Bringing Back The Draft?
One soon to be very powerful democrat wants to.
Here it says -
New York Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel, who is in line to chair the House Ways
and Means Committee next year, has renewed his call for the draft, saying the
war in Iraq is being fought by American soldiers who disproportionately are from
low-income families and minorities.
Over the weekend, Rangel said he would
seek passage next year of the universal draft legislation he has long sought.
"If we're going to challenge Iran and challenge North Korea and then, as some
people have asked, to send more troops to Iraq, we can't do that without a
draft," Rangel said on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday.
For some reason a vast majority of the news sites and broadcasts have missed this story. Imagine that.
Just an observation.
