         UNITED STATES BUDGET PLAN 2012
     
         PUT FORTH BY L MEYER: Private citizen MAY 2011
   



    SECTION I:  TAX REFORM
                  The purpose of taxes is to fund the federal government for it's mandates
                  to help ordinary citizens in the following ways:
                    1. PROVIDE FOR NATIONAL DEFENSE
                       A. The federal government shall have standing armed forces groups
                          whose job it will be to provide national defense, intelligence
                          services, to be on call in times of national and local disasters,
                          as well as provide needed assistance to localities for minor
                          disasters as requested through local governments to the governor
                          of any state or territory at the governors discretion.

                       B. The federal government shall provide the armed forces groups
                          with the necessary training, tools and equipment needed to get
                          the job done, but with an eye toward quality, safety, and
                          value of the tools and equipment provided.

                             No longer will the G.A.O. BE THE SOLE PROVISIONARY OR RENT
                             BUILDINGS FOR USE OF GOVERNMENT ENTITIES.  IF TOOLS,
                             EQUIPMENT, OR SERVICES, CAN BE BOUGHT AT A LOCAL STORE, MANUFACTURER,
                             COMPANY, OR THROUGH AN INDIVIDUAL,
                             AT THE SAME OR BETTER QUALITY THAN THE G.A.O. CAN GET, AND AT A
                             BETTER COST POINT, AND SAVE THE GOVERNMENT MONEY, THEN IT
                             SHALL BE SO. 

                                BECAUSE THERE IS A POSIBILITY OF FRAUD OR
                             EMBEZZELMENT BY ANY PERSON GIVEN THE RESPONSIBILITY TO BUY
                             SUCH GOODS OR SERVICES THERE SHALL BE PUT IN PLACE THE FOLLOWING:
                                  1. ANY ITEM NEEDED SHALL BE REQUESTED IN WRITING BY
                                     THE PERSONNEL NEEDING SUCH AN ITEM OR SERVICE.
                            
                                  2.  ALL REQUESTS SHALL BE GIVEN TO THE C.O. OF THE
                                      FACILITY, AND SIGNED BY HIM AND AT LEAST 2 OTHER
                                      OFFICERS.
                                  3.  IF THE C.O. OF ANY FACILITY NEEDS AN ITEM OR SERVICE,
                                      THE C.O. MUST GET PERMISSION BY HIS SUPERIOR OFFICER,
                                      AND AT LEAST 2 OTHER OFFICERS OF EQUAL RANK, OR IF NONE
                                      ARE AVAILABLE THEN BY 5 OFFICERS ONE LEVEL OR LOWER,
                                      BELOW HIS RANK.
                                  4.  WHEN POSSIBLE LOCAL STORES WILL BE REQUIRED TO ALLOW
                                      THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO BUY SUCH ITEMS ON TEMPORARY
                                       CREDIT.  THE BALANCE TO BE REPAID IN 30 DAYS FOR ANY
                                       ITEMS COSTING LESS THAN $5,000, AND WITHIN 90 DAYS OF
                                       ANY ITEM COSTING UP TO $50,000, ANYTHING BEYOND THAT
                                       WILL REQUIRE A BID TO PROVIDE ITEMS OR SERVICES.
                                  5.   NO COMPANY, STORE, OR MANUFACTURER SHALL BE ALLOWED
                                       TO HAVE MORE THAN $100,000 WORTH OF ITEMS OR SERVICES
                                       BOUGHT BY A FEDERAL ENTITY, FACILITY, OR ARMED SERVICE GROUP,
                                       WITHOUT A GOVERNMENT CONTRACT TO PROVIDE SUCH THINGS.
                                       AND THEY SHALL HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE BIDDING PROCESS
                                       IN ORDER TO GET A CONTRACT.  THERE WILL NO LONGER BE
                                       ANY "NO BID" CONTRACTS GIVEN TO ANY ENTITY, INDIVIDUAL,
                                       GROUP, BUSINESS, OR MANUFACTURER WHO PROVIDES MORE
                                       $100,000 WORTH OF GOODS OR SERVICES.

                        C. THE PENTAGON WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE MANY OF ITS OWN DECISIONS ON LARGE EQUIPMENT
                           PROCUREMENT.  NO LONGER WILL CONGRESSMEN AND SENATORS BE ABLE TO DICTATE WHAT
                           IT THINKS THE PENTAGON NEEDS. THE PENTAGON WILL COME UP WITH A LIST OF THINGS IT
                           THINKS IT NEEDS BASED ON THE REALITY OF THE WORLDS POLITICAL AND MADMEN ASPIRATIONS.
                           THE CONGRESS WILL BE ABLE TO APPROVE OR DISAPPROVE ANY ITEM IN THE PENTAGONS PROCUREMENT
                           WISHLIST. HOWEVER NO SENATOR OR CONGRESSMAN SHALL SUBTRACT ANY ITEMS BASED
                           ON THEIR LOCAL CONSTITUANTS WANTS.  NO CONGRESSMAN OR SENATOR WILL BE ABLE
                           TO ADD ANYTHING TO THE LIST THAT THE PENTAGON PROVIDES AS THE GOAL IS TO JUST
                           GET THOSE THINGS THAT ARE NEEDED AND NOTHING THAT IS NOT NEEDED. 
    

                   2.  TO PROVIDE FOR A NATIONAL PARK SERVICE
                       A.  AMERICANS LIKE TO TRAVEL TO NATIONAL PARKS, AND THE PARK SERVICE WITH ITS PARK
                           RANGERS ARE THERE TO PROVIDE A SAFE AND SCENIC EXPERIENCE.
                       B.  THE PARK RANGERS ARE ALSO THERE TO PREVENT POACHING, FIRES, AND ANY
                           OTHER DESTRUCTION OF THE FEDERAL LANDS AND ANIMALS THAT LIVE ON IT.
                       C.  THE PARK SERVICE SHALL ALSO PROVIDE EDUCATION TO THE GUESTS OF THE PARK
                           BY WAY OF EXPLANATION OF THE FLORA, FAUNA, AND NATURAL LANDSCAPES THAT
                           OCCUR IN THE PARK, AS WELL AS THE RULES TO FOLLOW WHILE VISITING THERE.
                       D.  THE PARK SERVICE SHALL ALSO PROVIDE A RETAIL OUTLET, WHERE IT IS FEASIBLE,
                           WHERE VISITORS CAN BUY SOUVENIRS SO THAT THEY WILL BE LESS INCLINED TO
                           DESTROY THE NATURAL BEAUTY THE PARK PROVIDES.  THE SOUVENIRS CAN INCLUDE
                           BOOKS, MAPS, LOCAL ART WORK, POSTCARDS, PICTURES, ETC., AS WELL AS 
                           FOOD AND DRINK ITEMS FOR HIKERS, BIKERS, AND OTHER VISITORS.
                       E.  PAY AND BENEFITS SHALL BE SIMILIAR TO OTHER FEDERAL EMPLOYEES WITH THE SAME OR
                           SIMILIAR DUTIES.  ALSO, BECAUSE NATIONAL PARKS ARE OFTEN IN REMOTE LOCATIONS,
                           HOUSING WILL ALSO BE PROVIDED TO PARK RANGERS EITHER AT THE PARK ITSELF OR NEARBY.
                       F.  CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT, NOR ANY OTHER ENTITY SHALL HAVE THE POWER TO SELL OFF
                           FEDERAL LANDS,  UNLESS IT IS ALSO APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY BY 85% OF THE POPULATION
                           OF THE UNITED STATES.
                     

                 3.    TO PROVIDE FOR A NATIONAL ARCHIVE OF HISTORICAL DOCUMENTS, VIDEOS, PICTURES, CONGRESSIONAL
                       RECORDS, PRESIDENTIAL RECORDS,  AND ANYTHING ELSE OF HISTORICAL VALUE.
                       A. ALL CITIZENS ARE TO BE ABLE TO GET COPIES OF ANY DOCUMENT OR OTHER MEDIA FORM, OF
                          HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE OLDER THAN 5 YEARS, UNLESS NATIONAL SECURITY WOULD BE AFFECTED.
                          1.  NATIONAL SECURITY CONCERNS ARE NOT TO INCLUDE ANYTHING THAT IS JUST EMBARRASSING.
                    
                          2.  NATIONAL SECURITY CONCERNS MUST INCLUDE ANYTHING THAT IS OF A PHYSICALLY TACTICAL
                              NATURE.  ALL PRESIDENTS SHOULD HAVE ACCESS TO SUCH INFORMATION TO HELP MAKE DETERMINATIONS
                              ON WHETHER OR NOT SUCH TACTICAL ITEMS NEED TO BE UPGRADED OR DISMANTLED IN ORDER TO
                              INSURE A VIABLE NATIONAL DEFENSE. 
                          3.  ALSO WAR PLANS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN IMPLEMENTED, INTELLIGENCE GATHERING PROTOCOLS,
                              PROVIDED THAT THEY DO NOT VIOLATE THE GENEVA CONVENTION, AND THE TARGETS OF NUCLEAR AND
                              TACTICAL WEAPONS SYSTEMS ARE OF NATIONAL SECURITY CONCERN.
                          4.  ANY PRESIDENT WHO IS, OR HAS BEEN IN OFFICE, CAN BE PROSECUTED FOR EITHER WAR CRIMES
                              OR FOR VIOLATING THE RIGHTS OF CITIZENS IN THE UNITED STATES AND AROUND THE WORLD,
                              UNLESS THE PERSON IN QUESTION IS A TERRORIST OR A MAJOR CRIMINAL THEMSELVES SUCH AS
                              A DRUG RUNNER, GUN OR WEAPONS RUNNER, A SLAVE TRADER, OR A PIRATE.
                     
                

                 4.   TO PROVIDE ALL CITIZENS WITH HEALTHCARE
                
                      A. ALL CITIZENS SHOULD HAVE A RIGHT TO NATIONAL HEALTHCARE.  ALL HOSPITALS AND CLINICS WILL
                         BECOME NATIONALIZED AND NON PROFIT. ALL PHYSICIAN,  CHIROPRACTIC, DENTAL HEALTH, MENTAL HEALTH,
                         HEARING AND VISION SERVICES WILL BE A PART OF NATIONAL HEALTHCARE 
                        
                         1. ALL DOCTORS, NURSES, SCIENTISTS, AND OTHER STAFF MEMBERS WILL BECOME GOVERNMENT
                            EMPLOYEES WITH A SET SALARY IN LINE WITH THE EDUCATION AND SERVICE THAT
                            PERSON PROVIDES.
                            A. IF YOUR ARE A SPECIALIST DOCTOR FOR EXAMPLE YOU MAY GET A SALARY OF UP TO
                               $150,000/YR, A GENERALIST MAY GET UP TO $130,000/YR.  A PHYSICIANS ASSISTANT
                               MAY GET UP TO $110,000/YR AN RN $90,000/YR, LPN  $60,000, CNA 40,000 AND THE REST
                               WITHOUT HIGHER EDUCATION ABOUT $25,000/YR. THIS SEEMS FAIR TO ME AS PHYSICIANS
                               WILL NO LONGER BE REQUIRED TO PAY STAFF OR BUY MALPRACTICE INSURANCE.  HOWEVER
                               IF ANYONE IS FOUND GUILTY OF MORE THAN 3 MALPRACTICE COMPLAINTS AGAINST THEM
                               IN A YEAR OR 5 WITHIN 2 YEARS YOU WILL LOSE YOUR LICENSE TO PRACTICE MEDICINE
                               FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS. AND IN THAT TIME IF YOU DO NOT GO BACK TO GET THE
                               TRAINING THAT YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY LACKING, AND RETAKE THE MEDICAL BOARD EXAM,
                               YOU WILL LOSE YOUR JOB PERMANENTLY.
                            B. THE FUNDING FOR NATIONAL HEALTHCARE WILL BE A SURTAX OF 15% OF ALL INCOME EARNED
                               BY ANY COMPANY OR INDIVIDUAL WHO CONDUCTS BUSINESS IN OR WORKS IN THE UNITED STATES,
                               EXCEPT FOR THE FIRST $12,000 OF AN INDIVIDUALS EARNED INCOME SHALL BE TAXED AT THE 5%
                               RATE. 
                              
                               
                         2. BECAUSE COST CONTROLS ARE ESSENTIAL TO NATIONAL HEALTHCARE WORKING,  THE FEDERAL
                            GOVERNMENT SHALL, FROM NOW ON ARRANGE TO BUY DRUGS FROM PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES,
                            PROSTHETICS FROM DEVICE COMPANIES THAT MAKE THEM AND POSSIBLY OTHER DEVICES
                            AS WELL LIKE DIALYSIS MACHINES, HEART/LUNG MACHINES, MRI' AND CT SCANNERS AMONG OTHERS,
                            THE SAME WAY OTHER COUNTRIES DO, BY NEGOTIATING PRICES, AND BUYING IN BULK WHERE POSSIBLE.
          
                           A. THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES AND THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR SHALL
                              NEGOTIATE WITH DRUG COMPANIES, PROSTHETIC AND DEVICE COMPANIES FOR BEST PRICES POSSIBLE.

                           B. THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH SHALL ALSO BE TRYING TO DEVELOP DRUG
                              PROTOCOLS FOR THOSE DISEASES OF INDIVIDUALS FOR WHOM DRUG COMPANIES
                              ARE CURRENTLY IGNORING BECAUSE THE PROFIT IS NOT WORTH THE COST OF DEVELOPEMENT.
 
                           C. THE CURRENT INSURANCE MARKET WILL BE ABLE TO PROVIDE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES FOR
                              INDIVIDUALS WHO WOULD LIKE FOR A GUARANTEE TO TRANSPLANT SERVICES AS WELL AS
                              FOR WEALTHIER INDIVIDUALS TO GET THEIR HEALTHCARE THROUGH FOR PROFIT ENTITIES THAT WISH
                              TO PROVIDE SUCH SERVICES.
                           
                              1. ALL CURRENT HOSPITALS AND CLINICS WILL BE NATIONALIZED. 
                                 IF ANY DOCTOR OR OTHER SPECIALIST WISHES TO NOT BE A GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE THEY
                                 CAN START ANOTHER FOR PROFIT CLINIC FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO WISH TO AVOID GOVERNMENT HEALTHCARE.
                           
                              2. BECAUSE COSTS ARE WEIGHED AGAINST OUTCOMES FOR EXPERIMENTAL SERVICES, CURRENT INSURANCE
                                 COMPANIES CAN PROVIDE COVERAGE FOR EXPERIMENTAL DRUGS, EXPERIMENTAL SURGERIES,
                                 COSMETIC SURGERIES, ELECTIVE SURGERIES, ABORTION SERVICES, AND ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE THERAPIES LIKE
                                 ACCUPUNCTURE, FENG SHUI, AND MASSAGE THERAPIES.

                             
                  B.  INSURANCE COMPANIES WILL HAVE TO FIND NEW PRODUCTS AND SERVICES SUCH AS THOSE OUTLINED ABOVE
                      OR THEY WILL HAVE TO CEASE BEING.
                        1. IF INSURANCE COMPANIES WISH TO REMAIN VIABLE ENTITIES, THEN THEY WILL HAVE TO PROVIDE OTHER SERVICES.
                        2. INSURANCE COMPANIES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO HAVE MORE THAN A 20% PROFIT ON SERVICES THEY PROVIDE.
           
                        3. C.E.O., C.F.O., AND C.O.O., SALARY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE DEDUCTED AS A BUSINESS EXPENSE.
                       
                        4. IRREGULARITIES IN YOUR BOOKS OR TRYING TO NOT PAY TAXES ON PROFITS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED
                           AND YOUR COMPANY WILL BE DISSOLVED.

                             
                               
               5.  TO PROVIDE CITIZENS WITH A SAFETY NET.
                
                    A. ALL CITIZENS WILL BE ENTITLED TO A JOB IF THEY ARE CAPABLE OF DOING ONE, AND UNEMPLOYMENT
                       INSURANCE IF THEY LOSE THEIR JOB.
                       1.  ALL CITIZENS WILL BE ALLOWED TO BE ON UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE UNTIL:
                           A. ANOTHER JOB IS FOUND, OR
                          
                           B. THE PERSON TURNS DOWN A JOB THAT IS OFFERED
                          
                           C. THE PERSON FAILS TO PUT IN AT LEAST 2 APPLICATIONS PER WEEK UNLESS THE PERSON IS
                              UNABLE TO DO SO BECAUSE OF ILLNESS OR INJURY.
                           D. THE REASON FOR THE LOSS OF A JOB IS THEFT, ABUSE OR ASSAULT OF ANOTHER PERSON,
                              PROPERTY, OR AN ANIMAL.
                      
                       2.  IF A JOB IS NOT OFFERED OR FOUND WITHIN THE FIRST 3 MONTHS OF LOSING A JOB
                           A. WHEN FEASABLE, THE GOVERNMENT WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH A JOB IN RETURN FOR YOUR
                              UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS.
                             
                              1. THE GOVERNMENT CAN REQUIRE YOU TO WORK UP TO 20 HOURS A WEEK DOING THINGS LIKE
                                 PICKING UP TRASH ON THE HIGHWAYS AND OTHER STREETS, PROVIDING CHILDCARE FOR LOW INCOME
                                 PARENTS, BECOMING A TUTOR FOR A CHILD(REN), DOING CHARITABLE WORK LIKE HELP CLEAN UP
                                 AFTER A DISASTER OR DOING SERVICES FOR LOW INCOME SENIORS WHO NEED HELP WITH THINGS

                              2. TRANSPORTATION WILL BE PROVIDED BY THE LOCALITY WHERE THE WORK IS TO TAKE PLACE
  
                              3. PROPER EQUIPMENT AS NEEDED WILL ALSO BE PROVIDED. INCLUDING SAFETY EQUIPMENT,
                                 AND ANY TOOLS NEEDED TO PERFORM ANY JOB YOU ARE GIVEN.

                              4. THE ONLY EXCEPTIONS FROM WORKING WILL BE FOR:
                                 A. CONTINUING EDUCATION CLASSES THAT YOU TAKE THAT INCREASE YOUR KNOWLEDGE
                                    AND BETTERMENT OF JOB PROSPECTS INCLUDING WORKING TOWARDS A DEGREE OR A
                                    CERTIFICATE THAT MAY LAND YOU A JOB EASIER.
                                 B. ILLNESS, ACCIDENT, OR DISABILTY THAT PREVENTS YOU FROM WORKING
                                    AT YOUR EDUCATIONAL LEVEL.
                                 C. CHRONIC MENTAL DISEASE WHICH IS DIAGNOSED BY A PSYCHOLOGIST OR PSYCHIATRIST
                                    WHICH MAKES YOU UNSTABLE AS AN INDIVIDUAL.


              6. TO PROVIDE SENIORS AND THE DISABLED WITH SOCIAL SECURITY
 
                 A. CURRENTLY THE SOCIAL SECURITY TRUST FUND HAS A SURPLUS BUT THAT WILL NOT LAST MUCH LONGER.
                    THE FOLLOWING ITEMS ARE HOW TO FIX SOCIAL SECURITY SO THAT IT WILL BE VIABLE FOR
                    GENERATIONS TO COME.
                   
                    1. ELIMINATE THE INCOME CAP THAT IS CURRENTLY IN PLACE SO THAT ALL INCOME IS TAXED FOR SOCIAL
                       SECURITY.
        
                    2. INCREASE THE SOCIAL SECURITY TAX BY 2%
     
                    3. MAKE IT SO THAT THE SOCIAL SECURITY TRUSTFUND CANNOT BE SPENT BY CONGRESS EXCEPT
                       IN TIMES OF WAR OR NATIONAL DISASTER AND THEN ONLY 10% OF THE TRUST FUND CAN BE SPENT.

              7.  TO REGULATE BUSINESSES AND CORPORATIONS
                 A. FINANCIAL SERVICES, BANKING SERVICES, INVESTMENT SERVICES, COMODITY MARKETS, AND INSURANCE REGULATION
                 
                    1. NO COMPANY WILL BE ALLOWED TO BE MORE THAN 20% (EXCEPT FOR THE FEDERAL OR STATE GOVERNMENT OR
                       OTHER FEDERAL OR STATE ENTITY), OF THE PROVIDER OF ANY GOOD OR SERVICE IN ANY SINGLE STATES'
                       GEOGRAPHIC AREA AND NOT MORE THAN A 3% PROVIDER OF ANY GOOD OR SERVICE ON THE
                       NATIONAL OR GLOBAL LEVEL. IF SUCH A THING OCCURS THE COMPANY WILL BE BROKEN UP INTO
                       PIECES IN ORDER TO TRY TO ENSURE THAT NO ECONOMIC COLLAPSE WILL EVER HAPPEN AGAIN.

                       TOO BIG TO FAIL IS HEREBY OUTLAWED.

                    2. DIRIVATIVE MARKETS ARE TO BE CLOSELY MONITORED AND A 20% SURTAX ON BOTH THE FRONT AND BACK
                       END OF ANY DIRITATIVE OR OTHER SIMILIAR ENTITY WILL BE COLLECTED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
                       AS A REGULATORY TAX AND 50% OF IT WILL BE PUT AWAY AND HELD IN A TRUST IN CASE ANOTHER
                       ECONOMIC COLLAPSE TAKES PLACE.
                   
                    3. NO BANK CAN HOLD A DIRIVATIVE AND NO INSURANCE COMPANY CAN HAVE SERVICES LIKE A BANK.

                    4. THERE IS TO BE A 20% SURTAX ON THE FRONT AND BACK END OF THE COMMODITY MARKET FOR THOSE PEOPLE
                       BUSINESSES, CORPORATIONS AND OTHERS WHO INVEST MORE THAN $20,000 IN ANY SINGLE COMMODITY.
                       IT IS OBVIOUS THAT SPECULATORS ARE THE ONES WHO ARE DRIVING UP PRICES FOR THINGS LIKE
                       OIL AND GAS, COTTON, WHEAT, MILK, CORN AND OTHERS.  ALSO THE COMMODITY MARKET MUST REFLECT THE
                       AMOUNT OF THOSE ITEMS IN THE MARKET ARE TRUE TO WHAT IS ACTUALLY BEING PRODUCED.  SOME ESTIMATES
                       ARE THAT THERE ARE UP TO 15 TIMES MORE THINGS BEING TRADED THAT WHAT IS ACTUALLY PRODUCED.
                    5.  FINANCIAL SERVICES CAN BE EITHER PART OF A BANK OR AN INVESTMENT COMPANY OR AN INSURANCE COMPANY
                        BUT IT CANNOT OPERATE IN MORE THAN ONE OF THOSE ENTITIES DUE TO THE FACT THAT DEFRAUDING CUSTOMERS
                        SEEMS TO BE THE END RESULT OF SUCH CONGLOMERATES.
     
                    6.  NONE OF THESE ENTITIES SHALL USE THEIR CUSTOMERS MONEY FOR THEIR OWN FINANCIAL GAIN WITHOUT
                        GIVING THOSE CUSTOMERS AT LEAST 10 PERCENT OF THE PROFITS, AND THEN ONLY WITH THEIR
                        CUSTOMERS CONSENT SHALL THEY BE ALLOWED TO USE THAT MONEY. 
                    7.  ALL PROFITS OF ANY OF THESE WILL BE TAXED AT THE 35% RATE NO EXCEPTIONS OR EXEMPTIONS.     

                 B.  MANUFACTURING, MINING, OIL AND GAS PRODUCTION, FARMING, AND ENERGY CREATION
                    1. ANY COMPANY, CORPORATION, OR INDIVIDUAL WHO OPERATES A BUSINESS WHICH POLLUTES SHALL BE LIABLE
                       FOR ALL MEDICAL AND SPECIAL NEEDS COSTS OF ANY INDIVIDUAL OR OTHER BUSINESS WHO IS HARMED BY
                       ANY TOXIC SUBSTANCE, GAS, POLLUTION, OR OTHER UNSAVORY DEED THAT THE SAID ENTITY RELEASED OR DID.
                    2. NO INDIVIDUALS, BUSINESSES, COMPANIES AND CORPORATIONS WILL BE GIVEN TAX INCENTIVES
                       TO PRODUCE THEIR GOODS AND SERVICES.
 
                    3. ALL COMPANIES WILL BE TAXED AT A RATE OF 35% NO EXCEPTIONS OR EXEMPTIONS.

                    4. FARMERS WILL BE ENCOURAGED TO TRY NEW TYPES OF FARMING IN ORDER TO GET A BETTER RESULT. 
                       ANY FARMER WHO TRIES TO GO ORGANIC AND NON GENETICLY MODIFIED, WILL HAVE THE FEDERAL
                       GOVERNMENT PAY HALF OF THEIR PROPERTY TAXES FOR THE FIRST 5 YEARS OF PRODUCTION.
                    5.  GREEN ENERGY INITIATIVES ARE NEEDED FOR INDIVIDUALS TO BE ABLE TO FIT THEIR HOMES AND
                        BUSINESSES WITH SOLAR PANELS, WIND AND WATER TURBINES. 
                         1. THE ELECTRICAL GRID IN THE UNITED STATES IS OLD AND IN DISREPAIR. THEREFORE THE GOVERNMENT
                            ALONG WITH THE HELP OF ELECTRIC UTILITIES WILL BE MAKING AN EFFORT TO IMPROVE AND MODERNIZE
                            THE ELECTRICAL GRID.
                         2. TAX INCENTIVES FOR INDIVIDUALS, BUSINESSES,  AND ELECTRIC COMPANIES TO PRODUCE MORE
                            GREEN ENERGY IS NEEDED.
                           
                            A. IF AN ENTITY BUYS A GREEN ENERGY SYSTEM THEY MAY TAKE 30% OF THE INITIAL COST OF THE SYSTEM
                               OFF IN THE FIRST YEAR THAT IT IS INSTALLED.  THEN THEY MAY TAKE AND ADDITIONAL 10% OF THE
                               COST OF THE SYSTEM OFF THEIR TAXES IN THE 2ND YEAR THEY HAVE IT.
      
                            B. ELECTRIC COMPANIES ARE HELPED WHEN THE EXTRA ENERGY PRODUCED BY A GREEN ENERGY CUSTOMER
                               GOES BACK INTO THE GRID WHEN THE CUSTOMER IS PRODUCING MORE GREEN ENERGY THAN THEY NEED. SO
                               THE ELECTRIC COMPANY NEEDS TO PAY THE CUSTOMER FOR THE ENERGY THEY PRODUCE AND SEND BACK TO THE GRID.
                            C. A NATIONAL REWARD WILL BE GIVEN TO ANY COMPANY OR INDIVIDUAL THAT PRODUCES AN ECONOMICLY
                               VIABLE GREEN ENERGY SYSTEM THAT IS DIFFERENT FROM WHAT ALREADY EXISTS.  THE GOAL IS TO NOT NEED FOSSIL FUELS
                               IN THE FUTURE AS THE WORLD WIDE OIL RESEVES WILL BE ABOUT GONE IN 50 YEARS OR LESS.
                               THE COMPANY WILL RECIEVE $10 MILLION DOLLARS AND BE HOSTED AT THE WHITEHOUSE FOR A DINNER AND
                               AN ANNOUCEMENT TO THE COUNTRY OF YOUR INNOVATIVE DESIGN AND A MEDAL OF INNOVATION WILL ALSO BE GIVEN.
                        3. ELECTRIC VEHICLES AS WELL AS OTHER ALTERNATIVES WILL BE INCENTIVIZED.  20% OF THE COST OF AN
                           ALTERNATIVE FUEL VEHICLE WILL BE TAKEN OFF YOUR TAXES.  1 DEDUCTION WILL BE ALLOWED EVERY THREE YEARS
                           FOR THE NEXT 21 YEARS OR UNTIL 30% OF THE VEHICLES ON THE ROAD ARE ALTERNATIVE FUEL VEHICLES.



            8. TAX RATES FOR INDIVIDUALS
            
                 1. ALL INCOME WILL BE TAXED AT THE SAME RATE AS EARNED INCOME IS THE ONLY EXCEPTION WILL BE SOCIAL
                    SECURITY INCOME AND SSI INCOME. 
                
                 2. THERE WILL BE A PHASE OUT OF THE CHILD TAX CREDIT AND THE MORTGAGE INTEREST CREDIT OVER THE NEXT
                    10 YEARS.  IT WILL GO DOWN 10%  FOR EACH OF THE NEXT TEN YEARS. SO SINCE THE TAX CREDIT IS $1000
                    IT WILL GO DOWN BY $100 FOR EACH OF THE NEXT TEN YEARS.  MORTGAGE INTEREST FOR THOSE THOSE WHO
                    CAN GET IT WILL BE REDUCED BY 10%  THE FIRST YEAR 20% THE SECOND YEARAND SO ON UNTIL THERE IS
                    NO LONGER A DEDUCTION TO TAKE.
                 3.  THE TAX SCHEDULE WILL BE LIKE THIS:
                     0-10,000                     0%
                     10,000- $20,000              5%.
                     20,000.01- 60,000           12%
                     60,000.01- 100,000          20%
                     100,000.01-160,000          29%
                     160,000.01- 240,000         35%
                     240,000.01- 500,000         39%
                     500,000.01-990,000          43%
                     990,000.01- 5,000,000       50%
                     5,000,000.01- 10,000,000    65%
                     ABOVE 10,000,000            80%
                    
                     ALSO YOU CAN CLAIM AS A DEPENDENT ANYONE WHO MAKES UP TO 15,000/YR PROVIDED YOU CAN
                     PROVE THAT YOU PROVIDED MORE THAN 50% OF THEIR EXPENSES FOR THE YEAR. ALSO A SINGLE
                     PERSON CAN CLAIM HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD WITH NO DEPENDENTS NEEDED.




  SECTION II: FEDERAL AND STATE GOVERNMENT REFORM
              1. NO STATE SHALL MAKE A LAW HARSHER THAN FEDERAL LAW.
 
              2. LAWS ACROSS THE STATES FOR COMMON CRIMES NEED TO REFLECT PUNISHMENT
                 VALUES OF SIMILIAR LENGTH AND TYPE. FOR INSTANCE MURDER 1 WITH NO EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES
                 AND BASED ON SOLID EVIDENCE AND NOT CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE SHOULD BE AN AUTOMATIC LIFE IN
                 PRISON WITH NO PAROLE. WHILE A DRUG CHARGE FOR MARIJUANA POSSESSION SHOULD ONLY RESULT
                 IN A FINE, UNLESS SAID INDIVIDUAL IS AN UNLICENCED DEALER IN WHICH CASE THEY SHOULD GET 1
                 YEAR IN PRISON AND A FINE. I NOTE THAT MANY STATES NOW ALLOW FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA USE AND
                 ACTUALLY LICENSE GROWERS WHO DO HAVE LICENSES ISSUED IN THEIR HOME STATES. 
              3. STATE LAWS CAN BE MORE LAX IN SOME AREAS, HOWEVER NOT WHEN IT IT COMES TO THE HEALTH AND SAFETY
                 ITS CITIZENS. 
              4. ALL STATE AND FEDERAL ELECTIONS WILL BE PAID FOR BY THE FEDERAL OR STATE GOVERNMENT. 

              5. NO ELECTED OFFICIAL OF LOCAL, STATE, OR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHALL RECIEVE ANY FUNDS OR
                 GIFTS FROM ANY LOBBIEST OR CORPORATION, OR INDIVIDUAL WHO IS PETITIONING THE GOVERNMENT
                 TO HEAR OF ANY CONCERN OR LAW THAT THEY WOULD LIKE ADDRESSED. 
            
              6. ANY GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL WHO RECIEVES ANY FUNDS, WHICH IS NOT A GOVERNMENT SALARY, OR GIFTS EVEN IF
                 IT IS ON BEHALF OF A FAVORITE CHARITY SHALL LOSE THEIR SEAT IN GOVERNMENT AND WILL BE
                 PROSECUTED FOR EXTORTION.
              7. NO ELECTED OR APPOINTED OFFICIAL CAN WRITE A LAW BENEFITING ANY SPECIFIC COMPANY OR SECTOR AND

Will the Tea Party continue to hold the government hostage?

Tonight the Democrats and Republicans agreed to another stop gap measure to fund the government through the middle of next week.  The major sticking points were the funding to Planned Parenthood and E.P.A . oversight of our air and water quality.  The Tea Party and the Republicans are trying to make an ideological argument for dropping womens health services and consumer protections on envirnmental issues into key issues in a budget battle that the Republicans kept blocking in the senate last year. Senator Mitch Mc Connell is noteworthy in the fact that he decided last year not to let the fiscal year 2011 budget go through until there were more republicans to fight for their social issues in the house and senate. Mc Connell believed ,erroneously, that the republicans would be controlling both the house and senate after the last election cycle. 
    There is much to be concerned about in this budget bill.  All we know is that it has 39 billion dollars in cuts, which will mostly affect the poor and middle class.  There also is reportedly some more tax breaks for businesses and the wealthy in this country which should not be in this budget bill. 
    There will be more fights to come during the next few weeks and months on the Ryan Plan to get rid of social security and medicare and replace it with a block grant to states to subsidize, for seniors who will now have to buy insurance on the open market,  insurance payments to private companies so those companies can make a huge profit on the backs of seniors and take that money out of the federal government for replacement of medicare and medicaid.  It is a subsidy to seniors to buy insurance on the open market, and if Ryans previous bill, is what he is basing the amounts on, then seniors will only get about $2500.00 in tax subsidies to buy their insurance out of pocket.  the CBO says it will cost seniors about $20,000.00 more in out of pocket costs under the Ryan Plan.  Most seniors I know, don't make nearly enough money to be able to afford those kinds of costs.  The better way to protect medicare is to raise the tax on medicare and to allow everyone to be able to buy into medicare.  After all medicare only has a 2% overhead cost for administration vs private insurance overhead costs of between 10-50% based on the high CEO pay and the dividends for shareholders. Also Ryan wants to get rid of the healthcare law which ends discrimination of pre-existing conditions as a reason to deny people healthcare.  Did you know that just being a woman is a pre-existing condition that an insurance company denies healthcare to on a regular basis?  Also that women pay more for insurance than men for the same policy?  Currently there are over 600 reasons that an insurance company can deny you coverage for, from the mundane, like acne, to the serious, like heart disease.  Here is just one insurance underwriters web site out of California which lists just a few of the reasons that you may be denied insurance:
 http://www.insurance.ca.gov/0100-consumers/0070-health-issues/ind-health-insurance-underwriting-ab-356.cfm 
    If you one of the lucky people out there who doesn't have a pre-existing condition or the family history or propensity for various disease processes, CONGRATULATIONS!  You have been lucky enough to have been blessed with fantastic genes.  The majority of us are not so lucky as you.  I personally have at least 6 of the items on that list which would either deny me coverage outright or cause me to have premiums much higher than I could ever possibly afford.  Is that fair?  Is it fair that anyone could be denied coverage just because of family medical history?  How can we claim to be an inclusive people and still deny people basic human services?  No one in this country should ever have to go with out the basics of food, shelter, clothing, education, a job,  and medical care.  Anyone who would deny anyone else the same privileges that they, themselves recieve is a selfish idiot.  100% employment however is frowned upon by the fed and the chamber of commerce. Presumably because it would send wages and benefits skyrocketing as people could easily jump from job to job looking for the best deal. 
    Another problem with the Ryan bill is that it really has nothing to do with reducing the national debt.  Instead what is in it is a severe reduction in social programs which help the elderly, disabled, poor and middle class and takes most of the 4.3 trillion dollars in savings and gives 4.2 trillion of it to the rich and multi-nationals in the form of tax breaks and subsidies.  Once again giving a huge windfall to corporations and the rich, at the expense of the poor and middle class.  The better idea again would be to go back to the tax rates of the 1950's and 1960's when the highest tax rates were 90+% .   Back then companies actually put money back into their companies and expanded them instead of taking the money out of the business and sending it into an account overseas.  The wealthy still did really well, much better than anyone else in the country, but there was also a vibrant and growing middle class at that time too.  The wealthy were more apt to give their employees an excellent wage because they could write it off as a business expense, and therefore lower their tax bill.  Instead of that economy, we have been using the Reagan failed policies of trickle down economics which does not and never will work.  The republicans keep trying to expand that failed policy by giving out even more tax breaks to the wealthy and multi-national corporations in the mistaken beleif that it will work this time.  It hasn't worked since Reagan tried it in the 1980's there is no reason to believe it will work now.
    The other major fight is the raising of the debt ceiling.  The Tea Party Republicans would love to shut the government down on that issue.  If they do, I shudder to think of the massive and far ranging implications of such a move.  It would cause another world wide recession if not another depression,  Interest rates would sky rocket into the double digits, and we would experience hyper-inflation, the likes of which we have never seen before.  The hyper inflation would mean people would not be able to feed their families, as a loaf of bread may suddenly be $20-25, a gallon of milk would be $10-15, and a jar of peanut butter would be around $50.  There would not be very many people who wouldn't be starving in such a situation.
    Social programs are the life blood and the safety net of our society.  Especially now when there are so many people out of work and have been for a long time.  We need to make sure that the least among us are taken care of , whether that means the sick, the elderly, children and the unemployed.  All who want to work and who are able to work need to be given jobs, even if it means you just pay people to pick up garbage along our roads and highways, as a way to earn an honest living until something better can come along for those people.  Or you could have them in nursing homes, which are notoriously understaffed, to help take care of those patients, who are otherwise being neglected, due to lack of staffing and funding of those institutions.  There should be lots of areas where the government can put these people back to work, on a temporary basis for a couple of years until the economy gets back on track.  Too many cuts in the budget will only serve to send us back into another recession or depression.

Governor Scott Walker DICTATOR

Dictator Governor Scott Walker has said that he will sign the illegally voted on bill
into law as soon as possible.  This bill is nothing more than a major power grab.
It strips public unions of their ability to collectively bargain for things like decent wages,
decent working conditions, and other benefits like healthcare. It also allows for discrimination against LGBT individuals in this state. There
also will be major de-regulation of corporations and utilities.  No more consumer protections for anyone living here in this state either.   
It also gives Walker the absolute power to fire any and all current government workers, give away
Wisconsins publicly held utility companies, with no oversight or input into how the transfer takes place. 
It gets rid of the Public service commission which regulates nuclear and other forms of electrical power generation.
I believe Walker will be turning those utilities over to Koch Industries as soon as possible.
I also believe that almost all current workers at those facilities will be fired so that the Koch brothers can put their own untrained staff in place.
If you are one of the few who is not fired it will only be a temporary situation for you , as the Koch bothers will need someone at least temporarily to train their scab workers. 
Teachers may get spared until the end of the school year at which point Walker will likely fire all teachers,
social workers, janitors, bus drivers, and anyone else whom the governor believes he doesn't need to work for the state.
He will likely then turn over the schools over to corporate interests, who can then brain wash your children into believing that they are only worth a $5.00/hr wage.
I would suggest that anyone who lives within 30 miles of a nuclear power plant to move away, as there will likely be releases of nuclear material into the air and water until Koch industries can train their new employees.
Don't be surprised when your utility bill goes up 400% either as Koch Industries will
have a virtual monopoly on energy production and distribution in the state of Wisconsin.
Please help with the recall efforts to get rid of those republicans who voted for this illegal bill.  Operations are underway right now to recall 8 republican state senators and that needs to get expanded to include assembly men as well.

My letter to Obama 02 09 2011

President Obama,
You keep proving by words and actions that you are no better than republicans when it comes to helping the poor and the middle class.  You, like your republican co-workers as well as the Democrat co-workers keep proving time and time again that you are not to be trusted.  98% of you in the federal government are bought and paid for by big business. Your love of office verses the greater good of the rest of the country takes a backseat to the promise of a better life for those of us who are not in the top 2% of income.  You & your colleagues keep taking kickbacks, which anywhere else in the United States would be called taking ILLEGAL BRIBES and EXTORTION. I thought you said you were going to clean up Washington DC, but instead you became part of the problem.  You are taking your marching orders from lobbyists instead of the will and needs of the American people.  MONEY IS ALL YOU PEOPLE ON CAPITAL HILL CARE ABOUT AND TO HELL WITH THE REST OF US WHO ACTUALLY PAY YOUR SALARIES!!!  SHAME ON YOU ALL!!!!!

As you can see I'm not happy with the president or nearly anyone else on Capital Hill.  Extortion and kickbacks are the normal way that Washington operates, and neither party is any better than the other one.  They have both proven their willingness to be steered by lobbyist into giving them what their big corporate donors want:  LOOPHOLES THAT ALLOW CORPORATIONS TO PAY LITTLE OR NO TAXES AND AN END TO REGULATIONS THAT PROTECT CONSUMERS, AND THE VULNERABLE OF OUR SOCIETY FROM BEING PREYED UPON BY THOSE SAME CORPORATIONS.

There are things that average Americans can do, but it will take a willingness to ACT, which is something most Americans are unwilling to do.  We can have demonstrations like they are having in Egypt in order to force our politicians to reform campaign finance laws and make it illegal for lobbyists to operate and bribe our elected officials.  We can also force them to RESCIND the right of corporations to BE COUNTED AND TREATED LIKE A HUMAN INSTEAD OF A  BUSINESS ENTITY.   Corporations keep believing, (and the law has allowed) that they should have the human right of free speech, which for them means, throwing as much money as they can at a campaigns in the form of issue ads, that don't have to tell the truth about any issue that they are trying to sway voters on.  Also it means being able to pay lobbyists to bribe our politicians with campaign donations in return for bills and laws that favor them instead of the overall well being of the American people.  I have found that most Americans are lazy when it comes to trying to find out an actual truth about an issue, and instead believe whatever their favorite party and ads tell them to believe. Most people are unwilling to take the time and effort needed, to make an actual informed decision, about any issue at hand.   

How do we change the American apathy?  I don't know.  I suspect however if the gap between the rich and poor gets much nwider that there will be a civil and social war that will make the original civil war look like nothing.  The few rich (and those that they can brainwash into believing that the rich actually help them) will be at war with the masses of poor i n this nation.  The difference will be numbers of the poor and middle class verses the best weaponry and well trained armys that money can buy.  I'm not sure who will win but I'm positive that America as a whole will lose in the long run unless we can equalize  pay and opportunities for the majority of the country.  There should not be such a gap in income, that is created in part by a tax code that favors the extremely wealthy over the rest of us.  The extremely wealthy, after al,l can pay lobbyists and politicians to tweek the tax code in their favor, while the rest of us are at the mercy of the whims of the rich and the politicians.

Republicans are proving time and time again that the only people that they care about are the very wealthy and the multi-national corporations that use tax havens and loopholes in tax code to not pay their fair share.
The Republicans have come out with their plan to take food out of the mouths of the poor, to take medicare out of the hands of those who need it most, eliminate a great potion of the pell grant and federal educational loan program, and get rid of any possibility for jobs for anyone who is currently unemployed as well as the safety nets that are supposed to help them.  

 The game is rigged and Americans had better wake up soon or they will find themselves with no social security,  no retirement, no worker safety(OSHA), an environment that is toxic(EPA), no safety of food or drugs(FDA), no product safety(CPSC),  no right to an education,  and no medical careamong other things.  All those things that I believe should be considered HUMAN RIGHTS will be reserved only for the wealthy and those who can afford such things.  No one wants to pay more in taxes, but in a free society, it is the price one pays for the programs and services that most people in the United States wants.  You must make a choice:
   
 DO YOU WANT:                                              pay more in taxes                     pay less in taxes

 FIRE FIGHTERS?                                             YES                                                   NO

A STRONG MILITARY?                                  YES                                                 NO

DRUG SAFETY?                                               YES                                                 NO

DO PROFESSIONALS NEED TO HAVE
MINIMUM  STANDARDS APPLIED?            YES                                                NO

SHOULD EDUCATION BE A RIGHT?            YES                                               NO

SHOULD FOOD, SHELTER AND
CLOTHING BE A RIGHT?                                YES                                              NO

SHOULD CRIMINALS GO TO JAIL?              YES                                              NO

VIGILANTE JUSTICE?                                      NO                                              YES

LET HOMES BURN                                           NO                                              YES

LET DRUG COMPANIES SELL POISONS?    NO                                              YES

LET MANUFACTURES MAKE
 DANGEROUS PRODUCTS?                            NO                                              YES

ALLOW COMPANIES TO IGNORE
SAFETY OR WORKERS?                                  NO                                              YES

ALLOW THE POOR TO DIE DUE TO
LACK OF MED. CARE, FOOD, SHELTER?     NO                                              YES

ALLOW FOOD COMPANIES TO SELL
TAINTED FOOD?                                               NO                                              YES

ALLOW CORPORATIONS TO
 NOT PAY TAXES?                                            YES                                              NO


This is only a partial list. I could go on, but I'm sure by now, if you have half a brain,  you get my point.  If you want safety and services, you must pay for them or have them paid for by someone else.
