Convoy heads to D.C. for health care reform

Bus convoy heads to Washington from Raleigh

A bus convoy left Raleigh Tuesday morning on a special mission to the nation's capitol.

About 200 members of the State Employee's Association are headed to Washington to tell Congress they want health care reform. They'll attend a 10:30 a.m. protest hosted by Health Care for America NOW.

The rally comes as President Barack Obama issues a challenge to Congress. He asked them to get a health reform bill on his desk by March 17.

The President is even on the reform campaign trail trying to speed up the process. He will travel to St. Louis today to pass along a similar message.

Republicans say the President and Democrats on Capitol Hill are trying to pass a bill no one wants.
