Texas Republican: Obama’s Using Libya To Deplete The Military So He Can Raise A Private Army
It’s time once again for a trip into the very special mind of Congressman Louie Gohmert, who spoke on the House floor last night about the Libyan situation:
It’s a bad bill. And then when you find out that the prior Congress not only passed that 2,800 page bill with all kinds of things in it, including a new president’s commissioned officer corps and non-commissioned officer corps. Do we really need that? I wondered when I read that in the bill. But then when you find out we’re being sent to Libya to use our treasure and American lives there, maybe there’s intention to so deplete the military that we’re going to need that presidential reserve officer commissioned corps and non-commissioned corps that the president can call up on a moment’s notice involuntarily, according to the Obamacare bill.
The “corps” that Gohmert refers to is the new Ready Reserve Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service, something that had been proposed back during the Bush Administration as a way to ensure that the Federal Government could organize immediate medical care in the event of a mass casualty disaster.
