ObamaCare Enforces Mandatory Home Inspections by Government Workers- Disputed!
Summary of eRumor:
This is a warning that alleges that government workers will be performing home inspections thanks to a provision in the Affordable Healthcare Act.
This warning is way over the top and crosses into the territory of what we would call an unproven conspiracy theory. There is a home visiting program under the Department of Health and Human Services for families receiving government handouts that the agency would categorize “at risk.”
According to the Health and Human Services website this program is focused towards those “who are struggling to get into the middle class.”
This does not mean that government agents will be knocking on doors demanding to search the homes of every resident in the country.
This program has been in operation since July 2010 when the the Health and Human Services agency announced that it had received $88 million “for Home Visiting Program to Improve the Wellbeing of Children and Families.” The Affordable Healthcare Act will be providing this department with $1.5 billion over the course of five years for the home visitation program.
With such a budget the government simply does not have the resources to check on all 314,000,000 residents in the U.S.
