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 Statement on Passage of H.J. Res. 124
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed H.J. Res. 124, Continuing Appropriations Resolution for 2015. This legislation removes the threat of a government shutdown by providing funding through December 11, 2014; it also includes an amendment that approves the president’s request for authorization to combat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). “I am pleased that the House acted responsibly today by passing a continuing resolution that funds the government through December 11 and removes the threat of another government shutdown,” said Cole. “In wake of the rise of ISIL and in response to the president’s address to the nation last week, I am encouraged that lawmakers worked in a bipartisan manner to provide the authority he requested to fight ISIL. While I don’t think it’s nearly sufficient for destroying this dangerous enemy, I believe that it’s important for Congress to act i
Cole Statement on Air Strikes in Syria to Combat ISIL
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement in response to President Barack Obama’s ordering of air strikes to combat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).  “As I’ve said earlier, ISIL represents a clear and present danger to the safety and security of the United States,” said Cole. “If this terrorist organization continues to function, we risk the threat of the establishment of a terrorist state in the region. Neither the United States nor our Allies in the region can tolerate that becoming a reality.  “I am pleased that the president has led and shown the world American strength, resolve and determination to destroy ISIL by targeting its strongholds in the region through air strikes. He has done so prudently by encouraging the participation and building of a coalition with Arab allies, who are also in danger if ISIL is not destroyed.   “Just as the president has built a coalition abroad, I hope that he will work to bu
Op-Ed in Journal Record: Ex-Im Bank benefits American economy
Journal Record - Congressman Tom Cole America was built by the hands of innovators and entrepreneurs, and it remains supported by likeminded individuals who desire for America to remain great. Our land is still filled with an abundance of untapped resources and human intellect that, when allowed to flourish, only strengthens our presence and standing in the world. Even in tough economic times, the American brand is in high demand, and our public policy should seek to keep it there. Especially as we navigate the waters of a still-struggling economy, the effects of potential solutions upon job creators and providers should be carefully considered. Whether in the short term or long term, any solutions should obviously help rather than hurt hardworking American business owners, workers and innovators. Our country’s ability to prosper depends heavily upon the success of businesses, particularly small businesses. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, an estimated two out of
Ex-Im Benefits Small Business
As we navigate the waters of a still-struggling economy, the impact of potential solutions upon job creators and providers should be carefully considered. Whether in the short-term or long-term, any solutions should obviously help rather than hurt hardworking Americans. When the economic environment allows business owners and workers to thrive, the whole country feels the benefit. Our country’s ability to prosper depends heavily upon the success of small businesses, and Oklahoma contains a variety of businesses that contribute positively to economic recovery. Some of Oklahoma’s business owners whose products reach an international market have done so with the assistance of the Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im).  According to its charter, Ex-Im is the official export credit agency of the United States. As it was established in 1934, Ex-Im helps make potential overseas sales opportunities a reality by financing these transactions. Throughout its lifespan, it has facilitated more than $567
