The If You Let The EPA In Your House…

Share

What does a politically aware person think when he or she hears that the EPA is interested on their home’s “safety?”  Probably the following…

1.  Power grab.

2.  Regulations.

3.  Resulting Wallet Grab.

I could probably go on for a bit, but New Zeal has a lot more…

On February 4, 2013, the Obama government issued a press release on how it plans to gain access into your home. What follows is an edited snapshot of the government’s planned intrusions onto and into your private property:

FEDERAL AGENCIES WORKING TO MAKE HOMES HEALTHIER
Improving housing quality can dramatically affect the health of residents

WASHINGTON-Several federal agencies today unveiled Advancing Healthy Housing – A Strategy for Action. White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) Chair Nancy Sutley, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa P. Jackson, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Shaun Donovan, Surgeon General Regina Benjamin, M.D., and Deputy Secretary of Energy Daniel Poneman discussed the new plan during an event at the National Building Museum this morning… The Strategy for Action encourages federal agencies to take preemptive actions that will help reduce the number of American homes with health and safety hazards…. Currently, millions of U.S. homes have moderate to severe physical housing problems, including dilapidated structure; roofing problems; heating, plumbing, and electrical deficiencies; water leaks and intrusion; pests; damaged paint; and high radon gas levels… The Strategy for Action unifies, for the first time, federal action to advance healthy housing, demonstrating the connection between housing conditions and residents’ health… It is clear that unhealthy and unsafe housing has an impact on the health of millions of people in the United States,” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan… “Today’s announcement will help the federal government unify action to controlling and preventing major housing-related exposures and hazards.” (Emphasis added.)

The Obama administration through the EPA, HUD and DOE (Department of Energy) wants unprecedented control over your home. In addition to privacy issues, homeowners can expect to fork over hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to be in compliance or face stiff fines. Additional costs will be added to how new homes are built, whereas the sales of older homes can be stopped in their tracks until they meet stringent government codes. The government portends to act in your best interest. Note words, such as controlling, in the press release that reveal real intent:

1.) The Strategy for Action encourages federal agencies to take preemptive actions

2.) Today’s announcement will help the federal government unify action to controlling and preventing major housing-related exposures and hazards.”

3.) The Strategy for Action unifies, for the first time, federal action to advance healthy housing, demonstrating the connection between housing conditions and residents’ health.

4.) Currently, millions of U.S. homes have moderate to severe physical housing problems, including dilapidated structure; roofing problems; heating, plumbing, and electrical deficiencies; water leaks and intrusion; pests; damaged paint; and high radon gas levels.

OK, are you getting it?  This isn’t about helping people, and it’s no more about health than ObamaCare is.  It is, however, all about control.  And, in gaining that control, they’ll create a housing crisis.  And, when government causes a crisis, government is always put up as the solution the solution.  And, when government is the solution to the problem, union contractors are part of the “plan.”  And when union contractors are part of the “plan,” donations flood democratic coffers.  And, when union contributions flood democratic coffers, more democrats are elected.  And when more democrats are elected, more crises can be created.

Rinse and repeat as needed.
