Hi Bob

There is an identical bill, HR163 which was introduced by a Republican
and has 14 co-sponsors.

National service would be a good opportunity for some serious
pork-barrelling, which appears to be the main function of governments at
the moment (not just US I must say, see the UK governments PFI

I think the support can maybe be measured by the number of Cosponsors 
listed  - None.

1. I don't think we have money for a military/national service so large.
2. we don't need it. 3. we have a very good military precisely because
it is a professional 
military (just my opinion).

I doubt it'll get past committee.

What's odd is that he's a Dem.
