Health Bill gives Obama a Ready Reserve Corps!

What does Obama's health care law contain provisions for a Ready Reserve Corps that reports to him?

Maybe I'm misunderstanding the language, but it looks like the President will be appointing the officers and using them for national emergencies. Remember, Adolf Hitler had has own army. I truly hope that I'm misinterpreting this bill, but it doesn't look good.

I will add that the bill only gives 5,000,000 dollars to the project every fiscal year with an addition 12,500,000 each fiscal year for training, so the program can't be anything like Hitler's SS. So there's no need to panic. It just looks really strange to me.

Read the bill for yourself. The section that discusses the Ready Reserve Corps begins on page 1310.

Here's a link.
