Obomba; Sequester Cuts Will Result In “Thousands” Of Lead-Poisioned Kids!…
#1
Quote:The automatic spending cuts to the federal budget that will take place beginning March 1 unless sequestration is prevented could expose thousands of children to lead poisoning and other toxins, according to Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan.

“Cuts to our office of healthy homes and lead hazard control and related programs would result in more than 3,000 of the most vulnerable children not being protected from lead poisoning or other hazards in their homes,” Donovan said Thursday at a hearing on the sequester portion of the Budget Control Act of 2012.

The Senate Appropriations Committee held the hearing to allow members of President Barack Obama’s cabinet – including Donovan, Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano – to detail the damage that would be done with the implementation of the federal statute, which was signed into law by President Barack Obama on Aug. 2, 2011.

Lead paint has been banned since 1977. Any time a home is redone or a room is repainted it is NOT with lead paint.

WTF have these housing authorities been spending their money on, and HOW THE FUCK are they still having lead paint in their properties 35+ years later?????

If they really care about kids eating lead, they'll stop importing toys from China. Wink

My grandparents' house was painted with lead paint and I was there all the time growing up. I think the kids who eat lead paint are the same who like to eat paste and dirt on the playground....You know the ones that are kind of "off" to begin with. Lead paint lasts forever, doesn't really do much so long as you leave it alone. My house currently has asbestos siding, same deal, leave it alone and you're fine. I have no interest in removing the siding from my house either. It looks just like the day it was built in the 50's and the shingles are encased in about 5 layers of latex paint so nothing Is going to escape unless you go out there with a hammer and break them up. I imagine unless we get a tornado it will carry on looking brand new until the day I die. Amazing material. Damn sure don't make em' like they used to. EPA scaremongering keeping themselves in business IMO.

If you wonder how lead paint can still be around drive to Philly sometime, you can still make out the business names on abandoned factories that have been there since the 1800's! Imagine how long it lasts without the sun and weather beating on it...

I pray the R's hold and when it happens, and NOTHING HAPPENS (since there are NO CUTS) some folks will wake up to the PrOpagundizer.

I'm waiting for them to say the sequester cuts will leave the US open to terrorist attacks!....give it a few days....

Nope! Here it is:

ERIC HOLDER: TODAY THE COUNTRY IS LESS SAFE. Attorney General Eric Holder says the country is less safe because of the across-the-board spending cuts that go into effect today and that those who claim the administration has been fear mongering about the cuts simply don't have the facts straight. "This is something that is gonna have an impact on the safety of this country, and anybody who says that that's not true is either lying or saying something that runs contrary to the facts," Holder told ABC's Senior Justice Department Correspondent Pierre Thomas in an exclusive interview, pointing out that F.B.I. agents, ATF agents, and prosecutors will be furloughed because of the cuts. "We are gonna be a nation that is gonna be less safe, and that is a simple fact." The attorney general got emotional when talking about the Newtown tragedy, saying the day he toured Sandy Hook Elementary School after the shooting was his "worst day as attorney general." "Walking through Sandy Hook Elementary School and going into those classrooms and seeing the caked blood, seeing the crime scene photos of these little angels, was the most difficult thing that I've ever had to do in my professional life."

If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
