Boren on ObamaCare

"They can break my arms, they can do whatever they want to they'll never get my vote ever. I mean they'll have to walk across my dead body if they want my vote on this issue, this is so galvanizing in my district. I think the votes are not there and I don't see where we get them."

Congressman Dan Boren (D, Muskogee), talking to Fox news regarding ObamaCare.

Boren has been an opponent of the President's proposed health care bill, voting against it in November. Even so, the recent PPP poll shows that only 30% of his constituents think that he voted against it, while 32% say he voted for it.

That same PPP Poll raves about Boren's popularity in Oklahoma.

I think the headline for the press release on that poll from PPP was "Boren Looks Safe."

And the lead sentence in the release of the poll is:

"Boren is the first Democratic member of Congress we've found with an approval rating over 50% since we polled on Mark Warner back in October. 51% of his constituents like the job he's doing to just 33% who disapprove of it."

Funny how you keep citing a poll that has been circulated through the press as a positive for Dan Boren.

Maybe you missed this aritcle:

You know what they say "You are entitled to you own opinion, but not your own facts."
