The EPA Has Outgrown Its Mandate

Bob Belevedere, at The Camp of the Saints, posts on the EPAs latest forray into regulating invidual’s most personal decisions.  Now they are coming after our homes:

…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 without some bureaucrat’s OK. Yes, you read that right.

The caveat (there always is a caveat) is 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.

As the saying goes, now it is personal.  The government, through the EPA, is trying to regulate trade between individuals.   Currently, sellers are required to disclose to the buyer any known defects the house may have but it remains up to the buyer whether or not they want to buy the house. 

The government crossed the line when it madated through ObamaCare that each of us ourchase health insurance.  Not satisfied with regulating the decisions that we make concerning our bodies they are now coming after our homes.  How many lines will we allow them to cross?
