The GIVE Act: 'Anatomy of a scam'

That's what Carter Clews of Americans for Limited Government calls the GIVE (Generations Invigorating Volunteers and Education) Act:
[Supporters of the bill] would tell you that all they’re trying to do is help 250,000 wonderful young unemployed volunteers find a way to serve the country. And who could possibly oppose that?
Well, perhaps, the wonderful older employed workers who are going to be forced to foot the bill – beginning at $5 billion for starters and ending at God knows where.
Read the whole thing.


  1. You know what that article needed? More rhetorical flourishes.

  2. I don't think I saw anything in the article talking about “Public Allies,” When you go on the Public Allies site it refers to their signature “AmeriCorps Program.”

    Barack Obama was on the founding Board of Directors of Public Allies.

    Is anyone in the press EVER going to report that?
