奥巴马2月21日电台演讲

翻译,by林萍地

总统:这周之初,我签名通过了美国复苏和再投资法案,这是在历史上最大的经济复苏计划,正因为这个计划,有350万的美国人回到工作,去完成美国亟待完成的任务。

 

我要感谢全国的议会、政府官员和市长,还有所有那些他们的支持使这重要的一步得以跨越的人们。

 

正因为我们一起共同的努力,铁铲开始挖土了,起重机在空中移动了,工人们开始修建我们破损的道路和桥梁,修建我们未完善的防洪提和大坝。

 

正因为我们一起共同的努力,那些生产可再生能源的公司,无论是大公司,还是小公司,现在都可以申请贷款担保和减税,开辟新的道路继续发展,而不是取而代之的裁员;许多家庭也可以通过增加防寒系统,来降低他们的能源账单。

 

正因为我们一起共同的努力,我们的孩子可以从21世纪的学校毕业,将有多出几百万的学生可以拿到他们的学士学位,而这在上周是不可能发生的。

 

正因为我们一起共同的努力,生活水平能得到保持,新的计算机化的病史档案将使医疗费用减少。

 

正因为我们共同的努力,现在有警察在站岗,消防员在待命,老师们原本以为他们不可能继续他们重要的使命,现在也在备课了。

同时保证了所有这一切都是空前的透明和详细说明的完成,我已指派了一队经理人,以确保宝贵的税收得到明智的投资。

 

正因为我们共同的努力,95%的工人家庭得以减税,实现我在竞选时的承诺。我很高兴宣布,早上财政部开始引导雇主减少付薪水的支票上扣除的税收数目,这意味着,到4月1号,普通家庭将能至少每个月多拿65美元回家。而这在我们的历史上,从没有过那次减税产生的效果如此快速且受益的工人如此之多。

 

虽然我成功的签署了这个计划成为法律,但这只是我们复苏经济之路的第一步,我们也不能在完成这个旅途使命上失败。而这就要求我们阻止抵押品丧失赎回权的蔓延,和家庭价值的流失,也要求我们要尽我们所能帮助负责任的房主保住他们的家——这正是我上周宣布的住房计划所要帮助我们做的事。

 

为了复苏经济,我们必须稳定和修复银行系统,让信用流通到家庭和商业。我们要重建这让经济危机发生的破损的规章系统,并重新认识到只有建立并实施21世纪的规则,我们才能走上繁荣经济之路。

 

同时,当我们的经济开始复苏时,我们也必须控制爆炸性增长的财政赤字,下周一,我们就开始这个工作,到时我将会召集顶尖的财政会议,包括那些独立的专家和机构、国会众议院的辩护队伍和成员,来讨论我们该如何消减历史遗留下来的万亿的财政赤字。下周二,我将谈论我们的紧急的国家优先权。下周四,我将减少一部分预算,来严谨赤字的估值,让其会计更加可信,同时展示我们策略的细节,其包括投资我们所需要的,消减我们不需要的,恢复财政纪律。

 

无论这个广泛的经济复苏计划的任何一部一部分,它自己都不能够满足我们面临的解决困境的需求。除非我们为家庭和商业解冻信用,不然我们是不可能帮助人们找到工作,付清账单的。除非我们能够帮助人们找到工作,让他们可以为他们的家付钱,否则我们是无法解决我们的住房危机的。如果没有加强我们经济发展之路的规则,我们是无法产生共同的繁荣的。如果没能控制我们的财政赤字,我们是无法保证可持续的经济增长。总之,如果没有把它们都考虑在内,我们是无法成功的解决每一个问题的,而我们追求的策略就是设计来这样做的。

 

所有的一切都不可能是容易的,前面的路将是遥远却充满险境的,但是我相信我们,作为一个民族,将拥有足够的力量和智慧来实现这个策略,来克服这次危机。而如果我们这样做了,我们的经济,我们的国家,将会因此变得更好更强大。

谢谢。

 

THE PRESIDENT:  Earlier this week, I signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act -- the most sweeping economic recovery plan in history.  Because of this plan, 3.5 million Americans will now go to work doing the work that America needs done.

 

I'm grateful to Congress, governors and mayors across the country, and to all of you whose support made this critical step possible.

 

Because of what we did together, there will now be shovels in the ground, cranes in the air, and workers rebuilding our crumbling roads and bridges, and repairing our faulty levees and dams.

 

Because of what we did, companies -- large and small -- that produce renewable energy can now apply for loan guarantees and tax credits and find ways to grow, instead of laying people off; and families can lower their energy bills by weatherizing their homes.

 

Because of what we did, our children can now graduate from 21st century schools and millions more can do what was unaffordable just last week -- and get their college degree.

 

Because of what we did, lives will be saved and health care costs will be cut with new computerized medical records.

 

Because of what we did, there will now be police on the beat, firefighters on the job, and teachers preparing lesson plans who thought they would not be able to continue pursuing their critical missions.  And ensure that all of this is done with an unprecedented level of transparency and accountability, I have assigned a team of managers to make sure that precious tax dollars are invested wisely and well.

 

Because of what we did, 95 percent of all working families will get a tax cut -- in keeping with a promise I made on the campaign.  And I'm pleased to announce that this morning, the Treasury Department began directing employers to reduce the amount of taxes withheld from paychecks -- meaning that by April 1st, a typical family will begin taking home at least $65 more every month.  Never before in our history has a tax cut taken effect faster or gone to so many hardworking Americans.

 

But as important as it was that I was able to sign this plan into law, it is only a first step on the road to economic recovery.  And we can't fail to complete the journey.  That will require stemming the spread of foreclosures and falling home values, and doing all we can to help responsible homeowners stay in their homes, which is exactly what the housing plan I announced last week will help us do.

 

It will require stabilizing and repairing our banking system, and getting credit flowing again to families and businesses.  It will require reforming the broken regulatory system that made this crisis possible, and recognizing that it's only by setting and enforcing 21st century rules of the road that we can build a thriving economy.

 

And it will require doing all we can to get exploding deficits under control as our economy begins to recover.  That work begins on Monday, when I will convene a fiscal summit of independent experts and unions, advocacy groups and members of Congress, to discuss how we can cut the trillion-dollar deficit that we've inherited.  On Tuesday, I will speak to the nation about our urgent national priorities.  And on Thursday, I'll release a budget that's sober in its assessments, honest in its accounting, and lays out in detail my strategy for investing in what we need, cutting what we don't, and restoring fiscal discipline.

 

No single piece of this broad economic recovery can, by itself, meet the demands that have been placed on us.  We can't help people find work or pay their bills unless we unlock credit for families and businesses.  We can't solve our housing crisis unless we help people find work so that they can make payments on their homes.  We can't produce shared prosperity without firm rules of the road, and we can't generate sustained growth without getting our deficits under control.  In short, we cannot successfully address any of our problems without addressing them all.  And that is exactly what the strategy we are pursuing is designed to do.

 

None of this will be easy.  The road ahead will be long and full of hazards.  But I am confident that we, as a people, have the strength and wisdom to carry out this strategy and overcome this crisis.  And if we do, our economy -- and our country -- will be better and stronger for it.

 

Thank you.
