Cass Sunstein, Obama’s former regulatory czar, wrote an op-ed in Bloomberg News on the 28th assuring us that President Obama is “not committed to equality of outcome but a fair opportunity with decent security.”

He said Obama is interested in updating  a “second Bill of Rights” alongside the existing one.

His idea is to model it after Franklin Roosevelt’s economic Bill of Rights. [Obama frequently sees himself as one of the acclaimed presidents and in this case apparently it is Franklin Roosevelt]

Sunstein wrote that Roosevelt believed the Bill of Rights and the Constitution guaranteed  ”political rights” but did not assure equality in the pursuit of happiness, thus the need for an economic Bill of Rights.

FDR did not mean to change the Constitution nor did he mean that the SCOTUS should enforce it. His Bill of Rights was a political statement, Sunstein said. 

Sunstein emphasized that the national government is not to take control of the means of production to make this happen. However, while claiming Obama does not want to change the Constitution, he makes it clear he wants Congress to change the law.

    Reminds me of Bill Parcells addressing the Press

    “You guys are a bunch of subversives from within..”

    Sustein should not be allowed to talk without someone to give the counter arguement immediately followng to off set the damage he’s doing with his free speech rights.
