Dems Seek to Raise Army Size
The Hill reports that House and Senate Democrats today will be introducing the Army Relief Act to increase the size of the Army:
Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D-Conn.), ranking member of the Senate Armed Services (SASC) airland subcommittee, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.), a SASC member, and Reps. Ellen Tauscher (D-Calif.) and Mark Udall (D-Colo.), both members of the House Armed Services committee, are pressing for the passage of the United States Army Relief Act. The legislation seeks to raise the cap of the Army’s end strength, said an aide to Tauscher.
If the army is authorized to recruit more soldiers, where will they come from in no one volunteers? Will it pave the way for a draft?
