1676  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Job Guarantee Act of 2014 (Debating) on: May 26, 2014, 05:38:25 pm
This is a bill to once and for all end unemployment in Atlasia. It guarantees everyone the right to a job, and gives Regional governments discretion in how they spend the money accorded to them to make full employment a reality.

Except for the 3%, of course.

He did say full employment.

Where does it say that in the bill (not arguing we should change it, of course, full employment might be a bit of a tricky situation)?

A "job guarantee" would imply that.

I still don't see any unemployment number but the 3% figure in the bill. I could create, say, a Bureau of Fiscal Responsibility, stock it with my close friends, and steal all the money (which I 110% did not do in the Northeast I swear).

You're right, that's probably a pretty good comparison to what's going on in this bill.

I do like to think I'm friends with the poor and downtrodden.

It's hard to get an education in Brazil because they don't care about it as much as they care about other things.

That's not necessarily what it means.

I'm pretty sure that's exactly what it means.

Yeah, pretty sure we're gonna see a completely purple map Wink

I'm honestly surprised there have been no statements of support for the Bull-Moosers. Perhaps Debs has been more legitimized by being in a major party?

I'd be shocked if Theodore Roosevelt doesn't get some votes, at the least.  I thought he tends to get lionized on the forum.

Hm. Perhaps there's a silent majority out there or something.

Do you think we could cut out all the dilly-dallying and just enact a federal version of the IDS/NE plans right here, right now, in this room, no holds barred? Keeping most of section 1 and all of section 2, of course.

What is the $5 billion we are giving to the regions for? We need to make sure that we specify it must be used on housing projects.

And don't be stubborn over section 1 and 2, or this bill won't even become law. I want to expand housing projects, but not at the expense of public safety and health. We can easily appropriate money to the regions to be used for housing projects and nothing else to the regions.

Don't worry, Mr. President, everything's fine. By "sections 1 and 2" I meant of the entire bill (i.e. cars and stuff).

And Maxwell, I'd rather have all the homeless housed than have strong regions, but I suppose we'll have to agree to disagree.

Unless I am mistaken that would require a subsequent amendment, the text clearly applies only to cclauses 1 and 2. Though I might be mistaken as what you are saying there.

Oh, it would be an amendment to this bill. I meant we'd keep the whole thing except for the part that Duke hates and then tack on an IDS/NE-style housing program.

Fun fact guys I just offered an amendment so you're OK.

     Thanks, Mr. Senator. You should find a generous donation to your re-election campaign forthcoming. Wink

Aw, thanks, Mr. Former Emperor, sir. Although I must wonder why the donation is in the form of a naked Joseph Gordon-Levitt with his mouth taped shut and eyes full of fear?

     I had intended that one for Putin. It looks like there was an unfortunate mixup in my gifting department.

Well, then, I'll get to sending Mr. Putin Mr. Gordon-Levitt right away.

Other regions should come up with their own solutions to the Housing Problem, because otherwise whats the point of having regional governments?

Oh, so the homeless people of the Midwest, Mideast, and Pacific should be left out in the cold because of muh regions?

3. Alexander Hamilton (Federalist-New York) March 4th, 1801-April 12th, 1802
Vacant: April 12th, 1802-March 4th, 1805

Oh yeah remember when the VP was literally murdered? Now we can't have Thomas Marshall talk about how someone shooting him would be the first time anyone ever tried to shoot the Vice President.

But I thought Cathcon said that Hamilton resigned in frustration.

Did he? I'll go back and check.

Edit: You're 100% right, my mistake.
