The Corp in the Healthcare Bill

Even though it is scary, you need to read this article at NoisyRoom. I would not have believed this if I had not read it from the bill myself (it is on page 1312). I believe that Pres. Obama got his wish and will have the legal apparatus to have his own private army not sworn to protect the Constitution. This concerns me more than the take over of healthcare and that concerns me plenty.

UPDATE:
Wickle's comment with a link to this Glenn Beck post makes me feel better. But the language of this bill (and the one it is amending) still creeps me out.

The Corps is, for one thing, health care. Not an army.

For another thing, it's already existed for more than half a century.

It's not Pres. Obama's private army.

Wickle, thanks. I feel much better now.

I did read the part where it amended a previous law (thus not created by Pres. Obama). But the language is still creepy especially considering the "Obama Youth" type organizations.

And for the record, I didn't think it was an actual army, just that it would end up being the legal apparatus to have his own private troops.

I don't trust Pres. Obama not to grab power any way he can.
