“GIVE/SERVE Act Updates”

From Michelle Malkin,

Quin Hilyer takes a closer look at the creepy national service expansion plans in today’s DC Examiner, and posts an update on one troublesome provision:

Between being first officially “reported” to the House and being voted on by the full House, bill managers stripped one whole section of the measure that created a Congressional Commission on Civil Service, thus removing the section that contained the language cited above concerning “a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people” and a possible requirement for “all individuals in the United States” to perform such service. The section could be restored during the Senate-House conference committee meeting. A new, separate bill containing that language has since been introduced in the House.

Alas, every last cent of the $6 billion in boondoggle spending is still there.

Also this afternoon: An amendment from Sen. Vitter to block ACORN from receiving GIVE/SERVE funds was tabled and ultimately blocked, with an early vote count of 53-43.

Sigh: Senate passes the $6 billion boondoggle, 79-19.

  1. Dear Ms.Malkin:
    I’m trying to break the iced-up brain lobes of my elected officials, though I fear, when I see the ever drifting direction toward “Big Brother”, I do not know what to do.
    Can we “fire” them please?
