I just finished my first debate with John McCain.
Millions of Americans finally got a chance to see us take on the fundamental choice in this election -- the change we need or more of the same.
I will provide tax cuts for the middle class, affordable health care, and a new energy economy that creates millions of jobs. John McCain wants to keep giving huge tax cuts to corporations, and he offered no solutions for the challenges Americans are facing in their daily lives.
I will end the war in Iraq responsibly, focus on defeating al Qaeda and the Taliban, and restore America's standing in the world after eight years of disastrous policies. John McCain wants an unending commitment in Iraq and fails to recognize the resurgent threat in Afghanistan.
Let's be clear: John McCain is offering nothing but more of the same failed Bush policies at home and abroad that he has supported more than 90% of the time in the Senate.
Americans need change now, and I need your help to get the word out about this movement.
Now's the time to make your voice heard.
Thank you for all that you're doing,
