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 ...

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 Applauds Bipartisan Consolidated Appropriations Bill for Fiscal Year 2017
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the House Appropriations Committee released the details for the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (Senate Amendment to H.R. 244). This bill is the comprehensive appropriations measure that will fund the federal government for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2017. “This bill, which went through bipartisan negotiation, will fund the government through September 30th. The Labor, Health and Human Services and Related Agencies component, which I oversee, is $2.8 billion less than President Obama requested last year, and cuts total spending by $1 billion compared to last year. The bill was written with bipartisan input, and I am pleased that we were able to find common ground on both sides of the aisle.”   “More importantly, we shifted spending to our most important priorities, such as biomedical research, biodefense programs, education programs and efforts to prevent opioid abuse.

The legislation we passed today will provide a market-based health care system that will also give states more options to tailor their health care systems to better suit the needs of their citizens.”   “This legislation will certainly undergo changes
