I would like us to raise the debt ceiling sooner rather than later.
我希望尽早提高债务上限。
That's fair enough for me.
我认为这样做有道理。
On the subject of the debt ceiling, this shouldn't even be a question.
就债务上限来说,这甚至不应该成为一个问题。
I happen to think that debt ceiling is a good thing. A lot of people don't think we should have a debt ceiling.
我恰好认为债务上限是件好事。许多人认为我们不应该设置债务上限。
oh, the debt ceiling, the eternal Washington food fight. So, what is it? And why is it so contentious?
债务上限,华盛顿永恒的食物战。什么是债务上限?为什么它这么有争议?
The debt ceiling is the legal limit set by Congress on how much money American can borrow.
债务上限是美国国会对美国的借款数额设定的法律限制。
Because the U.S. spends more money than it takes in, it must borrow to make up the difference. The debt ceiling caps how much. The problem is, it's not enough. So, every once in a while, the country needs to raise it. If it doesn't, the Treasury Department won't be able to pay all of its bills in full and on time.
因为美国的支出多于收入,所以必须通过借款来弥补差额。债务上限会限定借款数额。问题是,借款根本不够。所以,每隔一段时间,美国就要提高一下债务上限。如果不提高,那美国财政部就无法按时付清所有账单。
Now, the Treasury does have a little wiggle room before it gets to that point, something it calls "extraordinary measures" to move money around.
在到达那种地步之前,财政部还有一些回旋余地,他们可以采取所谓的“特别措施”来进行资金周转。
But eventually, the accounting tricks run out and there's no more avoiding the debt ceiling. That's usually when the fireworks break out.
但是最终,会计手段会用尽,而债务上限无法避免。这通常就是争论最激烈的时候。
Those extraordinary measures she mentioned are being utilized right now. The debt ceiling or limit is currently set at $19.81 trillion. The U.S. national debt is now $19.88 trillion and counting. In fact, since you saw come back on your screen, it's increased by about$215,000.
她刚刚提到的“特别措施”目前正在使用。目前的债务上限是19.81万亿美元。而美国的国家债务总额是19.88万亿美元,而且债务还在继续增加。实际上,就在你看屏幕的这段时间,债务就增加了约21.5万美元。
It's up to Congress to decide whether to raise the debt ceiling and allow the government to keep borrowing money. Experts say the extraordinary measures in place will allow the Treasury Department to essentially move money around until this fall when actual consequences would hit if the limit isn't raise.
国会需要决定是否提高债务上限以及是否允许政府继续借款。专家表示,实施“特别措施”将使美国财政部的运转资金维持到今年秋天,而如果届时债务上限没有提高,那政府将会面临实际后果。
