**Serve America ACT (S. 3487)Submitted by Answer1984With1776 on Wed, 02/25/2009 - 11:21
I am disturbed by part of B.O.’s speech last night concerning education and service. He mentioned making higher education affordable to all. But at what price?
”I know that the price of tuition is higher than ever, which is why if you are willing to volunteer in your neighborhood or give back to your community or serve your country, we will make sure that you can afford a higher education. And to encourage a renewed spirit of national service for this and future generations, I ask this Congress to send me the bipartisan legislation that bears the name of Sen. Orrin Hatch as well as an American who has never stopped asking what he can do for his country — Sen. Edward Kennedy. ”
Is this the ol’ carrot dangling in front of the donkey trick? We’ll give you “this” if you give us “that”. What kind of civilian/zombie force is he trying to invoke here? That is my question.
