Petition from Avaaz members
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.
– Signed by 83,512 Avaaz members outside the U.S. since 12pm on Wednesday, August 19
