If you own a home or want to buy one – must read this!

 If you own a home or want to buy one – must 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 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/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 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 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.
 
 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.
