32. It's fairly easy for me.

I like the rich and powerful paying more taxes. I like investigations into financial malfeasance. Any mention of infrastructure and manufacturing I like. I like the idea of looking into trade policies. I like investments in education and health.

I don't like what looks like more green lights for the oil and gas industries. I don't like pretending our problems have come from government spending and and over regulation, and pretending our corporations are paying too much in taxes when the real rate they are paying is around 14% and only about 6% of current overall burden.

Overall, I heard a centrist speech trying to sound liberal.
