I'd like to see some sources that this is the same guy who wrote the previous Draft Bill. I'd also like to see sources of Republican officials'
statements before the bill was introduced that their intention was to bring it to Congress to kill it.
Thanks in advance.

to bring it out there, and we're going to put a nail in it." Tom Delay
Yesterday's draft bill — sponsored by Rep. Charles B. Rangel, New York Democrat — was defeated 402-2, with even Mr. Rangel voting against the
proposal that called for reinstituting the practice abandoned in 1973 when the military converted to an all-volunteer force.
Rep. John P. Murtha, Pennsylvania Democrat, and Rep. Pete Stark, California Democrat, voted for the measure.
Why are people so blind? It was so obvious what the dems where trying to do.
The worst thing about this bill was the Congressman that introduced it, voted against it, and only Democrats voted for it. Now the same idiot that
voted against it is bringing it up again. Is he going to vote for his own bill this time?
