Healthy Housing Is a Human Right


“Housing Is a Human Right” is a favorite cry of communists who believe that everyone should be forced to finance everyone else’s needs. Under Hopey Change, this slogan has been upgraded to “Healthy Housing Is a Human Right.” The Regime has announced a new initiative entitled Advancing Healthy Housing, promising to protect us from “moderate to severe physical housing problems, including dilapidated structure; roofing problems; heating, plumbing, and electrical deficiencies; water leaks and intrusion; pests; damaged paint;” et cetera; ad nauseam.

According to the Obama administration, the health and economic burdens from preventable hazards associated with both subsidized and privately owned homes cost billions of dollars.

The new strategy “unifies” federal efforts to advance healthy housing — “demonstrating the connection between housing conditions and residents’ health.”

This is why Democrats were willing to go to any length to ram through ObamaCare. Once public health is a public expense, every future intrusion by Big Government can be justified as a cost savings. If we let you drink too big a cup of soda, you’ll get fat, and that will cost money. If we let you have guns, someone might get shot, and that will cost money. If we don’t impose ever more picayune building codes and force you to pay for other people’s housing upgrades…

A 2013 report from the “Federal Healthy Homes Work Group” notes that “susceptible and vulnerable populations, such as children, the poor, minorities, individuals with behavioral health issues, and people with chronic medical conditions, may be disproportionately impacted by inadequate housing.”

If you are a working non-minority without any lucrative “behavioral health issues,” get ready to hand over your pound of flesh to make up for the alleged disparities.
