You read it right... a NEW ARMY!... This monsterous socialized medicine bill that recently passed is full of hidden nightmares and none of it pertains to BETTER health!


Section 203 of the Public Health Service Act (4215 U.S.C. 204) is amended to read as follows:


     "˜"˜(a) ESTABLISHMENT.—
     "˜"˜(1) IN GENERAL.—There shall be in the Service a commissioned Regular Corps and a Ready Reserve Corps for service in time of national emergency.
     "˜"˜(2) REQUIREMENT.—All commissioned officers shall be citizens of the United States and shall be appointed without regard to the civil-service laws and

compensated without regard to the Classification Act of 1923, as amended.

     "˜"˜(b) ASSIMILATING RESERVE CORP OFFICERS INTO THE REGULAR CORPS.—Effective on the date of enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, all individuals classified as officers in the Reserve Corps under this section (as such section existed on the day before the date

There are clearly many things in this health care reform bill to be concerned with, but expanding the National Health Service Corps as some "back door" method to outfit a private army is not happening.

In my opinion (and I know that others may disagree) the main "army" that this creates are the additional IRS agents that are called for to enforce the additional taxes and penalties on small businesses and individuals.

That is my main concern with the bill - and the fact that we don't quite know what kind of unintended consequences will spin off of this legislative behemoth in the future.

This is not a private army. It is a legal expansion of one of the 7 Federal Uniformed Services (namely the Commissioned Corps of the US Public Health Service). The Commssioned Corps has been in existance since 1798. They have and will continue to work for the people of the US to protect and preserve the health and well being of US Citizens as they have for the last 212 years.

These will be the guys busting into our houses at midnight and taking our guns, under the guise of enforcing the tenets of the UN Small Arms Treaty. Health police my ass.

As the bill is unconstitutional and was passed by illegal bribery of senators, makes it an unconstitutional expansion of government as it is not in the constitution that they control health care nor is it constitutional to force Americans to buy insurance or else. that power is left to the people in the 10th amendment if it wasn't granted to the state.
What will be forced on us next. I think we all know.
