Republicans are now working feverishly to stop the “forced visits” they've only “heard about,” as stated in the following clip. You should also take note how they’re openly planning to limit "activist" local liberal areas of the state, a preemptive action they think will foil the spread of Democratic socialism.
Kent Brown and Rep. Rick Quinn discuss “forced” home inspections under Obamacare in the video below.
The militant conservative site Freedomoutpost.com mistakenly claims: “There is no reference to Medicaid being the determinant for a family to be ‘eligible.’” But, the rule starts with this:
"The purpose of the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Competitive Grant program is to award Development Grants to States that currently have modest home visiting programs..."The rule applies to the above program through the Affordable Care Act. Is that not clear?
Freedomoutpost even quotes a right wing attorney who sounds absolutely out-of-his-mind:
Constitutional attorney and author Kent Masterson Brown states,
“This is not a “voluntary” program. 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.”
Yes, he actually said that. Could such an Obama overreach be true? Will we force children from their parents, give them medications, and raise them? Here’s the governments explanation as it appears in statute:
“…grants to States that currently have modest home visiting programs and want to build on existing efforts. The funding provided will build on the formula funding already provided to States and territories to support the quality implementation of home visiting programs. Priority for Serving High-Risk Populations and Programmatic Areas of Emphasis As directed in the legislation, successful applicants will give priority to providing services to the following populations…”
See, it’s right there somewhere…it’s implied, right? Freedom Out Post even found this outrageous:
A manual called Child Neglect: A Guide for Prevention, Assessment, and Intervention includes firearms as potential safety hazard.
How ridiculous to think guns would be unsafe for kids?
