    Democrats have both chambers and the Presidency the first thing I want to see is not pushing for super big issues or huge encompassing bills. I want a string of short very helpful bills for the working and middle class.

    - Minimum wage rise but more importantly indexing it to inflation
    - NO different minimum wage for typed jobs
    - Rise the federal poverty line (for a family of 4 is now     
    $23,550)
    - Maternity leave
    - Federal minimum mandatory vacations
    and a few more
