Washington, DC – -( Senator John Cornyn (R- TX) has blocked President Obama’s choice for a powerful regulatory position in the White House because of the nominee’s support for animal rights.

He’s done his part, now sportsmen need to do theirs. Your support is needed to make sure the block, known technically as a “hold,” stays in place.

Cass Sunstein, the president’s pick to head the powerful Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), has been an advocate for the animal rights movement and is an anti-hunter. As a part of the federal budget office, OIRA has extensive authority to block rules, including those that protect hunting and conservation.

Sunstein claims that, “we might ban hunting altogether, at least if it’s sole purpose is human recreation.” He also supports allowing lawsuits on behalf of animals, a right currently only extended to human beings.

That is why it is crucial that the block remains in place.

Take Action!
Sportsmen nationwide should contact their U.S. senators and ask them to support Sen. Cornyn’s hold on Sunstein. Let them know that you are deeply concerned by Sunstein’s radical statements about hunting and animal rights. Ask your Senator to join Senator Cornyn by blocking this appointment.

When you are for terrorist rights and against unborn children's rights,when you are for this idiot Cass Sunstein and for animals rights,guess who you are?

You are referred to as the Messiah Obama.

America,how is the hopey-changey thing workin for ya?

I'm Republican,cause we can't all be on welfare!!!


He'll be confirmed. Don't waste your time trying to block it.

Responsible people everywhere are finally realizing that profit-margins are not the be-all and end-all and they're changing their views on animals, the environment, and human rights.

If Obama can appoint good people like Cass Sunstein to offset the damage done by the Bush Administration catering to greedy industry and lobbyists for the past 8 yrs., then more power to him — maybe there's hope for us all yet!
