Obama fails in his promise to stop the overt influence of lobbyists in drawing up legislation

I was an idiot to believe him, but I really did think Obama meant what he said on the campaign trail about cleaning up Washington by ridding it of the influential lobbyists that craft legislation in our nation’s capitol. But according to Frank Rich’s latest column, and the shape of health care reform bills, it appears Obama has done nothing to stop the corrupt power of corporate money in DC.

Oh well, maybe next time we’ll elect a president and members of Congress that aren’t bought and paid for, but then again, is that really an option?

Read Frank Rich’s column and then cry yourself to sleep tonight.
