The Obama administration extended it’s reach into the homes of hundreds of thousands of low income homes – banning smoking by residents of more than 940,000 homes that are subsidized by the federal government. I guess this is just another price to pay when you participate in the federal governments program of HUD homes.
They claim the smoking ban will protect millions of low-income tenants from the effects of secondhand smoke. The move is intended to protect children who live with smokers, as well as their neighbors, who are often exposed to secondhand smoke that travels through shared walls and ceilings. Now we’re expected to believe that smoke travels through walls and ceilings. What bullshit!
This is just another move by the nanny state to control and dominate its population under the pretense that since some people are getting subsidized by the federal government, that somehow gives the government the right to dictate to them how their live their private lives.
Low-income housing residents will still be allowed to smoke, but not inside their homes or within 25 feet of any public housing building.
