社評 0825 總統下令減免學生貸款
這項宣佈將使二千萬人受益 ，拜登總统表示這將使許家庭走出経濟上之困境， 他並且把所有學生貸款還款期全部延長到明年元月一日支付。
我們非常感謝拜登總統之德政， 但是有人憂心這項免除行動會為日前嚴重的通貨膨脹雪上加霜， 全國政府之預算赤字更加增大， 預計支出三千億美元。
拜登總統為了實現他競選時之諾言出了個大手筆， 當然也會有近二千萬人受惠， 這些人也可能是投給民主黨之選民。
我們也要向政府建言 ，一個國家之收支預算有如一個家庭 ，必須要符合量入為出之原則， 如果是入不敷出， 支字繼續擴大是非全民之福。
三個月前發生在德州尤瓦利小學之屠殺命案， 造成十九名學童及二位老師被害事件，震驚了全球， 是美國歷史上最殘忍的校園事件之一。
尤瓦利學區委員會於週三晚間開會決定把學區警長開除， 警長阿利敦多並且出席會議，但由他的律師提交了十七頁的報告， 但是在他的報告到達委員會前， 學區委員已経決定要他離職。
我們支持學區開除警長之決議， 基本上他是應該負起道義和實際之責任， 如果當天他們能即時趕到立即救援就不可能造成二十一人命之傷亡， 痛定思痛，我們已經不不能再犯同樣錯誤了。
The Government Forgives Student Loans
President Biden announced his plan to cancel up to $20,000 of student debt for those who received Pell grants.
The president’s plan includes $10,000 in loan forgiveness for borrowers who earn less than $125,000 annually and who did not receive Pell grants.
The plan also extends the pause on federal student loan payments until December 31 and allows undergraduate debt holders to cap their debt and repay at 5% of their monthly income.
The program will include twenty million people and the president said those people can now start getting on with their lives.
Cancelling the student loan debts will cost the government about $300 billion.
President Biden made a big deal to fulfill his campaign promise. These people also will be voters for the Democratic party later on at election time.
We are also very worried about the inflation and the overspending that will bring even more debt to our country.
The School District Police Chief Has Been Fired
The Uvalde school board voted unanimously Wednesday to terminate the contract of Police Chief Pete Arredondo three months after the teenage gunman took the lives of 19 students and two teachers.
The board made the decision in a closed-door meeting. The police chief didn’t attend, but his attorney argued that a letter from the district suspending him without pay does not count as an official “complaint” as required by law to consider termination.
Arredondo has come under scrutiny over the police response to the May 24 massacre.
The attacker remained in two classrooms for more than one hour before the police entered the room and killed him.
We support the school district’s decision to fire the chief of police. Basically, he had the legal
and professional responsibility to end the massacre tragedy.
We all need to learn from this terrible and very sad tragedy. We just can no longer make this same mistake again.
