Social Security Amendments of January 1, 2017 HA-1-1-17

 

To end poverty by 2020

 

Be it enacted in the House and Senate assembled

 

Title 1 Summer Solstice Instructions

 

Section 1 Annual reports

 

To amend Annual Reports Sec. 1161 of Title 11 of the Social Security Act 42USC(7)XI-BĪ1320c-10 to change the due date from April 1 to summer solstice (June 20-21). There is a July 16 deadline for congressional budget submissions for the new fiscal year beginning October 1 under 31USCĪ1106.

 

Section 2 Two Year Term and Maximum Benefits for Commissioner

 

1. To amend the term of Commissioner from 6 to 2 years under Sec. 702(a)(3) of the Social Security Act 42USC(7)VIIĪ902. To append 'and/or maximum allowable disability and retirement for life' at the end of (a)(2).

 

a. The 2017 Social Security Changes Fact Sheet, that will hopefully be updated to reflect a 3% COLA (2017) states the maximum benefit for a worker retiring at full retirement age grew 1.8% from $2,639 mo. (2016) to $2,687 mo. (2017). Inflation in maximum benefit (2.5%) should grow slower than (3%) normal benefits so more survivors receive the maximum benefit.

 

Section 3 $700 mo. after 42 months of $600-699 (Revelation 13:10)

 

1. To pay social security beneficiaries $700 a month after 42 months of receiving between $600 and $699 a month (Revelation 13:10). In 2000 secular humanists, who believe the government to be God, attached a lot of significance to the number of the beast in conjunction with Y2K. The Social Security Amendments of 2000 created CMS and gave the Commissioner a six year term, although in nature two years was the average time served by Commissioners and two years is the reasonable term set forth in this Act. The obsession with the senatorial number 6 from the 2000 amendments to the Social Security Act entered number of the beast status with the $66.60 Medicare premium in 2004. The majority of SSI, mentally ill and retarded disability beneficiary's pay entered conflict around 2006 and 42 months thereafter marks the Great Recession. There was no COLA between 2009 and 2011 and SSI benefits stalled out at $674 a month for three years. Social security calculators of the mentally ill and retarded remain seized by the number of the beast but most would probably be redressed with a 3% COLA (2017) and spiritually healed when the federal payment standard for SSI benefits reaches $777 (2018).

 

2. As much as $500 million back-payment is due as many 50,000 faultless beneficiaries, but many do survive, including Social Security Act Title I State Old Age Insurance Programs, whose benefits were cut from a reasonable rate to $600-$699 pursuant to the Social Security Caucus of 2011 and any other unjustified overpayment decisions whose perpetrating official is not immune under Sec. 204(c) of the Social Security Act 42USCĪ404(c) for deprivation or relief benefits under 18USCĪ246. No less than a 3% COLA would be enough to increase the benefits of the +/- $666 overpayment decision of 2011 to $700 for SSA to not be in contempt of Revelation 13:10 and the Social Security Caucus of 2011.

 

Title 2 Disability Insurance Reallocation Tax

 

Section 4 Disability Insurance Tax Rate

 

1. To amend the DI tax rate from 1.80% in 2015, to 2.37% in 2016, to 2.40% in 2017, to 2.20% in 2018 when the Baby Boomers shall retire. The Actuary has the peculiar disability of never having calculated the correct OASDI tax rate. 1.80% after 2018 provided by the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 is insufficient for existing benefits and must actually and legislatively be instantly corrected from 2.37% (2015-2018) to 2.4% (2017). 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 0.9% DI tax in 2015 to 1.2% DI tax for employees and employers in 2017 and 1.1% in 2018 for printing on pay-stubs under Sec. 201(b)(1)(S) of the Social Security Act 42USC(7)IIĪ401.

 

Section 5 Old Age Survivor Insurance Tax Rate

 

To amend the OASI tax rate from 10.60% in 2015, to 10.03% in 2016, to 10.00% in 2017 and 10.20% in 2018 and thereafter to prevent the DI fund from being depleted and OASI Trust Fund from premature deficit. To decrease the 5.30% OASI tax in 2015 to 5.00% in 2017, to 5.10% in 2018, for employees and employers without increasing the overall 12.4% OASDI under 26USCĪ3101 and 26USCĪ3111 (as hacked in 2016) or 15.3% OASDI and Hospital Insurance (HI) Federal Insurance Contribution Act tax-rate under 26USC(A)(2)Ī1401.

 

Title 3 Cost-of-Living Annuity

 

Section 6 Three Percent Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA)

 

To pay beneficiaries a three percent (3%) annual COLA to grow faster than average annual consumer price inflation of 2.7% under Section 215(i) of the Social Security Act 42USC(7)Ī415(i).

 

Section 7 Three percent Annual Raise in Federal Minimum Wage and Welfare Benefits

 

1. To legislate an automatic minimum wage increase of not more or less than 3% annual growth, that 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 in 2016, to $7.50 in 2017, to $7.75 an hour in 2018 and 8.00 in 2019 etc.' in one final sentence at 29USCĪ206(a)(1)(D).

 

2. Cash welfare programs, TANF, SSI, OASDI etc., should budget for a 3% COLA to stay ahead of inflation, plus, in normal years beneficiary population growth of >1%, >104% of previous years costs. Federal spending on in-kind welfare programs like food stamps and housing assistance should grow 3% annually so population growth + average benefit growth = 3%.

 

3. Education and health are often considered welfare but overspending, particularly on health care, calls for regulation. Education spending growth, that fluctuates wildly, should be stabilized from the accurate year of FY 2017 at a rate of 3%, but US education spending is the second highest in the world, and the budget has fluctuated so wildly a 2.5% rate of growth is recommended until at least 2020. Health inflation needs be reduced to 2.5% until 2030 or when national health expenditures is less than 10% of GDP.

 

4. Agency non-welfare and infrastructure spending is expected to grow around 102.5%. Raises in administrative, managerial and professional wages are estimated % raise + % new employees = 2.5%.

 

Title 4 Maternity Leave

 

Section 8 Unemployment Compensation for 14 Weeks of Maternity Leave

 

To amend Demonstration Projects to 'Maternity leave' Section 305 of the Social Security Act 42USCĪ505.

 

a. Although pregnant women can work until they go into labor the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Maternity Leave Convention No. 183 (2000) prescribes 14 weeks of paid maternity leave. To expedite the reemployment of individuals who have established a benefit year to claim unemployment compensation under State law the Secretary of Labor shall pay for 14 weeks of maternity leave.

 

1. Childbirth is the most impoverishing part of household size adjusted poverty line for families. Child poverty is higher in the United States than any other industrialized nation. Child poverty has been growing since 10 million family benefits were cut 1996-2000.

 

2. Employers shall provide at least 3 weeks of paid (sick) 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 benefits from the use of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) grants under Sec. 404 of Title IV-A of the Social Security Act 42USCĪ604 and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Program for the Aged, Blind and Disabled under Sec. 1611 of Title XVI of the Social Security Act 42USCĪ1382.

 

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 5 Health Annuity

 

Section 9 To repeal Affordable Care Act refundable premiums and cost-sharing reductions

 

To protect Streamlining of procedures for enrollment through an exchange and state medicaid, CHIP and health subsidy programs 42USCĪ18083 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and repeal the rest of Subchapter 4 Affordable Coverage Choices for All Americans Parts A & B 42USCĪ18071-18084 in order to abolish the refundable premium and cost-sharing reductions for the relief of the Treasury budget since January 1, 2016.

 

Section 10 Two-and-a-half percent health annuity rule reimbursements from January 1, 2016

 

1. To legislate a 2.5% health annuity so ACA and other private health insurance corporations reimburse consumers with cash or credit for the consumer overpayment of the price-gouging 20% ACA premium increase from January 1, 2016.

 

2. If Medicare doesn't reimburse beneficiaries for the 20% SMI premium inflation in 2016, down from a request of 50%, in 2016 in cash or credit, Medicare will have to be abolished and social security beneficiaries and taxpayers over the age of 65 will be automatically eligible for free Medicaid health insurance policies and will not have to pay any health insurance premiums at all.

 

a. With no COLA 2016 beneficiaries are due overpayment of $104.90 SMI premium (2015) and 0.3% COLA 2017 for overpaying 0.25% premium growth to $105.20 in 2017. With a 3% COLA in 2017 SMI premiums would increase 2.5% to $107.50 as should have occurred in 2016 under Sec. 1840 of the Social Security Act 42USCĪ1395s.

 

3. The Amount of Premiums Section 1839 of Title XVII of the Social Security Act 42USCĪ1395r(a) should be amended to be true to the one-third of cost paid for with Medicare premiums rule in effect rather than the fifty percent of cost advertised in the un-regulatory law, so:

 

4. 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.

 

i. Provided, and in proportion, with a 3% cost-of-living annuity for low income social security beneficiaries, there shall be a 2.5% increase in SMI premium. The inflation adjustment of the monthly premium of each individual enrolled is calculated from the premium price of $104.90 in 2015 rounded to the nearest 5 cents.

 

ii. The SMI deductible was $147 in 2015.

 

iii. The Drug benefit deductible was $320 in 2015. 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.

 

iv. The 2.5% health annuity rule applies equally to negotiations with private health insurance programs, health care providers, medical supply and social security beneficiaries with a three percent COLA. National health expenditures must go down from the high estimate of 17.5% of GDP in 2016 and a 2.5% health annuity will reduce spending to <10% of gross domestic product (GDP) by 2025.

 

Section 11 Medicaid Prices

 

1. To amend the word 'except' to 'including' in regards to the scope of the Federal Insurance Office as codified at 31USCĪ313(d). To repeal 'Medical records and payments' from the Fair Credit Reporting Act 15USCĪ1681a(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.

 

2. 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.

 

3. 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.

 

4. 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 6 Without Income Limit Law

 

Section 12 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)Ī430 to pay 16-24 million poor children an SSI benefits in 2017 and end poverty by 2020 with Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits ($777 (2018) + 3% COLA) for the poor.

 

Section 13 To require SSA to pay for SSI and the federal budget to pay for the USPS deficit

 

To require the Social Security Administration (SSA) to pay for old and new SSI costs with new OASDI tax revenues and to require the federal budget to begin paying for the US Postal Service deficit estimated at $20 billion in 2013 +2.5% annual growth.

 

Section 14 No t-bond sales

 

Taxing the rich about $272 billion in 2017 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 $40 billion net federal on-budget spending reduction from OASDI paying for SSI and federal budget paying for the USPS should be enough for the federal budget to earn a $100 billion surplus FY 2018. 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 2017 and poverty in the United States by 2020 by expanding the SSI program. Consumer spending will sustain economic growth.

 

Title 7 IRS Form 1040

 

Section 15 Voluntary 1-2% of Income United Nations (UN) Contribution

 

To legislate a new ÔUnited Nations Contribution: 1% to 2% of income suggested donationÕ 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 8 Rights

 

Section 16 Torture Compensation

 

a. To amend Torture 18USCĪ2340A(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 18USCĪ2340B so ÔThe 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 1987Õ.

 

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.

 

Section 17 Deprivation of Relief Benefits

 

1. To amend Deprivation of relief benefits 18USCĪ246 so '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, (age), sex, religion, (disability) or national origin, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than one year, or both'.  

 

2. Deprivation of relief benefits is a civil rights crime, has been hacked at least twice this 2016 to force labor in offense of the Slavery Convention of 1926 and remove the year sentence and then to put the year sentence back, all the while flagrantly discriminating against age and disability, as (amended in parenthesis), Age and disability must be taken into account for Congress to right the law so that it is better than it was before it was hacked.  Age and disability must be taken into account for Congress to right the law so that it is better than it was before it was hacked.  

 

3. 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.

 

Section 18 Regular Priced 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.

 

b. 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.

 

c. Common Article 26 of the Conventions Relating to the Status of Refugees and Stateless People of 1951 and 1954. 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.

 

d. 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 18USCĪ1028. 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.

 

e. Immigrant visas are issued under 8USC(12)Ī1153. Work visas are issued under 8USC(12)(II)(III)Ī1202 through a withholding of income tax on the wages of nonresident aliens under 26USC(A)(3)(A)Ī1441. 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 for fingerprinting and issuing temporary travel documents to otherwise undocumented pedestrians crossing the borders on the basis of a bilateral international background check of their fingerprints.

 

Title 9 Lefts

 

Section 19 Computer Science

 

1. Stalking under 18USCSĪ2261 and Unauthorized Access to Stored Information (hacking) under 18USCĪ2701 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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

8. 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. The NSA has so far managed to conceal its assets, but the NSA and CIA are nearly certain to suffer dramatic spending cuts incidental to the force reductions under the Arms Export Control Act FY2017, not to mention DoD CyberCommand, who does not have a criminal record with the public, in the final accounting of the FY 2018 military spending reduction to abolish the double-entry accounting for the Overseas Contingency Operation (OCO).

 

9. Microsoft must protect privacy from piracy. The Department of Justice must remove the prominence of the US v. Microsoft (2000) citation from their website and display the Microsoft SEC report in the EDGAR search engine. Current Microsoft settlements derive from the Canadian Supreme Court. The United States may drop the charges against the US passport of Edward Snowden and honorably discharge Chelsea Manning and compensate them and the families of the journalists slain in Iraq by the US military and the employing news agency. The European Commission may compensate Piratebay and Julian Assange for the Valkyrie selfie under sentences 14-16 of the Guidelines on the Role of Prosecutors and Art. 14 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights because Europe does not have a Constitution for Congress to define and punish piracy under Art. 1 Sec. 8 Clause 10 of the United States Constitution. Piratebay ( ahoy.one ) is alleged to be in prison in Scandinavia and kickass.to was seized by the United States and will hopefully be restored to the people in good health. It is unlikely Megavideo owner has lost enough weight to get back to work after the assault by US law enforcement. The European Commission can be held accountable for all the degradation to national accounting that occurred worldwide after EC breaking and entering of Windows computers through Microsoft 'backdoor'. Ireland has rebuffed EC overestimates to protect Apple and sell them to national accountants worldwide.

 

Section 20 Legalization of Marijuana Force Reduction

 

1. 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 FY 2017 force reduction by expiration of commission is needed under Art. 2 Sec. 3 of the US Constitution ($12.9 billion justice deficit reduction + $6 billion state department conversion to international assistance = $18.9 billion).

 

2. Congress must repeal the Authority for Employment of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Senior Executive Service under 5USCĪ3151-3152.  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 5USCĪ5301(b) FY 2017. 

 

3. 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), to reduce the federal budget deficit, and conversion of the State Department International Narcotic Control and Law Enforcement, International Military Education and Training, Foreign Military Finance, and War Crime Tribunal funding, including the residuals, to legitimate international assistance under the Slavery Convention (1926) and Arms Export Control Act. 

 

4. 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 based upon 2.5% annual growth. 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 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 20USCĪ112 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 34CFRĪ1200.170, and (ii) General Definitions of the Office of Museum and Library Services at 20USCĪ9101(1) replaced with (1) No stalking in the library 18USCĪ2261A(2). 'Enforcement' also needs to be repealed from Child Support in Title IV-D of the Social Security Act 42USCĪ666 et seq.

 

Section 21 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).

 

2. 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 18USCĪ1958. 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 42USCĪ2000aa.

 

3. 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 26USCĪ6423(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 27CFRĪ40.25a.

 

4. 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 10 State of the Union

 

Section 22 Disability Rate of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015

 

1. To legislate the Old Age Survivor Disability Insurance (OASDI) tax rate - 2.4% DI 10.0% OASI 2017 and 2.2% DI 10.2% OASI in 2018 when the disability rate stabilizes in the intermediate projections after the retirement of all the Baby Boomers. Payroll taxes should be able to calculate and print the employee half of these amounts on paystubs as soon as 2017 and no later than 2018 when the tax rates are stabilized at 2.2% DI 10.2% OASI. A 2.4% DI tax rate is necessary in 2017 to pay the high cost mark of the peak disability years of the Baby boomers and as a promise to taxpayers that the DI tax rate will be 2.2% in 2018 and in the intermediate future so that they donÕt prematurely deplete the DI trust fund again in 2023. At a 2.4% rate of taxation and 6% COLA the DI trust fund will save an estimated $14.4 billion in 2017, at the 2.37% rate a 6% COLA would save $12 billion instead of $17.6 billion and trust fund ratio would go up from 28% to 36%. At a 10.2% rate of taxation the OASI trust fund net assets at year-end would be -$13.3 billion and the trust fund ratio would go down from 343% in 2016 to 331% in 2017. A 3% annual COLA is required for beneficiaries to stay ahead of inflation averaging 2.7%.  A COLA is required in any year the combined OASDI trust fund ratio, 303% in 2016, is greater than 20% under Sec. 215(i) of the Social Security Act of 42USCĪ415(i).

 

2. The hacking of employee 26USCĪ3101 and employer 26USCĪ3111 Tax rates set the IRS and SSA Commissioners free to declare a 2.4% DI tax rate 2017 and 2.2% DI tax rate in 2018 and every for-seeable year thereafter in the intermediate projection, that is legible on pay-stubs. The temporary 2.37% DI tax rate 2016-19 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 is not right. Preventing a premature deficit in the OASI Trust Fund by terminating the temporary 2.37% tax rate in 2019 and reverting to the insufficient current rate of 1.8% fails to bias the tax rate to protect the smaller DI trust fund from abuse. The 2.37% rate only temporarily alleviates the immediate threat of depletion of the disability trust fund and consequential reduction of benefits is merely delayed to 2023 when the DI trust will again be prematurely depleted because of actuarial error in calculating the OASDI tax rate. The 2.37% rate does not divide nicely in half for employees and employers and not legible for everyone's Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) pay-stub. The 2.37% rate is insufficient in 2016 to pay the 3% Cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) in 2016. A 3% COLA is affordable in 2017 at either the 2.37% or 2.4% DI tax rate to avoid legal blindness jokes regarding the 0.3% COLA (2017). At either the 2.37% or 2.4% rate there is enough in the DI trust to afford beneficiaries a 6% COLA in 2017 and 3% COLA every year thereafter there is at least a 20% trust fund ratio.  SSA needs to agree to pay 3% annual COLA in the beginning of the year and should consider but not pay another 3% as backpayment for no COLA 2016 to make the 3% COLA a right for low income workers and beneficiaries CY 2017.

 

3. To prioritize child poverty, before taxing the rich, with current revenues, Congress and Commissioner must immediately make insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) patient and orphan a qualifying disability for full SSI benefits $777 (2018), $754 (2017).  Orphans will be expected to pay 1/3 of their benefits to their orphanage and save the rest for candy, car and college. The poor, children first, shall be paid with SSI when the contribution base is expanded to include incomes over the maximum taxable limit, including those of Congress-members, who haven't authorized themselves a raise since 2009.  By 2020 all 50 million poor people will receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Failure of the United States to pay legal child support obligations 18USCĪ228(b) may be treated as Attempts to evade or defeat tax 26USCĪ7201. Eliminating tax havens is a sustainable development goal and the maximum taxable limit on OASDI taxation is unique or unusual among industrialized nations and serves only to deprive the people of their subsistence under 18USCĪ246.

 

4. 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 44USCĪ3508.  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 42USCĪ415(i) under 18USCĪ246.  Disability Determination Services (DDS) are federally funded agencies in every state to whom are sent applications made to local SSA offices. DDS pays for any medical visits they require for their determination.

 

5. As the result of the 0.3% COLA (2017) the federal payment standard for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits increased from $733 a month for an individual and $1,100 for a couple in 2016 to $735 a month for an individual and $1,103 for a couple in 2017. To reform SSA must pay a three percent COLA from the beginning of 2017 to increase the federal payment standard for SSI benefits to $754 (2017) and six percent to the long-awaited $777 (2018). SSA must redress their mathematical and theological disabilities. The term ''disability'' is defined by both SSI and SSDI programs to mean the inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or which has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months as set forth by Sec. 223 of the Social Security Act 42USC(7)IIĪ423. For SSI the Internal Revenues Service (IRS) determined monthly substantial gainful amount (SGA) of income for statutorily blind individuals for 2016 is $1820 a month. For non-blind individuals, the monthly SGA amount for 2016 is $1130 a month. There is a trial-work period of nine months to provide beneficiaries with incentive to get back to work when they are attributed with $810 a month in 2016 and $840 a month in 2017. The federal poverty line for one person for 2016 is $990 a month, $1,335 for two, $1,680 for three and $2,025 for four.  Whether or not Congress taxes the rich, including themselves, who haven't authorized a pay raise for themselves since 2009, population growth in the SSI program has been anemic. One percent annual growth propaganda over-reports 0.1% growth in calculated numbers in the 2014 and 2015 Annual Reports on the SSI Program. The SSI population should grow at a normal rate of one percent to afford the three percent COLA with 4% program spending growth, without any new taxes to increase the program from 9 to 33 million in the first year of operation and then to 50 million by 2020 when every poor person would receive at least one SSI benefit. Blessed are the poor (Matthew 5:3), give to the orphans (and the insulin dependent diabetics) their property (The Women: 4.2), eligibility for SSI benefits for the Aged, Blind and Disabled under Sec. 1611 Social Security Act 42USCĪ1382 et seq.

 

Section 23 Graduation of Customs, Military and Public Health Departments

 

a. To redress the intellectual stunting of the Democratic-Republican (DR) two party system the new administration should begin by announcing the change of name of (1) the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to Public Health Department (PHD) with a budget permanently less than $1 trillion annually due to adoption of a 2.5% health annuity since 2014, the (2) Department of Defense (DoD) to Military Department (MD) and (3) the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to Customs to set Title 6 and 22 of the United States Code Foreign Relations (FR-ee) in the 2017 State of the Union Address under Art. 2 Sec. 3 of the US Constitution. These departments are to report the costs associated with their legal name changes in agency FY 2018 congressional budget requests by the July 16, 2017 deadline for the new fiscal year October 1, 2017 under 31USCĪ1106.

 

b. Federal government priority goals are set under 31USCĪ1120 - (1) to streamline the Affordable Care Act and create a Public Health Department with less than $1 trillion annual historical federal spending, (2) to reduce the corporate tax rate, (3) to legislate an automatic 3% annual increase in federal minimum wage, social security and welfare benefits, to grow faster than 2.7% average consumer inflation, (4) to promote 2.5% health annuity, insurance premium inflation, agency non-welfare spending, administrative and professional wage growth, (5) to legislate a 6% tax on coal, oil, gas and electricity exports, (6) to pay social security beneficiaries the 6% annual cost-of-living adjustment the DI trust fund ratio can afford to make a 3% COLA the law in 2017 and pay $777 a month SSI benefits in 2018 (7) to tax the rich the 12.4% OASDI tax on all their income so that SSA would pay SSI to 16-24 million poor children in 2017 and end poverty by 2020. It is too late to balance the FY 2017 budget but it is not too late to tax the rich to end child poverty calendar year 2017. If the rich are taxed and SSA assumes responsible for SSI costs during the course of FY 2017, the FY 2018 budget will turn a surplus FY 2018.

 

Section 24 To White House Office of Management and Budget

 

a. The President is requested to submit the attached budget contents to Congress to report a $50 to $110 billion FY 2018 surplus depending on whether or not the rich are taxed to end poverty by 2020, in the first week of January to first week of February to Congress under 31USCĪ1105 and defend them in the State of the Union adress under Art. 2(3) of the US Constitution.

 

1. Other Defense Civil Program and Allowances are not agencies instrumental to calculating Outlays by Agency under 31USCĪ101. To balance the federal budget the first thing that WHOM must do is 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.

 

2. Second, 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.

 

3. Third, 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 44USCĪ3504(e)(2). A human rights case is needed to justify WHOMB to dispute agency federal spending estimates in their annual congressional budget requests.

 

4. Fourth, after the deficit projection turns into an FY 2018 on-budget surplus, disregard off-budget undistributed offsetting receipts and take exact note of the off-budget 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.

 

5. Fifth, ask agency budget offices 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.

 

6. Sixth, account for new revenues in Historical Table 2.1. Tax gas, coal, oil and electricity exports 6% to better regulate hydrocarbon storage. Tax the rich the full 12.4 percent OASDI tax rate on all their income to increase off-budget revenues and expenditures by 130 percent.

 

a. True on-budget outlays and deficit will be reduced by the $60 billion (2015-16) cost of SSI in Table 4.1 less the $20 billion + 2.5% annuity for the USPS = $40 billion deficit reduction.

 

b. After the tax on the rich the Social Security on-budget row will have to be deleted and can be added into the historical Other Independent Agencies (on-budget) row that will be changed to Human Services (on-budget) to include Agency for Children and Families (ACF) and Agency for Community Living (ACL), Human Services outlays, to keep public health spending less than $1 trillion, beginning FY 2018.

 

7. Seventh, taking into consideration the sustainability of the FY 2018 surplus, reevaluate the concept of undistributed offsetting receipts with low-income and corporate tax relief so that the surplus of the Historical Tables could be accurately maintained by the Presidential review of the Congressional Budget Submissions under Article 2 Section 2 of the US Constitution at no cost under 31USCĪ502.

 

8. Eighth, future projections assume that cash welfare programs, TANF, SSI, OASDI etc., should budget for a 3% COLA to stay ahead of inflation, plus, in normal years beneficiary population growth of >1%, >104% of previous years costs. Federal spending on in-kind welfare programs like food stamps and housing assistance should grow 3% annually so population growth + average benefit growth = 3%.  Budgets are calculated 3-4% low-income welfare program growth or 3.4% t-bond interest rate + 2.5% administrative, health, education and infrastructural spending growth = 2.5-3.3%

 

9. Education and health are often considered welfare but overspending, particularly on health care, calls for regulation. Education spending growth, that fluctuates wildly, should be stabilized from the accurate year of FY 2017 at a rate of 3%, but US education spending is the second highest in the world, and the budget has fluctuated so wildly a 2.5% rate of growth is recommended until at least 2020. Health inflation needs be reduced to 2.5% until 2030 or when national health expenditures is less than 10% of GDP.

 

10. Agency non-welfare and infrastructure spending is expected to grow around 2.5%. Raises in administrative, managerial and professional wages are estimated % raise + % new employees = 2.5%.
