Sisters and Brothers —

The first question of tonight's debate got to the heart of our campaign. Lester Holt asked us, "How would you think big?"

This country faces more serious problems today than at any time since the Great Depression. Now is NOT the time for thinking small. Now is NOT the time for the same-old, same-old establishment politics and stale inside-the-beltway ideas.

If we continue to stand together, we have the opportunity for our political revolution to achieve the goal of universal health care as a right for every man, woman, and child. When you’re sick and go to a doctor, you should not come out in bankruptcy.

We will break up the big banks, take on Wall Street, and make the economy work for everybody, not just a handful of millionaires and billionaires.

We will fight to reverse climate change. We will protect a woman's right to choose. We will make the minimum wage a living wage. We will make our communities safer from gun violence.

We will do all of this and more. But I can't take on the billionaire class alone.

 I need you to stand with me tonight. So I am asking you directly:

Now is the time for millions of working families to come together, to revitalize American democracy, to end the collapse of the American middle class. We must make certain that our children and grandchildren are able to enjoy a quality of life that brings them health, prosperity, security and joy — and that once again makes the United States the leader in the world in the fight for economic and social justice, for environmental sanity and for a world of peace.

In Solidarity,

Bernie Sanders
