[Instant News/Comprehensive Report]The two major U.S. parties have different opinions on the Wuhan pneumonia (new coronavirus disease, COVID-19) relief bill. Today (5th) the Senate voted 51 Slightly ahead of 50 to break the deadlock and pass the draft budget of the bailout law. The Democrats will push the bill despite the opposition of the Republicans in the coming weeks.

According to “Reuters”, the Biden version of the bailout bill is about US$1.9 trillion (about NT$53 trillion). The Republican Party believes that the cost is too high and that it should be reduced. After 15 hours of meetings and discussions between the two parties, the senators are still stuck in a 50 to 50 voting stalemate. However, at this time, Vice President He Jinli, who is also the Speaker of the Senate, can join the vote according to law, allowing Biden’s bailout version of the bill to be passed. .

Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer said that this is a major step forward for the bailout bill, and the Biden administration regards the legislation of this bill as its top priority.

Before the final vote on the draft bail-out law, the Democrats also added several amendments to reverse the votes passed by the Republicans during Trump’s administration, such as the “Keystone XL” (Keystone XL) for the U.S.-Canada pipeline project, and the hydraulic fracturing method (Hydraulic). fracturing) extracting underground oil and natural gas, showing the Democratic Party’s current number advantage in the Senate.

The US Senate today also rejected the Republican amendment to prevent illegal immigrants from receiving subsidies for the Wuhan pneumonia epidemic.

This is the first time He Jinli has joined the vote as the Speaker of the Senate since taking office as Vice President last month, and helped the Democrats break the deadlock in the Senate and pass the vote 51-50.

Because the Senate has passed many amendments to the draft budget, the House of Representatives will re-vote on the amendments to the Senate, which can begin as early as today.

The Biden administration expressed the hope that comprehensive legislation will be implemented immediately to help the American people who are in trouble due to unemployment and death. They hope to widely promote the vaccine in the United States, extend the unemployment benefits that will expire in March this year, and directly help people deal with debts in an attempt to revitalize the economy. The Biden administration also hopes to provide subsidies to local governments that have fallen into trouble due to the epidemic.
