分歧难解 美国联邦政府周日可能面临部分关门​

美国国会众议院议长凯文·麦卡锡2023年9月28日向记者讲话。

由于国会参众两院在未来12个月的预算规模、继续援助乌克兰抗击俄罗斯、美墨边境移民管制以及帮助贫困美国人的社会福利计划等问题上仍存在分歧,美国联邦政府周日(10月1日)将面临部分关门。

民主党控制的参议院计划于周四(9月28日)进行程序性投票,以推进一项为期七周的拨款计划,该计划将使政府全面运营至11月中旬,从而使议员们有更多时间设定直至2024年9月的支出水平。

但共和党占微弱多数的众议院议长凯文·麦卡锡(Kevin McCarthy)已经拒绝将参议院的计划提交众议院表决。

相反,众议院正继续就四个政府机构为期一年的拨款法案修正案进行表决,这些修正案获得参议院批准的可能性很小,而且无论如何也无法阻止周六午夜关闭非必要的所有政府运作。

周四上午,政府机构开始通知部门工作人员,政府可能即将关门。

参议院共和党领袖米奇·麦康奈尔(Mitch McConnell)警告议员们,部分政府关门会带来深重的影响,尤其是在控制南部美墨边境移民潮方面的困难。

麦康奈尔说:“政府关门不像按下暂停键。这不是一个我们能从停下的地方再次开始的间歇。这是一个十分有害的主张。它非但不会产生任何有意义的政策成果,反而会将我们在一些关键问题上取得的重要进展往后拖。”

如果无法达成短期拨款协议,400多万美国军人和政府工作人员将无法领到工资,但空中交通管制点和官方边境入境点等基本服务仍将有人值守。养老金领取者可能无法按时拿到政府每月支付的款项,无法支付账单和购买日用品,国家公园也可能关闭。

在过去十年中,美国曾四次发生此类政府关门事件,但往往只持续一两天,直到议员们达成妥协后又全面重启政府运作。但在前总统唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)执政期间,由于他寻求资金在美墨边境修建隔离墙未果,政府一度关门长达35天。

由于每天都有成千上万的移民徒步穿越美国西南边境,移民控制仍然是确定美国政府10月1日开始的财政年度开支水平和政策的关键之一。

麦卡锡今年5月与民主党总统乔·拜登(Joe Biden)就2024财年的开支水平达成协议,但众议院极右翼共和党人中的一小部分拒绝了这一协议,现在他们要求进一步削减开支。

麦卡锡和拜登的协议要求在2024财年削减1.59万亿美元的可支配支出,但众议院自由党团的一些右翼成员要求再削减1200亿美元,并进一步控制边境。

对于美国6.4万亿美元的总体预算来说,这些削减只是相对较小的一部分,不会影响养老金的支付或政府为美国老年人提供的医疗保险。

一些最保守的议员还希望大幅削减或终止美国对乌克兰的援助,尽管更多主流共和党议员仍坚定地支持乌克兰抗击俄罗斯入侵的斗争,认为这对美国国家安全和保护欧洲北约国家至关重要。

参议院11月中旬之前的短期开支计划有可能在众议院获得通过,但前提是共和党和民主党都参与投票。

在剑拔弩张的华盛顿,一心想削减开支的共和党强硬派议员威胁说,如果麦卡锡试图利用民主党的赞成票来通过开支投票,他们将试图把麦卡锡赶下议长的位置。

拜登周三在旧金山的一次筹款活动上对一组捐赠者说:“我认为议长正在(保留)议长位置和美国利益之间做出选择。”

麦卡锡周二表示,如果拜登愿意就边境问题进行谈判,就可以避免政府关门。

麦卡锡说:“给我们打电话,让我们坐下来,在今天结束之前完成这项工作。”但作为2024年可能成为寻求连任的拜登的对手、共和党总统竞选的主要领跑人特朗普已在社交媒体上推动其国会盟友走向政府关门。

拜登说,麦肯锡需要在美国利益和议长位置之间做出选择,为保住得来不易的议长位置,他不得不向共和党内极右翼的少数几人做出妥协。

最大的对手:盖茨。

今晚接着投票。

据说并不罕见,谈不拢时不时地关个2-3天,最长的一次是川普时代,关了35天。

有些岗位不发工资也必须工作,先欠着,以后补发,不要紧的岗位,就强制性休假了,可能没薪水了。

Do federal employees get paid during a shutdown?

2019 law made it mandatory:

Federal employees, whether they remain on the job or are furloughed, won't get paid while the government is shut down. However, they will receive back pay once funding is restored to their agency.

Contractors are not guaranteed back pay.

通过的议案中,不包括对乌克兰的援助。在民主党占多数的参议员中,有人试图加入这项,说没有美国的继续支持,乌克兰将要战败。

投票前一位众议院共和党议员Bowman拉响了火警警报,议长麦肯锡说需要调查动机,还有同党议员提议开除他,他解释说一般通往投票厅的门是开着的,他误以为拉火警警报可以开门,是个错误操作。

奇葩!

有高中生时常有严冬拉响火警的恶作剧,师生不得不在露天,穿着单薄地冻着等待救护车来排除火警。

Rep. Bowman says accusations over fire alarm incident are "complete BS"​

From CNN’s Melanie Zanona


In this photo obtained by CNN, Rep. Jamaal Bowman reportedly pulls a fire alarm in the Cannon House Office Building on Saturday morning, shortly before the House was scheduled to vote on a government funding bill, which the New York Democrat claims was an accident.

New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman attempted to explain himself to reporters this afternoon after meeting with House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries over a fire alarm incident, saying he thought the alarm would open a door.
“I was trying to get to a door. I thought the alarm would open the door and I pulled the fire alarm to open the door by accident,” he told reporters.
“I was just trying to get to my vote, and the door that's usually open wasn't open; it was closed,” he added.
He said that accusations from the other side of the aisle that he purposely pulled the alarm are “complete BS.”
Bowman met with Jeffries about the incident shortly after the stopgap measure passed the House. He said Jeffries tone was “supportive” and “he understood that was a mistake.”
Bowman laughed loudly when asked about draft resolutions from GOP colleagues to expel him for the incident. “Oh, my goodness. I mean, listen, again, they're gonna do what they do. This is what they do,” he said.
The incident was first revealed by House Administration Committee Chair Bryan Steil.
“Rep Jamal Bowman pulled a fire alarm in Cannon this morning. An investigation into why it was pulled is underway,” Steil said in a statement.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said the House ethics committee should look into it.
GOP Rep. Lisa McClain told CNN that she is circulating a resolution to censure Bowman.

真二啊,明明是民主党议员拉警报,却给说成共和党了。连点基本素质都不具备,还热心政评。当然如果是一个怕金森病人读报纸,那就没必要苛责了。
