Oklahoma’s lone Democratic Congressman, Dan Boren, opposes any law that leads to a government-run health care system. Moreover, should a health bill pass he pledges to join that plan [1], even if the plan for federal lawmakers is a better one.

For his stance on the health care debate he was rewarded at a recent townhall event with applause. So was Kelly Glass who summed up much of the sentiment consuming townhall protesters this month:

I feel like a caged animal now. My freedom is going away and I have to go to all these town hall meetings and take off work and fight for my freedoms. You guys are up there in Washington talking and talking and talking and nothing is getting done.
