One in six Americans will starve! The United States will encounter the problem of federal funding due and pandemic relief.
The pandemic in the United States continues to worsen, and the temporary budget funds of the federal government are about to expire, but a new round of spending bills have been delayed.
And the new round of COVID-19 relief bill has been quarreling for months and it is still difficult to give birth. U.S. media reported on November 30 that the United States is about to face the problem of expiring federal funds and a new round of pandemic relief.
On November 30th local time, ABC reported that the U.S. Congress will face many urgent problems in the coming week or more as a large number of members of its terms are about to expire. The temporary funding budget of the U.S.
federal government is about to expire, which means that the United States will have to pass a new spending bill by December 11 to avoid the shutdown of government departments.
However, even if Congress can pass a new round of spending bills, it may not be easy for US President Trump to sign it. From December 2018 to January 2019, Trump had a disagreement with Congress over the budget of the U.S.-Mexico border wall, causing some government departments in the United States to fall into the longest shutdown in history.
According to Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization, more than 50 million people, or nearly one in six Americans, face hunger problems in 2020. But the new COVID-19 relief bill is still in difficult labor.
The Democratic and Republican parties in the U.S. Congress have been wrestled for nearly six months over the second round of the relief bill, and the two sides cannot agree on a specific amount.”
Claire, head of Feeding America, said that the United States is facing not only a health crisis, but also a food crisis. It is not enough to solve the current predicament by food relief organizations alone.
It also needs to be jointly addressed by the government and relevant agencies.
Claire, head of Feeding America, the largest hunger relief organization in the United States: What is really shocking is that one sixth is the national average. In fact, in some communities, one in two children faces food shortages.
In fact, around 22 million children across the country relied on free and small amounts of lunches distributed by the government before the pandemic, and it is also true that families with children are more likely to face food shortages.
Communities of color are particularly vulnerable, and they are twice as likely to suffer from food shortages as others, and rural communities are more likely to face food shortages.
Therefore, there are many factors that cause the current impact on vulnerable communities, not only the health crisis, but also the food crisis.
