Chuck describes Dirty Secret #1 in his most recent article on Obamacare. . . .
...which is the Government
coming into homes and
usurping parental rights
over child care and development!
Congress continues their sneaky, deceitful ways. Since Congress could not get it passed in the Education Begins at Home Act last year, they have snuck the Support for Quality Home Visitation Program in the health bill. This is government intrusion at the highest levels. This starts even before the child is born-how outrageous is that!!!
PURPOSE.—The purpose of this section is to improve the well-being, health, and development of children by enabling the establishment and expansion of high quality programs providing voluntary home visitation for families with young children and families expecting children.
While this section of the bill states that this is a voluntary program, the government will be targeting communities with a high proportion of low-income families. I believe that this will lead to coercion by the government and its officials to force this as well as its propaganda on low-income parents.
The government under this program is supposed to:
"Employ well-trained and competent staff, maintain high quality supervision, provide for ongoing training and professional development, and show strong organizational capacity to implement such a program..."
When the hell has there ever been a competent, well-trained Government Official especially in today's day and age? What a joke!!
In this section of the bill it is stated that there will be "activities designed to help parents become full partners in the education of their children"!
Full Partners with who? Oh! Hell no!!
Not the Government!!!
Chuck Norris states,
Are we to assume the state's mediators would understand every parent's social or religious core values on parenting? Or would they teach some secular-progressive and religiously neutered version of parental values and wisdom? And if they were to consult and coach those who expect babies, would they ever decide circumstances to be not beneficial for the children and encourage abortions?
One government rebuttal is that this program would be "voluntary." Is that right? Does that imply that this agency would just sit back passively until some parent needing parenting skills said, "I don't think I'll call my parents, priest or friends or read a plethora of books, but I'll go down to the local government offices"? To the contrary, the bill points to specific targeted groups and problems, on Page 840: The state "shall identify and prioritize serving communities that are in high need of such services, especially communities with a high proportion of low-income families.
Are we further to conclude by those words that low-income families know less about parenting? Are middle- and upper-class parents really better parents? Less neglectful of their children? Less needful of parental help and training? Is this "prioritized" training not a biased, discriminatory and even prejudicial stereotype and generalization that has no place in federal government, law or practice?
Bottom line: Is all this what you want or expect in a universal health care bill being rushed through Congress? Do you want government agents coming into your home and telling you how to parent your children? When did government health care turn into government child care?
This is yet another example of how our government wants to control our lives as well as future generations. This is one more reason Obamacare must be stopped!!
