(Bob Unruh) As you prepare for the IRS to start monitoring your health insurance and make your medical records accessible to thousands, perhaps you also should vacuum your floor, wash the windows and lock up any weapons, should you be so unwise as to actually have them.
It’s all in readiness for Obamacare, which will include home visits for many citizens, maybe even everyone, depending on the interpretation of the law.
“Health and Human Services’ website states that your family will be targeted if you fall under the ‘high-risk’ categories below: Families where mom is not yet 21. Families where someone is a tobacco user. Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities. Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forced who have had multiple deployments outside the United States,” Cook wrote.
He noted constitutional attorney and author Kent Master Brown has said it’s 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,” Cook said. “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.”
And ever wonder how a government program would be aware of just who is using tobacco? Or have a disability? Or exactly what is “low student achievement”?
Brown, during the last legislative session, had a conversation with South Carolina Rep. Bill Chumley, who proposed a bill to nullify some Obamacare provisions. His plan was to give the state authority to arrest federal agents for trespassing and make forced home inspections under Obamacare illegal in his state.
The measure ultimately failed.
