Support H.Res 216 (the Corp budget)

At a time when unemployment nationally lingers above 9%, many are unaware that the unemployment rate for those 16-24 is double that.  It is poor judgment that allocates less than one tenth of one percent of the annual budget to AmeriCorps, Peace Corps and Job Corps.  These programs have repeatedly received bipartisan support in their efforts to provide temporary employment as a stepping stone for young people.  The proposed bill, H.Res 216, would increase the funding for these critical programs and would immediately provide relief for the age group hardest hit by the current economic troubles.
