Because FDR says, as Jackson quotes, that true individual freedom can’t exist without economic security. So what does Jackson want to add to the Constitution? He quotes FDR again: the right to a family to have a decent home, the right to medical care, and the right to a decent education for every American.
Didn’t they have something like that in the old USSR? You know, the country whose economy collapsed? Yeah, Jesse Jackson Jr. is a genius, just like his father.
I’d love to see Jesse Jackson Jr. debate Allen West. That would be spectacular.
P.S. I thought the right to medical care was already in the Constitution. Um, hello ObamaCare?
