Lobbyists Warned to Stay Away from GOP Meeting

"Top aides to Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) called a 'last-minute, pre-emptive' strike 'with a group of prominent Democratic lobbyists, warning them to advise their clients not to attend a meeting with Senate Republicans set for Thursday,' Roll Call reports.

Recounted one lobbyist: 'They said, 'Republicans are having this meeting and you need to let all of your clients know if they have someone there, that will be viewed as a hostile act... Going to the Republican meeting will say, 'I'm interested in working with Republicans to stop health care reform.''"
