    If you own a home... you'd better read this

    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
    Obama is up to, and 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 are being considered by the Senate.
    We are ready to join the next march on Washington ! This Congress and their
    "experts" 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
    mobile homes....Thinking about selling your house? Take a look at H.R.
    2454 (Cap and Trade bill). This is unbelievable! Home owners take
    note and tell your friends and relatives who are home owners!
    Beginning one 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 "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 that these voters will get a tax
    refund (even if they pay no taxes at all) to offset this new cost. Thus, you
    Mr. And Mrs. Middle Class 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 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.
    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 required to make modifications to
    your home under the retrofit provisions of this Act, to compl y 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/she 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 new standards every year.
    The Act itself contains annual required increases in energy efficiency for
    private and commercial residences and buildings. However, the EPA
    administrat or 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 one year after enactment of the Act, you won't be able to sell
    your home unless you retrofit it to comply with its energy and water
    efficiency standards. You had better sell soon, because the standards will
    be raised each year and will be really hard (expen$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 (that includes YOU?) and prevent you from qualifying
    for the grants.

    Re: If you own a home... you'd better read this
    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 the EPA. 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.

    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 one 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 standards.

      I have been fighting this on from day one, kind of gives you gas every time I read it.

      We still have these shanty's down here and some still don't have front doors or glass in the windows. Watch, they will be exempt because they are all on welfare.

      One old river rat I buy fishing bait from has 2" slats on his floor. Every time I go there there to buy some Menhaden water moccasins sleeping in the house. We call him Papa and I asked "Papa, how come you don't step on one and get bit. He said he just brooms them through the slats on the way to the bathroom" Now I would like to see one of these Federal energy inspectors check out his place!

        Cap & Trade isn't dead as most people think. nobama will not let this one die (sound familiar) it's simply another tax to re-distribute the wealth. It looks like it may come to a vote on the 26th. of this month.....as in 10 days from now!

          More reason to clean house in November. In the process, need to be sure that all bills presently being considered are scrapped & the new congress must start from scratch.

              Yep, we don't need EPA permission to get rid of that one.....
              There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Bersa Chat Zone!

                Re: If you own a home... you'd better read this

                Guys, the govtrack link goes to last years cap and tax bill. I just downloaded the .pdf and spent an hour searching it for the requirement of "licensing" or any other restriction on home sales. I could not find it.
                Now, that doesn't mean it can't or won't happen in the next version of this garbage. Don't shoot the messenger, I just need to do the legwork and get the facts because I argue with an uber liberal lawyer in my family and he does his homework.

                  taxes? talk is about more fed. tax on gas and the word is so we will cut our dependency on foreign oil (when you read that have your voice go up like you are asking a question poised to you by an idiot). Doesn't it just make you go wtf? This tax is for the carbon footprint and part of cap and trade.......we are in one f'd up country.....there has got to be someone out there with an answer....not just change you can believe in...someone with some common sense.... As for this crazy thing in this thread...I have a house that is nearly 100 years old.....I'd have to fill the top floor and attic with foam to qualify.....we, are screwed!
