社评 0808 参院通过气候变迁及医疗法案
此法案仍需要民主党占微弱多数的眾议院在週五通过 ，这是该党一次险胜， 曾经几次谈判破裂 ，佔有五十席的共和党全数反对。
老实说， 参院通过此法案， 尤其是主张新能源对盛產石油的德州是项重大之打击， 但是我们也要从此次能源短缺及油价高居不下之经验中吸取教训。
民主党之理念是在於救助贫苦及弱势族群， 因而政府需要扩大支出 ，但是政府在入不敷出之财政窘境下 ，要如何解决通货膨胀之问题呢？！
民主党面对十一月中旬之期中选面对许多挑战 ，包括拜登总统之低落民调， 此法案之通过可能使许多人有感， 但是现存之许多问题仍然存在。
Senate Passes Landmark Climate Change And Healthcare Bill
If the U.S. House soon passes the Senate’s Climate Change and Healthcare Bill, it will help the Democratic Party and President Biden’s midterm election prospects.
This bill may not help to cut down the cost of living, but it will change a lot of policies in the economy. In the bill we will spend $370 billion to reduce emissions that contribute to climate change. The White House said the bill could help a massive human impact by helping elderly Americans struggling to pay for certain vital medicines and create a real quality of life improvement for millions. And in extending Obamacare, this is one of the greatest achievements of the Democratic Party.
From the Republican side, they are seeing the bill as making the already soaring inflation even worse.
The new bill is a major blow for energy states such like Texas. We need to remember from experience the high cost of energy storage and escalating gas prices.
From the Democratic party's standpoint, they are try to help the poor and vulnerable groups, so they think the government needs to spend more money. But when our deficits are getting higher and higher, how are we going to solve the inflation problem we still are facing?
We should look at the situation of the United States from the perspective of the whole world. It is impossible to think that our decisions will affect our country alone.
