62nd US Congressional Report: Week Three

Day 1,919, 00:01 by eUSA Congress


Greetings,

Today’s Congressional report was prepared by Congressmen John Largo and Duncan Crowe and is followed by a brief statement from Immigration Enforcement Director Dr Luis Sentieiro. Please be sure to subscribe and watch for additional news from Congress.

One topic that will be addressed in the report below I would like to draw your attention to, concerns about budget discussion. I recognize our military branches have all worked tirelessly to reduce costs and work towards maximum efficiency and that deployment expenses have been identified as the greatest burden borne by our mobile units. While we continue to work together with the Executive, the Secretary of Defense, and concerned Commanders to find an agreeable solution, there is something we all can do. If you are a member of one of the branches of USAF, ensure you are not moving more than necessary. Deploy and stay put until orders dictate otherwise. If you are not currently active in a mobile unit and have the resources, please donate gold or currency to help support our troops. Donations earmarked for any USAF Mobile troops may be sent to Directors of Congressional Budget Office, Publius or Evry or, if you prefer to specify your donation by Unit, sent directly to the Branch Commanders.





Hello and welcome fellow Americans,

The 62nd USA Congress has just concluded the third week of its term!

Accordingly, to increase transparency and better your opinion of the US government, we want to inform you of what your representatives are discussing, proposing, and ratifying in The Legislative Branch during our third week.

The comments from Speaker's Word for Week 2 gave Congress relevant questions and feedback.

We strongly encourage everyone to comment with questions, positive feedback or constructive criticism, on this week's article, and let us know how you think we are doing as a Congressional body, and if there are any issues you want to see addressed or topics considered in the final week of our term, week 4. Remember, this is the 2nd to last Speaker's word, so if you're really itching to see US Congress discuss something you want, comment and let us know!

Here are questions and answers from the Speaker's Word for Week 2.

Question: "Which nation was denied an MPP and why?"

Answer - Albania. We continue to be friends, bros and allies of Albania, but a MPP with them would not be able to sustain itself due to conflicting MPPs within our new alliance, Circle of Trust.

Comment: “Funny how many congressmen felt the need to vote on Bacon instead of using that time to come to an agreement on budget.”

Answer #2 - US Congress created and passed this month’s budget in the first week. Congress continues to discuss alternate revenue sources and more efficient ways to spend our nation’s income, as budget decline and deficit is always relevant to our nation's safety.

Now, time to discuss this week! Please remember to leave feedback in the comments below.

For the third week of our term, we signed-in to establish quorum. Remember, quorum is the minimum amount of votes that must be cast for a Congressional bill to be considered legitimate law for American citizens. This week's quorum was set at 12 (down from 13 the previous week), as can be seen HERE.

A discussion on the Congressional Orientation threads, continued from last week, turned into two complementary votes One to add all the pertinent info to a sticky and One to trash the remaining sub-board. Both votes were approved and met the quorum requirements.

There was another MPP debate (Mutual Protection Pact) this week due to a miscommunication between the Executive and Legislative branches. The President (Executive) is in charge of foreign policy and negotiations with other nations, while Congress (Legislative) approves all MPPs and alliances. This miscommunication has led to separate discussions on establishing a foreign affairs committee and a discussion on codifying the foreign affairs reporting process. In the meantime, communication is improved through Secretary of State posts on the MPP thread and separate topics for MPP votes in question.

The discussions are ongoing from last week for identifying alternate revenue streams for the government as well as identifying the most efficient way to spend our current revenue. This will continue to be a "hot" topic in Congress.

So, that’s what your Congress did in its third week. Now, so that we may improve, please leave a comment with what you, the American citizenry, want us to discuss and work to ratify.

Thanks for reading!

Remember, we only seek to satisfy you,and will take all considerations seriously.



Immigration Enforcement Service

We are the gatekeepers of USA, we filter who comes with friendly intent to join our nation from who comes to harm us. We work in cooperation with many agencies and Departments such as Department of State, Homeland Security and CIA. We blacklist bribers, PTOers and outlawed people who just come in to violate the US Constitution. The IES Director is appointed by the US Congress and it is his responsibility and judgement to decide with his agents whether someone enters the USA or not. Currently the IES has 4 Agents and counts with most of the congress to provide citizenship to the immigrants who pass the security clearance.

We are here to keep America safe despite the fact AFA does everything to violate this process and bring PTOers and unapproved Serbs into our borders.

I hope this was informative,

Best regards,

Dr Luis Sentieiro
IES Director



Gratuitous Public Service Announcement



keep smiling,
rainy sunday

Speaker, 62nd US Congress

I expected more from our eAmerican legislature after the recent controversy of eAustralia...

3 weeks ago they were 'non-allies' and now we aide eNZ via MPP yet our stalwart Ally eAlbania is permitted to fall by the wayside.

Perhaps the problem lies within a quorum of 12... When at least 30 of the 50 should be on deck daily out of sheer "unity"...

Also, I have an idea, why not raise import taxes to try and thin the flood of products we have? Increasing prices and hopefully wages and profitability? Helping American companies (who would'nt pay the tax)

It would bring in revenue too.

Tyrannocopters

Nevermind, Rainy Sunday has shown me the truth, and the truth is, it will not work.

Tiamati
Tiamati Day 1,919, 02:26

Import taxes are less effective than embargoes... Though I am curious what truth was revealed to you that somehow abates your concerns regarding our domestic eUS marketplace in order to protect our economy...

While its true; nothing can prevent the eventual halt of the eEconomy much can be done to both stem the tide and ride the wave.

Nothing about my concerns has been abated... the economy still sucks, and I know it pretty hard.

Care to share any tips to help a poor citizen succeed in this economy Tiamati?

Avoid the Seven Social Sins as defined by Ghandi; more specifics below:

Strength > Rank
Cash > Stuff > Gold
Weapons used should be q6 until 20k str
Be self sufficient as best as you are able; make WRM for sale and sell to buy q3 food and weapons.
Stockpile energy bars & bazookas as unassembled parts.
Be mindful of Division XP crossovers; unload and gain BH before the transition.
Free training and 0.19 strength centers are most important; use daily and upgrade during sale.

I am new here, but it seems to me that if the government is asking for donations from it's citizens they are doing something wrong.

Thedillpickl
Thedillpickl Day 1,920, 23:20

Like mentioned above, the econ sucks. This is not due to govt., company manager or employee. The admin of the game decided months ago to make the game "fair". This means that the companies are cheap enough that anyone can buy some. It also means that anything that might require strategy or forethought have been removed. The topper is that company owners can Work as Managers (WaM) without even needing workers.

To boil it down, overproduction is rampant. The admins employed "buy bots" initially to control the overproduction. This worked well but "smart" people soon learned how to work the buy bots to get rich. Since this wasn't "fair" the bots were removed. Then Rockets were introduced. They were meant to use up a lot of weapons. It sort of worked but not well enough. Finally admin just gave up and about 3 or 4 months ago the econ settled into the state it is now.

The reason that the govt. is asking for donations is that tax revenue is not even 10% of what it was a few months ago and they cannot supply the MU's that they previously lavished with $$$. Now the whiners are crying that their military units are being denied some type of right to get free stuff just because they exist. Meanwhile my MU stumbles along supplying itself as it always has, accepting no outside funding. (Of course gifts are welcome. )

Long winded but I hope this helps explain the situation.

Good overview of the history; its too bad the exec seems to be sticking with the failed approach of keeping most of us in the dark so their voodoo economics can remain in the shadows lining their pockets with taxpayer money while the legitimate eUS Armed Forces are pulling out all the bake-sale signs to help fund their efforts.

Tl;dr?

Spoiled toddlers wanted iPads when times were good and refuse to share them while the polite children are taping crayons together to draw on cardboard. At this stage the eGov't should publish how many etch-a-sketch's we can afford to keep everyone happy while we mine more graphite.
