Gets better and better, doesn't it?
Better read this…Democrat or Republican or Independent or Libertarian…doesn’t matter…if you own a home, you’d better read this…
Don't want to be bothered with "Political stuff?" You'd better read this one. It will come as a huge shock to you if you aren't informed as to what He's up to now, and apparently it has already passed one hurdle. It will take very little now to put it into actual law!! YOU'D BETTER WAKE UP AMERICA !!!!
So you think you live in a free country, boy have you got a surprise coming.
A License Required for your HOUSE?
If you own your home you really need to check this out at the end
of this email is the Google link to verify. If the country thinks
the housing market is depressed now, wait until everyone sees this no one
will be buying homes in the future.
We encourage you to read the provisions of the Cap and Trade Bill that
has passed the House of Representatives and being considered by the
Senate. We are ready to join the next march on Washington ! This Congress
and whoever on their staffs that write this junk are truly out to destroy
the middle class of the U.S.A ....
A License will be required for your house...no longer just for cars and
Thinking about selling your house. Take a look at H.R. 2454 (Cap
and trade bill). This is unbelievable!
Only the beginning from this administration! Home owners take note &
tell your friends and relatives who are home owners!
Beginning 1 year after enactment of the Cap and Trade Act, you won't be
able to sell your home unless you retrofit it to comply with the energy
and water efficiency standards of this Act. H.R. 2454, the "Cap
& Trade" bill passed by the House of Representatives, if it is
also passed by the Senate, it will be the largest tax increase any of us
has ever experienced. The Congressional Budget Office (supposedly
non-partisan) estimates that in just a few years the average cost to
every family of four will be $6,800 per year. No one is excluded.
However, once the lower classes feel the pinch in their wallets, you can
be sure these voters get a tax refund (even if they pay no taxes at all)
to offset this new cost. Thus, you Mr. And Mrs. Middle Class America will
have to pay even more since additional tax dollars will be needed to bail
out everyone else..
But wait. This awful bill (that no one in Congress has actually read) has
many more surprises in it. Probably the worst one is this: A year from
now you won't be able to sell your house. Yes, you read that right. The
caveat is (there always is a caveat) that if you have enough money to make
required major upgrades to your home, then you can sell it. But, if not,
then forget it. Even pre-fabricated homes ("mobile homes") are
included. In effect, this bill prevents you from selling your home
without the permission of the EPA administrator. To get this permission,
you will have to have the energy efficiency of your home measured. Then
the government will tell you what your new energy efficiency requirement
is and you will be forced to make modifications to your home under the
retrofit provisions of this Act to comply with the new energy and water
efficiency requirements. Then you will have to get your home measured
again and get a license (called a "label" in the Act) that must
be posted on your property to show what your efficiency rating is; sort
of like the Energy Star efficiency rating label on your refrigerator or
air conditioner. If you don't get a high enough rating, you can't sell.
And, the EPA administrator is authorized to raise the standards every
year, even above the automatic energy efficiency increases built into the
Act. The EPA administrator, appointed by the President, will run the Cap
& Trade program (AKA the "American Clean Energy and Security Act
of 2009") and is authorized to make any future changes to the regulations
and standards he alone determines to be in the government's best
interest. Requirements are set low initially so the bill will pass Congress; then the Administrator can set much tougher new standards every year.
The Act itself contains annual required increases in energy efficiency
for private and commercial residences and buildings. However, the EPA
administrator can set higher standards at any time. Sect. 202 Building
Retrofit Program mandates a national retrofit program to increase the
energy efficiency of all existing homes across America . Beginning 1 year
after enactment of the Act, you won't be able to sell your home unless
you retrofit it to comply with the energy and water efficiency standards
of this Act. You had better sell soon, because the standards will be
raised each year and will be really hard (I.e., ex$pen$ive) to meet in a
few years. Oh, goody! The Act allows the government to give you a grant
of several thousand dollars to comply with the retrofit program
requirements IF you meet certain energy efficiency levels. But, wait, the
State can set additional requirements on who qualifies to receive the
grants. You should expect requirements such as "can't have an income
of more than $50K per year", "home selling price can't be more
than $125K", or anything else to target the upper middle class (and
that's YOU) and prevent them from qualifying for the grants. Most of us
won't get a dime and will have to pay the entire cost of the retrofit out
of our own pockets. More transfer of wealth, more "change you can
believe in." Sect. 204 Building Energy Performance Labeling Program
establishes a labeling program that for each individual residence will
identify the achieved energy efficiency performance for "at least 90
percent of the residential market within 5 years after the date of the
enactment of this Act."
This means that within 5 years 90% of all residential homes in the U.S.
must be measured and labeled. The EPA administrator will get $50M each
year to enforce the labeling program. The Secretary of the Department of
Energy will get an additional $20M each year to help enforce the labeling
program. Some of this money will, of course, be spent on coming up with
tougher standards each year...
Oh, the label will be like a license for your car. You will be required
to post the label in a conspicuous location in your home and will not be
allowed to sell your home without having this label. And, just like your
car license, you will probably be required to get a new label every so
often - maybe every year. But, the government estimates the cost of
measuring the energy efficiency of your home should only cost about $200
each time. Remember what they said about the auto smog inspections when
they first started: that in California it would only cost $15. That was when
the program started. Now the cost is about $50 for the inspection and
certificate; a 333% increase. Expect the same from the home labeling
program. Sect. 304 Greater Energy Efficiency in Building Codes
establishes new energy efficiency guidelines for the National Building
Code and mandates at 304(d) that 1 year after enactment of this Act, all
state and local jurisdictions must adopt the National Building Code
energy efficiency provisions or must obtain a certification from the
federal government that their state and/or local codes have been brought
into full compliance with the National Building Code energy efficiency
