Weekly Address: Addressing Puerto Rico’s Economic Crisis

解决波多黎各的金融危机

Hi, everybody. Today, I want to talk with you about the crisis in Puerto Rico – and why it matters to all of us.

大家好。今天,我打算与各位谈谈波多黎各的经济危机--以及为什么它与我们所有人息息相关。

Puerto Ricans are American citizens, just like folks in Maine or Oklahoma or New Mexico. And over the last decade, Puerto Rico has suffered through a deep and painful recession – but unlike the rest of the United States, it hasn’t recovered.

波多黎各人是美国公民,就像缅因州、俄克拉荷马州和新墨西哥州的人们一样。在过去的十年里,波多黎各经历了水深火热的衰退--但是与美国的其它州不同,它至今没有复苏。

Today, the island continues to face a crippling economic crisis. Schools are closing. Power is being cut off at homes and hospitals. Teachers have to choose between turning on the lights or turning on the computers. Doctors can’t get medicine to treat newborns unless they pay in cash. And as the Zika virus threatens both the island and the mainland, workers dealing with mosquito control to help protect women and their unborn babies are at risk of being laid off.

今天,这个岛国仍然面对阻碍经济发展的危机。学校关门。住宅和医院的工地中断。老师们不得不在开灯还是开电脑之间选择。除非用现金支付,医生无法得到药品给新生儿治病。随着在卡病毒在该岛国和美洲大陆泛滥,执行蚊虫控制以帮助保护妇女和她们的胎儿的工人们,面临被下岗的遭遇。

Right now, Puerto Rico is spending about a third of its tax revenue on debt payments – far more than anywhere else in America. And on July 1, the island faces another $2 billion in debt payments that it cannot pay.

迄今为止,波多黎各将三分之一的税收用于支付债务--远远高于美洲的任何地方。七月一日,该岛国将面对它无法支付的另外$20亿美元的债务。

There is only one way for Puerto Rico to pull itself out of this crisis – and that’s by restructuring its debt and finding a sustainable fiscal path toward growth and opportunity for its people. But here’s the problem. Right now, Puerto Rico doesn’t have the tools it needs to restructure its debt – tools available elsewhere in America.

波多黎各只有一条摆脱危机的出路--那就是通过债务重组和找到,通往经济增长和给其人民机会的可持续的金融途径。但是问题有以下几个。迄今为止,波多黎各没有必要的金融工具重组它的债务--美洲其它地方都有的金融工具。

And only Congress can fix the problem, and put Puerto Rico on a path to recovery.
