In Breach of Trust, former U.S. Congressman Tom A. Coburn
explores how Washington resists critical reform by co-opting the
men and women who seek to change the system.
A congressional maverick who kept his promise to serve three terms
and then leave Washington, Dr. Coburn offers a candid look at the
inner workings of Congress - why the system changes politicians
instead of vice versa. Breach of Trust shows readers, through
shocking behind-the-scenes stories, why Washington resists the
reform our country desperately needs and how they can make wise,
informed decisions about current and future political issues and
candidates. This honest and critical look at "business as usual" in
Congress reveals how and why elected representatives are quickly
seduced into becoming career politicians who won't push for change.
Along the way, Coburn offers readers realistic ideas for how to
make a difference.
