Title 1 Summer Solstice Instructions

 

§1 Annual Reports

 

A. To amend Annual Reports Sec. 1161 of Title 11 of the Social Security Act 42US§1320c-10 to change the due date from April 1 to summer solstice (June 20-21). Each year the Trustees of the Social Security and Medicare trust funds report on the current and projected financial status of the two programs in April. The Trustees are required to Report to the Congress not later than the summer solstice of each year on the operation and status of the Trust Fund during the preceding fiscal year and on its expected operation and status during the current fiscal year and the next 2 fiscal years. They are to Report immediately when the amount of the Trust Fund is unduly small, less than 20% of the budget. The Trustees also review the general policies followed in managing the Trust Fund, and recommend changes in such policies, including necessary changes in the provisions of law which govern the way in which tardiness is to be managed:

 

1. The tax on the rich to end poverty by 2020 and end child poverty CY18 by repealing the Adjustment of the contribution and benefit base under Section 230 of the Social Security Act 42USC§430. To prioritize child poverty, before taxing the rich, with current revenues, Congress and Commissioner must immediately make insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) and orphan as qualifying disabilities for full SSI benefits $777 (2019). The poor, children first, shall be paid with SSI when the contribution base is expanded to include incomes over the maximum taxable limit. By 2020 all 50 million poor people will receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Eliminating tax havens is a sustainable development goal. In the case regarding the maximum taxable limit, failure to pay legal child support obligations under 18USC§228(b) may be treated as attempt to evade or defeat tax under 26USC§7201.

 

2. To sustain the Disability Insurance (DI) trust fund a 2.2% DI 10.2% OASDI tax rate is needed for CY19 now that all the Baby Boomers have retired. The OASDI tax rate must protect the smaller trust fund from being depleted. Since 2000 the Actuary has not demonstrated the ability to do the required calculus, enabling the DI trust fund to be depleted, except for the temporary and illegible DI tax rate of 2.37% CY16-18 under the Bipartisan Budget Act. The recidivism to a 1.8% DI tax rate is overruled to protect the smaller trust fund from further abuse. The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 recidivated by providing special funding for unnecessary disability redetermination propaganda to deprive beneficiaries of their subsistence. The Actuary robbed some people, threatened a 0.2% COLA and has still never gotten the OASDI tax rate calculation right in the 2016 Annual Report. If the collection of information by the agency is unnecessary for any reason, the agency may not engage in the collection of information. Sections 811, 824, 831, 832, 834 and 842 must be repealed and abolished as unnecessary under the Paperwork Reduction Act 44USC§3508. Section 833 pertaining to the 2.37% DI tax rate was only good for a no COLA year in 2016 and the 303% trust fund ratio offends Sec. 215(i) of the Social Security Act 42USC§415(i) under 18USC§246.

 

3. To refund as much as $500 million over-payment due as many as 50,000 faultless beneficiaries, who survived, including under Title 1 State Old Age Insurance Programs, whose benefits were cut from a reasonable rate to $600-$699 pursuant to the Social Security Caucus of 2011. Theft of benefits is not immune under Sec. 204(c) of the Social Security Act under 42USC§404(c) from the rational basis test of deprivation or relief benefits under 18USC§246 or the theft and bribery of government programs under 18USC§666 higher scrutiny reveals. This overpayment must be redressed as an overpayment under 26USC§6401. The right to benefits is immune from garnishment an legal process, specifically from federal student loans due to the hyper-inflation in tuition, under Sec. 207(a) of the Social Security Act under 42USC§407(a). So as not to rob beneficiaries, with a biblical threat to capture and kill to make up for any calculation errors, SSA must promise to automatically pay social security beneficiaries $700 a month after 42 months between $600 and $699 a month (Revelation 13:10).

 

4. A Supplemental Medical Insurance (SMI) overpayment credit from 2016 is due under 26USC§6401. Because premium inflation is held harmless as a ratio of 2.5% health insurance premium growth to 3% COLA and there was zero COLA CY16, 0.3% COLA CY17, and 2.7% COLA planned for CY 18 for total COLA over the three year period of 3%, therefore it is easy to calculate 2.5% growth to $107.50 CY 18. The adoption of this 2.5% health insurance premium growth rate for 3% COLA CY 18 is the only way that SMI can be held harmless under Sec. 1840 of the Social Security Act 42USC§1395s. Furthermore, the ACA and Medicare owe beneficiaries, more than the refundable premium and cost-sharing reduction Treasury spending row can afford to pay, for the premium hyper-inflation since CY15. It is only a matter of time before the Center for Medicaid Services (CMS) will abolish the Medicare Actuary and finance state/federal Medicaid with the Hospital Insurance tax of the people under the Hill-Burton Act principle of treating the poor for free in exchange for subsidies.

 

B. Social security is an internationally recognized human right, for those aged and disabled people who live below the poverty line, and also for those who have contributed to the fund their entire working lives. Social security tends to the needs of (1) the sick; (2) those in need; (3) those without necessary financial resources; and (4) those likely to suffer without aid. The Actuary must begin to account for both OASDI and SSI beneficiaries in one annual report that is due on the summer solstice. As of CY17 SSA is estimated to pay 50 million OASI + 11 million DI + 9 million SSI = 70 million benefits.

 

§2 Growth Rules, 2.5% Administration, 3% Benefits

 

A. As a rule of law agency spending increases 2.5% annually, in-kind welfare and cash benefits increase 3% and cash welfare benefit programs 4%. Engel’s Law anticipates that with rising incomes, the share of expenditures for food and other products declines. The Iron Law of Wages is that if wages rise above subsistence level, they produce inflation, which in turn forces wages down to subsistence level again. Since 1980 inflation has been brought under control worldwide and is estimated to run at 2.7% in the interim. To maximize economic growth and employment, while minimizing inflation, it is necessary for government and industry spending to stabilize the income growth of the poor at 3% to stay ahead of inflation and purchase more affordable consumer products that sustain the global economy, while workers, whose career income is considered satisfactory and mostly improved by promotion or education, must compete with new hires for 2.5%.

 

1. To legislate an automatic minimum wage three percent, should be affordable to employers so that irregular large increases in federal minimum wage do not result in layoffs due to private labor budget constraints, rounded to the nearest nickel, from $7.25 an hour 2009-2017 to '$7.50 in 2018 and three percent more every year thereafter.' in one final sentence under 29USC§206(a)(1)(D).

 

2. To blame the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) cuts of Halloween 2013 and Thanksgiving 2016 on neoplastic subsidy inflation for the Commodity Credit Corporation 30.6% growth FY 16- FY 18 that must be scaled back or abolished. The USDA FY 18 outlays could grow at approximately 1% growth in Commodity Credit Insurance Corporation, 2.5% in all other non-welfare categories + 3% rate of SNAP growth = 2.75% USDA outlay growth from $151 billion FY 17 to $156 billion FY 18.

 

3. To pay a 3% annual increase in benefits for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) in normal years when beneficiary population growth is around 1% so total program spending growth = 4%. 15.9% growth in TANF spending from $17.3 billion FY 16 to $20.1 billion FY 17 must be sustained at 4% growth to $20.9 billion FY 18 rather than reduced to $17.3 billion FY 17 by the $17.3 billion misinformation contained in the Annualized Continuing Resolution FY 17 to $15.1 billion FY 18. ACF FY 17 spending growth is the only federal agency with high levels of growth that must be sustained, albeit at normal rates FY 18. ACF has the burden of proving Full Time Employment (FTEs) and the accurate administration of TANF benefits.

 

4. To pay social security beneficiaries a three percent (3%) annual COLA (Cost-of-Living Adjustment) to stay ahead of 2.7% average annual consumer price index (CPI) inflation, in all years the OASDI trust fund ratio is >20% under Section 215(i) of the Social Security Act 42USC(7)§415(i).

 

a. To pay $777 SSI benefits, despite the attrition caused by $733 (2016) + 0.3% COLA = $735 (2017), that wants a 5.7% COLA. Because the number of OASI beneficiaries is growing very fast due to the retirement of the baby boomers, about 4% annually, a 5.7% COLA is too much to afford to pay all 70 million social security beneficiaries the back-payment they are due. Settlement can be reached with the Actuary at 2.7% COLA CY 18 to learn to respect the stability of the 2.7% CPI inflation CY18, and account for 3% COLA to exactly $777 SSI CY19 and stabilize under the 3% COLA law every year thereafter.

 

5. To pay a 3% increase in federal spending on in-kind welfare programs like food stamps, housing assistance, unemployment compensation for middle-income contributors for more than a year, social work, and maybe social security administration so % new hires + % raise = 3%.  The Treasury should renegotiate spending growth at 3.3% to afford the 3.4% average interest rate on t-bonds.  Unemployment compensation should stabilize at 3% annual growth. The 0.3% growth rate may constitute a terrorist attempt to coerce the unemployment compensation program into buying a defective 6 week maternity leave policy although it would be wiser to adopt 14 weeks of paid maternity protection to comply with ILO convention No. 183 (2000). The Social Security Actuary certainly didn't file a timely 2017 annual report after anemic 0.3% COLA CY17. HUD budget FY 18 proposes to reduce Public and Indian Housing spending by -3% when in-kind welfare programs should grow 3% annually. Whereas the FY 18 HUD budget is about 64% public housing the HUD budget should grow an average of 2.8% annually from the agreed upon $38 billion figure FY15 as a guide for stabilizing HUD outlays. HUD made a $1.2 billion addition error regarding FY18 outlays trying to comply with the President's $40.7 billion FY 18 estimate, down from his high estimate of $46.9 billion FY17. If public housing were to grow 3% from FY 17 total spending would be $43,738 million FY 18. This is however more than 2.8% from $38 billion FY 15 and now that HUD is trying to stabilize budget estimates, it is necessary that welfare beneficiaries share in the total cuts, but -3% is criminal, zero growth is $42,918 million FY 2018 that should be okay while HUD proves they have administrated the benefits promised by large increases.

 

6. To pay health and education 2.5% growth. Although health and education are normally considered in-kind welfare due 3% growth, growth must be temporarily limited by law to 2.5% annually. Education department spending growth has a long history of fluctuating wildly, from very high to slightly negative, at a net cost that is much more expensive than stable growth. Education spending is recommended to grow at a rate of 2.5% until college tuition prices go down to be worth 3% annual federal spending growth. All categories of health inflation, particularly that of health insurance premiums must be reduced to 2.5% until national health expenditure is less than 10% of GDP.

 

7. To calculate government administration, maximum benefits, managerial and professional wage growth % raise + % new hires = 2.5%. For example, the Defense is troubled by the “pre-decisional” levy for war from $582 billion to $606 billion FY 17 and then to $639 billion FY 18. Because the FY 17 budget total growth is anemic and the FY 18 on steroids, the compromise is to stabilize Defense spending at 2.5% annual growth from $580 billion FY16 to $595 billion FY 17 to $609 billion FY 18 so end-strength might grow at 0.9% annually from 2,882,000 FY 16 to 2,907,938 FY 17 to 2,934,109 FY 18 and enjoy the 1.6% basic pay raise FY17 and thereafter in peace.

 

§3 Labor Act

 

To begin to reverse the alarming increase in child poverty from 15.4% in 1996 to 22-33% in 2017 the federal minimum wage must automatically increase from $7.25 an hour 2009-2017 to '$7.50 in 2018 and 3% every year thereafter.' under 29USC§206(a)(1)(D).

 

To replace Demonstration Projects with 'Maternity Protection' Section 305 of the Social Security Act 42USC§505.

 

(a) To expedite the reemployment of mothers who have established a benefit year to claim unemployment compensation under State law the Secretary of Labor shall pay unemployment compensation for 14 weeks of Maternity Protection under International Labor Organization (ILO) Convention No. 183 (2000).

 

(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.

 

(c) Employers shall provide at least 3 weeks of paid leave annually to uphold the Holiday with Pay ILO Convention No. 132 (1970) and Workers with Family Responsibilities Convention No. 156 (1981). Employers shall provide up to 12 week of unpaid leave to care for the severe sickness of a child under the Family and Medical Leave Act of February 5, 1993 (PL-303-3).

 

Title 2 Disability Insurance Reallocation Tax

 

§4 Disability Insurance Tax Rate

 

1. To amend the DI tax rate from 1.80% in 2015, to 2.37% in 2016-2018, to 2.20% in 2019, when the Baby Boomers shall be retired. The disability rate should stabilize at 2.20% in the intermediate term to allow for growth in compassionate allowances for adult orphan and insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) workers who have contributed to the OASDI Trust Fund.

 

a. To increase the DI tax rate from 1.80% CY15, to 2.37% CY16-CY18 under the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, to 2.20% CY 19 and thereafter. To increase the 0.9% DI tax CY15 to 1.1% DI tax for employee and employer CY19 under Sec. 201(b)(1)(S) of the Social Security Act 42USC§401.

 

§5 Old Age Survivor Insurance Tax Rate

 

1. To adjust the OASI tax rate from 10.60% CY15, to 10.20% CY19 and thereafter to prevent the DI fund from being depleted and OASI Trust Fund from premature deficit.

 

a. To decrease the 5.30% OASI tax CY15 to 5.10% CY19, for employee and employer. To adjust the OASDI tax rates without increasing the overall 12.4% OASDI tax rate under 26USC§3101 and 26USC§3111 or 15.3% OASDI and Hospital Insurance (HI) Federal Insurance Contribution Act tax-rate under 26USC§1401 or burdening Congress.

 

Title 5 Without Income Limit Law

 

§6 Repeal the maximum taxable limit on OASDI contributions

 

To repeal the Adjustment of the contribution and benefit base Section 230 of the Social Security Act 42USC(7)§430 to pay 16-24 million poor children an SSI benefits in 2018 and end poverty in the United States by 2020.

 

§7 To require SSA to pay for SSI

 

To require the Social Security Administration (SSA) to pay for SSI costs with new OASDI tax revenues.

 

§8 No t-bond sales

 

Taxing the rich more than $272 billion in 2018 might shock the stock exchange. Therefore, to prevent harm, the Treasury shall not sell any t-bonds to the public when this tax goes into effect. Special issue bonds for the Social Security trust funds and other government trust funds shall continue to be renegotiated to achieve a 3.4% annual increase in Treasury spending on interest on the national debt. The rich are not being taxed 12.4% by OASDI to pay for federal accounting errors. The rich are being taxed to end child poverty in 2018 and poverty in the United States by 2020 by expanding the SSI program. Increased consumer spending should sustain economic growth.

 

Title 4 IRS Form 1040

 

§9 Voluntary 1-2% of Income United Nations (UN) Contribution

 

To legislate a new ‘United Nations Contribution: 1% to 2% of income suggested donation’ row on IRS form 1040. Annual UN donations levied shall be accounted for as both revenues and state department outlays in the OMB Historical Tables for zero change to the surplus/deficit. All money levied by this tax shall be given to the UN. Un-administered funds shall be invested by the UN and developing recipient nations. State recipients of these UN funds are expected to spend at least two-thirds on cash benefits for people living below the international poverty line of $1.90 a day (2015) and the other third on infrastructure, health, education and government for the poor.

 

Title 5 Postal Service

 

§10 Refund Postal Service Retirement Health Benefits

 

A. The USPS is the operator of the largest civilian vehicle fleet in the world. On a typical day, more than 600,000 men and women of the United States Postal Service ensure that hundreds of millions of pieces of mail are delivered to 156 million delivery points, including more than 43 million rural businesses and residences across the country. The USPS employed 617,254 workers (as of February 2015) and operated 211,264 vehicles in 2014. USPS had a good year FY 16, they even produced an Annual Report to Congress. FY2016 had total revenue of $71.5 billion and total expenses of $77.1 billion, resulting in a net loss of $5.6 billion, nearly exactly equal to the legal mandate in the Postal Service Retiree Health Benefits Fund (PSRHBF) pre-funding expense that reduced the Postal Services' $601 million to $2.7 billion FY 16 surplus, with which to pay $55 billion in debt, to a “controlling income”. OMB however concocted a scheme to profit from the USPS without decisively repealing PSRHBF and is causing criminal damage to unlawfully dictate an enormous employee and consequential revenue cut FY 18. Since the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act of 2006 (P.L. 109–435) began robbing the postal service $5.5 billion annually for retiree health insurance contributions USPS has cut its expenses by $15 billion annually, but first-class mail volume has continued to drop and debt, termed net deficiency, has risen to $55.9 billion FY 16 and increases at around $5.5 billion annually. The USPS has not directly received taxpayer-dollars since the early 1980s and only wants to be left alone.

 

1. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) owes the Postal Service compensation for the disastrous 2006 Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act (P.L. 109–435) that created the Postal Service Retiree Health Benefits Fund to put the Postal Service on a path that fully funds its substantial retiree (annuitant) health benefits liabilities. Since the Act's passage in 2006, the Postal Service contributed over $50 billion to the Retiree Health Benefits Fund. Although it defaulted on $34 billion in total required payments since FY 2012 the $5.8 billion FY16 contribution continues to be the entire reason for the USPS deficit. OPM must reimburse the Postal Service Retiree Health Fund to pay off the >$55.9 USPS debt. Beginning in 2017, the Act requires the Postal Service to begin a 27-year amortization to retire its unfunded liability under CSRS by paying for “actuarial costs of the unfunded liability for post-retirement health costs of current employees” = zero benefits. There is only one God, Mohammed is his messenger, regular US Mail.

 

Title 6 Health Annuity

 

§11 Repeal refundable premiums, cost-sharing reductions and tax credit

 

A. Congress must repeal the laws authorizing the refundable credit and cost-sharing reduction at 26USC§36B and Subchapter 4 Affordable Coverage Choices for All Americans Parts A & B 42USC§18071-§18084, except Streamlining of procedures for enrollment through an exchange and state Medicaid, CHIP and health subsidy programs 42USC§18083.

 

1. Employer responsibilities have been repealed. There shall be no penalty or fine imposed upon any individual or health insurance issuer for choosing not to participate in any federal health insurance program under 42USC§18115.

 

2. The Draft Articles of State responsibility for internationally wrongful acts of 2001 indicate that State fears about cutting ACA beneficiaries must be allayed by a 10% profit margin guarantee for participating corporations, for the period that they participated. Most states would agree that ACA corporations need to be punished for the neoplastic spending growth in the Treasury budget from the date of the extortionate premium increase in the beginning of CY 16.

 

3. The Treasury Fiscal Year budget mandatory spending for refundable premium and cost-sharing reductions shall be abolished by deleting the entire mandatory spending row and holding health insurance companies liable for the repayment of all the subsidies they received since 2016 as could be accounted in the three-year projections of the fiscal year 18 budget. These companies owe the United States Treasury every penny of the subsidy they received. These companies also owe beneficiaries for their over-payment of 2.5% annual premium inflation since CY16 and must at the very least reduce current premiums to a rate within 2.5% annual growth from CY15.

 

§12 2.5% health annuity rule reimbursements from January 1, 2016

 

A. Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Supplemental Medical Insurance (SMI) beneficiaries, are due a refund or credit of their overpayment of 2.5% health annuity since health insurance premium inflation went out of control CY16. The amount of such excess shall be considered an overpayment under 26USC§6401. As a general rule, in the case of any overpayment, the Secretary, within the applicable period of limitations and interest, shall refund any balance to such person under 26USC§6402(a).

 

1. The inflation adjustment of the monthly SMI premium of each individual enrolled must be re-calculated from the premium price of $104.90 CY15 rounded to the nearest 5 cents. Because premium inflation is held harmless as a ratio of 2.5% health insurance premium growth to 3% COLA and there was zero COLA CY16, 0.3% COLA CY17, and 2.7% COLA planned for CY 18 for total COLA over the three-year period of 3%, therefore it is easy to calculate 2.5% growth to $107.50 CY 18. The adoption of this 2.5% health insurance premium growth rate for 3% COLA CY 18 is the only way that SMI can be held harmless under Sec. 1840 of the Social Security Act 42USC§1395s. Furthermore, the ACA and Medicare owe beneficiaries, more than the refundable premium and cost-sharing reduction Treasury spending row can afford to pay, for the premium hyper-inflation since CY15. It is only a matter of time before the Center for Medicaid Services (CMS) will abolish Medicare to finance state/federal Medicaid with the Hospital Insurance tax of the people under the Hill-Burton Act principle of treating the poor for free in exchange for subsidies.

 

§13 Medicaid Prices

 

A. To amend the word 'except' to 'including' in regards to health insurance and the scope of the Federal Insurance Office as codified at 31USC§313(d). To repeal publicly operated community health centers under 7USC§212a before neoplastic Commodity Credit Insurance Program growth totally destroys the USDA. To repeal 'Medical records and payments' from the Fair Credit Reporting Act 15USC§1681a(x)(1) so the bankruptcy court, Equifax, Experian, Trans Union, etc., would not entertain medical bills. Medical bills cause an estimated 67% of bankruptcies today, up from 8% in 1980. Inflation in duplicitous hospital bills, health insurance premiums and drug prices is out of control. Legal fees ceased to be respected by national credit bureaus in 2009. To be legal medical bills must also be disregarded. The goal should be zero medical bankruptcies. Hospital doctor and surgeon bills tend to be reasonable but are dishonored due to the duplicitous hypocrisy of the hospital bill that costs $5 a day in Japan. Medicaid prices must be used for all Fair Credit Reporting Act medical bills, repealed or not. Medicaid prices are the standard for all medical bill negotiations. Medical bills need to be reasonable or they are not paid. Sustainable subsidies are needed for health insurance, drug companies and hospitals to profit from an across the board 2.5% health annuity, including administrative and professional wages, shareholder and corporate profits, to achieve the goal of reducing national health expenditure from 17.4% to less than 10% of the GDP by 2025 or 2030 with the current national accounting errors. Negotiating points are 2.5% health annuity, last reasonable price and one bill.

 

B. Nearly 4 million children are born each year, and childbirth is the No. 1 reason for hospital admissions. Furthermore, hospital costs for women who had no maternal or obstetric risk factors to complicate childbirth ranged from less than $2,000 to nearly $12,000 in 2011. Prenatal care also costs an average of $2,500 for ten to fifteen visits. Vaginal births, on average, cost $2,600 without complications, and C-sections cost $4,500, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project. Vaginal deliveries account for about 7 in 10 childbirths, and C-sections for about 3 in 10. Vaginal delivery with complications requiring an operating room procedure has the highest average price tag of any type of birth, costing parents (and their insurance companies) an average of $6,900, nearly double the average cost per stay for all types of delivery, according to the Project.  In 2014, in California alone, the cost of an uncomplicated vaginal birth varied widely — from $3,296 to $37,227 depending on the hospital. Cesarean sections ranged from $8,312 to almost $71,000.Most uncomplicated vaginal deliveries are costing $10,000 these days. The United States needs to set reasonable prices for hospital deliveries that hospitals and all attending obstetricians and midwives cannot exceed combined. A large reason for the high number of poor children takes into consideration the high cost of the hospital delivery bill. 2.5% annual inflation from 2011 prices of $2,600 without complications, $4,500 c-section, $6,900 complicated comes to $2,990 without complications, $5,175 c-section and $7,935 vaginal with complications, after six years in 2017. The Medicaid price for an uncomplicated vaginal birth in Texas is $475.

 

C. Drug prices must be regulated along similar lines of 2.5% annual growth from the last reasonable price under penalty of disgorgement of excessive executive and shareholder profits for delay. In some people, particularly children, allergies to common foods, penicillin or insect stings can be fatal without a timely injection of epinephrine. In 2009 an EpiPen was $100 dollars; in May 2016 it was reported to have increased it to almost $600 dollars, a 400 to 500 percent raise. Customers can purchase a two-pack of EpiPens online for about $145 dollars whereas the competition recognizes the patent is expired. $1 hydrocortisone creme is an unproven substitute for people with severe allergic reactions.

 

1. In 2001 insulin had the wholesale price of $45, by 2015 the cost had skyrocketed to $1,447 for the same monthly supply. One online price is $85 a vial. $50 for a month supply of insulin sounds durable. The US insulin producer Eli Lilly & Co. must cease producing and profiting from any and all psychiatric drugs, in particular Zyprexa (olanzapine) because it causes diabetes and death in diabetics when mixed with alcohol and injected. Death rates for juvenile onset insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) continue to be 50% within 20 years of diagnosis. Adulterated insulin is hypothesized to be the leading cause of death amongst Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM), juvenile onset diabetes, patients.

 

Title 7 Rights

 

§14 Torture Compensation

 

a. To amend Torture 18USC§2340A(a) 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.

 

b. To amend Exclusive Remedies 18USC§2340B so ‘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’.

 

c. United Nations Compensation Commission rates:

 

1. People forced to relocate as the result of military action $2,500 -$4,000 for an individual and $5,000-$8,000 for a family;

2. People who suffered serious bodily injury or families reporting a death as the result of military action are entitled to between $2,500 and $10,000;

3. After being swiftly compensated for relocation, injury or death an individual may make a claim for damages for personal injury; mental pain and anguish of a wrongful death; loss of personal property; loss of bank accounts, stocks and other securities; loss of income; loss of real property; and individual business losses valued up to $100,000.

4. After receiving compensation for relocation, injury or death an individual can file a claim valued at more than $100,000 for the loss of real property or personal business.

5. Claims of corporations, other private legal entities and public sector enterprises. They include claims for: construction or other contract losses; losses from the non-payment for goods or services; losses relating to the destruction or seizure of business assets; loss of profits; and oil sector or heavy industry losses.

6. Claims filed by Governments and international organizations for losses incurred in evacuating citizens; providing relief to citizens; damage to diplomatic premises and loss of, and damage to, other government property; and damage to the environment.

 

§15 Deprivation of Relief Benefits

 

1. Deprivation of relief benefits 18USC§246 states 'Whoever directly or indirectly deprives, attempts to deprive, or threatens to deprive any person of any employment, position, work, compensation, or other benefit provided for or made possible in whole or in part by any Act of Congress appropriating funds for work relief or relief purposes, on account of political affiliation, race, color, sex, religion, or national origin, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than one year, or both'.

 

a. Common Article 1 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights provide (1) All peoples have the right of self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development. (2) All peoples may, for their own ends, freely dispose of their natural wealth and resources without prejudice to any obligations arising out of international economic co-operation, based upon the principle of mutual benefit, and international law. In no case may a people be deprived of its own means of subsistence.

 

§16 Regular Price Travel and Identification Documents

 

A. A refugee is someone who is unable or unwilling to return to their country of origin owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion. A stateless person is someone who is not considered as a national by any state under the operation of its law. The term stateless person describes the rapidly growing population of United States citizens born and naturalized in the United States and nationals at some stage in the naturalization process, who have been denied identification documents due to impossible bureaucratic red tape to elicit extortionate fees to replace documents lost, stolen or mutilated. The epidemiological paradox is that Hispanics, with a large undocumented population, live longer and are healthier although poorer, than other people in the United States.

 

1. More than 4 million social security cards have been issued to newborns during Republican administrations and less than 4 million births have been recorded during Democratic administration since 1989. Everyone born in the United States of foreign parents is entitled to be naturalized a US citizenship at birth under the Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness (1961) and the equal protection section one of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Nonetheless, since 1990 during Democratic administrations the Social Security Administration reports less than 4 million and during Republican administrations more than 4 million births.

 

2. Common Article 28 requires States to issue to refugees and stateless persons lawfully staying in their territory travel documents for the purpose of travel outside their territory, unless compelling reasons of national security or public order otherwise require. Common Article 29 ensures 1. States shall not impose upon refugees or stateless persons duties, charges or taxes, of any description whatsoever, other or higher than those which are or may be levied on their nationals in similar situations. 2. Nothing in the above paragraph shall prevent the application to stateless persons of the laws and regulations concerning charges in respect of the issue to aliens of administrative documents including identity papers.

 

B. Citizens born and naturalized in the United States have a right to purchase United States passports at normal price. The United States is liable to refund individuals for thousands of dollars of bribes they were forced to make since 2010 for fake 'original' naturalization papers, artificially needed for foreign born and naturalized citizens to purchase a passport, as the result of the unconstestable battery of false authentication features, in violation of 18USC§1028. The disclaimer on the free copies of naturalization papers provided by US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) should be removed. Stateless citizens must be sold identification and travel documents at normal price under Common Article 29 of the Conventions Relating to the Status of Refugees and Stateless Persons of 1951 and 1954 respectively.

 

1. Immigrant visas are issued under 8USC(12)§1153. Work visas are issued under 8USC(12)(II)(III)§1202 through a withholding of income tax on the wages of nonresident aliens under 26USC(A)(3)(A)§1441. The prices however have to be fair. The Canadian refugee agency argues for a $500 fee. The Constitution prices travel documents at $10 in Art. 1 Sec. 8 that would be fair to issuing temporary travel documents, even to stateless undocumented people on the basis of a bilateral international fingerprint check.

 

Title 8 Lefts

 

§17 Computer Science

 

1. Stalking under 18USCS§2261 and Unauthorized Access to Stored Information (hacking) under 18USC§2701 are common computer crimes.

 

2. Cell phones are vulnerable to geolocation to within 10 meters by global positioning system (GPS). Taking the battery out of the cell phone is the only way to be sure the phone is not being tracked by GPS. Never use the Internet or cell phone or charge a cell phone, within miles of where one sleeps. Free government cell phones serve as compensation. Lifeline Assistance is a program of the FCC that helps over 10 million Americans afford a phone. The cell phone companies receive $9.95 for each subscriber (higher for Tribal) in order to provide the cell phone and service free to the subscriber. Lifeline began under the Reagan administration to help low-income Americans afford their landline phone service, and was updated during the Bush administration to include mobile phones. Lifeline was nicknamed Obamaphone since the popularity of the program exploded under the Obama Administration. Obamaphones are available from companies in 49 states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. U.S. citizenship is not a requirement to receive an Obamaphone. Only one Lifeline phone per household is allowed. The largest company, Safelink Wireless, has 3.6 million customers, and is owned by Tracfone, a company owned by the richest man in the world, Mexico’s Carlos Slim. Most companies offer 250 to 350 minutes of talk and text a month. However, because Trump 'no tiene el dinero construir un pared' minutes have been reduced to around 100 every three months. 200 minutes a month is fine.

 

3. Social media and news blogs are compromised by membership agreements. Cisco and other pop-up logon screen wifi routers used at universities, so prone to biological experimentation, and cell phones, are known to be vulnerable to geolocation to within 30 meters and stalking by global positioning system (GPS). It is not possible to block university grade log-on wifi, market price or serious bug by simply turning off the wifi on an Apple computer or using Airplane mode on a Windows computer. Satellite Internet is compromised by the monthly limits, downloaders must be turned off and guests are highly discouraged by stalking, bugs and the owners limited rights. Turning the wifi off makes it possible to work on a computer without Internet connectivity in the vicinity of, for-instance, fast food Cisco router, without being hacked. Congress might prefer a Starbuck's encrypted pop-up log in wifi.

 

4. Mac computers are necessary for non-fiction work in the United States, without doing advanced research in computer hardware. Mac computers are estimated to last five years by computer consultants.

 

5. Open source software is good enough for word processing and publishing .doc files that are destroyed by Microsoft Word that is necessary to publish .htm documents and add accounting table columns. A common problem accountants face is that, once a number has been computed on a Microsoft Word scratch-sheet, it cannot be copied and recomputed, the digits must be entered manually for the table to compute correctly.

 

6. To keep the email addresses of correspondents secret, list them, between commas, in the cc or bcc field in parenthesis cc: (email, list). Make state email public and keep private emails private. Disable Java script to prevent appearance of the email pop-up compose screen or use basic gmail.

 

7. The FBI must forfeit their computer piracy equipment and bugs for destruction. The FBI is reported to be unable to break into encrypted Internet connections. The National Security Administration (NSA) has pled guilty to a number of acts of invasions of privacy and computer piracy under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) against international emails and cell phones, including violent stalking of domestic and foreign nationals and wiretapping of foreign heads of state, and the industrial Stuxnet worm against a nuclear reactor and civilian infrastructure in Iran.

 

§18 Force Reduction

 

A. The United States has the highest rate of incarceration in the world. To continue progress made by the 114th Congress releasing non-violent offenders the United States must make it clear that there will be No arbitrary arrest, detention or exile under Art. 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To define and punish piracy under Art. 1 Sec. 8 Clause 10 of the United States Constitution a force reduction by expiration of commission is needed to abolish the institutionalized enforcement of prohibition, once and for all, under Art. 2 Sec. 3 of the US Constitution, with $12.9 billion justice department spending reduction + $6 billion state department conversion to international assistance = $18.9 billion settlement under the Slavery Convention of 1926 and Supplementary Convention on the Abolition of Slavery, the Slave Trade, and Institutions and Practices Similar to Slavery (1956).

 

1. Congress must repeal the Authority for Employment of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Senior Executive Service under 5USC§3151-3152. Furthermore the clause, 'or to a member of the Senior Executive Service or the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Drug Enforcement Administration Senior Executive Service' must be repealed from the end of 5USC§5301(b) FY 2017. These terrorist organizations must be abolished to prevent them from continuing to intimidate and coerce the civilian population and affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping under 18USC§2331. Funding for these agencies, who perpetuated several drug wars in the White House and abroad constitutes Treason under 18USC§2381 and Provision of Material Support for Terrorists under 18USC§2339A(a) for Possession of firearms and dangerous weapons in Federal facilities §930(c), Hostage taking §1203, Government property or contracts §1361, and Communication lines , stations, systems §1362.

 

2. Expiration of commissions: the Judiciary US Sentencing Commission, Justice Department FBI, DEA, (ATF), OJP Community Policing, State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance, US Marshall's Drug and Crime Task Force, and White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) need to be abolished because their expansive enforcement constitutes 'forced labor' under the Slavery Convention of 1926 that is a levy for war to law enforcement officers under Art. 3(3) of the US Constitution that is easily ruled unnecessary to the Paperwork Reduction Act under 44USC§3508. The US Marshall is the only federal law enforcement officer employed by the Attorney General. State Department funding for International Narcotic Control and Law Enforcement, International Military Education and Training, Foreign Military Finance, and War Crime Tribunal funding, including the residuals, constitute Provision of Material Support for Terrorism under 18USC§2339A(a) for a Conspiracy to kill, kidnap, maim or injure persons or damage property in a foreign country under 18USC§956. This money should be converted to official development assistance of the United Nations.

 

3. The Judiciary Court of International Trade of the United States (COITUS) needs to change its name to Customs Court (CC). Congress needs to amend Title 22 Foreign Relations and Intercourse (a-FRaI-d) to be Foreign Relations (FR-ee). The Justice Department Bureau for Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) needs to change its name to Bureau for Firearms and Explosives (FE) and legislate a share of the federal tax revenues generated by sales of firearms and ammunition and fees for criminal background checks and possible new tax on explosives in 27 CFR Part 2. The Treasury needs to change the name of the Alcohol, Tobacco, Tax and Trade Bureau (ATTTB) to Alcohol, Tobacco and Marijuana (ATM) pursuant to the legalization of marijuana and 27 CFR Part 1 under the Supplementary Convention on the Abolition of Slavery, the Slave Trade, and Institutions and Practices Similar to Slavery (1956).

 

a. Furthermore, it is necessary to amend Title 22 Foreign Relations and Intercourse (a-FRaI-d) to be Foreign Relations (FR-ee), repeal the word 'enforcement' from federal education statute for offending the 'forced labor' abolished by the Slavery Convention of 1926 in at least two places (1) 'enforcement of Section 111' at 20USC§112 needs to be repealed under the 21st Amendment and, (2) the words 'enforcement of' must be removed from the caption of Part 1200 of Title 34 of the Code of Federal Regulations 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 (ii) 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). To provide single parents with more secure state settlement option 'Enforcement' also needs to be repealed from 'Child Support' in Title IV-D of the Social Security Act 42USC§666 et seq.

 

§19 Alcohol, Tobacco and Marijuana Bureau

 

1. The Treasury needs to change the name of the Alcohol, Tobacco, Tax and Trade Bureau (ATTTB or TTB) to Alcohol, Tobacco and Marijuana (ATM) to remind everyone to pay in cash for alcohol, tobacco and the legalization of marijuana under the Supplementary Convention on the Abolition of Slavery, the Slave Trade, and Institutions and Practices Similar to Slavery (1956), Chapter I of Title 27 of the Code of Federal Regulations and Subtitle E Chapters 51 and 52 of Title 26 of the United States Code. The Department of Health and Human Services Food (HHS) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) may be abolished, CHIPRA 2009 and Tobacco Control Act repealed. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) is a bureau under the Department of the Treasury. TTB employs some 470 people across the country, including the Headquarters Offices in Washington, D.C., and the National Revenue Center in Cincinnati, Ohio (incarceration rate higher than 1,000 detainees per 100,000 residents and 50% of Ohio's death row population with only 4% of the population). The headquarters need to be relocated to a recreational marijuana state, that poses less risk of use of the interstate commercial facility in the commission of murder for hire 18USC§1958. There is no reason that the ATM must federally tax marijuana at its inception. Nor is there any salvation for Cincinnati, Ohio as the ATM headquarters. The ATM acronym is intended to remind even the most deranged addict to pay for alcohol, tobacco and marijuana in cash. Alcohol and tobacco sales and state regulators need to demonstrate better privacy protection so that TTB will not invade the privacy of consumers so unwise as to pay for alcohol, tobacco with a debit or credit card other than cash under 42USC§2000aa.

 

2. Although the tax on small cigars seems to have been worked out by counting each small cigarette and small cigar as one five cent tax unit, in a pack of 20. The roll-your-own tobacco tax rate needs to be reduced from $24.78 to $1.0969 per pound, the pre-CHIPRA rate. As the result of this tax roll-your-own consumers shifted to rolling pipe tobacco. Organic certification came and went and is currently not available except by American Spirit. The 2015 pipe tobacco harvest was adulterated with green tomatoes ostensibly thrown by FDA anti-smoking campaign teenagers and then throat infections incidental to the fines of the FDA inspectors. To give roll-your-own tobacco the equal protection of the clause 26USC§6423(c) taxpayers must somehow be reimbursed to the full extent of their loss. Loss can be estimated, first by reverting back to the old rate for a lengthy number of years, and second by letting tobacco products to go tax free if they are certified organic. Calculating the full extent of loss by dividing the excessive tax hike on hand-rolling tobacco by the 158 percent and multiplying by the years the excessive rate was in effect, $1.0969 for 13.5 years a year, 108 years from FY 2017 for roll-your own under 27CFR§40.25a.

 

3. Twenty-six states and the District of Columbia currently have laws legalizing marijuana in some form. Three other states will soon join them after recently passing measures permitting use of medical marijuana. Seven states and the District of Columbia have adopted more expansive laws legalizing marijuana for recreational use. Most recently, California, Massachusetts and Nevada all passed measures in November legalizing recreational marijuana. State tax revenues generated by a +/- 25% tax on the sale of recreational marijuana have exceeded expectations and in 2016 the state of Colorado, Washington and Oregon earned more than a billion dollars in tax revenues. Sales taxes earned by the legalization of marijuana interest the federal Treasury to create an ATM Bureau.

 

Title 9 State of the Union

 

§20 Priorities

 

1. The modern Democratic-Republican (DR) two party system evolved in six distinct party systems in American political history, Jeffersonian Democratic-Republican, Jacksonian Democrats, Progressive Republican Era, Republican Populist, New Deal Democrats and the modern age of split ticket voting whereupon “informed” voters divide their vote so that the President’s party does not also hold a majority in Congress. The significance of not having a split ticket seems to take its toll on informed voters. After restoring the Historical Tables but not the current Excel Tables, the prime example of this information shortfall is that the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2017 HR 244 is not available online, nor is it believed to be accurate, but it will prevent any further government shut-downs until December 9. Without a split ticket, or a popular Presidential Cabinet, the Monroe Doctrine lies with the Application of the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism and of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (Ukraine v. Russian Federation) No. 2017/11 9 March 2017. In equity, Puerto Rican statehood accounts for the end of the law of the 114th Congress and National Park Service under 54USC§100101 et seq. Accept no defective products, unemployment compensation (UC) must pay up to 3% annual spending growth for the Secretary of Labor to afford to pay women who go into “labor” 14 weeks Maternity Protection under ILO Convention 183 (2000). For the 115th Congress to make law, without a split ticket, the only opportunity, besides the legal child support payments of the 'Labor Act', is for the informed voters of the United States to buy the FY 18 budget surplus and seventh Hospitals & Asylums (HA) stage of DR two party system political development, the White House OMB Director set afire, with a unanimous roll-call vote to tax the rich to end-poverty by 2020.

 

2. The Defense is troubled by the “pre-decisional” levy for war from $582 billion to $606 billion FY 17 and then to $639 billion FY 18. Because the FY 17 budget total growth is anemic and the FY 18 on steroids, the compromise is to stabilize Defense spending at 2.5% annual growth from $580 billion FY16 to $595 billion FY 17 to $609 billion FY 18 so end-strength might grow at 0.9% annually from 2,882,000 FY 16 to 2,907,938 FY 17 to 2,934,109 FY 18 and enjoy the 1.6% basic pay raise FY17 and thereafter in peace. Art. 3 Section 3 of the US Constitution defines treason against the United States, shall consist only of levying War against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort under 18USC§2381. Presidential treason must be impeached on the rational basis of the principle of non-use of force, jus cogens, universal norm of international law under Arts. 2(4) of the US Constitution and UN Charter. The slash and burn OMB Director has enabled the President and Secretaries of Defense and Homeland Security to falsely associate their levy for “total war” with theft and bribery of government programs under 18USC§666, a conspiracy to kill, kidnap, maim or injure persons or damage property in a foreign country under 18USC§956 and arson within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction under 18USC§81, crimes of provision of material support for terrorism under 18USC§2339A, harbor and concealment of terrorists under 18USC§2339C, treason under 18USC§2381 and theft and bribery of government programs under18USC§666. The Comptroller, who produces the budgets of the Department of Defense, must in the introductory table (1) add Air Force, Army and Navy spending to calculate total military department spending, and (2) subtract total agency spending from total defense-wide federal outlays against “total war” to solve agency “undistributed offsetting receipts” under 31USC§101. Total FY 17 spending reported by the three military departments - Air Force $168.9 billion, Army $148 billion and the Navy and Marine Corp $164.9 billion = $477.4 billion military spending - $583.3 billion in federal revenues FY17 = $106 billion, of $150 billion total, on-budget undistributed offsetting receipts that OMB uses to recover unspent funds at year end, 70.7% from the Defense. Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, complied with the Nuclear-Non-Proliferation Treaty, reduced military spending FY2013-15 and most of all there were years of peacetime when there was not a single fatality in the 2.8 million volunteers.

 

3. In all three Military Departments - Air Force, Army and Navy - auditors found three common deficiencies, including: inability to completely account for every business transaction and accurately record each transaction’s impact on financial statements; second, an ineffective IT control environment, which not only impedes accurate data flow but cannot guarantee that systems are secure and free from improper access; and lack of a robust audit response capability which are essential in providing auditors’ promptly with large volumes of documentation. The Military Departments must continue to address shortcomings in these three areas and quickly improve their respective performance. Justice defines, a deficiency in internal control exists when the design or operation of a control does not allow management or employees, in the normal course of performing their assigned functions, to prevent, or detect and correct, misstatements on a timely basis. A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the entity’s financial statements will not be prevented, or detected and corrected on a timely basis. A common problem accountants face is that, once a number has been computed on a Microsoft Word scratch-sheet, it cannot be copied and recomputed, the digits must be entered manually for the table to compute correctly.

 

§21 Graduation of Human Services

 

A. It has long been held (1) Customs needs to graduate from the Homeland Security Act of 2002, (2) Public Health Department (PHD) needs to graduate from the Education Reorganization Act of 1978, and (3) the Military Department (MD) from the Secretary of Defense Reorganization Act of 1949 now, (4) to prevent true federal public health outlays from exceeding $1 trillion FY 18 it is necessary to create an independent Cabinet-level Department of Human Services (HS). It is time for HS to graduate from the Public Health Department (PHD). HS FY 18 budget details 2.5% growth in outlays for administration, 3% growth for social work and child care and 4% growth in cash benefits. Although traditionally considered welfare, due 3% annual inflation, all health categories, especially insurance premiums, must not exceed 2.5% annual inflation until national health expenditures (NHE), boasted to be as high as 18% of GDP, are less than 10% of GDP. NHE is estimated to be about 15% of GDP. Medicaid spending needs to be re-estimated at 2.5% growth from 2014 when a 15.3% increase in enrollment led to a 15.9% decline in health care workforce. Other accounting errors are attributed to double jeopardy in regards to computing already computed numbers and wildly high estimates on private health insurance spending. To be free the Postal Service must be refunded the Retiree Health Benefit fund since 2006. The Treasury must be refunded premiums and cost-sharing reduction payments, in excess of 10% health insurance corporation profits, since the extortionate premium increase of 2016. Congress must repeal the laws authorizing the refundable credit and cost-sharing reduction at 26USC§36B and Subchapter 4 Affordable Coverage Choices for All Americans Parts A & B 42USC§18071-18084 with the exception of Streamlining of procedures for enrollment through an exchange and state medicaid, CHIP and health subsidy programs 42USC§18083. ACA and SMI beneficiaries, or former beneficiaries who paid, are due a refund or credit of their overpayment of 2.5% health annuity under 26USC§6401.

 

B. Human (HS) Services was coined as part of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) in the Education Reorganization Act of 1978. Human services degrees are, in order of political competence - social work, child development, psychology, addiction studies and mental health. Finance for federal and state human services employees, benefit and grant programs are accounted for by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Administration for Community Living (ACL) and Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). ACF is the second largest agency in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Total federal spending on Human Services programs is estimated to be $59 billion FY 16, $64 FY 17 and $69 billion FY 18 by CY 17.  To keep true federal public health spending less than $1 trillion FY 18 it is necessary for Congress and the President to create an independent Cabinet-level Department of Human Services (DHS) in the Cabinet that will be accounted for by the White House Office of Management and Budget (WHOMB) by adding total Independent Agency on-budget spending of zero dollars to and renaming Other Independent Agencies (on-budget) to Human Services and abolishing off-budget Independent Agencies flirting with OPM, Unemployment and Social Security. It is time for HS to graduate from the Public Health Department (PHD) to prevent true federal health spending from exceeding $1 trillions FY 18. The rule of law must account for 2.5% government health insurance growth from 2014 when the 15.3% Medicaid enrollment growth was incidental to 15.7% decline in employment by the health care sector until national health expenditure is less than 10% of GDP when health spending could be allowed to grow at the 3% rate of in-kind-welfare, like education and social work. Social work is due 3% growth. Cash welfare programs for the poor normally need 4% growth to afford 3% benefit growth to compete with 2.7% average annual inflation and 1% beneficiary population growth, that is dependent upon legitimate demand. The national poverty rate is 15.4% but 16-24 million children, 22%-33%, are growing up poor, otherwise poverty in the United States runs about 10% for working age adults and 9% for elderly, excluding medical bills that drive up the poverty rate to 15.9%. The reason for the extraordinarily high rates of child poverty are that Congress has not authorized an automatic annual 3% raise in minimum wage, or paid for maternity leave, and cut 10 million Temporary Assistance for Needy Family (TANF) benefits 1996-2000. Until child poverty is ended by taxing the rich, the failure of the United States to pay legal child support obligations under 18USC§228 constitutes deprivation of relief benefits under 18USC§246.

 

1. The Administration for Children and Families, the ACF administers more than 60 human services programs. ACF spending increased 18% from $53 billion to more than $63 billion FY17. 15.9% growth in TANF spending from $17.3 billion FY 16 to $20.1 billion FY 17 must be sustained at 4% growth to $20.9 billion FY 18 rather than reduced to $17.3 billion FY 17 by the $17.3 billion misinformation contained in the Annualized Continuing Resolution FY 17 to $15.1 billion FY 18. ACF FY 17 spending growth is the only federal agency with high levels of growth that must be sustained, albeit at normal rates FY 18. In regards to the ACF, the Annualized Continuing Resolution FY 17 and Presidential budget “cuts” are overruled for the most part. ACF has the burden of proving Full Time Employment (FTEs) and the accurate administration of TANF benefits equally to all poor children growing up in the U.S. Republicans must not levy war by robbing children but require statistical proof of FTE and TANF benefit administration growth until child poverty is conclusively brought to an end. In 1998 there were a total of 56,268 FTEs nation-wide, 35,452 employed by state and local IV-D agencies, and 20,816 federally. The Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEP) can be abolished whereas it is reported to have expired in 2007 and is so toxic only Democrats can tolerate the unprofessional health and human services intervention into confidential electrical engineering toleration of terrorist Republican destruction of an energy facility under 18USC§1366. Congress should create a mandatory welfare program in the Department of Energy whereby energy corporations would contribute a affordable percentage of their utility receipts into a fund for low income people, along more local lines than the free government cell phone, that needs to re-up to at least 200 minutes a month. The reduction in spending for child refugees seems justified in promise of reduced referrals. Otherwise all spending for child welfare programs and research should increase at exactly 2.5% FY17- FY18 as if the Republican Annualized Continuing Resolution FY 17 and invasive mandatory Health Professional Opportunity Grant that must abolished FY17, had not attempted to abolish the “mandatory” Social Services Block Grant FY 18. Psychiatric drug abuse by foster care is such a harm to themselves and others that the entire spending category of adoption and foster care needs to be institutionalized in the currently federally unfunded non-profit “orphanages” raising an estimated 100,000 orphans due SSI benefits because their parents died or abandoned them by final legal decision before the age of 18.

 

2. The Administration for Community Living (ACL) administers programs under several authorizing statutes. The Older Americans Act was enacted in 1965 and is administered by the Administration on Aging. In addition, ACL is also responsible for administering other authorizing statutes relevant to older Americans and individuals with disabilities. Section 398 of the Public Health Service Act. The ACL must change the name of the National Institute of Disability, Independent Living and Research (NIDLR) to Disability Research (DR) in the budget and agency website, after at least three counts of murder of an elderly family member and later two police officers, by the NIDLR, in Palm Springs FY 16 alone under 18USC§1111, the nicely codified authorizing statute has been repealed and NIDLR re-appointed although it technically needs to be abolished under the Slavery Convention of 1926. The ACL must change the name of the spending row, website and agency to Disability Research (DR). The FY 2018 Budget request is $2 billion for ACL, exactly the same, as before the ACL was created with drastic cuts to the Agency on Aging in 2013 from whence the budget recovered until there were further cuts in 2016 and spending continues to decline slightly and because it declares itself to be an administration, rather than a welfare agency, would benefit from 2.5% annual growth.

 

3. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) was established by an act of Congress in 1992 under Public Law 102-321 that abolished the Alcohol, Drug Abuse, Mental Health Service Administration (ADAMHA) that was itself established May 4, 1974 when President Nixon signed P.L. 93-282. The Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 President's Budget provides $3.9 billion for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), a reduction of $399 million below the FY 2017 Continuing Resolution. The 14% spending increase from $3.6 billion FY 16 to $4.1 billion FY 17 did not significantly abate the opiate overdose epidemic and 1.8% average annual growth is fair FY 18. Thereafter, SAMHSA should stabilize at 2.5% annual growth because it calls itself an administration, neither welfare, nor health that might cure the pain.

 

C. Do not take advantage of a widow or an orphan (Old Testament, Exodus 22:22). Leave your orphans; I will protect their lives. Your widows too can trust in me (Old Testament, Jeremiah 49:11). Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world (New Testament, James 1:27). And they feed, for the love of God, the indigent, the orphan, and the captive (The Human: 8). Therefore, treat not the orphan with harshness (The Quran, The Morning Hours: 9). Be good to orphans and the very poor. And speak good words to people (The Quran, The Heifer: 83). Give orphans their property, and do not substitute bad things for good. Do not assimilate their property into your own. Doing that is a serious crime (The Quran, The Women: 2).

 

Title 10 White House Office of Management and Budget

 

§22 To WHOMB

 

A. The dead-beat President has not submitted budget contents to Congress in the first week of January or February under 31USC§1105. Annualized Continuing Resolution for Fiscal Year 17 (CR17) directs agencies to submit their FY 18 congressional budget justifications by July 16 under 31USC§1106. Abusive budget cuts of statutory programs are not governed by same laws as corporate downsizing, that would also be criminally compromised by the budget director's addition deficit disordered justification; budget cuts are due criminal process for attrition, negative, zero or unsatisfactory benefit growth lost to 2.7% inflation, on the rational basis of deprivation of relief benefits under 18USC§246. The robbery of civilian government to pay for the military constitutes advocacy of the overthrow of the government by force under 18USC§2385 and treason under 18USC§2381. Arson within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction under 18USC§81 constitutes harbor and concealment of terrorists under 18USC§2339C. As anticipated there is barely enough time to update this act and budget table in time for the summer solstice; the codification of the budget should be done by July 16.

 

1. The primary finding is that to reduce the current fiscal year deficit and historical deficit and debt OMB must abolish the Allowances, Independent Agencies, Other Defense Civil Programs, Undistributed Offsetting Receipts off-budget rows because they are not agencies instrumental to calculating Outlays by Agency under 31USC§101. These rows are duplicitous, unnecessary, coerce the total overthrow of the federal budget and need to be abolished by the Paperwork Reduction Act under 44USC§3508. Although there is reason to believe that the debt relief from deleting Other Defense Civil Programs only goes back to 2009, the historical restoration needed to sustain such an argument is offensive, and Other Independent Agencies is certainly a historical zero sum, so in the future publications of the Historical Tables, these row shall be deleted to calculate accurate historical federal Total Outlays.

 

B. To calculate the total on-budget outlays WHOMB Outlays by Agency Historical Table 4.1 must make exact note of the federal outlays estimated by every agency in the annual congressional budget requests by the heads of the executive departments under Article 2 Section 2 of the United States Constitution that overrules any professional opinions regarding agency spending OMB might have. A human rights case is needed for WHOMB to dispute agency federal spending estimates made in their annual congressional budget requests. (1) Agency budget proposals must be consistent with system-wide priorities for maintaining and improving the quality of federal statistics maintained by WHOMB under the Paperwork Reduction Act as codified at 44USC§3504(e)(2). (2) OMB must disregard off-budget undistributed offsetting receipts and take exact note of the off-budget total social security revenues and expenditures reported in the Annual Report of the Federal Old Age Survivor Insurance Trust Fund and Federal Disability Insurance Trust fund in the off-budget to calculate total Revenues, Outlays, Surplus (or Deficit) in Table 1.1. 3. Agency budget offices must be solicited for their year by year opinions regarding the historical accuracy of the Historical Tables to express federal outlays made by their agencies. After all the agencies have reported their final opinions and WHOMB has preserved the old record for posterity, reduce the historical deficit and debt by being mathematically accurate.

 

C. There was reported to be a significant increase in on-budget Other Independent Agency outlays from $9.1 billion FY 14 to $15.9 billion FY 16, to $22.1 billion FY 17 and $22.3 billion FY 18, 48% average annual growth since FY15. Other Independent agencies are poorly accounted for by OMB and must be reviewed by the newly created Department of Human Services (HS) as a list of allegedly orphaned Independent Agency programs for adoption who actually ran away from their parent Cabinet administration. There are more than 161 programs Other Independent Agency net outlays listed. The vast majority the entries are obviously duplicates of, or make reference to lawful Cabinet agency spending already accounted for in annual agency congressional budget justifications. In 2009 OMB made a similar declaration pertaining to Other Defense Civil Programs row that is no longer available online and needs to be repealed to reduce the deficit, hopefully since 2009 when the payments appear to have ceased to be justified by an equivalent value of undistributed offsetting receipts. Continuing Resolution (CR17) was used to press OMBs more than 200 employees to show what donuts and coffee can do in eight hours. OMB does not provide a balance sheet for independent agencies and the Director does not exhibit the ability to produce an accurate ledge of Cabinet outlays. What OMB did is hold every agency on the CR17 list who did not appear in their hopper, or provide adequate financial information, often federal revenues or general fund offsetting receipts, to the public, in contempt. The legality of this approach is open to allegation of deprivation of relief benefits under 18USC§246, coercion, forced labor and complete historical abolition of the entire billion dollar amounts listed in both the on and off-budget Independent Agency rows of OMB Historical Table 4 to reduce total spending and deficit in Table 1. Budget cuts – Note - A full-year 2017 appropriation for this account was not enacted at the time the budget was prepared; therefore, the budget assumes this account is operating under the Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2017 (P.L. 114–254). The amounts included for 2017 reflect the annualized level provided by the continuing resolution for fiscal year 2017 (CR17).  Agencies have until July 16 to submit supplemental requests for the new fiscal year October 1. Agencies who were subjected to arbitrary spending cuts are challenged to defend their budgets by making their annual congressional budget justification. Are there truly any independent agencies who would be orphaned by the abolition of on and off-budget Other Independent Agency rows, whose budgets should be adopted by the Human Services (HS) fiscal year budget and OMB Outlay by Agency spending row? No. $0 Independent Agency outlays in the new Department of Human Services row in Historical Table 4 Outlay by Agency. Zero Allowances, Other Defense Civil Programs, Other Independent Agencies, or Undistributed Offsetting Receipts off-budget.  There is only one God. Mohammed is his Messenger. Certified US Mail – Zero.
