In the pursuit of Tax, and Healthcare Reform of which my proposals are in the works, I decided this could be a comprehensive thing we could first sink our teeth into.
Quote
An Act
to send a receipt to each taxpayer on
where and how their money was spent by this government.


Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of Atlasia in Congress assembled...


SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This shall be cited as the "Taxpayer Receipt Act of 2017"

SEC. 2. ITEMIZED FEDERAL TAX RECEIPT.

I. - Itemized Federal Tax Receipt:  The Internal Revenue Service is hereby authorized and mandated to send to every taxpayer who files an individual income tax return for any taxable year an itemized Federal tax receipt showing a proportionate allocation (in money terms) of the taxpayer's total tax payment for such taxable year among major expenditure categories for the fiscal year ending in such taxable year. The Federal tax receipt shall also include 2 separate line items showing the amount of Federal debt per legal Atlasian resident at the end of such fiscal year, and the amount of additional borrowing per legal Atlasian resident by the Federal Government in such fiscal year.

II. -  Timing Of Federal Tax Receipt: A Federal tax receipt shall be made available to each taxpayer as soon as practicable upon the processing of that taxpayer’s income tax return by the Internal Revenue Service.

III. - Use Of Technologies: The Internal Revenue Service is encouraged to utilize modern technologies such as electronic mail and the Internet to minimize the cost of sending Federal tax receipts to taxpayers. The Internal Revenue Service shall establish an interactive program on its Internet Web site to allow taxpayers to generate Federal tax receipts on their own.


SEC. 3. EFFECTIVE DATE.

This act shall apply to taxable years beginning after the date of the enactment of this Act.

I would enjoy a Representative sponsoring this for me.

I'll sponsor this for you. Smiley

Me and Peebs threw this together, although it's mostly just stolen from an old bill:

Quote from: The Absentee Voting Act Of 2017
Section 1: Absentee Voting

1. All voters shall have the right to cast absentee votes after the candidacy declaration period has expired.
2. Upon the candidacy declaration deadline occurring the Secretary of Federal Elections shall publicly post that absentee voting application has opened. In the event of runoff elections, once the need for a runoff election is known, the Secretary of Federal Elections shall publicly post that absentee voting application has opened.
3. Voters wishing to apply for an absentee vote shall notify this publicly in a manner specified by the Secretary of Federal Elections.
4. The Secretary of Federal Elections shall then grant the request to absentee vote publicly, at which point the voter may proceed to vote in the Absentee Voting Booth.
5. Absentee Voters shall post their votes in the same format as if it were a regular ballot, and they shall be subject to the same rules and regulations as regular ballots.

Section 2: Disqualification from Absentee Voting

1. Should an Absentee Voter post more than 5 times anywhere on the Atlas Forum in the regular election period, their absentee vote shall be nullified and treated as non extant.
2. Any person who has their absentee vote nullified may vote again by regular ballot.
3. Any person who votes by regular ballot after voting by absentee ballot, shall have their absentee ballot treated as non-extant.
4. Persons who attempt to vote in the Absentee thread without prior notification of the Secretary of Federal Elections shall have that vote treated as non-extant.

I will have more bills in the coming days...stay tuned...

House Bill
To reform and regionalize the public healthcare system by creating a uniform public healthcare option, while devolving major regulatory authority to regions and ensuring universal access to healthcare regardless of income or age.


Be it enacted in both Houses of Congress Assembled,
Quote
This Bill is to be Entitled: The Reforming and Regionalizing Public Healthcare Act of 2017

Part I: Health Care Marketplace

Section 1: Regionalization


1. All present healthcare exchanges are abolished as of January 1, 2018.

2. Three new exchanges will be created and administered by the Health & Human Services (H&HS) Sub-Department, within the Department of Internal Affairs, with jurisdictions matching those of the three Regions. The H&HS Sub-Department will coordinate with regional officials during the setup and implementation process, and hand over administration and regulation of the new exchanges on January 1, 2018, to the respective Regional Government

3. All Federal restrictions on the access to these markets will be abolished as of January 1, 2018, including but not limited to the sale of insurance across regional lines.

4. On that date, the Regions will become the primary regulator of access onto their market and responsible for determining the nature and structure of healthcare providers allowed onto the exchange to compete, provided all terms of this act and federal law are complied with.

5. Should a region’s legislature fail to act by the above date, the H&HS Sub-Department will continue to administer the exchange until such time as the Regional Government is able to assume control.

Section 2: Coverage
1. Minimum Coverage Requirements


a. Preventative Care: Every exchange must offer at least one provider that covers preventative care, be it in the form of a private insurer, co-op or public health care benefit. Preventive care shall be defined as care related to disease prevention, early diagnosis and health maintenance, including clinical examinations, immunization, prenatal care and medically indicated screenings.

b. Each exchange will be required to have at least one provider that covers catastrophic and emergency room care.

c. AtlasCare must be available to all populations mentioned in Part III of this Act.

d. All other mandates on either citizens or healthcare providers will be the responsibility of the regions.

2. Health Care Savings Accounts

a. Individuals and Households may establish Healthcare Savings Accounts (HSA) with unlimited tax free contributions. Employers may also set up these accounts for their employees, with any matching contributions also tax free.

b. The money in these HSAs must be used for healthcare and healthcare related expenditures. No prohibitions will exist on the use of this money for any healthcare or healthcare related expense, including insurance premiums. The money will also be carried over from year to year.

c. The money in these accounts will be invested as a reasonable, sustainable rate of growth and insured in its full amount, by the Federal Government, under the FDIC.

d. All contributions by an individual to their HSA, made during the course of the year will be tax deductible.

3. Subsidized Health Care Coverage

a. Healthcare Insurance will be subsidized in accordance with a sliding scale subsidy based on age and income in relation to a maximum of $12,000 annually, indexed to Health care inflation.

b. The formula is as follows: y = 1 - (x - f(t))/2

where x is the multiple of $12,000 that their annual salary amounts to and f(t) is the formula for determining the max subsidy cutoff as a function of age t.

c. The formula will be applied towards the premiums, co-pays and deductibles of  qualifying providers, as determined by those who comply with all provisions of Federal and applying regional regulations, on the exchanges, as established in Section 1.

d. Anyone who doesn’t have a qualifying insurance program for any period of time, will have the subsidy distributed to a Health Savings Account, as established in Section 2, Part 1, subject to further regulation by the regions.

e. The subsidy will be paid for using the existing revenues for the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid and Medicare. The Medicare Payroll Tax will be renamed the Health Care Payroll Tax and increased from 1.45% to 2.50% on employees and employers, for a total of 5%.  

f. The subsidy shall be administered with the H&HS Sub-Department by the newly created Healthcare Subsidy Office (HSO).

4. Prescription Drug Out-of-Pocket Monthly Cap

a. Each family or individual who legally resides in the Republic of Atlasia shall receive a tax credit for full compensation of any monthly amount for which prescription drugs exceeded $250 in out-of-pocket costs.

b. These tax credits will be paid for using the existing revenues for the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid, and Medicare.

Part II: AtlasCare

Section 1: Relationship with the Exchanges

1. AtlasCare shall be a federally administered public health insurance option, operated by the newly created AtlasCare Office (ACO) within sub-department of H&HS, within the Department of Internal Affairs.

2. AtlasCare shall be automatically provided in all of the Regional Exchanges unless a region opts out of AtlasCare for their Exchange, in which case the mandates in Part I, Section 2.1, shall apply in full to ensure that care remains available, as well as an option for subsidy recipients. AtlasCare will also be available in all regions as an option for active duty military, veteran healthcare and senior healthcare, and the other special groups as detailed in Part III, regardless of a regional opt-out.

3. If at any point a region, which had previously opted out of AtlasCare, fails to provide the regulated options as established in Part 1, Section 2.1, all citizens will be eligible to enroll in AtlasCare until such time as compliance may be obtained.

4. The AtlasCare administration will be tasked with acquiring the most extensive provider network possible while maintaining high quality standards and remaining cost competitive on the Regional Healthcare Exchanges. It may establish quality standards to ensure the protection of its insured populations.  The AtlasCare administration is authorized to negotiate with all medical suppliers and providers to secure lower prices, including but not limited to prescription drug companies.

Section 2: Components of AtlasCare
1. Eligibility and Benefits


a. All Atlasian citizens are eligible for coverage under AtlasCare, entitling them to public, quality standard of care.

Part III: Transition Periods and Coverage for Special Populations

Section 1: Transition for Medicare and Medicaid[/b]

1. Recipients of Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program will be transitioned over in an orderly fashion, administered by the H&HS Sub-Department, into AtlasCare program, with their premiums, co-pays and deductibles subsidized 100%, under the premium subsidy established and paid for in Part 1, Section 2.3. All those who were eligible for the expansion of these programs under the ACA, will be eligible for this provision regardless of whether the state or Region took the voluntary expansions or not.

2. Medicare Recipients will be transitioned over in an orderly fashion, administered by the H&HS Sub-Department to the equivalent parts of Atlascare, from the equivalent parts of Medicare that they are presently enrolled.

3. All Federal government employees will be transitioned to AtlasCare by January 1, 2018, including members of Congress and the President. With the present healthcare programs for said people abolished under the oversight of the Department of Internal Affairs.

4. The Department of Internal Affairs will be responsible for directing, supervising and effecting this transition by the date of January 1, 2018. The Department shall work with its subordinates and regional authorities to ensure coordination and ensure that there are no lapses in services for the recipients of Medicare, Medicaid and similar programs.

5. Once the transition has been completed, the Department of Internal Affairs, shall direct for the elimination of unnecessary administrations, offices, and sub departments that are no longer required subsequent to this transition.

Section 2: Coverage for Special Populations

1. All active duty military personnel shall be eligible for full coverage under AtlasCare, fully paid for by the Defense Health Agency, of the Sub-Department of Defense, within the Department of State, with no premiums, co-pays or deductibles.

2. All Veterans shall be eligible for full coverage under AtlasCare, with no co-pays or deductibles, with subsidies for premiums as described in Part 1, Section 3 of this Act.  Cost normally associated with co-pays and deductibles shall be covered by the government through the Veterans Benefits Administration.
  
3. A “veteran” is defined for the purpose of this section as any person who served on active duty in the armed forces of Atlasia and received an honorable or general discharge.

4. Upon the completion of this transition of Veterans and Activity Duty Military to the Atlas Care program, with AtlasCare expenses covered by the VBA and Defense Health Administration, the Department of State shall subsequently review and direct the elimination of unnecessary administrations, offices and sub-departments that are no longer required subsequent to the transition.

Section 3: Pre-existing Conditions and High Risk Populations

1. A Comprehensive Insurance Equality Pool (CIEP) shall be established within AtlasCare so that those with pre-existing conditions can receive affordable care without discrimination.  Those with pre-existing conditions or other factors such as age or gender which may increase risk to health or risk of health related cost shall be covered under AtlasCare at the same cost to the consumer as those without these conditions.

2. The CIEP shall be subsidized out of funds derived from the same revenue provided for the health subsidy in Part I, Section 2.3, clause e, to the extent necessary to achieve cost parity to the consumer.

3. The CIEP shall have open enrollment periods determined by the AtlasCare Health Directorate.  Those with changes in condition or subject to increased premium cost at their current insurance provider may enroll in the high risk pool program through special enrollment so long as they have maintained coverage through AtlasCare or another insurer prior to such change in condition.

4. A Risk Adjustment Program will be established to involve private providers with annual net income greater than $50 million. Plans with lower actuarial risk will make payments to plans with higher actuarial risk to adjust for variation in distribution of high risk patients. This program will be administered by the Health Resources & Services Administration.

House Bill/Resolution
Harvey Aid Relief Act
To fund the reconstruction of homes, businesses, and government property damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Harvey.
Be it enacted in Both Houses of Congress Assembled,
Section 1-Title
1. The long title of this Act shall be known as the "Hurricane Harvey Aid Relief Allocations and Regional Accountability Act." It may be cited as the "Harvey Aid Relief Act", "HARA" or "HHARARAA."

Section 2-Initial Allocation of Funds
1. As the total value of uninsured damages is expected to reach $50 billion, the National Treasury shall immediately allocate $25 billion (under the recommendation and expectation that the Southern Regional Government should fund the other $25 billion from its own Treasury) to the Department of Internal Affairs.

Section 3-Conduction of Operations
1. The Department of Internal Affairs shall claim the responsibility to execute the operations listed below.
2. There shall be a deployment of national resources to conduct rescue operations of people trapped in affected areas, and to provide food and shelter to them until they can safely return to their homes.
3. There will also be funds given to victims whose homes or businesses have been destroyed once the damages to their properties are assessed by the state of Florida.
4. An amount of money determined by the SoIA will be spent on fixing and rebuilding destroyed Federal Government owned property.

Section 4-Timetable
1. The rescue and immediate aid relief as listed in Section 3-2 shall commence immediately upon the signing of this bill.
2. The distribution of funds shall commence as listed in Sections 3-3 and 3-4.

Section 5-Recommended Funding Source Portions Clause
1. Regarding Hurricane Harvey and all future natural disasters, the official "recommended portions" that the Federal Government and Regional Governments (of the affected region) are to pay would be 50% from the Federal Government and 50% for that affected Regional Government.

Section 6-Southern Region Accountability Clause
1. If the Southern Government fails to reach an agreement by October 1, 2017 to fund its recommended share as mentioned in Section 2-1, then the Federal Treasury will send an additional $25 billion to the Department of Internal Affairs to fund additional relief as listed in Section 3 under the premise that the Federal Government of Atlasia is not mandated to give future funds to the Southern Region again for aid in future disasters as long as it has an adequate budget surplus to cover its recommended portion (as listed in Section 5) of the cost of damages.

Storm Relief Fund Act:

1. This act shall give twenty billion dollars to the future relief of hurricanes and tornadoes.
2. 16 billion dollars will automatically be given to a Hurricane Relief fund, which will be spent when a hurricane hits or a hurricane emergency happens.
3. 4 billion dollars will be automatically given to a tornado relief fund, and it will be spent over time to help tornado relief.

(Hurricane Emergency's definition is when a Hurricane hits a region of Atlasia and immediate help is needed.)

(This bill is not for the Hurricane Harvey tragedy it's for future hurricanes after they hit. I encourage LouisvilleThunder's bill for that)

Enceladus Mission Probe Funding:

1. This act shall give 6 billion dollars over the course of 10 years to fund a mission to Saturn's moon, Enceladus.
2. This Act is going to give four billion dollars in order to fund a spacecraft needed to travel the distance and send back reliable information back. It will "sniff" the plumes and see what comes out of them, to potentially detect life.
3. One billion dollars of this funding shall be used for the creation of a cheap, efficient drill, that can drill into the moon's surface.
4. Another one billion dollars shall be used to carry a small submersible drone device that will go under the ocean of Enceladus and send back images and video back to Earth for scientists to study.



About Enceladus:

Enceladus is one of Saturn's moons. The Cassini spacecraft have observed visible geysers of salt water erupting from its surface, and it's warm salt water. The amount of water is suspected to be the size of the Pacific Ocean. It likely has underwater hydrothermal vents, and is considered one of the most likely places in the Solar System to have life. We should explore this moon more, and 5 billion dollars over the course of ten years to potentially uncover one of man's greatest secrets sounds amazing.
