Please check out the provision for a Commissioned Corps and Ready Reserve Corps. in the healthcare bill. I don't know what it has to do with healthcare but it sounds an awful lot like Obama just got his own personal militia.

At the very least, he got 16,000 more IRS agents. Lovely. That’s JUST what this country needs — more IRS goons.

Let me see if I understand this...are you saying he’d have a ‘national police force’ to make people do as he wants them to do, like the SS in Germany? Oh man...I thought it was like the draft for service (I read legal stuff and my eyes glaze over), but this is even WORSE!

Now that the federal government has taken over all student loans, is everyone who takes one out going to owe them two years of their life?

"The Track" AFAIK appears the euphemism for "medical student loan program". Still examining.

is everyone who takes one out going to owe them two years of their life?

This is just for medical school (all flavors).

And it's for 2 years per year of loans. 7 year degree = 14 years service.

AFAIK, IMHO, IANAL, ...

The previous version of 42 USC 204, for comparison:

§ 204. Commissioned corps; composition; appointment of Regular and Reserve officers; appointment and status of warrant officers

There shall be in the Service a commissioned Regular Corps and, for the purpose of securing a reserve for duty in the Service in time of national emergency, a Reserve Corps. All commissioned officers shall be citizens and shall be appointed without regard to the civil-service laws and compensated without regard to chapter 51 and subchapter III of chapter 53 of title 5. Commissioned officers of the Reserve Corps shall be appointed by the President and commissioned officers of the Regular Corps shall be appointed by him by and with the advice and consent of the Senate. Commissioned officers of the Reserve Corps shall at all times be subject to call to active duty by the Surgeon General, including active duty for the purpose of training and active duty for the purpose of determining their fitness for appointment in the Regular Corps. Warrant officers may be appointed to the Service for the purpose of providing support to the health and delivery systems maintained by the Service and any warrant officer appointed to the Service shall be considered for purposes of this chapter and title 37 to be a commissioned officer within the commissioned corps of the Service.
