Bill of Rights

In 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt suggested that the Constitution needed a second “Bill of Rights” that addressed social needs of the American people. He suggested the following new “rights:”

– The right to a job that allowed a person to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing for the person and his/her family.

– 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 a good education.
