Second Bill of Rights
"In our day these economic truths have become accepted as self-evident. We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights under which a new basis of security and prosperity can be established for all—regardless of station, race, or creed.
Among these are:
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." - President Franklin D. Roosevelt
President Roosevelt was right when making this statement. These economic truths have become self-evident and we must enact these to be a better and stronger nation. This is the bedrock of my campaign. I truly believe that we need this Second Bill of Rights now just like we did in 1944 when FDR laid out his plan for it. I will work feverishly to see these implemented and passed to make sure every American is entitled to a good life.
