President Obama told the nation Wednesday he will spend as much as $900 billion to try to stimulate the economy and get us out of recession.
 奥巴马总统星期三说,美国将花费多达九千亿美元,试图刺激经济,使美国经济摆脱衰退的状态。

Last week, another 70,000 jobs were lost.
上周,又有将近70,000人被迫失业。

 

There's no question: The USA is in major economic trouble. Any debate about the worthiness of the stimulus is useless now because it's going to happen. President Obama is staking his entire future on it.
毫无疑问:美国具有重大的经济问题。任何争辩都是没有意义的,因为美国经济什么事情都有可能发生。总统奥巴马是在赌整个经济的未来。

 

But what is vitally important is that the money is spent well and honestly. President Obama promises to do that and says you can follow all of the spending on recovery.gov.
但是极为重要的是,钱被花的十分有条理而且相当公正。总统奥巴马承诺,做到这一点,并表示可以追加的一切可用的开支。

 

Now "Talking Points" is skeptical that the feds will spend our tax dollars wisely because in the past they have not. So Paul Revere, that's me, has an obligation to suggest some constructive ideas to help the process, and here they are:
现在, “会谈要点”是对政府工作人员能否明智的花费我们的税金的疑问,因为在过去,他们却没有这样做。因此,保罗里维尔,这就是我,有责任提出了一些建设性的想法,以帮助这一进程,他们是:

 

We support the $20 billion tax cut for small business, and we support tax cuts for working Americans and a one-time federal rebate of a few hundred dollars to workers.I know that didn't work when President Bush tried it last spring, but people are hurting and will likely spend the money."Talking Points" also supports federal money to build infrastructure, improve roads, bridges, the national grid. That will put people to work and make the nation better.
一方面,我们支出二百亿美元为中小型企业减税,我们支持减税工作的美国人和为一个一次性减税几百美元的联邦退税的工人感到骄傲。我知道,当布什总统准备在去年春天实施减税工作时很多人失去了工作,但人们很可能会互相伤害和花钱。 “会谈要点”还支持联邦资金建设基础设施,改善道路,桥梁,国家电网。这将促进就业,使国家更好。

 

On the other side, President Obama has got to knock off the nonsense when it comes to ideological spending and nanny state building.
另一方面,奥巴马总统已停止了说到思想支出和婆婆妈妈的国家建设时的胡言乱语。

 

$400 million for global warming research? Are you kidding me? No. $2.4 billion for carbon capture projects? That doesn't stimulate the economy. In fact, there are billions in the stimulus package for environmental stuff like clean oceans. Those things are worthy, but they should be considered in a separate bill.
支出四亿美元对全球变暖进行研究?你在开玩笑吗?价值24亿美元的高纯碳获取项目?这并不是刺激经济。事实上,有几十亿美元的宏观的经济刺激计划就像清洁海洋一样毫无意义。那些东西都值得,但是他们应该考虑一个单独的法案去实施。

 

Another $650 million for digital TV conversion coupons? That's insane. $150 million for the Smithsonian? No. $1 billion for Amtrak? Hey, Mr. President, sell Amtrak. It's been a loser for 40 years. Let the private industry run it.
另一个六亿五千万美元数字电视转换的优惠券?这是疯狂的。 1.5亿美元的史密森?第10亿美元的美铁?嘿,总统先生,出售美铁。这是一个失败者的40年。让私营企业运行它吧。

 

And then there are billions for increased food stamps, child care, and other entitlements that have nothing to do with stimulating the economy.
此外,还有数十亿增加食品支出,儿童保健,和其他已无关刺激经济的应享权利。
