CHARLOTTE -- Doctors marched for health care reform near uptown Charlotte on Thursday. They called it the Patients Over Politics tour.
There are 50 doctors from 17 states in the Queen City, white jackets and all. They've been on the road for two weeks. They took this message to Tampa for the Republican National Convention and worked their way up to Charlotte.
They say they're here to clear any misinformation floating around about the Affordable Care Act, and get the politics out of the healthcare debate.
"We have folks on our RV who are Democrats who are Republicans, who are Independents. We don't even ask people what their affiliation is because it doesn't matter. For us, healthcare is about patients," said Dr. Vivek Murthy, President of Doctors for America.
The group also held a blood drive right after the march at Mt. Moriah Primitive Baptist Church in Charlotte.
