Bush’s empty rhetoric on AmeriCorps. (Thanks to Josh for the link.) I can only imagine the reasoning behind letting AmeriCorps funding get cut so drastically: Yes, Mr. Bush. Let’s wholeheartedly encourage Americans to volunteer and then take away the most successful outlet that allows them to do so. Let’s promise to expand AmeriCorps and then watch the budget get slashed without saying a word. Let’s in fact create another layer of bureacracy and call it Freedom Corps, but don’t actually give it a purpose or a staff. No one will notice! They’ll think we really care about the poor and the less-fortunate. Right?
