我想向全体美国人民通报一下目前的情况, 我们今晚取得了一些进展。 我认为无论是众议院,参议院还是白宫的全体工作人员都在全力以赴地奋战,争取将我们今天已取得成果中仍然存在的分歧缩小。实际上部分分歧已经缩小了。我们的全体员工将通宵达旦彻夜努力工作为的是我们最终能达成结果。不过这其中仍然还存在一些悬而未决的问题,却是比较艰难的问题。这些问题对双方都非常重要,所以我还是不准备就此表达任何过于乐观的态度,然而,我们还是取得了比昨天更大的进展。

我想向全体人民强调为什么这件事对我们如此重要。我们现在离政府关闭的时间仅有不到30个小时了。那就意味着全国在政府各部门辛苦工作的近80万家庭成员突然不能来上班了,那也就意味着他们没工资可领了。对他们来说是个沉重的打击。同时还会有数百万人会因此受到影响,因为他们不会从联邦政府得到任 何的服务,而某些服务对人们来说非常重要,像小企业正在申请的贷款恐怕是拿不到了。显然这不是件好事会削弱市场。甚至影响到人们正常出行申请护照。因为政府的关闭会给数百万人带来不便和巨大的影响,导致的结果最终就是损钱和丢掉很多机会。而严重的是最终会导致整个经济受到影响。我这里想引用今天早些时候一位经济学家说的话,“政府关闭所带来的经济损失会迅速变大,拖得越久,重振经济衰退的希望就越变得渺茫。” 

过去两年我们一直在非常努力将经济领入正常轨道。上周五经过很长时间通过的最佳工作报告我们看到13个月来工作机会大为增长以及180万个新工作岗位的出现的确令人振奋。然而令人不能接受的是华盛顿方面没有能群策群力才使得我们感觉倒退了,以至80万个联邦的工作人员及家属受到牵连和影响,数百万仰仗政府提供服务的人们无法得到相应的服务,特别是商,农领域的人们所受影响会更大。这种后果最终影响到我们整个 经济,结果会严重阻碍经济恢复以及影响到人们重新回到工作岗位上的机会。这对美国人民来说至关重要。这也就是为什么我期待明天能看到在全体员工们昼夜奋战后达成的协议。

我需要指出的是昨晚我对发言人和Harry 谈到国家机器必须尽快开始运行,我期待一早就能有个答案出来, 而且我还期待在明天的早些时候能向全体美国人民宣布联邦政府关闭一事已有转机并且取得了成果,在广泛的领域都能有实质的削减以帮助我们步入正轨。不过要保证我们在教育,创新以及科研领域的投资比例,因为这些领域对我们国家的发展来说更具长期的竞争性。这也是我明天期待宣布的,目前一切都还不好说,都还是个未知数,但是,我还是期待着明天一早能有个明确的答案出来。

非常谢谢诸位

Again I want to report the American people that we made additional progress this evening. I think the staff of both the House and Senate as well as the White House staff are working very hard and try to narrow the differences we made progress today. Those differences have been narrowed. Again the staff is gonna be working tonight around the clock in order to see we can finally close the deal. But there is still a few issues that are outstanding. They are difficult issues,they are important for both sides, and so I am not yet preparing to express wild optimism, but we are further along today than we were yesterday.

I want to reiterate people why this is so important. We are now less than 30 hours away from the government shutting down.That means, first of all, 800,000 families, our neighbours and our friends who are working hard across the country in whole varieties of functions. They suddenly are not allowed to come to work. It also means they are not gonna get pay check. That obviously will be a tremendous impact. you then have millions people who end up being impacted because they are not getting services from the Federal Government that are important for them, small business are staying in loan process,folks who want to get loan from FACHA may not be able to get it, obviously that is not good as weakened thousand markets. You got people who tried to get passport for trips they’ve been planning for a long time may not be able to do that.So millions of more people will be significantly and inconveniently some ways they may end up saying money lost and opportunities lost because of the government shutdown.

And finally there is gonna be an affect on economy overall. Earlier today our nation’s economist said, I am quoting here, ” the economic damage from the government shutdown would mount very quickly and it longer dragged down, the greater odds of renewed recession. We’ve been working very hard over the past two years to get this economy back to its speed. We are now seeing 13 month job growth and 1.8 million new jobs we have the best job report we’ve seen very long time just passed on Friday, For us to go backward, because Washington couldn’t get tact together is unacceptable, so again 800,000 Federal workers and their families impacted , millions of people who relied on government services not getting the services, businesmses, farmers, and finally overall impact on the economy that could end up severely hampering our recovery and build our people back to work. That was the stake, That’s why very important for the American people. That’s why I am expecting that as consequensive good work to be done by our staff tonight we can reach an agreement tomorrow. Let me point it out one last tonight,When I said to the speaker and when I said to Harry because the machinery of the shutdown is necessarily starting to move, I expect an answer in the morning, and my hope is that I will be able to announce the American people sometime earlier in the day that the shutdown has been averted. That a deal has been completed that has very meaningful cuts in a wide varieties catagories that help us move in direction of our living within our means but preserves our investments in things like education, innovation and research better important for our long term competitiveness, That’s what I hope to be able to announce tomorrow, there is no certainty yet but i expect the answer sometime earlier in the day.  

Thank you very much
