OK-SAFE, Inc. – Dr. Doug Cox is a Republican first elected in 2005 to represent HD 5.  This House district is in Delaware and Mayes counties in the northeast part of the state of Oklahoma.

Most folks think of Republicans are being pro-life, limited government types.  Apparently, Dr. Doug Cox is neither.

The following was posted May 3, 2013 on Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma’s Facebook page at this link:

“Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma
Friday near Oklahoma City, OK
“I unequivocally believe access to birth control has emancipated women to control their own destiny.”
Oklahoma Representative Doug Cox, M.D. (R)
(Quote is from his acceptance speech for the 2013 Barry Goldwater Award at the PPFA National Conference)”

Cox serves on the following committees:A&B Public Health and Social Services, Chair
Appropriations and Budget
Common Education

Rep. Doug Cox is the House author of SB 640; Senator Brian Crain is the author in the Senate.  The proposed language for this bill expands Medicaid coverage in the state of Oklahoma, using Insure Oklahoma’s existing framework, and puts the already over-funded Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA) in charge of this system.

The proposal provides the means to connect the payer (in this case the state) to the patient and the providers.  Linking together the patient, provider and the payer into one connected system (data collectors all) is the heart of universal health care’s “health care reform”.  It is the stuff of Obamacare.

So much for “pro-life, limited government” Republicans.  Apparently, for Rep. Cox and Sen. Crain, that’s only the stuff of re-election campaigns.



  1. Tonight on Stateline, he implied the governor was not in favor of his bill. Neither am I. He and Rep. Shelton sure did not appreciate any of us extremists. You know, us Constitutionalists. If he is term limited, we need to capitalize on it. Know anyone?

    • Correction to term limits comment – Cox is term limited in 2016, not 2014. Folks in Grove need to run a real conservative.

  2. Could this be the reason why the OK GOP does not want those running for office under the R to read the OK GOP platform and comment on whether or not they agree with each plank? Just because a person SAYS they are a Republican does not mean they adhere to the platform, in whole or in part and the Party wants to make sure they give top cover to those with the spleen of a Republican and the heart of a Democrat.

  3. Funny how those swinging the freedom banner all the time tend to be perfectly okay with theocracy.

  4. Everything possible must be done to prevent his reelection.
