Sanders' campaign website listed the following issues:
- Jobs and the Economy
- Excerpt: "For years before the economic crisis, middle-class security had been slipping away. Wages are stagnate while the cost of living increases. Once elected, my top priority in Congress is job creation."
- Excerpt: "America has to out-educate the rest of the world to be competitive in the global economy; education will be a national priority. Higher education cannot be a luxury, it is an economic necessity."
- Affordable Healthcare
- Excerpt: "I will continue the work started by Democratic colleagues in Congress that passed the Affordable Care Act, which was signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010. The historic reform expands access to affordable care and establishes patient protections—because no one should ever go broke because they get sick."
