In health care debate, lobbyists thrive (most working to support reform)

The Times reports on the President’s approach to lobbyists in the health care debate.

Clearly, lobbying has been a major factor in the fate of the health care overhaul, which suddenly slid from the top of the president’s domestic agenda last year to an also-ran in a new year in which he wants to focus on producing jobs. Whether anything will pass is now in doubt.

But what the president did not mention in his address was that many of those lobbyists actually worked to support his health care overhaul, not oppose it.
