Update: Join the Mad as Hell Doctors on Sept. 30th in Washington, DC

Are you mad as hell at the current health care situation in this country? Here is a chance to voice your discontent and channel your energy for change.

The Mad As Hell Doctors have been traveling across the country speaking out, educating and listening. They are appropriately angry at the current situation (which they distinguish from the destructive rage witnessed recently at Town Halls) and are doing something about it.

The tour will arrive in Washington, D.C on Wednesday, September 30th. We hope you can join us for their final stop – the White House.

The Mad As Hell Doctors will lead a care-a-van to Washington (details below), march and then rally at Lafayette Park. We hope you can be there. These doctors are for health reform but against insurance companes. They want to see the President and Congress do the best reform for the people of this country: enact a national single payer health system. It isn’t too late.

I hope to see you there! Spread the word!

    Without a Public Option there is no Health Care Reform. We, the hard working, tax paying Americans deserve the same health care insurance that our Congress, Senate & all other Federal employees enjoy… at our expense. How dare the party of “NO” deny us! Using their usual dirty-tricks on those foolish protestors – most of them don’t realize
    that they are benefiting from “gov’t run” Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans’ Insurance. They are being urged on by the Insurance industry,other corporations and the angry, deceitful Republicans who are against anything that this Administration suggests. It’s about time that this Administration take a cue from the previous Bush/Cheney “push thru anything we want” Administration & do something for us, the working class majority Americans. The sooner the better.
