Regulatory Chief Wants Second Bill of Rights

Cass Sunstein, the 'regulatory czar' in the Obama administration, pushes socialism in America to a new extreme. In the 2004 book The Second Bill of Rights: FDR'S Unfinished Revolution and Why We Need It More than Ever, he advocated these points:

* The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation;

* The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;

* The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living;

* The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;

* The right of every family to a decent home;

* The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;

* The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment;

* The right to a good education.

Although he says in the book he's not advocating putting it in the Constitution, he does admit "if the nation becomes committed to certain rights, they may migrate into the Constitution itself."
