From The Obama Campaign:
Today in Exeter, Senator Barack Obama hosted a roundtable discussion with New Hampshire Independents to discuss his commitment to cleaning up government and forging bipartisan solutions on the nation's most pressing challenges. Restoring Americans' trust in government, Obama told the group local residents, begins with turning the page the most secretive administration in recent history.
"I will run the most open and transparent Administration in history," Senator Obama said. "Because when you shut the door on the people, chances are you're not doing the peoples' business, you're doing someone else's…Instead of doing business behind closed doors, we'll bring democracy back to the people. When I put together my health care legislation, I won't do it in a back-room – I'll do it out in the open. And we'll make sure the voices of patients, doctors, nurses, and hospital administrators are heard over the drug and insurance industries. That's how we'll finally lower costs and make sure that every American has affordable, high-quality health care."
