** That's the title of the article .. not my title.

- WHAT does establishing a 'ready reserve corps' have to do with health care?
- Isn't the supposed purpose of this fulfilled by the National Guard already?

- I guess we know why Nancy Pelosi was screaming for people to just 'pass the bill and read it later'.

Isn't this a reserve force of health professionals in case of a national emergency?


A: No. Contrary to false Internet rumors, the new Ready Reserve Corps of doctors and other health workers will report to the surgeon general and be like the "ready reserves" in other uniformed services. They will be used during health emergencies.

Here is the web page


The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, enacted March 23, 2010, gave the USPHS the authority to create the Ready Reserve Corps, a new component of the USPHS Commissioned Corps. The purpose of the Ready Reserve Corps will be to have additional Commissioned Corps personnel available on short notice (similar to the other uniformed services' reserve programs) to assist full-time Commissioned Corps personnel to meet both routine public health and emergency response missions.

Have you heard about the trillion federal dollars spent over the past decade to militarize local police forces? That is the civilian defense force. Right under your noses. And they are itching to try you all out.

Why are you recycling old chain emails???

This was debunked TWO YEARS AGO.

factcheck.org...


Q: Did the new health care law give Obama a Nazi-like "private army" of 6,000 people?

A: No. Contrary to false Internet rumors, the new Ready Reserve Corps of doctors and other health workers will report to the surgeon general and be like the "ready reserves" in other uniformed services. They will be used during health emergencies.
...
The truth about the new Ready Reserve Corps is a lot less interesting than the conspiracy theories. Before the law was passed, the Public Health Service, unlike other elements of the government’s seven uniformed services, didn’t have a "ready reserve" – a cadre of individuals who could be called up involuntarily in times of need. What it had was a regular, full-time corps of 2,800 doctors, nurses, scientists and other medical professionals, which was the limit under law. It also had a reserve corps. But most of the individuals in the reserve corps, which was larger than the regular corps, were on extended active duty for the duration of their careers; in other words, they worked full-time, just like the regular corps, because they were needed, but the statutory cap prevented the service from bringing them into the regular corps.

The new law eliminates the personnel cap and brings the members of what used to be the reserve corps into the regular corps, which as a result now numbers about 6,600, according to an official at the Public Health Service who spoke to us on background.

And the law creates the ready reserve of individuals who can be called up for service by the U.S. surgeon general in times of need; the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina is often used as an example of an incident that might trigger a call-up.




This should go straight into HOAX.

This isn't 'an old chain email'. It was on the Steve Quayle website today.
Deflection = fail.

It won't ever end. The far left refuses to acknowledge it.

It is an old chain email...just because Steve Quayle is talking about it today doesn't mean it isn't an old chain email.

Logic...Fail.

Hilarious....Just because Obama is talking about raising taxes on those who gross
250k a year does not mean its new news, cause it's not. Hes been talking about this now
for months.


Logic...Fail.


Yes, for sure it fails when Obama re cycles his class warfare strategy....
as every one knows the real conversation is about the economy.

Wait....

What economy???
