Sec. 4 To legislate a 3% annual COLA at Sec. 225(i) 42USC425(i) retroactive to January 1, 2016 under Sec. 204(c) 42USC§404(c) and a minimum wage of 'not less than 3% annual growth, rounded to the nearest nickel, from $7.50 an hour in 2016, to $7.75 in 2017, to $8.00 an hour in 2018 etc. under 29USC§206(a)(1).

 

Sec. 5 To amend Computation of Benefits Section 215(i) of the Social Security Act 42USC(7)§415(i) - Cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) increases in benefits (1) for the purposes of this section (A) the term "OASDI fund ratio", with respect to any calendar year, means the ratio of - (i) the combined balance in the Federal Old-Age and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund and the Federal Disability Insurance Trust Fund as of the beginning of such year, including the taxes transferred under section 401(a) of this title on the first day of such year and reduced by the outstanding amount of any loan (including interest thereon) theretofore made to either such Fund from the Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund under section 401(l) of this title, to (ii) the total amount which (as estimated by the Commissioner of Social Security) will be paid from the Federal Old-Age and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund and the Federal Disability Insurance Trust Fund during such calendar year for all purposes authorized by section 401 of this title (other than payments of interest on, or repayments of, loans from the Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund under section 401(l) of this title), but excluding any transfer payments between such trust funds and reducing the amount of any transfers to the Railroad Retirement Account by the amount of any transfers into either such trust fund from that Account; in any calendar year for which the OASDI fund ratio is more than 20.0 percent.  (B) provided there is a combined trust fund ratio greater than 20.0 percent (i) If the Consumer Price Index for the Elderly exceeds for the previous year exceeds 3% retirees shall receive a percentage increase equal to the CPI for the Elderly, for the previous year, or (ii) if the Consumer Price Index for the previous year exceeds 3% the disabled shall receive a percentage increase equal to the CPI for the previous year.  (C) If the Commissioner of Social Security determines that a calendar year is also a cost-of-living computation year, the Commissioner shall publish a determination that a benefit increase is resultantly required and the percentage thereof. (D) In all normal years since the 1980s inflation has been around 3% and therefore the COLA shall be 3%. 

 

Sec. 6 To protect Streamlining of procedures for enrollment through an Exchange and state medicaid, CHIP and health subsidy programs 42USC§18083 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and repeal the rest of Subchapter 4 Affordable Coverage Choices for All Americans Parts A & B 42USC§18071-18084 in order to abolish the refundable premium and cost-sharing reductions for the relief of the Treasury budget by profitable health insurance corporations from January 1, 2016.

 

Sec. 7 To legislate a 2.5% health annuity and lead ACA and other private health insurance corporations to credit customers with the difference between the new 2.5% health annuity rule of January 1, 2016 and the 20% ACA premium increase and cruelest and most unusual 50% Medicare part B inflation in premium price, ever, it seems best to amend the Amount of Premiums Section 1839 of Title XVII of the Social Security 42USC§1395r(a)(1) The monthly actuarial rate for enrollees age 65 and over shall be equal with all people who would otherwise be eligible for Medicare Part B because they are Old Age Survivor Disability Insurance (OASDI) beneficiaries. The premium is designed to afford one-third of the total of the benefits and administrative costs estimated to be payable per capita from the Federal Supplementary Medical Insurance Trust Fund for services performed and related administrative costs incurred in such calendar year with respect to such enrollees and any credit due. (a) The inflation adjustment of the monthly premium of each individual enrolled is calculated at 2.5% annual inflation from the premium price of $104.90 in 2015 rounded to the nearest 5 cents, $107.50 January 2016 to December 2016, before it goes up to $110.20 in January 2017 and increases 2.5% every year thereafter (b) The SMI deductible was $147 in 2015 and will be $151 in 2016 and $154 in 2017, etc. The Drug benefit deductible was $320 in 2015, would be $330 in 2016, $340 in 2017, etc. In the Drug program the initial benefit limit and catastrophic threshold, rounded to the nearest dollar, of $2,960 and $4,700 in 2015 respectively, would be $3,034 and $4,818 in 2016, etc. (c) the 2.5% health annuity applies equally to all private health insurance programs, specifically ACA marketplace plans in regards to credit best settled in the sixth month of 2016.

 

Sec. 8 To amend Annual Reports Sec. 1161 of Title 11 of the Social Security Act 42USC(7)XI-B§1320c-10 so that the Commissioner of Social Security will sign a combined Federal OASDI Trust Fund and SSI Program Report and the Administrator of CMS would sign a combined Annual Report on the Federal Medicare, Medicaid and Affordable Care Act (ACA) due June 20th for perennial summer solstice issue beginning in 2016.

 

Sec. 9 The amend the term of Commissioner from 6 to 2 years under Sec. 702(a)(3) of the Social Security Act 42USC(7)VII§902(a)(3) and the pay from Level I executive, to maximum allowable disability and retirement.

 

Sec. 10 To legislate a new ‘United Nations Contribution: 1% to 2% of income suggested’ row on IRS form 1040.

 

Sec. 11 To abolish the Other Defense Civil Programs row, deducting the amount from that year's undistributed offsetting receipts before 2009, and the Allowances row, from White House Office of Management and Budget (WHOMB) historical outlays by agency table 4.1 to reduce the deficit and debt since 2009.

 

Title 2 Without Income Limit Law

 

Sec. 12 To abolish the maximum taxable limit on DI contributions on January 1, 2016 and OASI contributions January 1, 2017 and repeal Adjustment of the contribution and benefit base Section 230 of the Social Security Act 42USC(7)§430.

 

Sec. 13 To require the Social Security Administration to pay for SSI Costs beginning January 1, 2017.

 

Sec. 14 To share profits in excess of social security program costs with the general fund of the U.S Treasury on a negotiable sliding scale beginning year end 2016 DI 50/50 with the USPS, and OASI in 2017 to eliminate the true federal budget deficit and maximize welfare payments. Even without any new sources of revenues, a 2.5% health annuity should graduate the White House Office of Management and Budget (WHOMB) with revisions of Treasury, Health, Human Services Department totals and Department of the Military name. Therefore there shall be a maximum allowable deficit (mad) of $100 billion to prioritize paying child poverty with one SSI monthly benefit in 2017 so as to at least end child poverty and reduce overall poverty by half by 2020. In 2020, if the federal budget is balanced, the nation will be able afford to guarantee everyone a poverty line income. OASDI will save to pay for the peak in costs of Baby Boomer generation in 2035 when the overall OASDI tax rate might be raised from 12.4%.

 

Maternity Leave Act

 

Sec. 15 'Maternity leave' amends Demonstration projects in Section 305 of the Social Security Act 42USC§505

 

(a) To expedite the reemployment of individuals who have established a benefit year to claim unemployment compensation under the State law the Secretary of Labor shall fulfill the 14 months of paid leave authorized for Maternity Leave by International Labor Organization (ILO) Convention No. 183 (2000).

 

(1) The Family and Medical Leave Act shall be repealed except in that workers' positions who have served their benefit year, shall continue to be entitled to up to twelve weeks of (unpaid) sick leave, 14 weeks of maternity leave and 24 weeks to care for an injured armed service-member.

 

(2) Employers shall provide at least 3 weeks of paid leave annually to uphold the Holiday with Pay ILO Convention No. 132 (1970).

 

(b) On production of a medical certificate, stating the presumed date of childbirth, a woman shall be entitled to a period of maternity leave of not less than 14 weeks. Cash benefits shall be provided at a level which ensures that the woman can maintain herself and her child in proper conditions of health and with a suitable standard of living.

 

(1) Where a woman does not meet the conditions to qualify for cash benefits under national laws and regulations or in any other manner consistent with national practice, she shall be entitled to adequate benefits out of social assistance funds, subject to the means test required for eligibility for such assistance, from the Supplemental Security Income Program for the Aged, Blind and Disabled under Sec. 1611 of Title XVI of the Social Security Act 42USC§1382.

 

(2) Medical benefits shall be provided for the woman and her child. Medical benefits shall include prenatal, childbirth and postnatal care, as well as hospitalization care when necessary.

 

Title 4 Torture Compensation and Slavery Convention Amendments

 

Sec. 16 Torture 18USC§2340A(a) amended so 'outside the United States' is removed so - Whoever commits or attempts to commit torture shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both, and if death results to any person from conduct prohibited by this subsection, shall be punished by death or imprisoned for any term of years or for life. Exclusive Remedies 18USC§2340B replaced with ‘The State shall ensure in its legal system that the victim of an act of torture obtains redress and has an enforceable right to fair and adequate compensation, including the means for as full rehabilitation as possible. In the event of the death of the victim as a result of an act of torture, his dependents shall be entitled to compensation under Art. 14 of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment of 26 June 1987’. To repeal the word 'enforcement' in federal education statute, offending the Slavery Convention of 1926 in at least two places yesterday (a) 'enforcement of Section 111' at 20USC§112 needs to be repealed like Prohibition under the 21st Amendment (1933) and, (b) the words 'enforcement of' must be removed from the caption of Part 1200 so that it states, Nondiscrimination on the basis of Handicap in programs or activities conducted by the National Council on Disability at the end of Education statute 34CFR§1200.170, and (c) General Definitions of the Office of Museum and Library Services at 20USC§9101(1) replaced with (1) No stalking in the library 18USC§2261A(2). 'Enforcement' also needs to be repealed from Child Support in Title IV-D of the Social Security Act 42USC§666 et seq. Passing these amendments the USA should be qualified to ratify the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2006), the International Labor Organization Conventions Holiday with Pay Convention No. 132 (1970) and Maternity Leave Convention 183 (2000), will reduce poverty by half and eliminate child poverty in schools or completely end poverty by 2020. Blessed are the poor (Matthew 5:3).

 

Enactment clause

 

2016 Annual Report to the Board of Trustees of the Federal Old Age Survivor Disability Insurance Trust Fund and Supplemental Security Program HA-6-6-16

 

The 2016 Annual Report to the Board of Trustees of the Federal Old Age Survivor Disability Insurance (OASDI) Trust Fund and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Program is the first annual summer solstice report of the Commissioner of the Social Security Administration (SSA) and Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on the federal social security income and health insurance programs as they relate to the federal budget surplus/deficit.  Currently nearly 62 million people in the United States receive social security benefits.  There are about 41 million retirement and survivor insurance beneficiaries and nearly 21 million disability beneficiaries - 14 million paid by the disability insurance (DI) trust fund and nearly 9 million by SSI.   These numbers are higher than are normally reported, because previously no one added DI and SSI benefits to come up with a total number of disability beneficiaries.  Previously OASDI and SSI were treated by two separate annual reports on inauspicious days, April 1st and May 20th respective of the Actuary and Commissioner.  Medicare also made a solo appearance in an April Fool’s day report and Medicaid and public health and human services spending were unequally accounted for in the Health and Human Services (HHS) budget-in-brief.  About 47 million OASDI beneficiaries pay a premium for Medicare Part B Supplemental Medical Insurance (SMI) and SSI beneficiaries are eligible for free Medicaid coverage.  The 2015-16 50% Medicare Part B premium increase was held harmless but the 20% ACA premium was not and consumer credit is needed to redress the overpayment and establish the 2015 agreed rate + 2.5% health annuity from the 7th month of 2016.  By passing the Social Security Amendments of January 1, 2016 the United States would balance the FY 2017 budget and increase SSI spending to afford the families of 16 million poor children one SSI benefit by summer solstice 2017 and end poverty by 2020.  The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was successful at reducing the rate of uninsured adults from 22% in 2013 to 16% in 2014.  However, the 15.9% increase in Medicaid enrollment was accompanied by a 15.3% decrease in full time employment in the health sector and overall spending growth for Medicaid must revised downward to 3% so as not to be too retroactive about reducing the price of hospital bills to private health insurance companies.  The HHS budget-in-brief Medicare baseline was hacked to mock the price of a package of premium pre-rolled cigarettes times 100 billion and now the military is the only accurate federal spending account valued over $500 billion. ACA subsidies are distorting Treasury budget and must be repealed from January 1, 2016.  Treasury spending growth that should be stabilized at 3% taking into consideration the average 3.4% rate of t-bond interest and 2.5% administrative wage growth. The ultimate assumption on inflation is that in all health spending a 2.5% health annuity shall be adopted beginning January 1, 2016 to ensure national health expenditures (NHE) of less than 10% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 2025 with the new National Association of Insurance Commissioners and Center for Health Insurance Policy crunched private health insurance statistics that prove NHE never exceeded 15% of GDP.  With a 2.5% health annuity from January 1, 2016 and SSA taking responsibility for SSI the true federal budget should turn a small surplus FY 2017 and continue to produce larger and larger surpluses to pay back the true federal debt or end poverty in the United States sooner than 2020.

 

I have enough red tail hawk feathers in my hat for the Board of Trustees to sign.  Carolyn Colvin zero.  The Attorney General has been asked to defend my national accounts by investigating the 2.5% health annuity (HHS Secretary) and advising the trustees regarding truancy from January 1, 2016.  The two trustee positions are vacant and have been replaced in one position in a new re-organization.  Gong through the motions of bankruptcy however has neither done the OASDI tax rate calculus nor been filed in a court of subversive mathematical outcomes.  Why talk to a Court when SSA could just email numero veinte-cuatro who happens to be running for Social Security Commissioner under the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities of 2006 this summer of 2016 I turn 42 on August 11?  For the enlightenment of the Perseid meteors I hope to have Attorney General Ethics (AGE) pages numbered and edited with the world humanitarian report regarding the rise in accountability for internally displaced people cell-phone and email wide and naturalization being the conventional method of reducing statelessness by Independence Day and Public Health Department (PHD) epidemics treated with a sixth volume on Reproduction to my medical textbook, by my birthday, but the 2015-2020 edition can be delayed as long as Rod Blagojevich’s pardon and I prioritize helping the United States pass the Social Security Amendments of January 1, 2016 to end poverty by 2020.  Jacob Lew’s signature might help my family’s cell phones out of his inferior investigative benefit bureau, as fraudulent as the HHS disability research is deadly, who conspire to interfere with confidential matters to distract attention from the hacking of the HHS budget-in briefs FY 2016-17 and the abolition of the neoplastic refundable premium and cost-sharing reductions subsidies that distort Treasury futures so Affordable Care Act consumers would receive credit for the difference between the +/- 20% inflation and a 2.5% health annuity from January 1, 2016.  Does the Harvard administration advise a legacy of child non-support in the clearly designated HA sabotage receptacle or pay all 16 million poor American children growing up in poverty a SSI benefit and balance the FY 2017 budget?  Please sign the reasonable ex post facto tax on the rich to secure the salvation of the disability insurance trust fund and pay the USPS deficit by year-end FY 2016 so I don’t have to redo my estimates a third time to account for the tax evasion of Congress, Health and Human Services and rich, rich, Senator Sanders, who never put the Summer Solstice Instructions (SSI) in the hopper to supplement the general Welfare under 1USC§202.
