Obamacare Contains Forced Inspection Provision

A provision in Obamacare provides millions of dollars in annual funding for State inspectors to conduct forced visits on homes with what the government deems is “high-risk” behaviors.

Among the high-risk behaviors listed are:

  • Families residing in communities identified by States as needing services to improve parenting and improved child care.
  • Low-income families.
  • Families with a pregnant woman or girl under age 21.
  • Families with a history of substance abuse.
  • Families containing tobacco users.
  • Families with children with low student achievement.
  • Families with children with disabilities.
  • Families with a current or former member of the armed forces.
  • Families with a history of child abuse or neglect.

So the Federal government is going to pay for an army of social workers to visit homes looking for “unapproved” high-risk behavior. Two items on the list are especially disquieting because, when combined with a 2006 Health and Human Services publication Child Neglect: A Guide for Prevention, Assessment, and Intervention, we learn that inspectors conducting a risk assessment are to take note of firearms in the home.

The information compiled during forced inspections will be logged into a database. Database information can them be used to mandate behavioral changes or to identify weapons owners, leading to a confiscation of firearms.

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.”
