According to an Obamacare provision millions of Americans will be targeted.
The Health and Human Services’ website states that your family will be targeted if you fall under the “high-risk” categories below:
Families where mom is not yet 21.
Families where someone is a tobacco user.
Families where children have low sr face.

Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States.
I think I got in on this story pretty early. I am still not sure why the person we are in contact with had his house searched because of his cigarette use even though ObamaCare hasn't started yet, we are wondering if the program is starting to gather information early.edit on 27-9-2013 by darkbake because: (no reason given)edit on Mon Oct 14 2013 by DontTreadOnMe because: attempt to fix codeextra DIV
it was a great thing. They looked at some study that spanned 20 years that showed that home visits improve “at-risk” families, specifically those families with pre-maturely born babies and Down syndrome kids.
“Home visits by nurses or other trained health professionals can improve the development of preterm infants, parenting and the home environment, according to a new review of recent research… The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, has set aside funding for home visiting programs for at-risk families to improve outcomes for mothers and their babies born prematurely… There are 400 such programs currently providing care to at least 500,000 U.S. families, largely funded by state and local governments.”
What the Reuters article doesn’t mention is all those families who will be considered “at-risk.” Here are some other criteria under Obamacare that could be used against you to justify a “home inspection” by a local, state or federal government official:
Families with pregnant women who have not attained age 21.
Families that have a history of child abuse or neglect or have had interactions with child welfare services.
Families that have a history of substance abuse or need substance abuse treatment.
Families that have users of tobacco products in the home.
Families that are or have children with low student achievement.
Families with children with developmental delays or disabilities.
Families who, or that include individuals who, are serving or formerly served in the Armed Forces, including such families that have members of the Armed Forces who have had multiple deployments outside of the United States.

yea.. so at that point it would be all hell breaking loose..
What was hailed as 'good' in the 70's is now bad. One day we are told red wine is good for us, the next it is dangerous.
reply to post by AsktheanimalsThanks for believing me, I am just saying what I heard. After hearing about it, I did a quick check online to see if there was any evidence about the policy and there was.
About The Obama Administration knowing no constitutional bounds, it really does not. Or, it knows them, and knows them well enough to get around them.
Well... Old Daddy Roberts will be happy to take little Barry out behind the wood shed and educate him again on Constitutional matters. He seems one dumb President on the matter...for a man with a Harvard education on Constitutional law.
