More Stimulus Money Is On The Way


Senate Republicans presented an outline for another stimulus package to help businesses, schools, health care facilities and everyday Americans amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 


The fourth stimulus package proposed by the Congress calls for more forgiveness loans for small business and federal unemployment insurance at $200 per week instead of $600 per week. Money to help schools reopen, personal protection gear for healthcare workers and a moratorium on outstanding evictions among other types of aid. A second round of stimulus checks would put $1,200 into the hands of more than 150 million Americans.


We are so glad the fourth stimulus bill is working in Congress for those people and businesses that need it the most. Not many countries in the world can do something like this, but this kind of economic aid is not the final resolution. 


Up until this date there are sixteen million, four hundred thousand confirmed cases in the world of the coronavirus and six hundred and fifty thousand people have lost their lives. In America alone, we have had one hundred and fifty thousand deaths. This is more than double what we had originally estimated. 


After almost five months now, we think the federal government needs to take more dramatic measures to coordinate with local governments and let the medical professionals take over the stage. They are the ones who can make the right decisions -- not the politicians. 


President Trump will be in west Texas today to meet with his supporters. We really want him to visit the U.S.-Mexico border towns to witness how the local poor people are suffering now. 





    及時雨救助災民


美國國會參眾兩院目前正在為第四波聯邦紓困方案進行最後之協商, 其中包括對商業學校、 醫療及通老百姓在疫情受災之援助。


紓困案中將會給予小商業無償薪水貨款聯邦失業保險金每週從六百元降為二百元, 對低收入人士每人一千二百元現金支票,將有一億五千萬人受惠。


我們對政府給予疫情受災人士之及時雨感到十分欣慰但是這些究竟不是解決之道。世界上有哪些國家能像美國一樣不斷發放現金及紓困貸款 只有我們生活在此的民眾有此福份。


截至目前為止全球已經有一千六百四十萬人確疹六十五萬四千人死亡而美國已有四百二十萬人確診近十五萬人死亡和政府當初預估差二倍之多。


聯邦政府已經浪費了太多時間我們呼籲把疫情管控工作快交還給醫療專家, 福其博士再度提出警告, 如果我們再無法有效控制疫情方法後果將更不堪設想。


總統今天將飛抵西德州石油城為他募款我們更希望他到美墨邊境探望生活在貧窮線下的國民。
