Tell the USA the truth about our healthcare system

Avaaz petition aims to cause a stir in US media before congressional vote.

Avaaz logoby Avaaz.org

The Canadian health care system isn't perfect, but Canadians would never trade it for the one in the US.

Yet conservative politicians and greedy insurance companies are pushing lies about Canada's national system to scare the American public off national health care - risking Obama's whole movement for change and threatening his majority in Congress.

Sign the petition below and tell friends - huge numbers will cause a stir in US media and affect the debate, and Avaaz will deliver our message to wavering US Senators this month before they cast their vote in Congress.

To the US Congress and the American people,

We urge you to ignore the myths about health systems in our country and others that are being pushed by US healthcare companies. Our national system of public healthcare works very well and enjoys extremely high levels of public support. We wish you a healthy and honest debate about healthcare in the US.
