The Mad As Hell Doctors have arrived in D.C. today to rally for a single-payer health care system.

As the health-care debate rages on, a caravan of doctors arrives in D.C. today, to rally for a single-payer system. The Mad As Hell Doctors have held two-dozen rallies since leaving Oregon on September 8th.

Margaret Flowers helped organize today's event in Lafayette Park, just north of the White House. The pediatrician from Maryland says she's been "mad" a long time.

President Obama declined an invitation to today's event, and the Senate Finance Committee hasn't embraced a public option, let alone single-payer. But Flowers says the doctors will keep spreading the word that health-care has them "mad as hell"-and they're not gonna take it anymore.
