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.
it starts on page 1312.
At the very least, he got 16,000 more IRS agents. Lovely. That’s JUST what this country needs — more IRS goons.
Wait wait wait! A “Ready Reserve Corp?” In the ObamaCare legislation? Is there ar direct link we can post? I’d like to read it, but I don’t know where/how to find it...
Duh — figured it out! Duh. Reading it now.
start on page 1312

Funds appropriated under this subsection shall be used for recruitment and training of Commissioned Corps Officers.
Section 5210 on page 1,312.
Does this look to you like they’re ready to reinstate the draft?
Looks to me that doctors that won’t work with or under Obamacare will just get drafted!
I am forwarding the whole bill to everyone I know and asking them what this has to do with healthcare. God help us.
The “ObamaCorp”...I feel much better now.
Obama’s “Civilian Security Force” that he called for.
I wonder what else is stuck in there to take over the United States. This upsets me so much...ugh! This smacks of a dictatorship more and more every day.
3 (d) FUNDING.For the purpose of carrying out the 4 duties and responsibilities of the Commissioned Corps 5 under this section, there are authorized to be appropriated 6 $5,000,000 for each of fiscal years 2010 through 2014 for 7 recruitment and training and $12,500,000 for each of fiscal 8 years 2010 through 2014 for the Ready Reserve Corps
Where is the battle cry of the same people who fought the ‘draft’ back in the 60s? I just can’t believe this is the United States anymore.
