It is much more likely that the Democrats will get the Covid stimulus package they wanted. This will disproportionately aid the more liberal states that are in dire straits due to decades of mismanagement. I live in one of these states.
In a less selfish direction I hope to see some real legislation relating to illegal immigrants; and more to the point DACA kids.

About the only positive I can potentially see coming out of this for me is the legalization of marijuana. Seriously, if booze is legal so should weed.
But, knowing that the left is in bed with big pharma, I doubt they’ll ever actually deliver on it.

Biden is comitted to wiping out student debt.
Which I have alot of.. and it's debilitating.
If I were to make the actual real recommended payments on my student loans.. it would be like $750 a month!
That's a second rent payment!
I have a good job... but it's not enough to be able to afford a $750 a month student loan payment on top of rent, car, insurance, food, utilities, phone etc.
Luckily the Studen loans are managed by a cabinet member, so Biden can write an executive order for loan forgiveness and bypass the Senate. It would wipe out about 2/3 of my student debt.
I could then fix my credit, and put my money towards a mortgage instead.
