Constitution of Hospitals & Asylums Non-Governmental Economy (CHANGE)

 

Hospitals & Asylums (HA) was created in 2000.  HA dates to the Naval Hospital Act of Feb. 26, 1811, that was the work of Paul Hamilton secretary of the Navy under President James Madison.  The HA acronym was coined by Alexander Augustus the African American surgeon who founded Freedmen’s Hospital & Asylum (HA) for President Abraham Lincoln, who also created the Columbia Institution for the Deaf and populated Arlington National Cemetery.  The codification of Title 24 of the United States Code was the work of Hon. Edward C. Little who died on June 24, 1924.  Economic law demands that we work together.  Both the state and the private sector play an important role.  Everyone has the fundamental right to be free of hunger, poverty and disease.  It is the equal right of men and women to the enjoyment of all the economic, social and cultural rights; to read and write. In all our dealings we must be ethical.  To the government ethics is a matter of accounting for income, expenditure and association.  To the professional ethics is a matter of profiting with the least risk of harm to anyone. Everyone has a professional responsibility to provide adequately for the needs of those unable to pay.  The golden rule provides that one must treat others as one wishes to be treated. Therefore non-violence and the non-use of force are fundamental to all dealings with all people and we must also reject all forms of hatred, bigotry, discrimination, prejudice, violence, crime and disease.  It is our duty to defend the life and liberty of all people and treat everyone fairly.  Believing that the codification, adjudication and progressive change of HA statute will promote the maintenance of international peace and security, the development of healthy and friendly relations and the achievement of co-operation among all people. Scholars should surpass 100 crunches, 100 push-ups and 10km run daily and run a marathon on the Sabbath.  Vote to end poverty by 2020.

Since its foundation in 1775 the US military has suffered nearly 1.3 million casualties in 13 wars. There are more than 27 million US veterans. FY17 there were estimated to be a total of 1.4 million active duty US soldiers, another 1.28 million Ready and Stand-by Reserves and 669,000 Civilian Employees, for a total of 3.35 million employees including 2.68 million soldiers. FY 17 Defense total budget request of $582.7 billion seems adequate to calculate 2.5% annual growth in total military spending to $597.3 billion FY 18 instead of either a 3.1% reduction or 8.8% increase. The President must settle for 2.5% non-welfare administrative spending growth to $597.3 billion FY18, $612.2 billion FY19, $627.5 billion FY20. Total FY 17 spending reported by the three military departments - Air Force $168.9 billion, Army $148 billion and the Navy and Marine Corp $164.9 billion = $477.4 billion Military Department spending and $597.3 billion in federal revenues FY17, a $120 billion military surplus. To comply with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) the US nuclear arsenal was reduced from 10,000 warheads, to no more than 1,700 to 2,200 nuclear warheads by 2012 and plans to ultimately eliminate them. To judge use of force, biological experimentation like tight shoes, and environmental modification the Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques of 1977 and Law of the Sea of 1982 must be upheld. Subsidies for slash and burn forest labor and logging need to be abolished.

Non-emergency rescue use of the new Coast Guard ice-breaker must be prohibited to protect the polar ice from hydrocarbon oceanic warming pumps and pollution under the Polar Code of January 1, 2017. Hostile oceanic warming pumps cause drought and intensify hurricanes and natural weather oscillations, they have been extinguished by the Styrene Information and Research Center (SIRC) and cabled out with magnet by Dutch Navy for the benefit of news meteorology in 2005. Oceanic cooling pumps can prevent hurricanes by reducing water temperature below 80ľ F US under Patent No. (2002) 0008155 and US Patent No. (2008) 0175728 A1. The only peaceful purpose of oceanic heating pumps is to generate winds blowing in the direction of oceanic cooling pumps patented in 2012 by AS Trust & Holdings US Patent R441A by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, closer to the coast, to make clouds to be seeded by Rainmaking US Patent No. (1966) 3,429,507 that can cause flooding.

An estimated 100,000 nonviolent marijuana offenders may be safely released from federal prison. Recidivism, re-incarceration within 3 years of release from prison, is reduced from 66% to 50% with vocational certificates, to 35% with Associate degree to 0% in those who earned a post-conviction Bachelor degree.  Since 2013 the number of detainees nationwide has gone down slightly. The U.S. Sentencing Commission must be abolished under Blakely v. Washington (2004) and the name of the Court of International Trade of the United States (COITUS) needs to be changed to Customs Court (CC).  Pardons mock Rod Blagojevich, Chelsea Manning, a former UN General Assembly President and Chinese billionaire. Whether “blue ribbon” or “cross-section” the compulsory summons of jurists is involuntary servitude and an All-Volunteer Jury needs Federal Work-Study. Since legal fees were rejected under the Fair Credit Reporting Act in 2009 the law firm has become obsolete. Law school graduate unemployment is higher than 60%. Federal judges and justices need term limits. The bar exam must be lowered to Bachelors of Law for a civil law system to safely reduce the penal population to less than the 250 detainees per 100,000 residents with a free Bachelor's degree program for felons who don't pay student loans. More than 300 economists and 600 churches have asked the White House to legalize marijuana and save $12.5 billion annually by abolishing all federal police finance - the FBI, ATF, DEA, OJP Community Policing, State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance, ONDCP, U.S. Marshall's Inter-Agency Drugs and Crime Task Force whereas enforcement of malum prohibitum is malum in se. The federal Judiciary FY 2017 budget request to Congress, sought $7.0 billion in discretionary appropriations, a 3.2 percent increase above fiscal year 2016 funding.  The DOJ FY 2017 Budget reports $29.0 billion in discretionary budget authority and $10.2 billion in mandatory budget authority in FY 2017, however ‘scorekeeping credits’ are not a generally accepted accounting principle (gaap) and combined discretionary and $300 mandatory federal spending are calculated to be $31.5 billion FY 2016 with a total congressional budget authority of $34.4 billion FY 2016. OMB estimates are higher yet, at $39.1 billion FY 2016. If prohibition were abolished Justice Department spending would go down to $17.0 billion FY 2017, -46.6% and congressional budget authority would be $19.5 billion -43.4%. The US Constitution might be annotated so (a) Old debts would be repealed from the first clause of Art. VI and the section renumbered so that the supremacy clause would be number one and oath of office, number two. (b) Replace the Second amendment with a balanced budget amendment as redacted  'Section 1 Total outlays for any fiscal year shall not exceed total receipts for that fiscal year. Section 2 Prior to each fiscal year, the President shall transmit to the Congress a proposed budget for the United States Government for that fiscal year.

HHS Budget-in-brief FY 2016-17 totals are inaccurate in regards to the exact amount of agency spending and must be redone in the same style of receiving reports from the departments. The CMS Justification of Estimates for Appropriations Committees are useless. The 2014 Report of the Board of Trustees of the Federal Hospital Insurance and Supplemental Medical Insurance Trust Funds is more or less accurate, but requires a little subtraction to arrive at a fairly accurate corroboration of the total federal outlays in FY 2014. The 2015 report is tardy. It turns out the 2014 report cannot be held harmless for the most extortionate 50% Part B premium inflation 2015-16 ever, in a long history of cruel and unusual inflation, justified by high Ultimate Assumptions about inflation, that must be corrected for a stable 2.5% health annuity, the 2015 report is tardy - 2.5% spending growth estimates from FY 2014 for Medicare programs is fair baseline for HHS Medicare spending estimates. Medicaid estimates for 2014 are complicated by a 15.9% increase in enrollment and 15.3% reduction in beneficiaries settled by 0.5% + 2.5% health annuity = 3% growth 2014, 2.5% every year thereafter. Health, United States, 2015 broke the 17.4% of GDP deflator (2009-2013) while attempting to create a working account balance to capitalize upon a downward revision in Investment, that is justified on the basis of reinvestment of that year's health expenditures, and in Public health, that absurdly cites federal public health spending nearly exactly although being so fundamental to government public health is probably equally financed by both state and local governments. The national health expenditure totals are useless. By not deflating the 2013 private health insurance estimates, the Actuary is accounting for investment securities other than net health insurance premiums, and the 17.3% of GDP 2009-2013 and 17.5% of GDP 2014 deflator estimate is actually an inflator in regards to the private health insurance estimates. Suicide rates have increased nearly as much as fatal opiate overdose deaths since 1999.

 

Book 10 Armed Forces Retirement Home (AFRH)  

 

To supplement the transfer of Chapter 1 Navy Hospitals, Army and Navy Hospitals, and Hospital Relief for Seamen and Other §1-40 to Chapter 10 Armed Forces Retirement Home §400-435.  The Armed Forces Retirement Home (AFRH) houses approximately 1,600 veterans at the U.S. Soldiers’ and Airmen’s Home (USSAH in Washington D.C. and the U.S. Naval Home (USNH) in Gulfport, Mississippi.  At an average age of 76, the largest percentage of residents, 80% are WWII veterans, 30% in Korea and 10% in Vietnam.  The average length of stay is 10.6 years.  The Naval Home was established in the Naval Hospitals Act of Feb. 26, 1811 by Paul Hamilton of South Carolina, secretary of the Navy, under President James Madison.  The charter was to provide a permanent asylum for old and disabled naval officers, seamen and Marines.  The Naval Home was however not officially opened until 1834 after James Fillebrown, Secretary of Commissioners of Navy Hospitals appealed his embezzlement conviction to the Supreme Court in 1833, it was known as the Naval Asylum until the name was changed to the Naval Home in 1880.  The Soldier’s Home was established in 1851, as an asylum for old and disabled veterans.  It was at the Soldier’s Home that President Abraham Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation.  The Soldiers’ Home began admitting airmen in 1917 and officially changed its name to Soldiers’ and Airmen’s Home in 1972.  The Naval Home was initially funded by contributions from the active force. This contribution was augmented by all fines imposed upon persons of the Navy and was the principal source of monies for the Naval Hospital Fund/Pension Fund. The Pension Fund also received all money accruing from the sale of prizes of war. For nearly 100 years these monies funded the Naval Home.  In 1934, the Pension Fund was abolished by Congress and the proceeds were deposited into the U.S. Treasury. From 1935 until 1991, the Naval Home was funded by Navy appropriations. Today, it is funded by monthly withholding from active duty troops, fines and forfeitures, interest off the Trust Fund and resident fees, to reduce the deficit and debt by abolishing the Other Defense – Civil Programs and Allowances rows from OMB Table 4.1 Outlays by Agency and equivalent amount of undistributed offsetting receipts before 2009.
