    1. Tax
    2. Financial Services
    3. Health Care
    4. Benefits
    5. Education
    6. Minimum Wage

    8. Trade
    9. Environment
    10. Infrastructure
  2. A Democratic Sweep: This PowerPoint deck outlines Democratic legislative priorities in the event Democrats take control of the House, Senate and the White House. Though the deck focuses on tax aspects of various issue areas, it also discusses the dynamics of potential Budget Reconciliation legislation.
