Professor Chemerinsky advocates a sweeping, truly revolutionary change in constitutional law to provide for a constitutional right to minimum government assistance from welfare/entitlement programs. He is to be commended for his uncompromising boldness and unyielding faithfulness to his convictions. Unfortunately, his Article otherwise consists of bad law, bad economics, bad social policy, and erroneous factual assertions.
