美国还会发第四轮纾困金吗?

美国还会发第四轮纾困金吗?

Chris Morris 2021年06月07日
虽然美国经济正在好转,但据劳工部(Labor Department)的数据显示,美国5月失业率依旧达到5.8%。

虽然许多人还没有领到第三轮1,400美元的纾困金,但已经有人开始呼吁政府发放第四轮纾困金。

超过230万人在Change.org网站上请愿,呼吁政府继续发放2,000美元成年人补助和1,000美元儿童补助。3月底,有21位民主党参议员(包括伊丽莎白•沃伦和伯尼•桑德斯在内)致信乔•拜登总统,支持继续发放纾困金和自动延长失业补助。

信中表示:“都会研究所(Urban Institute)的一项研究显示,一次直接发放1,200美元、延长加强版失业补助以及其他救济措施,可以帮助1,200万人摆脱贫困,而第二轮直接补助可以再帮助630万人的生活水平维持在贫困线以上。”

然而,面对这种呼声,拜登政府似乎并不赞同发放第四轮纾困金。周四,白宫新闻秘书珍•普萨基淡化了继续发放纾困金的可能性。

她表示:“总统很高兴听到各方面就对经济发展最有效和最重要的措施发表意见。但他也表示当务之急是让民众恢复就业,顺利度过这段关键时期,以及提高我们的长远竞争力。”

虽然美国经济正在好转,但据劳工部(Labor Department)的数据显示,美国5月失业率依旧达到5.8%。虽然这与4月6.1%的失业率相比有所好转,但新增就业远不及预期。上个月,公司新创造就业岗位55.9万个,低于分析师预测的67.1万个。

虽然拜登政府当前的工作重点是通过基础设施建设一揽子计划,但某些州的民众依旧有可能领到额外补助金。例如,加州州长加文•纽森提议扩大该州的“金州刺激”纾困计划,在已经发放的600美元基础上,再向年收入低于75,000美元的家庭发放600美元。在美国政府3月份通过的经济刺激法案中,有3,500亿美元补助金可以由州和地方政府直接发放给本地居民。美国财政部(Treasury Department)上个月针对这比资金的使用发布了一系列规定。

拜登的“美国家庭计划”如果获得通过,也能提供一些救济。该计划将把每月250美元儿童税收抵免政策延长至2025年。(财富中文网)

While many people still haven’t received their third round $1,400 stimulus checks, the push is already on in some corners for a fourth round.

More than 2.3 million people have signed a Change.org petition calling for recurring $2,000 payments to adults and $1,000 payments for children. And at the end of March, 21 Senate Democrats (including Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders) sent a letter to President Joe Biden supporting the idea of recurring payments and automatic unemployment insurance extensions.

“An Urban Institute study suggests that a single direct payment of $1,200 combined with an extension of enhanced unemployment insurance and other assistance could keep 12 million people out of poverty, and adding a second direct payment could keep an additional 6.3 million people above the poverty line,” the group wrote.

Despite the calls, though, the Biden administration doesn’t seem to be behind the idea of a fourth check. On Thursday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki downplayed the likelihood of another round of stimulus payments.

“He’s happy to hear from a range of ideas on what would be most effective and what’s most important to the economy moving forward,” Psaki said. “But he’s also proposed what he thinks is going to be the most effective for the short term for putting people back to work, to getting through this pivotal period of time, and also to making us more competitive in the long term.”

While the economy is improving, 5.8% of the country was still without work in May, according to the Labor Department. That was better than April’s 6.1%, but new jobs fell short of expectations. Companies created 559,000 new jobs last month, but analysts were expecting 671,000.

While the Biden administration for now appears focused on passing an infrastructure spending package, residents in some states could still see additional funds. California Gov. Gavin Newsom, for example, has proposed $600 payments to families that make up to $75,000, an expansion of California’s Golden State Stimulus program, which has already sent out $600 payments. And the March economic stimulus package included $350 billion in aid for state and local governments that can be used to make direct payments to their citizens. The Treasury Department last month released a set of rules for spending the money.

Biden’s American Families Plan, if passed, could also provide some relief. That plan would extend the $250 monthly child tax credit through 2025.
