Docs rally in Gary for universal health care

Docs rally for universal health care: "Medicare, the federal health care system for seniors, runs on such a model. But talk of creating a universal health care plan run or overseen by the government has helped spark protests across the country.

Mike Huntington, a radiation oncologist from Corvallis, Ore., said there's a difference between the rage shown at some health care reform town hall meetings and anger. He is one of the core group of Oregon doctors who started the Mad as Hell Doctors group. He said the doctors are angry that private companies are helping shape congressional health care reform instead of physicians and the public. They are channeling that anger into a 25-stop cross-country trip that will end Sept. 30 on the steps of the U.S. Capitol building. He said health care reform is the equivalent of this generation's civil rights movement.

"I don't believe we have a democracy if you don't give basic human rights," he said.
