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.

Cole Statement on HHS Secretary Price Resignation
Washington, D.C. - Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price's resignation.   "I respect the decision Secretary Price made," said Cole.

Tax Relief for All Americans
In 1986, then President Ronald Reagan introduced a sweeping plan to reform our nation’s tax system, and it worked. It simplified the outdated tax code which opened the door for individual prosperity and spurred economic growth. It also became one of the highlights of his presidency. Since then, our society has grown and the value of the U.S. dollar has changed. The working middle-class taxpayer today probably does not have the same priorities as they did in 1986.

It’s time that we adjust, simplify and reform our broken tax code.   Last week, House Republicans, the Trump Administration and the Senate Finance Committee unveiled the structure and framework for a tax system that fits the 21st century. It is a plan that will deliver economic growth, incentivize the American taxpayer, provide relief for small businesses and
