Barack Obama Listens to Health Insurance Lobbyists and Ignores Everyone Else

When will Barack Obama admit then while he was a Illinois Senator that he worked for health insurance industry and their lobbyists and ignored the public?
The quotes are from the story ( In Illinois, Obama dealt with lobbyists, by Scott Helman ) at ( The Boston Globe ). Under the title it says. "But as candidate, he faults Clinton for ties." To quote from page 1, paragraph 2. "Over the next 15 months, insurers and their lobbyists found a sympathetic ear in Obama, who amended the bill more to their liking"
To quote from page 2 of 3, paragraph 3. "Most significant, universal healthcare became merely a policy goal instead of state policy"
To quote from page 3 of 3 paragraph 1. "Still, Obama's willingness to hear out insurers and their lobbyists is revealing given the posture he strikes today on the presidential campaign trail - that lobbyists, insurance companies, and other big-industry special interests have an outsized and polluting influence on policy making in Washington."
Read the story ( Obama's Record: The Truth Is Out There, by Steve Rhodes ) at ( The Beachwood Reporter ).
Read the story ( Barack Obama Favors Early Release of Sex Offenders From Prison, posted February 14, 2008 ) at Columbus Indymedia.
Read the story ( PACs and lobbyists aided Obama's rise, by Scott Helman ) at ( The Boston Globe ). If you believe that Barack Obama does not take money from lobbyists then you MUST read this story. Lobbyists bought and paid for both his Illinois Senate seat and his U.S. Senate seat.
