We believe the Justice Department should get involved, in concert with the US EPA in order to make sure no victim of toxic Chinese drywall gets left on the curb holding the bag for what always was a foreign policy disaster that required leadership
(PRWEB) October 22, 2012
The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center has been referring to imported toxic Chinese drywall as the Toxic Chinese Drywall Disaster for over two years. Based on their inspections of subdivisions, condominium projects, and or town home developments they estimate there are about 200,000 homes that contain toxic Chinese drywall in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Southeast Texas. There are also well over a thousand homes in Virginia that contain toxic Chinese drywall. The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center is calling the Toxic Chinese Drywall Disaster the worst disaster for US homeowners ever, because of the extremely corrosive gasses being emitted by this building product. The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says, "Talk to any air conditioning repairman in Florida, and ask him about how corrosive toxic Chinese drywall is-when it comes to copper air conditioning coils. Our number one worry is, and always has been if toxic Chinese drywall is corrosive enough to eat through a copper air conditioning coil in about a year-what is it doing to the health of the people who live in these homes? Why has President Obama failed to mention toxic Chinese drywall one time in public since taking office? Why has President Obama failed to publicly demand the Chinese government pay up for the damages caused by their toxic building product? After four years we do not even have a meaningful remediation protocol from the EPA on how to fix one of these homes? How does President Obama have a campaign slogan like Forward-when he has so miserably left so many people behind?" http://ChineseDrywallComplaintCenter.Com
The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says the following items need to happen with respect to the toxic Chinese Drywall Disaster immediately:
- "The Toxic Chinese Drywall Disaster always required leadership. To date there has been none. President Obama needs to immediately task the US EPA with coming up with an ironclad remediation protocol to repair a toxic Chinese drywall home. If these homes cannot be 100% repaired - with safety being the number one concern for current, or future homeowners - these homes should be bulldozed."
- "Banks, and Fannie Mae need to stop selling toxic Chinese drywall homes-AS IS. There needs to be an immediate moratorium on the resale of any toxic Chinese drywall home foreclosure until the US EPA establishes if these homes can be repaired."
- "At the present time the government of China will not take responsibility for their Taishan toxic Chinese drywall product in federal courts. This specific type of toxic Chinese drywall is in over 100,000 US homes in Florida, Virginia, and the extreme US Southeast. Many to most of these homes are now foreclosures. We believe the government of China should be forced to set up a trust account with a court appointed administrator to handle claims from homeowners who have lost it all in one of these toxic homes. This claims process should also include Fannie Mae, and banks that are now stuck with toxic Chinese drywall home foreclosures. Why should the US taxpayer, and or bank shareholders have to pick up the tab for a toxic building product made by a state owned Chinese drywall factory? "
- "President Obama of late is frequently saying leave no one behind. One of the settlements involving a privately owned toxic Chinese drywall maker only includes about one in twenty victims. We believe the Justice Department should get involved, in concert with the US EPA in order to make sure no victim of toxic Chinese drywall gets left on the curb holding the bag for what always was a foreign policy disaster that required leadership, a sense of urgency, and transparency."
The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center will continue to do everything possible to call attention to the Toxic Chinese Drywall Disaster for US homeowners, their families, and the US taxpayers. The group believes something needs to change with respect to the Obama Administration's handling of this disaster. http://ChineseDrywallComplaintCenter.Com
