Michele Bachmann votes to defund AmeriCorps, which her son joined
|Mother knows best.|
Guess she showed him who's boss.
Harrison Bachmann went to work for the AmeriCorps program Teach for America in 2009, which specializes in placing educators in troubled schools and communities. Both organizations are run by the National Service Corp.
I believe that there is a very strong chance that we will see that young people will be put into mandatory service. And the real concerns is that there are provisions for what I would call re-education camps for young people, where young people have to go and get trained in a philosophy that the government puts forward and then they have to go to work in some of these politically-correct forums. As a parent, I would have a very, very difficult time seeing my children do this.
Harrison did it anyway.
But mother knows best.
The GOP-controlled U.S. House has now voted 235-189 to defund the National Service Corp, for a $373 million savings -- when it passed H.R. 1, the continuing resolution to fund the government through the end of 2011.
