This however, is not a rumor. It is actual legislation , H.R. 1388, that has passed the House and is on its way to the Senate.
You can read a more inflammatory description here.
Another description is here.
I tried. I can't make head nor tails of the actual legislation. The bits and pieces that I do read worry me. It seems this is an attempt to nationalize charitable work. Consider section 120:
‘(3) YOUTH ENGAGEMENT ZONE PROGRAM- The term ‘youth engagement zone program’ means a service learning program in which members of an eligible partnership described in paragraph (4) collaborate to provide coordinated school-based or community-based service learning opportunities, to address a specific community challenge, for an increasing percentage of out-of-school youth and secondary school students served by local educational agencies where--
‘(A) not less than 90 percent of the students participate in service-learning activities as part of the program; or
‘(B) service-learning is a mandatory part of the curriculum in all of the secondary schools served by the local educational agency.
In addition, the bill changes "clothing" in the authorized benefits list for the Civilian Community Corps to read "uniforms". Put the kids in a uniform and indoctrinate them. That does not sound like the American Way that I know.
It would behoove us all to study the principle of subsidiarity and resist this sort of federal government intrusion.
