6. Overturn Citizen's United

As a corollary, institute public financing for election campaigns. Then the rest would naturally follow.

If I could only get everyone to remember that, the world would exist in peace.

9. Right now: Assualt Rifle Ban, because the longer we wait the harder it will be to get passed


But as far as the 'whole list' - Obama will have plenty of time over the next four years get many of those issue addressed.

14. With only one choice, single payer would make the biggest positive difference to the nation.

 

In addition to health care, it would be a boon to the economy, and once the people got it there is no chance whatsoever that they would let it go.

15. Living Wages

There are many things needed but that is the biggest. A person working should not have to live at a homeless shelter if something happens to their apartment due to the price of another. Nor should a person working have to decide between paying the rent and eating.


I saw a lot of that in these last (going on) two years.

16. can't choose. That's like asking would you rather eat or breathe?

Many of these issues are absolutely vital. I would like to add education.

21. Invisibility powers!

Oops wrong thread, but since I am here and voted other...I would say a complete voting overhaul. Same across the board, completely transparent. If we can't trust that who is in office got there legally I think it's gonna be harder to get anything else on that list.

22. I'd go for single payer healthcare

 

I mean, we're already spending way too much for healthcare in this country as it is. Transitioning to single payer would help alleviate so many of the healthcare issues we're currently facing. With this Congress, however, it's only a pipe dream.
