Senator Tom Coburn discussed the Senate ethics legislation and his continued opposition to earmarks that benefit members of Congress, their family members, or staff. He is ranking Republican on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Subcommittee on Federal Financial Management. Topics included his career in the House and the Senate, the Transparency in Accountability Act, making the “full disclosure” information available on the Internet, and the ability of members of Congress to check on each other. He also talked about being an obstetrician and practicing on weekends, saying the Senate will not allow him to be paid for this work.

After leaving the U.S. House he wrote a book, Breach of Trust: How Washington Turns Outsiders into Insiders, published by WND Books in 2003. close
