Homeowners vs. EPA Home Invasion – Do We Need Healthy Housing and more Nanny State?

advanced healthy housingThe Obama Administration bullied its way into your doctor’s office, now it is bullying its way inside your home. Claiming a need for “healthy housing,” new 2013 policies enacted by the Obama administration give the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Housing and Urban Development Agency (HUD) the right to decide the condition of your home.  While Obamacare is not about quality health care, the government’s new housing strategy appears to be more about home invasion than home health.

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 home 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.

Like Obamacare, this “action” being imposed by the government is touted as being “for your own good,” whether you like it or not.  The following statement by U.S. Deputy Secretary of Energy Daniel Poneman obtusely explains the push for so-called smart meters; meters that are reportedly designed to enable external control of home thermostats by government authorities:

Energy efficiency and healthy homes are inextricably linked. We cannot, in good conscience, pursue one in the absence of the other.

Selling, renovating or simply upgrading items such as air conditioning, electrical or water heaters can cost additional thousands. Inspectors will have greater access into your home through new and unwieldy code requirements. Contractors’ open work permits flag your home as a target. The new federal EPA, HUD and DOE home regulations filter down to local inspectors who are required by law to impose them or fail the home inspection. Unnecessary and unreasonable code can be imposed on homeowners who find they “can’t fight code.” There is virtually no appeal.

The government’s goal to invade personal privacy and control the lives of all Americans was exposed when Congresswoman Maxine Waters, a Socialist Democrat from California, recently bragged on TV One’s Washington Watch:

The President has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life. That’s going to be very, very powerful. That database will have information about everything on every individual on ways that it’s never been done before and whoever runs for President on the Democratic ticket has to deal with that. – Maxine Waters

Water’s real message is that it is the American people who are being forced to deal with it. Of utmost interest is if and how the American people will choose to do so.

NOTE:  OBAMA; THE UN: AGENDA 21April 2010, reads “…the Environmental Protection Agency will have power to force many homeowners to virtually rebuild their homes to meet stringent environmental requirements before they can sell them. Living in a house that does not meet the EPA’s “green” regulations for roofing, windows, doors, insulation or heating and cooling systems will be slapped with fines. Electrical companies are now installing “smart monitoring systems” to track usage of energy by residents.” TO CONTINUE:  CLICKHERE.

Discuss: “Homeowners vs. EPA Home Invasion – Do We Need Healthy Housing and more Nanny State?”

    It sure looks like most of the links in the above article – go to things dated in 2010 and 2012 – which is OK, I guess for old stuff – being recycled again, and again, and again – which is kinda what the Ronmey team did with the last election – recycle old Republican stuff, again, and again, and again – resulting in Mitt loosing the election!!!!

    Republicans certainly are free to recycle stuff – again, and again, and again – but what does it get them – other than feeling good about recycling — a green thingy that I don’t think that in other areas that Republicans support all that much.

    And Sharon doesn’t appear to like building codes either – which is basically nothing more than consumer protection – in a buyer-beware Capitalism – that takes advantage of buyers who are not aware – or who can’t afford to be aware!!!

    And what about renters, Sharon??? Renters, without enforcement of building codes are even in a worse buy-beware situation – because land-lords are not goina wanna share knowledge about building defects that they desire to rent.

    But then, in Sharon’s play-book – I betcha that she doesn’t see most Republicans as renters – which is a shame – cuz I betcha a lot of votes that the Democrats got – were from renters – who currently have little to no protection vis-a-vis building codes – cuz they ain’t building, but only renting.

    It’s kinda like the Republicans kissing off that 70% of the Hispanic vote to Obama – out of some kind of principle – that just turned that Hispanic 70% off from voting Republican.

    And it looks that Sharon wants to kiss off renters preferring to support owners – which will just be another case of Republicans kissing off the votes that they want to gather.

    Well, Sharon – time will till on this puppy too – just like the kissing off of 70% of the Hispanic vote – out of principle!!!!

    Just sayin’,
