I know it is impossible to forget Nancy Pelosi saying “We have to pass this bill to find out what is in it”, and now that we are able to finally read it, some very interesting facts are coming to light.  After reading the section below will there be any more arguments about repealing this fascist runner-up to the Patriot Act?

Ready? Read it all.

UPDATE:

According to World Net Daily:

Obamacare prescription: ‘Emergency health army’

Force subject to ‘involuntary calls to active duty’ during ‘public crises’

President Obama’s recently passed health-care reform legislation includes a surprise for many Americans – a beefing up of a U.S. Public Health Service reserve force and expectations that it respond on short notice to “routine public health and emergency response missions,” even involuntarily.

According to Section 5210 of HR 3590, titled “Establishing a Ready Reserve Corps,” the force must be ready for “involuntary calls to active duty during national emergencies and public health crises.”

The health-care legislation adds millions of dollars for recruitment and amends Section 203 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 204), passed July 1, 1944, during Franklin D. Roosevelt’s presidency. The U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps is one of the seven uniformed services in the U.S. However, Obama’s changes more than double the wording of the Section 203 and dub individuals who are currently classified as officers in the Reserve Corps commissioned officers of the Regular Corps.

The following is the previous wording of the act as of 2004, before Democrats passed the health-care legislation:

It appears that WND has the research down pat, but in the course of running around looking for information, the Monster, of course, stumbled down a couple of rabbit holes. Will still keep you updated on what I found.

    Of course congress buried this. Queen Nancy will have to have these people in order to come into our homes and seize our weapons! What a pile of steaming dogcrap all of the dumocrats are!! Change you better believe in when we all start having to speak iranian!

  8. David R. Nemirow

    Get a photo of Obama, crop out every feature except his eyes, then look into his eyes. There is a saying that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Then be afraid: very afraid.

    Read the history of Hitlers takeover of Germany. Obama is following Hitlers blueprint.

    If we continue to do nothing and ignore history we are doomed to repeat it.

    Obama is a monster in waiting, you better pray that Americans are not dumb enough to give up their guns!

    Look at the young children recruited by Drug Dealers to become their assassins. Today we have 14-15 kids who play violent video games and will be old enough to carry rifles for Obama in 2014 when these young Brown Shirts are officially unleashed on the Citizens.

    The RRC is over 60 years old, it was established in WWII and under Lyndon Johnson. The language stating “as amended” should have given it away.. Obama didn’t create it. See article below for details.

    This is not really scary at all, nor is it a “private army” for Obama. What this bill provides is a base level of funding for USPH Officers who are no longer on active duty so they can drill and be properly ready to be called to duty in the event of a public health emergency, such as a terrorist anthrax attack or a flu epidemic.

    This change was recommended by the Reserve Officers Association see their site at: http://www.roa.org/site/PageServer?pagename=Creating_A_US_PHS_Ready_Reserve_0709

    The change was recommended because the USPHS had no funding for continuing to train officers in reserve status. So if they were recalled, they would not be up to par for training.

    Furthermore, the money allocated, a total of 17,500,000, is not much money for starting a private army.

    THis is not some conspiracy, this is actually something that is necessary and has been recommended for years.

    Where is the petition to repeal this idiocy? I have a copy of Soylent Green if you want to watch it… scary stuff is right!

  14. buckmead

    What happened to the National Guard?? It would be much easier to combine the above garbage with the NG, without having another layer of bureaucrats, etc, etc at twice the cost!!!! DUMB!!
