President Obama’s statement on lobbyists

The Post reports on President Obama’s recent comments on 60 Minutes.

President Obama, who lashed out Sunday at “fat cat bankers” who “still don’t get it,” plans to gather the heads of major banks at the White House on Monday to urge them to make more loans and to accept the necessity of greater regulation.

“What’s really frustrating me right now is that you’ve got these same banks who benefited from taxpayer assistance who are fighting tooth and nail with their lobbyists . . . up on Capitol Hill, fighting against financial regulatory control,” Obama said in an interview with the CBS show “60 Minutes” on Sunday.
