Recently, there was passed in the House and the Senate a bill which expanded the widely popular and bipartisan Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, which would expand national community service programs from 75,000 positions to 250,000.
Michelle Bachmann, yeah, the crazy lady of the House of Representatives, she who is afraid Pres. Obama is getting rid of the dollar, who told Chris Matthews last fall we needed to investigate all the members of Congress to see if they were Anti-American or not. And the list just goes on and on with this woman.
Well, she is at it again. This time, she is taking on the Edward (Teddy) Kennedy Serve America Act. This Act, which includes AmeriCorps also would create four new service corps. The expansion would cost about $6 billion over five years. The bill would raise the education stipend paid to volunteers to $5,350, the same amount as a Pell Grant college scholarship.
According to Bachmann though, this is not what this bill does. This is the Obama "Re-Education Camp for Young People". Appearing on KTLK-AM Radio this weekend listen to her talk about it. The host, also stated she wanted her to run against Amy Klobachar for the Senate.
