Way to Go, Boren!

Dan Boren's the rep for our area and a Democrat, but I've been sitting back waiting to see just how good a representative --- and Democrat --- he is.

He's just passed his first test.

U.S. Rep. Dan Boren, D-Muskogee, said he is opposed to the idea, last weekend in Tulsa.

“It is important that we move towards fiscal accountability, but cannot attempt to balance the budget on the backs of our veterans,” Boren said by release.

“I will oppose any (emphasis his) budget measure that raises health care costs for veterans.”


Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., commended Bush’s attempts to limit spending, saying the costs of deficit spending will be borne by future generations. “I’m disappointed in the budget. I think the budget could have been cut a whole lot more,” Coburn said. “As we cut the deficit more, we’ll stabilize the dollar.”

note from Cookie: I think Coburn's been keeping a little too close an eye out for lesbians and boob jobs --- his poor little old brain's gotten all dried up from the heat and blown away on him.

Boren called the enrollment fee “a tax on veterans” that could force many in eastern Oklahoma off the rolls.

“A line must be drawn here. We must protect our veterans from higher health care fees and co-pays,” Boren said.


The cuts Bush proposed would hit rural areas the hardest.

“That’s crippling,” Boren said.

Boren defended the Social Security system where others propose personal investment accounts.

Boren said phone calls to his Congressional office from eastern Oklahoma constituents have been “10 to one against privatization.”
