Cass Sunstein confirmed in 57-40 vote

Just who is Cass Sunstein?  He is the White House’s new regulatory “czar”.  Here is some information about this guy and what he believes.  The link to the full story is at the bottom of the page.

You know what sickens me even more is that 5 Republicans voted for him to be confirmed.  OUTRAGEOUS!  This is what is wrong with the Republican Party, and one of the many reasons I am not a Republican.  There are so many RINO’s – Republicans In Name Only.

Here are the five that voted to confirm Sunstein: Republican senators Robert Bennett (UT), Orrin Hatch (UT), Susan Collins (ME), Richard Lugar (IN), Olympia Snowe (ME), and George Voinovich joined 51 Democrats (including Sen. Joe Lieberman).

I hope all of the states they represent see this betrayal and remove them in the next election cycle or recall them if possible.

(from written by Peter J. Smith)

Sunstein advocates rationing based on “quality-adjusted life years” (QALY), meaning that the government would evaluate statistically whether a person’s life is worth the cost of living.

Sunstein is a radical animal rights thinker, who believes that animals such as dolphins and whales should have legal representation. Sunstein counts Princeton philosopher Peter Singer among his closest friends. Singer believes that children under the age of seven do not have sufficient rationality to count as human beings, and for that reason parents could commit infanticide.

Sunstein has also stated a desire to regulate the internet in order to fight what he calls a “system of limitless individual choices, with respect to communications, is not necessarily in the interest of citizenship and self-government.”
