John McCain's Health Records Must Be Released!

Why has McCain been so secretive about his health history?
The state of John McCain's health is an issue of grave concern for all Americans, regardless of political persuasion.  Given the fact that he has been treated for an invasive melanoma and other maladies, it is important that he release his full health records.

For a very brief three hours in May, McCain released 1,173 pages of his medical records to a carefully selected group of reporters.  They were not allowed to make any copies or phone calls.  Why such secrecy?  

We have enlisted a group of doctors from around the country to lead the effort to make sure the public is able to see and make judgments for themselves.  Secrecy is not of service to our democracy, transparency is. 

Cancer is a serious issue.  That's why 30 medical doctors have already signed our open letter telling McCain to issue a full, public disclosure of all his medical records.  Send this video far and wide to request that McCain release his full health records.  Ask every medical doctor you know to sign onto the letter, and be sure to sign the letter yourself!  McCain's records must be made public and soon. 

While McCain doesn't really care about our health care, we all should care about the health of McCain.
