Field trip to congress

Field Trip to Congress affiliation I searched two topics; healthcare and trade. I found more than twenty nine bills for the year 2015-2016. Under the healthcare topic, I focused on the Veterans Healthcare Act. The act requires the controller general to review the budget requests for the department of Veterans Affairs’ medical services, compliance, medical support and medical facilities accounts contained in the president’s budget request for that fiscal year.
The other bill is Fighting Hunger Incentive Act of 2015. The purpose of the bill was the amendment of the Internal Revenue. The changes made were to make permanent the tax deduction for charitable contributions of food inventory. Moreover, the bill imposed an increase from 10% to 15% of taxpayer aggregate net income (Congress. gov, 2015).
Senator Roy Blunt introduced the Help Efficient Accessible, Low-cost, and Healthcare (HEALTH) Act that would reduce the cost of health care by discouraging junk lawsuits. The bill could save up to 54 billion dollars over ten years. He supported the legislation to repeal the costly “ 1099” mandate created by Obama care.
Senator Claire McCaskill is in the fore front in the fight for changes in the military sexual assault policies. The bill would create room for victims of sexual assault to weigh in on whether the prosecution of cases should be done in a civilian court instead of following the military justice system.
U. S Rep Blaine Luetkemeyer is currently working on the DHS Funding Bill. He is doing this together with other Missouri colleagues. He is calling on Senator Claire McCaskill to reconsider her position of blocking a debate on legislation to support the Department of Homeland Security by funding it fully. U. S Reps. Sam Graves, Vicky Hartzier, Ann Wagner, and Jason Smith joined Luetkemeyer in his quest (House. gov, 2015).
