Statists never run out of reasons to expand government control to dictate how people will live. Obamacare was such an effort, of course. And now another great leap forward is gathering steam in Washington — Obama’s plan to make housing “more fair.” The big idea is to ensure that every zip code has a “proper” percentage of racial groups.

This transformational lunacy will have untold costs and all manner of unintended consequences. It is also flagrantly unconstitutional, since nothing in the Constitution gives any branch of the federal government authority to reconfigure housing patterns. Sadly, none of that will slow down Obama and his minions in the least.
