Buried deep within the "Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act" aka Obamacare, on page 1336 is this little jewel:

OK, Obama is able to handpick his own "ready reserve corps" who report directly to him and don't need to be approved by anyone else. All this without consulting anyone.
The sixty-four thousand dollar question is "WHY?"
Why, with the Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard, National Guard, not to mention state police, local police, first responders, etc, why, I ask again, does Obama need this? Perhaps, more importantly, why does he WANT it? What is he planning to do with it? All funded by our tax dollars?
This was billed as an affordable health care law. Looks like he very well may have established his very own private army. Think about it.
There's simply too much to distrust this imposter to allow him to continue to ruin our country.
Come next November, I'm voting for ANYONEBUTOBAMA. I urge you to, too.
