As I've said, the only person I know of who's gunning for a reinstatement of the draft is Charlie Rangel, and he has a 'D', not an 'R', after his name.
WASHINGTON – Americans would have to sign up for a new military draft after turning 18 under a bill the incoming chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says he will introduce next year.
Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., said Sunday he sees his idea as a way to deter politicians from launching wars.
We'll see how that flies with Mr. and Mrs. America and the "it's all about me" entitlement crowd. Everyone joins the military so that Chuckles can make a political point.
You know what might be even better? Instead of serving in the military, everyone 18-26 would have to serve a year in Congress. See ya, Rangel.
