I don't think corporate tax cuts will go away. Sane people (all sides) have always argued it is a stupid policy to tax at 35% and incentivize companies to stash money abroad.

Likely on minimum wage increase.

Less likely but possible healthcare revision.

Agree with the rest.

Selfishly hoping for a return of the full SALT deduction. It's ironic that those who cry about "double taxation" of dividends and corporate gains should be so gleeful in screwing over almost everyone (Republicans and Democrats) in high-tax states through double taxation. Even countries, which derive no benefits from taxes paid to foreign governments, still allow tax credit or deduction for the foreign tax paid. You could argue that since states like California send more money to the Feds than they receive, the Feds are getting some benefit out of state taxes. (Less aid to state because state takes care of the roads or healthcare or welfare more, something liek that.)

To point out the obvious, (apart from the current president,) all nominees usually swing to the extreme during primaries and "pivot" (to use Romney's term) to the middle in the general election. So the Dems currently trying to "out-socialist" each other should be taken with a grain of salt.
