LAWTON,Okla_Oklahoma Congressman Tom Cole says even though there's a lot of work to be done on the budget deficit, he thinks Washington is moving in the right direction.
Cole made his comments during a town hall meeting Friday in Lawton. Those in the crowd shared their concerns about Washington's scandals, health care, immigration, and sequestration. Cole said these meetings help him keep issues that are important to the people in the front of his mind.
"So again whether they agree with me or not they are constituents that I represent, and I am always better off hearing what they think and answering their questions than if I try to avoid it. That is just a mistake," said Cole.
Even though the crowd's overall comments showed they were skeptical of the government and its recent actions, Cole says he feels like republicans and democrats are finding new ways to compromise and work together for the American people.
