  • The purpose of the Ready Reserve Corps
    is to fulfill the need to have additional Commissioned Corps
    personnel available on short notice (similar to the uniformed
    service’s reserve program) to assist regular Commissioned
    Corps personnel to meet both routine public health and emergency

    to be used in time of national emergency

  • I do know one thing, Obama doesn't know how to pronounce "corp". Remember he couldn't pronounce "corpsman" ?  Since he can't pronounce it, I doubt even he knows what it is or what it does.

  • If it is nothing new, why the need to put so much FUNDING in there?


     How does that lower the health care costs of Americans?

  • According to Older, it's been around for 60 years, but the bill says this?


    Section 5210 of HR 3590 the Obamacare Healthcare Reform Law: Establishing a Ready Reserve Corps.


    If it's already been around 60 years, why "establish" a new one?  Sounds like a duplication of services.  That's what you get when a bill is signed before it was read.

    It's a reason to spend taxpayer's money on a bill that was suppose to lower health care costs... HOW does this lower HC costs?  Boondoggle?
