    Good start! For the new year, I would also add the elimination of voter restrictions and state legislation that restricts women’s access to reproductive health care. Down the line, public campaign finance is critical. Doubt I’ll see that in my lifetime, though.

    I like your list. But you should wish for things that are MORE LIKELY to happen than anything on your list. For example.
    1. Sasquatch makes a speech at the UN.
    2. Space aliens give a boost to the economy by shopping at WalMart.
    3. Mitch McConnell asks for unanimous consent to help the president fight ISIS because, in his words, “We are all in this together”.
    4. Mexico sends Donald Trump $ 3,000,000,000 in gold bullion as a down payment toward
    building a wall.
    5. Trent Gowdy announces that the deaths of Americans in Benghazi was a tragedy and not a plot by Clinton and Obama to kill one of their friends.

    You missed very little with this list. I agree however with Barbara, that women’s ( and men’s for that matter) rights to choose family planning is disappearing in much of the US.
    I would also like for the LGBT communities to have equal rights without continual court cases to access them.
    I would also very much like if the last year of this President’s terms were allowed to be productive by the sitting Congress. Much could have been done that was delayed, usurped, and stopped dead, in Obama’s first seven years – by one side of the aisle’s ignorance and hate.

    I could have wished that partisan attacks on Planned Parenthood might cease, but that most likely belongs on Joseph’s list.
