Tax cheat Charlie Rangel has introduced a bill to the House of Representatives that would require “national service” from every American aged 18-25. The bill, hr748, also requires women to begin registering for the draft.
Here’s the bill’s summary:
To require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 25 to perform national service, either as a member of the uniformed services or as civilian service in a Federal, State, or local government program or with a community-based agency or community-based entity, to authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, to provide for the registration of women under the Military Selective Service Act, and for other purposes.
The full text of the bill is not yet available on the Library of Congress website, but it will be posted here when it is.
Is Rangel trying to legislate Obama’s “civilian army” into existence? Thankfully, this idiotic idea won’t go anywhere in the Republican-controlled house.
