“Clearly, any family may be visited by federally paid agents for almost any reason.”

According to an Obamacare provision millions of Americans will be targeted.

The 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 forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States.

There is no reference to Medicaid being the determinant for a family to be “eligible.”

In 2011, the HHS announced $224 million will be given to support evidence-based home visiting programs to “help parents and children.” Individuals from the state will implement these leveraging strategies to “enhance program sustainability.”

Constitutional attorney and author Kent Masterson Brown states,

“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.”

Part of the program will require massive data collecting of private information including all sources of income and the amount gathered from each source.

A manual called Child Neglect: A Guide for Prevention, Assessment, and Intervention includes firearms as potential safety hazard  and will require inspectors to verify safety compliance and record each inspection into a database.

Last session South Carolina Rep. Bill Chumley introduced a bill, H.3101 that would nullify certain provisions of Obamacare. The bill would give the state attorney general the authority to authorize law enforcement to arrest federal agents for trespassing. It would make forced home inspections under Obamacare illegal in South Carolina. It passed in the House but died in the senate.

Kent Brown and Rep. Rick Quinn discuss “forced” home inspections under Obamacare in the video below.

  • Kojackson

    I’d love a lawyer to dumb down the terminology. When I read it, it sounds like this is about states with “home visiting programs” are trying to qualify to get more money for said programs, and in doing so, anyone who gets access to these “home visiting programs” would be subject to these “forced inspections”. Could we get clarification

    • hsmom2004

      I’ve read the bill, specifically this section, before it passed. Those states that sign on to implement the Affordable Care Act will, by virtue of that action, receive funds to hire people to go into people’s homes. The more home inspections they do, the more money the state gets. Does that help make this clearer for you?

    In Mass, if you send your child to the Pre-K program, you do get a visit every Monday from the staff as a requirement.

        Wasn’t it Massachusetts which had a senator who had a clandestine consort, and somehow she managed to get pregnant, and somehow or other, he drowned her, or let her drown, and he ended up paying a lot of “hush money” to her family?

    http://www.hhs.gov/healthcare/rights/law/patient-protection.pdf page 574/575 for those of you that don’t believe this

    • IndieVeteran

      Page number would be handy.

      • Reasonable Person

        On page 576 –

        “Assurances that the entity will establish procedures to ensure that—

        ‘‘(A) the participation of each eligible family in the program is voluntary”

        This really seems like sensationalism. The only person calling it “forced” is the attorney in the article making an argument against the Obamacare law. He is a noted Tea Party attorney who is suing to nullify the law and this is just one of the arguments he is using. It also appears to be false.

        • bigwhitedog

          I agree. I think it’s BS!!

        • ThinkingLeader

          Whether you believe it or not the SC passed the bill because of their concern of government intrusion. See video.

          • ThinkingLeader

            I mean the SC House not the senate.

        • Liberty Survival

          Just read that and thought the same thing, there are a million things that make this law bad but this does say specifically it is voluntary.

          • jiagap

            one of the “voluntary” problems: These things are always touted as “help” so foolish and vulnerable people ask for the help being offered. Once they are inside your doors they find things that do not “fit” the helper’s orthodoxy of family life. And often the “volunteer” status trans-morphs in to not-so-voluntary any more… Also, this sort of intrusion is already bad enough at County level, but to get the feds involved, along with a whole new layer of “helpers” paid by federal tax dollars is another layer. And you know the more they invest, the more reason they will find to invest more, and more, and more, and more…… just sayin..

    I know this is opening the door for more govt intrusion, but this will be for families who are receiving govt benefits, medicaid, wic, food stamps etc…don’t want them at your door, then don’t be getting a hand out…it’s as simple as that…

    • aliciacross

      I would not call being military receiving a “hand out”

      • chellethesouthernbelle

        I believe only those who are military and get wic (wic is considered an entitlement program) or some other sort of medicaid service would be in the program…I don’t believe it intended to include a family just because they are military.

    • Venus Brown

      Actually, this guy is claiming it’s involuntary, but the articles he linked to say these programs are voluntary.

      • RageFury

        I been reading that from a few people, how does that affect the PDF on neglect the article linked and the collection of Private data. Nobody holding your position has addressed this.

      • chellethesouthernbelle

        what i read said it would be random house checks…around 1500 i believe I recall but that could have been in each of 12 states that are participating…

    • Tanya Denee’

      Did you read the entire article?

      “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.”

      …..so apparently it’s not “as simple as that”.

      • chellethesouthernbelle

        yes I read the entire article and then did about 1/2 hr research on it because my adult handicapped son is on SSI and is covered by medicaid…

    • DolphinArtist67

      my Veterans Benefits are NOT A FRIGGIN’ HANDOUT!!! I served my country and EARNED them, so by gosh I’m entitled to them, and I’m entitled to be left the hell alone by the very government that I served!!! Thank you so very much!

      • chellethesouthernbelle

        I guess first we’d have to define what entitlements are legally and or socially….according to the govt they include veterans benefits as entitlements as well…

        patriots are the ones that call entitlements handouts…

        I consider something a hand out when someone takes help from the govt when they could have paid for it themselves

        but from what i’m seeing is it’s depends on a person’s perspective as to what determines what a hand out is….. how it is relative to a person’s situation of whether or not they consider it a handout, and/or an entitlement…for instance someone who qualifies for food stamps and does not get them, they usually call food stamps a hand out, but that same person could be getting earned income credit on their taxes and never consider that, a handout (free money)…yet the govt calls earned income an entitlement…

        My son is an iraq war vet, but he choses not to use his veteran benefits to get medical help from the govt because he don’t want them telling him what to do or prying into his life…basically what I’m saying is if we take anything from the govt, from WIC, to medicaid, food stamps, low income housing…college funds, veterans benefits, social security or SSI…we can expect to be subject to them telling us what and how to do…even so far as having our children in public school or driving on county and state highways…we use govt fund and or facilites and they are going to tell us how, when, what, where and how much…it’s as simple as that.

        • bgonz1990

          Bitch please. I’ll stop taking my food stamps(“entitlement) when politicians stop collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. Spending millions of dollars on themselves. Maybe worry about that before making a cheesy copout about welfare.

          • chellethesouthernbelle

            I’m not your bitch…and this article is not about what the govt is taking from tax payers…it’s about the govt intrusion into the lives of those who take from the govt….maybe they’ll be checking your house and telling you what to do next :)

  • Bob Thomas


    Actually this is just more complete BS…..geez people, learn to read
    Notice VOLUNTARY in the FIRST sentence

    • MrE03

      I’ll post this again, Let’s reflect on everything in America that has started out as voluntary and has turned into mandatory. That is a long list.

  • Jacob

    Read the actual source document, it says nothing about forced searches. Rather, it’s giving grants to states to help families who are at risk by giving them the *option* to have councilors etc visit the home. https://grants3.hrsa.gov/2010/Web2External/Interface/FundingCycle/ExternalView.aspx?&fCycleID=9E7EA909-4562-4FBE-86DA-D5F383C3ACFB&ViewMode=EU&GoBack=&PrintMode=&OnlineAvailabilityFlag=True&pageNumber=1

    • DeDe Terry Alexander

      And why is a family considered ‘at risk’ just because someone in the family is a vet? How does being a vet put me ‘at risk’? I would like to know how they came up with their idea of who is ‘at risk’ and what are we ‘at risk’ of?

  • Elaine

    oh, voluntary it says. Kind of like how there is no law stating we actually owe taxes and yet we all “voluntarily” pay them anyway?

  • Ron Clermont

    I can see it being voluntary till you say no……..

  • Blake

    Voluntary until you get denied health care by one of 0bama’s death panels until you comply.

  • Aeffesstoo

    I reserve the right to shoot the ass off anyone that enters my home without my permission.

  • BuckeyeSam

    WTF are these Obamacon creeps up to? Where does it end?

  • Amber

    You know, people that keep saying “it’s voluntary!” don’t realize that just because it’s “voluntary” doesn’t mean you won’t be forced one way or another, or otherwise punished for your rebellion.

    When higher-ups feel like they are better parents than parents (“Parenting is such a tough job, we just want to help”), they tend to not take “no” for an answer. To them, a “no” means “I’m a bad parent,” and they’ll either mark you up as such so that your benefits suffer, or they just force their way in anyway, and so on. Just like how, when Obamacare was passed, people who willfully choose to not have a particular insurance would be penalized (oops, I mean “taxed”) for doing so.

    “Recommended treatment” isn’t voluntary. It’s required. Do it or else, pretty much.

    • 7LibertyForAll

      “Voluntary” is just doublespeak……the income tax is “voluntary” except for the tiny detail where it’s “voluntary compliance”. It SOUNDS good but never is; because we don’t dig in our heels and refuse to comply with all their treasonous actions (including those by the thugs in their gang colors) they continue to take more and more. They WILL NOT STOP on their own–they will NEVER “comply.”

  • Donna W

    They shouldn’t be making plans to enter ANYone’s home! No one gets to visit theirs! That’s the point. And when people start pushing back, it won’t be voluntary anymore. This is absolutely hideous news.

  • Don Severns

    I’m pretty sure the Federal Income Tax is also classified as voluntary too. At least I’ve seen Harry Reid say and defend that position.

  • mare-bear

    looks like it’s “voluntary” for the states but I have no idea if that means if you live in a state that opts for this if it’s voluntary for individuals who live in that state… would be really nice to know…

    Thursday, January 10, 1963

    Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla.,
    is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently
    published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of
    alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

    At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under
    unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she
    identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon

    [From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]


    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to
    atomic war.

    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in
    atomic war.

    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the
    United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist
    affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for

    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet

    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist

    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the

    8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of
    Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free
    elections under supervision of the U.N.

    9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United
    States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in

    10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the

    11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter
    is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with
    its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the
    world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes
    these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in
    the Congo.)

    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

    13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

    14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United

    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American
    institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for
    socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum.
    Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in

    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs
    or organizations which are under Communist attack.

    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments,
    editorial writing, policymaking positions.

    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion

    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms
    of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to
    “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute
    shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is
    to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them
    “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting
    pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures,
    radio, and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal,
    natural, healthy.”

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with
    “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for
    intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the
    schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation
    of church and state.”

    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate,
    old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to
    cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as
    selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the
    teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor
    part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history
    since the Communists took over.

    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control
    over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare
    programs, mental health clinics, etc.

    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the
    operation of the Communist apparatus.

    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to
    social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric
    disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or

    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws
    as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose
    Communist goals.

    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity
    and easy divorce.

    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative
    influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and
    retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are
    legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and
    special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united
    force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

    43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations
    are ready for self-government.

    44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

    45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot
    prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic
    problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and
    individuals alike.

    Simply more evidence of an out-of-control police state that is part of a bigger & more out-of-control welfare/warfare/police state. For all practical purposes, the USA, US Constitution & US Dollar are dead. Of course, you really can’t kill good ideas, but if citizens just roll over & play dead as our nation, Constitution & monetary system (which was supposed to be based on gold/silver & with no Central Bank) collapse, then they are effectively dead. Right now, I see no real determined & organized opposition to Big Brother (what the USA has turned into).

    So its a grant program for states to expandexisting pleograms or implement new programs targeted at any of the 9 populations indicated. I don’t see anywhere in this document where it says any of the state programs which may receive the grant funds are mandatory programs, nor do i see where individuals not participating in the programs will be subject to “forced” inspectioins. What am I missing here?

    Let me tell you how it goes, since it was done to me and my husband, now deceased as a result of an intrusion into our home…due to a false report for a welfare check.

    First they bust into our home, accused my husband of having altered levels of consciousness, because he refused to speak to them, so he was hospitalized, and forced meds.

    NEXT, they wrote bogus reports, ‘no food, no water’ and threatened me with arrest, several times.

    Then when there their own investigation concluded no substantiation to allegations. None. I could not get my husband out of this death trap medical center, even with his own attorney at his bedside…

    But, afer MEDICARE was notified about what was going on, they phoned the Dr. and the hospital and told them, “they were not getting paid”

    With in a very short time, they released my husband home, with hospital-acquired delirium.

    • Red Blues

      My condolences to you for your loss.

      Sadly many were all in favor of “healthcare for all” when it’s really “health insurance for all’… we already have statute law the makes it illegal for a hospital or clinic to refuse care. This is just a way to siphon all the money from the best health care system in the world into the government coffers… and the IRS targeting of those who favor limited gubermunt is what everyone who disagrees with the ‘new normal’ will now face.

      Disagree with any of these bureaucratic slaves and face the same as you and your family. Might be why they’re stocking upon all the 4 person coffins at the new FEMA camps… when this really goes into effect full throttle, they expect a few (million) to disagree.

    I received a home phone call from these asshats asking me if I was a state resident (first question), which I never answered, but instead asked her who she was. She said she was with the healthcare intitative with the fed govt wanting to know if I would like a home inspection for my health and the health of the house such as radon gas leaks and high cholesterol. I got more info from her than she did from me. Turn the tables on them and start datamining their asses.

      Such calls are almost certainly from some scamming outfit masquerading as government. They can finagle a fee of some sort for their “services”, or, at the least, mine enough data from unsuspecting ignorants to accomplish identity theft. No, government does NOT call people to get them to sign up, arrange “inspections”, etc. Certainly a scam. You did the right thing….. blew them off.

    If this is true, it’s a violation of the spirit of the Fourth Amendment. However, the Fourth Amendment is technically limited only to police searches for criminal evidence. These inspections would be considered administrative (like TSA patdowns) and would thus be considered exempt from the Fourth Amendment. What needs to be done is to expand the Fourth Amendment to cover ALL government interaction with people on all levels.

    • Joe

      I don’t know the law that well, but are you saying that all non-police government agents (aka “administrative”) are allowed to violate the 4th Amendment? I was under the impression it applied to the government as a whole, not just police. Can someone please clarify? Thanks.

      • Kythas

        It does apply to government as a whole. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

      • Raised in the D

        Here is a personally experienced example: My nosy ex mother in law called CPS and accused me of neglecting my step kids because I would not allow her to have them over while their birth mother was visiting her. The birth mother had lost her parental rights for neglect and allowing, yes allowing, her nephew to sexually abuse them. A CPS worker knocked on my door and I opened the door and stepped outside. She asked if she could come in so we could “talk”. My response was “Do you have a warrant signed by a judge to inspect my home and under what probable cause?” She said it was an informal visit. So I said, my front porch is fine then. She asked to see the children. I asked under what probable cause. She started getting aggressive. I then told her “Under the 4th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America you must produce probable cause to a judge for a warrant and until you do, get off my porch!” I was never bothered again…They count on people not knowing that it applies to government agencies. They can’t inspect if you don’t let them in. You have rights! It is in your best interests to learn them…

      But see the 4th is broad enough that it really should cover things like this. The problem is bureaucrats and corrupt lawyers play word games and manipulate what the 4th “really” means to give the gov’t lee-way to do as they please…
      when in fact it’s nothing more then usurpation of the 4th I feel.

    • tionico

      the text of the Fourth Article of Ammendment has no language to limit the purpose of any potential searches. It merely says “search”… no warrant, no search. Public officials think they haev legitimate reason to show up for a “home instpection”, they need to articulate the grounds for that inspection, another word for “search”. Get a clue… the Founders put that there to prevent things exactly like this happening. And no, TSA have no free pass, either. When I present myself to board a commercial aircraft, under this Article of Ammendment they MUST articulate probable caue to do more than assure I am who I represent myself to be….. something they do NOT require when I show up to vote, by the bye…….

  • Static Brain

    It is a VOLUNTARY home visit program with money given to the states for
    such programs. If parents are concerned about home visit programs, they need
    not participate. You can read it at the social security website. “(7)
    Assurances that the entity will establish procedures to ensure that—
    (A) the participation of each eligible family in the program is voluntary; and
    (B) services are provided to an eligible family in accordance with the individual assessment for that family.” https://www.socialsecurity.gov/OP_Home/ssact/title05/0511.htm

    • Gray Fox

      Do not be so naive, the thing that should be most worrisome is that after time these “voluntary” inspections might be used as a means to obtain probable cause to invade private residence with no just cause.
      If you deny an inspection they’ll use it against you, like other times they do things like this.

      Think of it like a traffic stop, if you deny them they can use it as an excuse to search you anyways… and if you truly believe that won’t happen then I feel sorry for you for being completely gullible.

      • jk2001

        That could happen, but I suspect that the agencies doing the visits will tend to stick with easy-to-visit homes. Why would anyone make the effort to contact someone who resists? These are not government agents. They’re most likely going to be poorly paid canvassers.

      Social Security is voluntary too, but try saying hey don’t deduct that from my check.

      And how long do you suppose it would be before noncompliance would be considered suspicious and therefore grounds for forced intervention? Must have something to hide, right? I don’t know which is more terrifying – that the government wants to invade our homes this way, or that so many people will think this is perfectly reasonable.

          For some people that is a big boost and I am happy for you. In my case the cost of insurance is based on agi so my cost will be 5k or 600 per month. No consideration is taken for actual net pay. My husband brings home 1400 per month. Minus insurance at 600 and that leaves 800 per month for rent, cars, food, etc. Not possible.

          • jk2001

            If you’re income is only $1400 a month, you qualify for medicaid.

            If your agi is around 62k, you might fall into that gap between subsidized and unsubsidized insurance.

            If your gross is around 62k+, but your net is much, much less, you might try asking an accountant about how to classify the expenses as deductible expenses.

Obama stands up in front of a camera and say’s to the peasants, “We’re going to get to the bottom of this and the one’s responsible will be punished to the full extent of the law, I will not rest until this is done”. The we find out that the ones might/may be identified and are asked to resign, only to find out later that they were actually put into another government job.

    I read the entire bill. I did not find any mention of firearms or forced inspections. The inspection apparently only occur if someone applies for a grant of money.

    • Matt

      It seems to me the grant is for states to broaden current programs or implement new programs for home visit services. I don’t see anywhere in the document where any of these programs are mandatory for the states or for anyone to participate in.

    • jwebsmall

      Apparently is the operative word. Did you read anywhere in the entire bill that limits the authority to make inspections. Why would anyone volunteer for a home inspection? They wouldn’t – so what would be the purpose of the bill then in this regard? If congress doesn’t act “I will.” How does that work? In other words mission creep is a common practice. If the bill doesn’t prevent it then some bureaucrat is going to take everything he can get and grab for more. Do Americans really deserve to retain their liberty? Apparently not.

    • Rich

      You did not read the article very closely. It does not say that the bill mentions firearms. The definition of “high risk” comes from other sources, as well. You err by assuming all the details are in some bill when the bill merely provides a skeleton. The flesh consists of the rules, regulations, policies, and manuals written to implement the bill.

    The source linked is a provision for a grant available to state agencies. The agencies performing these visits would be the STATE AGENCIES receiving the grant funds, in fulfillment of the grant requirements… not Federal Agents. = Please learn to read.

For the last year she has done everything she was asked to do plus and they still removed her rights and will not let anyone else in the family have the boys. My grandsons are being adopted out to a family CPS picked for them. This couple cannot have kids so they are being sold my grandchildren…How is that right?

      i would need to know why she went to DHS to begin with. when you ask the government for help, you give them the rights to hold certain powers over you. i dont see anything about a lawyer being involved. a judge will not remove rights unless there is an issue where the children are in direct harm or their safety is compromised. i need more info.

  • Petition Redress

    I read and scanned through Sec. 2951 in the PPACA and did not see anything about a “forced” visitation, or a home “inspection.” The program causing a stir is called the “Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program.” And it also shows the amount of money to be spent over the past three years. From 2010 through 2012, the program was allocated $700 million. For 2013-2014, it was allocated another $800 million. W that kind of money, and having started in 2010, I think we would have heard from home educators, et al, if the program were doing any harm, “forced home inspections,” violating rights, etc.

  • gmo2ashes


    If you are one of the millions of Americans who does not want to be forced into purchasing “affordable” health care under Obama starting in 2014, you have the option to decline. As reported elsewhere, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) does not actually have the power or authority to collect so-called “taxes” for non-compliance with Obamacare’s individual mandate, which means refusing to purchase it is a no-brainer.

    As it turns out, provisions in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) bar the IRS from enforcing penalties against taxpayers who refuse to either purchase insurance or pay the uninsured “tax.” Not only can the IRS not bring criminal enforcement cases against taxpayers who refuse to pay the non-insurance penalty, according to Forbes.com, but the agency also cannot force a tax lien, which means the only way the IRS can collect the “tax” is to deduct it from taxpayers’ refunds.

    But many taxpayers do not receive tax refunds, which means they have the freedom to avoid paying the tax without penalty. And if millions of taxpayers choose to go this route, the entire sick care scheme will literally come apart at the seems, as insurance rates for everyone else will increase dramatically and eventually collapse the system. This, of course, will deter Obamacare from ever actually coming into full effect, at least not without major public uproar.

    “The restrictions placed on the IRS’s ability to collect the tax penalty make it unlikely the IRS can effectively enforce the individual mandate,” write tax experts Jordan M. Barry and Bryan T. Camp in their thorough analysis, Is the Individual Mandate Really Mandatory? – “Thus, many taxpayers who neglect or refuse to pay the tax penalty could structure their affairs in such a way as to avoid being subject to legal consequences of any sort for years to come, if ever.”

    You can read their full analysis here:


    What this all means is that savvy taxpayers who do not want to shell out their hard-earned cash to support the interests of the health insurance and pharmaceutical industry cabal have somewhat of a legal remedy at their disposal to protest it. Obamacare already appears to be collapsing before it even has the chance to come into full effect, and pledging not to purchase it or pay a penalty could be the final nail in the coffin for this fascist sick care dictate.

    “Congress purposely limited the enforcement powers of the IRS to avoid the public outcry that a strong mandate to buy government-approved insurance would evoke,” write Joseph Antos and Michael R. Strain for ‘The American Magazine.’ “Under Obamacare, the IRS cannot seize any of your property to enforce the mandate penalty. The IRS cannot go after the money in your bank accounts, and it can’t sell your car. It can’t send you to jail, and it can’t touch your stuff.”

    But even if it could, some might say that patriotic Americans who value true health freedom still have a duty to protect Obamacare. Yes, the existing health care system in America is flawed. But Obamacare is yet another step in the wrong direction, as it not only gives the federal government the power to force you into the system, but it will also require you to submit to treatments and procedures that are approved by the medical system, which we all know favors drugs and surgery rather than nutrition and prevention.





    • tantip1

      What are you people so scared of? I know, that maybe Obamacare just might work and save lives. I’m glad the law passed and no it’s not perfect but it’s a start.

      • gmo2ashes

        The government mandating an insurance product whether you want it or not, isn’t a start, rather it’s the end of healthcare freedom and the beginning of a penalty system designed to perpetuate disease and further disempower the individual – all while plundering the wealth of America.

        • tantip1

          The SCOTUS Upheld the law as being constitutional so people need to just get over it because this law is now the law of the land and it’s not going anywhere.

            Mark my words – you and all those who support this monstrosity will regret even hearing the term “Obamacare.” FYI, Justice John Roberts went out of his way to say that the program was in fact a tax and not the Supreme Court’s business. Justice Roberts defining the bill as a tax, meant he was throwing it back in the water for a do-over. Roberts refused to legislate from the bench.

            The legislation is NOT about providing affordable healthcare to anyone; instead it is illegal TAXATION.

            The Affordable Care Act is in clear violation of the rule requiring tax-bills to originate in the House.

            Secondly, ObamaCare is in violation of the Fifth Amendment by compelling the purchase of health coverage. It is forcing individuals and businesses to purchase a consumer product – in this case, health insurance. We’ll have & wait to see where it’s going.

          • tantip1

            I could care less. I know the system we have right now is not working when we have over 40,000 people every year who die because they have no health insurance Or People who lose everything they have because of an illness and the list goes on and on.

            When a person goes to the emergency room who do you think pays for that? tax payers, ObamaCare is not going anywhere so people just need to get over it already. They did the same thing with Medicare and it’s still going strong after all these years.

          • gmo2ashes

            It’s pointless attempting to reason with you. Apparently you’re drunk on Obama koolaid and living a delusion.

          • tantip1

            I’m delusional because I don’t view things like you? You’re the delusional one and yes I support this President 1000%. I know, if you don’t like the way things are going then why don’t you run for President and get elected and then you can be running things.

          • gmo2ashes

            “I’m delusional” …yes I concur with your admission. That’s the first thing you’ve said that makes any sense.

          • tantip1

            Everything I have said makes perfect sense. I want everyone to have health insurance and I don’t want to see anyone sick and die because they couldn’t get insurance or couldn’t afford it. I take it you’re the type of person filled with hate and it wouldn’t bother you that people suffer and die because they have no health insurance.

          • Mary

            You are right on target. These people are full of hate yet they are a part of the so called “God Party” I am not insulting Christians per se, but I think Christ would insult any Christian who acts this way towards their fellow man.

          • Mary

            All you have to do is a little research. ER’s cannot legally turn people away, period. My brother-in-law had a seizure and was taken to the ER. Since he had no insurance the TAXPAYERS did indeed pay for it. ER’s used to close down because of uninsured patients so the gov picks up the tab.

            I am certain that you and your fellow pubs would love this if it were labled RomneyCare. After all you have never bothered to read it to even understand what it does so you wouldn’t know the difference.

      You guys are determined to to derail this and screw this up for everyone else all because of rumors and you don’t even bother to find out the truth! And then once it fails then you will say “I told you it wouldn’t work!”

      The biggest lie is that this is socialism.

      Well you may not favor drugs and surgery now. but wait until you get into a serious car wreck and THEN see how you feel about it! BECAUSE THE TAXPAYERS WILL BE PAYING YOUR WAY!

          I use logic, so therefore I am not clueless. You use rumors and hate.
          I do not consider Obama to be a God, nor do I think no one should work. But please enlighten me as to who will be paying for you when you go to the ER with no insurance?
          Beyond that you do know that ACA is not a “freebie” right? And that it is capitalistic as well? I guess you are too busy with your knee-jerking to know that.
          Some people gravitate towards causes and if one doesn’t present itself then they will make something up. That is the basis of conspiracy theories.
          Maybe you could do something useful, like reading to children in the public library? Ooops I guess you wouldn’t go for that since it was founded by that evil socialist Ben Franklin.

            I’ll have you know – you communist bitch – I am a farmer – a noble profession – and I work for a living – and I don’t need nor do I want any handouts – and if I need to visit an emergency room, I’ll pay for it myself – and if I don’t need or want some product or merchandise, no one’s going to force me to purchase it. Now hit the road and sell that crap to someone else. I’m not buying.

          • Mary

            You most likely will not be able to pay so then you will be ON THE DOLE forcing everyone to pay for you. That is not crap, that is the TRUTH

          • sick/tired

            The bottom line is this, hard working Americans (with families)are forced to pay over $500 /mo and receive no benefits (not one dime) until they pay their deductible of over $3000 and then it is not given at 100% until they have spent thousands more. The medical industry and insurance companies are sucking our blood with a medical mortgage
            greater than our house payments. Many Americans cannot afford to go to the overpriced, over-rated, American medical services after paying their bills.
            Why have a car you cannot drive? The government says you will buy this car, I say with what? If you are poor you get it all for free, so why worry about a job?

          • gmo2ashes

            I don’t care what it costs, I don’t want or need it and I will not be forced to buy it. We’ll go to the ground on this one.

          • CATRYNA49

            Most of us alive, today, could easily say that our ancestors were farmers. Very few were illiterate, if any. Your points are pointless. I assure you that many of us still pay our own way regardless, and don’t need the government “helping” us. Not only that. home inspections are already being made at the local level and have been for a number of years. Big brother has been trying to get into our homes for a very long time.

      • Stephanie

        You want the TRUTH about how this is going down? Millions of people living pay check to pay check, losing jobs or getting only part time work now, thanks to this “affordable” care act. Millions of these people riding the poverty line, or swimming below it have now had a portion of their checks taken away due to this new “tax” (robbery). YET they are STILL mandated to buy into a plan because most of them will NOT qualify for the expanded medicaid. You don’t GET IT. This not going to help the poor, it’s going to drive them FURTHER into poverty and dire situations. WAKE UP. This NOT going to help those who need it the worst. We need a health care plan, but NOT THE ONE Obama is mandating. It’s a train wreck that will drive this country into serious trouble. WAKE UP.

        • another guest

          It’s true. I’ve already heard many people talking about how their hours are being cut due to the coming health bill. And these are all workers in the restaurant, retail, gas station levels right now. But it’s about to get much worse as more and more companies cut hours.

  • 1 4 liberty

Our elected elite only care about getting re-elected and could give a sh^t at what they are supposed to do “Protect the Constitution.”

        Freedom is long gone, man. Go light up a smoke in the mall or the workplace if you think differently. Pay off your home and then pay on it some more for the rest of yours and your children’s lives. Drive without insurance, walk down the street with a beer. People have been fined for gardens in their front lawn. Farmers being raided because they don’t play the game. A man was just given 20 years in Louisiana for a joint. It’s just more and more. What was a wonderful country has long been dead. To survive requires total acquiescence of liberty.

    • Fletch

      Government never, in the end, looks out the citizens. Sure, someone can always find something “good” that the government does, and why can’t they? It’s not like everyone in the government is bad, and the government can’t entirely screw the people (speaking of this country).

      Here’s an easy thing to look at: If the government was so concerned about the children, they would improve the quality of nutrition in school lunches. This is a no brainier. But they don’t. So you can’t sit here and preach all this stuff, and then feed them junk food. Food is a major requirement for life to exist, and we do it 3 times a day!! Therefore, all this other stuff leads me to believe there is ulterior motives behind their purported “helpful” tasks.

  • jk2001

    That Chumley bill is pretty bogus. The people coming in won’t be federal agents; they’ll be researchers and outreach staff of nonprofits that will be bidding for ACA grants to perform the research. They are going to be looking for things like messy houses with rodents, signs of abusive parents, etc. Look up MIECHV which is what the program is called. You really should put the name of the program in your article, so people can look it up. MIECHV. Look it up.

    Are there some objectionable aspects? Sure. But no more objectionable than what these nonprofits are already doing, and not more objectionable than a lot of churches and charities have signed on with regarding reporting questionable home situations to the local government agencies that deal with child protection.

    In my experience, the people who will suffer most are also those who will be helped the most: the poor. Poor people get screwed by social services because they’re generally staffed by middle class busybodies who, at some level, hate poor families, especially poor Black mothers. But, in my opinion, the racism that seems ever-present in government services shouldn’t invalidate them. It just is a sign that reform is an ongoing requirement.

  • PMC

    You need to actually read the actual legislation you link to in the article. There is nothing in this that compels people to get these services. Using the words ‘target’ and ‘high risk’ is like saying the Government is ‘targeting’ old people by offering them Medicare. This is more BS, just like the ‘death care panels’ that people blew up totally out of context and purpose. You write these articles and people take them as gospel.. Try reading the actual text of the GRANT. There is nothing here to get upset about. The only thing you might or should be upset about is the ongoing sharing of or total lack of safeguards of information that this and previous administrations have made commonplace. But the upside to that is at least now if it leaks out that you have a serious condition, you cant be denied coverage. So that’s a plus, at least until or unless Obamacare is reversed, then you are screwed.

    • Mudpie

      Dear PMC. I would suggest some mandated psychiatric care for you, as was common in the Soviet Union. You are clearly a primary candidate.

          But intelligent enough to know an idiotic waste of taxpayer money when I see it, and smart enough to know it is immoral and totalitarian and Nazi-like to force millions of people into health care arrangements that they do not want.

          • Mary

            Is it “immoral and totalitarian and Nazi-like” for the government to require us to get car insurance?

            You do realize that if you end up in the ER/Hospital and can’t afford to pay that SOMEONE ELSE WILL BE PAYING YOUR BILL? Either through higher medical costs passed on through higher medical bills and insurance premiums for others or through Uncle Sam, i.e. the TAXPAYERS. The ER cannot turn away anyone legally so it is a NO BRAINER that society is paying for this.

            That means that it is the uninsured who are ON THE DOLE.

    • Bosslady

      There is nothing to get upset about? Well, I guess it’s just a coincidence then that just today I received a SECOND phone call from someone saying they wanted to send a “health assessment officer” to my house to “check me out” and “inform me” about my health. Never mind that the annual Medicare Wellness visit at the doctor’s office does the same thing. Oh, no, they are going to send a stranger into the home of a vulnerable senior. They informed me that I will need to “share with them” my labs, my medical history, my surgeries, etc. and all my other supposedly confidential medical information. I turned them down when they called the first time in June. And here they are again, calling to tell me about this “free” and “voluntary” new benefit.

      • mrwonderful

        Do not comply. There is nothing to be gained and everything to be lost. ‘There’s always free cheese in a mouse trap’

      • Mary

        Did it ever occur to you that they probably have this service for seniors who have trouble getting out of the house? A friend of mine tells me that it is a real hardship on her 85 year old mother to go to the doctor’s office. This sounds like a good deal to me. And them calling you twice? That is probably a computer glitch, not intentional.

        The fact is that no one has barged into your home so therefore IT IS voluntary.

        So many people are going into hysterics over rumors.

        Unfortunately it is EASY to set up a website and tell lies. It can look credible but it is not.

    Most don’t know but the Obama Care law also provides funding for states to conduct “home visits” to increase vaccination rates:



    …‘‘(E) providing for home visits that promote immunization through education, assessments of need, referrals, provision of immunizations, or other services;”

    • Gloria

      First of all, this article is all lies. Second, children should all be immunized, for their own protection and everyone else’s. A crazy church in Texas told parents not to vaccinate their kids, and now they have a measles epidemic. If home visits are required to educate parents, I’m all for it. Nobody says they are unannounced or an invasion of privacy.

      • Stephanie

        My children never had ONE vaccine injected into them. They are now in their late 20′s and extremely healthy. Whenever people around them are falling sick all of the time, they are never ill. They are strong, healthy, and very intelligent. Go ahead and get your poison vaccine.

      • Beka Lyn

        My dear Gloria, Please stop drinking the Kool-Aid. Any one who says that the government has a right to go into anyone’s home for no reason needs to be the ones subjected to those searches. I have nothing to hide. And do not need the Federal Government sneaking into my private life. And as far as the idea that all children should be given their shots, not everyone can tolerate some of the components in the vaccines. So anyone who wants to climb on your band wagon and be in a communist country needs to leave mine. And i will be there wave good-bye. Some of the worst problems that we have with our children comes from to much outside interference for people that have no right to be speaking about what you do with your children unless you are trying to do real harm or injury to the child. We need to disassemble major parts of the Federal Government and let the states go back to having the control that they were suppose have. We regrettably have become a country that is lost. Our children have forgotten who they are. They have been taught to conform to the rest of the country. We have weakened our country by remove the competitiveness out of the education and the sports programs. So if you like the substandard lifestyle for your child then you are welcome to it. But not in my country. Everyone should be encouraged to do their best. They should strive to be the best that they can,

      Hello dear,

      There is a horrible problem preventing people from getting proper care, and it is poverty and out-of-control greed from corporate dominance of a rogue government.

      And the problem stems from a reeducation of our people into an ignorance that will propagate more poverty. Furthermore, among the ones purported to care about healthcare, there is enormous contradiction, and I understand you believe their care for us is established. But, all one has to do is look at the contemporary facts and history to see where this is taking us.

      Secret deals behind closed doors; that is what we have been forced upon us. This is not the transparency that was promised.

      No matter how good those leaders in our government may intend to be, supposed good intentions pave the way to hell, which is destruction.

      Just because your argument appears deductive does not necessitate its validity. Therefore, appealing to the Supreme Court as a reason for believing something is divesting yourself.

      The legislature, the judiciary, and the executive branches could all get together and say, “We made a mistake, we need to readmit nonracial slavery, and were going to call it the American Freedom Act.”

      Now, many would allegedly benefit from the effects of this newly formed freedom. However, it would not make it constitutional, it would not make it needed, and it would not make it freedom.

      Sincerely, Joseph C. Carbone III; 25 August 2013

    Forced Home Inspections = COMMUNISM. This is precisely what was being
    promoted in a Communist magazine run by card-carrying communist GERARD
    PELLETIER and Soviet Mole PIERRE ELLIOTT TRUDEAU in the 50s and 60s.
    Forced home inspections by STATE HEALTH CARE AUTHORITIES, to see if you
    were raising your kids properly, and washing your dishes. If you don’t
    know that COMMUNISM has come to your country, and you should be OUSTING
    your COMMUNIST-RUN administration by every legal measure you can find,
    pending civil war to do so as a last resort, it’s time you woke up.
    Here’s what they do once they get SOCIALIST control of the medical
    system. It becomes a state weapon of social control. Any citizen
    inconvenient to the state can simply be targeted for ELIMINATION by the
    state’s use of the digital records that link the whole system. If you
    are a problem for the state, your medical records will be FLAGGED.
    There are plenty of people willing to do as state and police tell them
    and MURDER YOU IN COLD BLOOD in your hospital bed, and pass it off as
    unfortunate complications, or you died of a fatal illness. Stick with
    DATABASE which your COMMUNIST-led OBAMA Administration can use to MURDER
    you, selectively, through its own controlled, state-paid,
    COMMUNIST-sympathizing health-care appointees.

    Forced Home Inspections = COMMUNISM. This is precisely what was being promoted in a Communist magazine run by card-carrying communist GERARD PELLETIER and Soviet Mole PIERRE ELLIOTT TRUDEAU in the 50s and 60s in Quebec, Canada. Forced home inspections by STATE HEALTH CARE AUTHORITIES, to see if you were raising your kids properly, and washing your dishes. If you don’t know that COMMUNISM has come to your country, and you should be OUSTING your COMMUNIST-RUN administration by every legal measure you can find, pending civil war to do so as a last resort, it’s time you woke up.

    Here’s what they do once they get SOCIALIST control of your medical system. It becomes a state weapon of social control. It becomes a state weapon of ideological control. Any citizen “inconvenient” to the state simply can be targeted for ELIMINATION by the state’s use of the digital records that link the whole system.

    If you are a problem for the state, your medical records, your OBAMA-CARE CARD, will be RED-FLAGGED.

    There are plenty of people willing to do WHATEVER any goose-boot in a UNIFORM tells them to do, i.e., state authorities and police can tell them and MURDER YOU IN COLD BLOOD in your hospital bed, and very conveniently pass your DEATH off as “unfortunate complications” from a valliant attempt to “save” you.

    Or, you died of a fatal illness despite all efforts by the heroic medical staff WHO WILL HAVE KILLED YOU WITHOUT TRIAL on the basis of POLICE REQUEST.

    Stick with private insurance, and DO NOT LINK UP YOUR ID INTO A NATIONAL MEDICAL DATABASE which your COMMUNIST-led OBAMA Administration can use to MURDER you, selectively, through its own controlled, state-paid, COMMUNIST-sympathizing health-care appointees.

    I tell you this from PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE, because the local POLICE instructed a local HOSPITAL to ELIMINATE ME, and they promptly attempted TO DO SO, while POLICE criminally helped my landlord dispose of my LAW BOOKS, EVIDENCE and LEGAL RESEARCH against the conversion of Canada to the North American Union system, which is a COMMUNIST REGIONAL UNION. I was kidnapped off the sidewalk, and subjected to ATTEMPTED MURDER by state-controlled, and police-controlled “authorities” in 2007.

    I have since been BLACKLISTED by the state itself, imposing a RED FLAG on all my government-issued ID required to:

    1) HOLD A JOB

    If I take a job interview and I am hired, and the employer runs my government-controlled MEDICARE CARD through the system to see that I am not a migrant illegal worker, within anything from ONE HOUR to a few hours, to a few days after this is done, “authorities” contact the employer to ORDER them to FIRE ME. The employer is moreover BRIEFED by these invisible “authorities” to DEPRIVE me of my PAY, to LIE on my pay stubs, to hide bonuses earned, and to openly, in front of other staff, “discredit” me as “PARANOID” while they are doing all this. This is how COMMUNIST governments, the SOVIET government being one excellent example, quietly control the opposition by having its POLICE recruit your employers, your neighbors, your janitors and landlords, to DEFAME you in order to CREATE AND BUILD UP A FALSE RECORD which the state and police can then use to officially declare you CRAZY so they can eventually kidnap and permanently incarcerate you, as was done to countless SOVIET DISSIDENTS. That system is here, in North America, ACTIVE IN CANADA, and now your COMMUNIST usurper in the OVAL OFFICE, is palming it off on all you USEFUL IDIOTS who won’t see it for what it is and stand up to it.

    FORCED HOME INSPECTIONS is a very full step into COMMUNIST state-ownership of the INDIVIDUAL and of ALL of your property. You are no longer a free, self-determining person, able to run your own life. YOU ARE CHATTEL OF THE SOCIALIST STATE. Get rid of your COMMUNIST-run Administration!

      Psst – communism and socialism aren’t the same thing. Aaaand, national healthcare reform is a far cry from socialism. Why are you such an alarmist? The black man won’t come to your house, don’t worry. Deep breaths, deep breaths.

      • Leo

        Gov. paid troll? They do that you know…

  • Mike Hartshorne

    Its not about healthcare. There won’t be any! Its about the Federal government taking over state and local commerce (revenue).

  • stephanie

    I don’t believe ANYTHING SNOPES has to say. They are two hired govt shills, a married couple, who sit at home all day long and put up these articles for the govt. They are hired disinfo.

    • The Mule

      This guy sits around all day and cooks up propaganda to feed your existing fear of change and black people. What’s the difference? If you don’t trust snopes, why don’t you go look at the parts of the law he refers to and see for yourself? Too busy for truth?

  • stephanie

    DON’T OPEN THE DOOR. You don’t have to. And if they insist, tell them to get a warrant for entry. This is my property and they have no right to come in and snoop their noses around in my business. Stand outside all you please and knock, hell, keep on coming back. But I will not open up until I see a warrant for entry.

    • Kylie Wainscott

      What bothers me is that they probably won’t need warrants soon.

      • The Mule

        What bothers me is that there is no “they”, and “they” aren’t coming to your house. If you really care about truth and reality, this entire scare tactic is easily disproved. Or you can hunker down with your can goods and ammunition and wait for the apocalypse. Your choice.

        • Kylie Wainscott

          Someone here has never dealt with DFCS before… If the government can take away your kid with Down syndrome because they can storm into your house based on a phone call and find a bruise on your child because said child bumped into a light post, they can certainly enforce home inspections. You are amazingly short-sighted, sir.

      very funny dude, you are a democrat activist. Bye bye! Get off this message board please and go drool in a Democrat message board site.

      • Jarek Draven

        STFU with your divisive bullshit. He’s a “democrat” because he makes anti-semitic statements? How brilliant of you. Should I point out that I’ve seen more so-called “conservative” anti-semites than left-leaning ones? STFU and GTFO with that bullshit.

        • Dr_Michael_Savage

          I think you misunderstood him. He’s saying this guy is coming on hear to make the board sound anti-semetic. Basically a troll working for the system.

          We need to stop thinking of ourselves in the categories they created. Republicans and Democrats are all Corporatists now. They do the bidding of the corporation/finance/military/globalist interests. It’s Americans vs. Corporatists now. Let’s all agree we’re on the side of America.

        • Dawn Wave

          How can someone be an anti semite when most jews are ashkenazi? (eastern european) This is a trick these terrorist jews don’t want people to know. These jews are the true anti semites in what they are dong to the Palestinians, true semites!! Educate yourselves before looking like a dumb box of hair. No wonder it is so easy for these jews to fool and manipulate people! sheeeeesh!

  • Ginger Sadler

    We can NOT let them in for now but how long before they really do become forced..and I can almost guarantee if you refuse, you will then be dealing with CPS soon and risk losing your kids…This is healthcare act is the biggest joke in the world…We are forced to provide insurance for ourselves, what are we going to be forced to do next.

    • CycloneCO

      You are not too bright….how did you come to this conclusion? With this kind of idiotic thinking you should get some mental health services right away.

  • PeriSoft

    This might be fearless, and maybe it’s grassroots – but it’s certainly neither investigative nor journalism.

    I’m a bit curious how absurd you could make your claims and have them repeated as fact, actually. A federal agent will be assigned to each family and live in their house! People who vote republican will be forcibly sterilized! Children will be required to wear wires while at home and report to the police!!!! Chemicals will be added to juice boxes to turn all of our kid gay!!!!

    Wait, people actually believe that one, too – never mind.

    I hope you ben swann guys are really proud of yourselves. Is the money worth it, or do you actually have a hard time sleeping once in a while?

  • TYCapitalism

    So Snopes.com “debunked” this after barely reading your argument. Just so you know.

  • liltampa71

    Did anyone read this BEFORE they became concerned? It is for states that already have VOLUNTARY visitation Programs. It’s clear in the first line of the “purpose”.

    I am anti-Obamacare. But I’m also anti false information.

  • xandalis

    You’d think that if this was “real,” the writer would actually also mention the original text in part or in citation. But no, of course there’s no citation, because it’s fear-mongering lunacy. Incidentally, the relevant section (2951) pertains to people who are already subject to home inspections (more than likely because they’re suspected of child abuse and/or neglect already), and how any agency provided care must comply with the new provisions of the ACA. It doesn’t matter what your political views are, stupid is stupid; believing some blog post over the actual text of a law, is stupid.

    • Toni Holliday

      And once again, the libtard is WRONG! My daughter, who works and goes to school; has NEVER had an issue with CPS has been targeted with a forced “home inspection” simply because she was told by the ER doctor that she couldn’t work for 2 days due to a mirena issue. Their reasoning? Because alcohol or drugs MUST be the reason she had to miss 2 days’ work. You people have NO clue what is going on in the real world so shut your freaking pie hole!!!!

      • xandalis

        Names of the “officials;” Dates of alleged inspections; Locations; Citations, now. Oh, and do make sure to mention whether or not your state actually is in compliance, or if it’s just a case of your local politicians crafting a situation much like the Republicans in Congress right now. Unlike “Republitards” I’m completely willing to accept I’m wrong, if factual proof is produced. The above only qualifies as word of mouth, not even admissible in a court of law. Oh, and of course don’t forget to cite the relevant bit of “law” that they said allows such a thing. That means Title, Article, and Section(or subsection).

        I do indeed have a clue what’s going on, I should, I served on Active Duty during the Bush years. What have you done for your country?

      SNOPES is a DNC funded dis-information site. SNOPES simply is not credible.

  • kathy

    This is really bizarre to me that most people commenting on this really believe it! Where is your common sense people! Just like the Y2K scare, or WE NEED a BOMB shelter scare, or the government will tell us what to do soon! Ignorant, paranoid people.

    • Kriegar

      LOL-still, just because you’re paranoid, it doesn’t mean they aren’t watching you!

  • Kriegar

    False. Nice try. You should feel ashamed for misleading, and lying to, your readers.

  • The Mule

    Why lie? As if there aren’t enough legitimate causes to criticize the government, you’re going to get on here, mouth agape, and spew easily debunked propaganda… to what end? You have succeeded only in ruining your credibility.

    This isn’t a liberal or conservative thing — this is simply lying. Badly, at that. Grow up.

    Few weeks ago i saw a testimony about a spell Therapist of some sort
    in a blog,I visited for relationship and dating counseling problems
    because i had been having serious issues with my boyfriend and we had
    been dating for nine months,he just suddenly changed,he was returning my
    calls,he started cheating,he was hurting me in so many ways i never
    thought possible and I just thought I should try it maybe out of
    desperation of some sort and I contacted Therapist Oniha of the
    [email protected] At first everything felt dreamy and
    unbelievable,his consultations and solution was a little bit easy and
    strange and I was scared a little cos I heard read and heard lots of
    stories of fake spell casters,scams and i never really believed in
    spell. I played along with a little hope out of frustration and faith,it
    worked like a miracle,everything went to a while new direction,it was
    and is amazing… I guess it was all good faith that made me read That
    particular post that directed me to Therapist Oniha on that faithful
    day..I hope he could help other people too like he did to help me… I
    did a little and I got everything I wanted and wished for my husband,my
    family and my life back,i am so happy believing in my faith.

  • Leo

    For the folks that are claiming this is fake and referencing Snopes to back their claim… At the very LEAST this is a huge open door for big brother to get in almost anyone’s business and we know that those who are for big gov. will always expand these policies. While this may not seem like an immediate threat, almost EVERYTHING that the feds do should be viewed with much scrutiny and, in these times, distrust. Question Authority! Anyone who does not agree with that can not be trusted.

  • Dan Sanders

    As a soon-to-be new father, the implications of these new laws are deeply frightening to me. The only thing more frightening to me are the depths I would go to to keep my daughter from being taken from my due to some tyrannical, trumped-up and false charges, like “non-compliant on vaccinations.”

  • Scott Hendry

    As invasive and potentially disastrous as i think the ACA is, I read a good bit of the PDF linked to on the HHS website provided in the article. Even after a while of CTRL+F looking for “force”, “involuntary”, “penalty”, etc., I came up empty. Makes me wonder where the author came up with those words. Maybe that’s why they’re always in quotes.

    • David Agosta

      Of course the author also removed the word “agree.” Funny how easy it is to separate fact from propaganda when the propagandist is stupid enough to provide a link to his obfuscation of the truth.

      • April Rena Smith

        But… they have ways of making you “agree”. You know this. This has been happening to poor folks a long time already, now ALL will know. We need to stop fighting each other and come together. When we realize this, it may be too late. Everyone knows that this is happening, let’s not let them do this to us. Peace

    As a member of the armed services and having served two tours I have to say this….come to my house try to tell me how to raise my children, try to take my kids away and you’ll learn real quick why the enemy fears the Army Infantry.

    • David Agosta

      If your kid to be shows up at school covered with bruises, someone is coming to your house and they’ve increased funding to support that so my advice to you is to stop beating your kids.

  • David Agosta

    “support home visiting programs that bring nurses, social workers, or other health care professionals to meet with at-risk families that AGREE to meet with them in their homes.” Do you need to look up the definition of “agree” and “voluntary?”

  • 30yrnurseretired

    Yes, my husband and I were subjected to a ‘welfare check’, where the people who know best, lied, made false reports, and ran an actual conspiracy against us, because they were wrong, and they’re reputations were at stake.

    IT turned out the social workers involved were not licensed, and the foreign doctors, green card holders lied the most. These green card-holder doctors were from ‘terror-States’.

    Perhaps your reading comprehension skills need work.

    And if it isn't voluntarily, they already have a program for that. It's called a"warrant".
