1. financial transactions tax: yes
2. Social Security tax: some increase in the cut-off ceiling
3. other tax matters: no change, at least not near-term
4. health insurance: restoring the mandate to Obamacare; possibly a Medicare buy-in option for folks 55+; single-payer is not a politically viable model for the US; a Bismarck-style regulated private insurer model (e.g., Germany)is. More important long-term is not so much insurance per se as it is actually providing care affordably.
5. big sigh of relief internationally, which can only be good for markets
6. oh, also putting some of the teeth back into consumer financial protection
7. getting serious on climate-change, and in a way that provides economic oppty to workers in affected sunset industries.
