WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Congressman Tom Cole (OK-4) provided the following comments regarding his recent co-sponsorship of a resolution acknowledging the participants of the 9/12 Taxpayer March on Washington which took place on September 12th.

"Last month, hundreds of thousands of Americans came to D.C. for the Taxpayer March on Washington," Congressman Cole said.  "I was pleased to meet with a group of Oklahomans who made the trip to express their deep concern over skyrocketing national debt, the proposed government takeover of health care, the appointment of unaccountable czars, and numerous other expansions in the size, scope and expense of the federal government."

"I applaud the patriotic Americans who took the time out of their busy lives to demand a return to open, accountable, responsible, constitutionally-based government.  Their efforts to preserve liberty should be commended.  I want to thank them for participating in the march and making their voice heard."
