Wow, pretty inflammatory headline, eh? Sounds like another one of those wacky extremist papers. Sadly, no. The Obamacare forced home inspections article and headline come from Ben Swann‘s Truth in Media site.
Inflammatory? Yes. Wacky? Yes. Extremist? Most certainly! And true? Sadly, yes again.
The article and the 2 min. video at the end is all very illuminating, as is this quote by Kentucky Constitutional attorney and author Kent Masterson Brown:
“This is not a ‘voluntary’ program. The eligible entity receiving the grant for performing the home visits is to identify the individuals to be visited and intervene so as to meet the improvement benchmarks. A homeschooling family, for instance, may be subject to ‘intervention’ in ‘school readiness’ and ‘social-emotional developmental indicators.’ A farm family may be subject to ‘intervention’ in order to ‘prevent child injuries.’ The sky is the limit.
Although the Obama administration would claim the provision applies only to Medicaid families, the new statute, by its own definition, has no such limitation. Intervention may be with any family for any reason. It may also result in the child or children being required to go to certain schools or taking certain medications and vaccines and even having more limited – or no – interaction with parents. The federal government will now set the standards for raising children and will enforce them by home visits.”
I had to read that last line again:
“The federal government will now set the standards for raising children and will enforce them by home visits.”
Because we’re lucky in Kentucky, we have our own David Adams suing the state to stop the implementation of the illegal, immoral and unconstitutional Obamacare. Follow David’s delicious exploits here.
