美大选前欲通过经济刺激方案 佩洛西:只给48小时!

  疫情肆虐之下,美国经济受到严重冲击,数百万民众遭遇失业困境。但美国就疫情开启的新一轮经济刺激方案的谈判却已拖延了数月之久,两党就法案涉及的多项内容分歧不断,使得该法案迟迟无法最终敲定。

  当地时间18日,美国众议院议长佩洛西抛出48小时的谈判时限,称如果想在11月的总统大选前通过新的新冠疫情救济方案,特朗普政府和国会议员必须在该限期内就当前悬而未决的问题作出回答,并最终达成协议。

  佩洛西在接受美国广播公司新闻采访时强调,她制定最后期限仅与两党是否希望在选举前达成一致意见有关。

  当被问及法案是否能在11月3日大选前达成时,佩洛西表示,目前在涉及影响少数群体的检测规定的措辞等方面与特朗普政府存在分歧。尽管自己对谈判持乐观态度,但最终结果仍取决于特朗普政府。她强调,谈判的核心是控制病毒的传播。

  此前美国国会已经先后通过四轮经济刺激方案,拨款近3万亿美元,但其中有多项援助已到期。上周,特朗普政府提出一项1.8万亿美元的经济刺激计划,以重振经济。但佩洛西表示,这项计划在对贫困民众的税收减免和各州援助等方面的力度不足,她坚持要求将资金量提高到2.2万亿。

  U.S。 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday said that White House and congressional lawmakers must reach an agreement in 48 hours if they want to pass a new COVID-19 relief package before the presidential election in November。

  “The 48 only relates to if we want to get it done before the election, which we do,” Pelosi said in an interview with ABC News。

  “We‘re saying to them, we have to freeze the design on some of these things。 Are we going with it or not and what is the language? I’m optimistic because, again, we‘ve been back and forth on all of this,” she said。

  Asked about whether Americans are going to get pandemic relief before November 3 Election Day, Pelosi said that depends on the Trump administration。 “The fact is that we cannot — the heart of the matter is to stop the spread of the virus,” she said。

  为此,佩洛西与美国财政部长姆努钦数月来多次交锋,展开艰难谈判。当地时间17日晚,佩洛西和姆努钦再度进行电话会议。

  据佩洛西发言人汉米尔介绍,双方的对话持续近一小时,并在检测方面已经出现“一些令人鼓舞的消息”,但 “仍存在不少差异,必须在未来48小时内全面解决。”

  Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin have been negotiating a new COVID-19 relief package for months, with the most recent call on Saturday night resulting in “some encouraging news on testing,” according to Drew Hammill, spokesman and deputy chief of staff for the House speaker。

  “There remains an array of additional differences as we go provision by provision that must be addressed in a comprehensive manner in the next 48 hours,” Hammill tweeted on Saturday night。

  “Decisions must be made by the White House in order to demonstrate that the Administration is serious about reaching a bipartisan agreement that provides for Americans with the greatest needs during the pandemic,” Hammill said。

  在米尔肯研究所周三举行的全球会议上,姆努钦则坦言,在大选之前达成协议并执行的希望渺茫,双方在某些问题上的看法仍然相距甚远。

  此前,美国联邦储备委员会主席鲍威尔就曾发出呼吁,要求政府为受疫情影响严重的企业和家庭提供更多的财政援助,并警告称若经济无法持续增长,经济复苏的大幅放缓将引发更严重的衰退局面。

  During a virtual conference hosted by the Milken Institute on Wednesday, Mnuchin said that it would be difficult for the White House and Democrats to reach a deal on a comprehensive COVID-19 relief package before the presidential election, as the two sides were still far apart on certain issues。

  “I‘d say at this point getting something done before the election and executing on that would be difficult, just given where we are,” Mnuchin said。

  Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has recently urged policymakers to provide more fiscal relief to households and businesses hurt by the pandemic, warning a prolonged slowing economic recovery could trigger typical recessionary dynamics。
