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.

Cole Applauds Passage of H.R. 10, The Financial CHOICE Act
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the U.S House of Representatives passed H.R. 10, the Financial CHOICE Act by a vote of 233-186. The Financial CHOICE Act is comprehensive legislation to fundamentally alter the Dodd-Frank Act, enacted in 2010 in response to the financial crisis of 2007-2008.   “This legislation will provide regulatory relief to America’s community banks and credit unions and will consequently improve the business climate for small businesses. The 2008 financial crisis was caused in large part by big Wall Street investment banks. Unfortunately, when Congress passed Dodd Frank in 2010, they imposed the same regulatory burden on community banks and credit unions that were intended to rein in the excesses of the big banks who were responsible for the crisis. Holding small banks to the same standard as the largest banks ignores the obvious differences between Wall Street and Main Street. The Financial CHOICE Act
Cole Statement on the Retirement of Bob Stoops
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after Bob Stoops, Head Coach of the University of Oklahoma (OU) Football Team, announced his retirement from his position. Stoops has served as the Head Coach since 1999.   “Eighteen years ago Bob Stoops took the reins of a legendary football program that had fallen upon hard times. 190 wins later, with ten Big 12 titles and a national championship to his credit, Coach Stoops is doing what very few people get to do – he’s leaving on his terms while he is still at the top of his game. The Sooner Nation owes Bob Stoops a debt of gratitude for returning Oklahoma Football to its rightful place among the elite programs in the country."   "While I am proud of Coach Stoops' winning record, I am even more proud of the manner in which he has operated his program and the many contributions he has made to Oklahoma off the field. Coach Stoops ran one of the cleanest and classiest programs in America.
The Financial CHOICE Act Will Restore Balance in the Financial Sector
This week, the House of Representatives will consider legislation that will provide badly needed regulatory relief to community banks, credit unions and consumers. The Financial CHOICE Act (Creating Hope and Opportunity for Investors, Consumers and Entrepreneurs) will fundamentally alter the Dodd-Frank Act, which was enacted in 2010 in response to the financial crises of 2007-2008. Originally intended to minimize the risk to banks, it also had the unintended consequence of contributing to the slowest economic recovery in well over fifty years.   Dodd-Frank was initially focused on the largest financial institutions in the country, those with $10 billion plus in credit assets. Not surprisingly, its jurisdiction rapidly spread to community banks and credit unions. The financial crisis that spawned Dodd-Frank was caused, in large part, by risky, sometimes illegal, activities by the largest Wall Street Banks. It was appropriate to impose tighter restrictions on the organizations who c
