The article reports that U.S. Senator Tom Coburn has loved to pretend that he does not like Congress. It is noted that Coburn has always talked about how he is really, a doctor who is most at home seeing patients at his Muskogee obstetrics practice. In addition, his crusade against earmarks is said to repeatedly put him at odds with some of the most senior members in the chamber.
