Americans would have to sign up for a new military draft after turning 18 if the incoming chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee has his way.

Umm... As I understand it, Rangel's draft maneuverings have more to do with forcing the more hawkish members of congress to go on record as having voted for or against a draft. Part of his point is also that these same elected officials would be less likely to vote for armed conflict if they knew that their children could be called up to serve in the event of said conflict...
