Obama's Civilian Force

I do not expect politicians to carry out all of their promises. Even with a Congress under Democratic control, Obama would have trouble carrying out all of his promises even if he seriously tried.

His promise that worries me most is the proposed Universal Voluntary Public Service. This proposal is huge and received too little scrutiny.

Although infeasible as stated, it will probably be partly implemented. Even that worries me. Requiring all college students to participate in one or more government programs is too Orwellian for me, even apart from how this proposal would increase taxes.
