position very well.”   “Congressman Zinke is well-versed and knowledgeable about the issues concerning our nation’s interior from his service in the Montana State Legislature and his role on the House Committee on Natural Resources. As a lifelong hunter and fisherman, he has great res
Looking Back to Look Forward
This past year was one of great change for America. After eight years of President Obama, the American people elected perhaps the most unorthodox candidate in our nation’s history. The nominating process for both parties was unlike any we have ever seen. The Democrats nearly nominated a self proclaimed Socialist before settling on the establishment front runner, Hillary Clinton. And the Republicans nominated a candidate who had never sought or held elected office before.  And that candidate prevailed in the election by appealing to a constituency that Democrats had come to take for granted - the blue collar working class.   Just exactly how this came to be will be a subject of debate and speculation for years to come.  What is not debatable is the fact that Americans have become uneasy and uncomfortable with politics and politicians as usual.   In the past several years, our nation has faced an enemy unlike any we’ve had before. Following the terrorist attacks of 9/11, we b
Cole Statement on U.S. Abstention on UN Security Council Anti-Israel Resolution
Norman, OK – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the United States abstained from vetoing its vote in allowing the passage of the United Nations Security Council resolution to condemn Israeli settlement expansion in the West Bank.   "This action was a shameful abandonment of a long time ally that has been routinely berated and attacked by the hostile majority in the UN General Assembly," said Cole. "The action was made worse by Ambassador Powers’ gratuitous insults to the current government of Israel."   "One wonders if this action was a last calculated slap in the face to Israel by the outgoing Obama Administration. While claiming to support Israel, the Obama Administration has put Israeli security at risk with its flawed Iranian nuclear deal,” continued Cole.  "And it is the Obama Administration that has repeatedly clashed with the current government of Israel over diplomatic and security issues."   "Thank goodness there will soon be a
