VOA常速附字幕[翻譯]:民主黨掌控眾議院 共和黨日子可能不好過

發表時間:2019-01-09內容來源:VOA英語學習網

Pete Stauber, Republican, professional hockey player, police commander, dad of four, he flipped his Minnesota district from Democrat to Republican.

Katie Porter, Democrat, tenured California law Professor, graduate of Harvard and Yale, single mom of three, with no political experience she unseated an incumbent Republican.

Both our freshmen legislators new to the US Congress.

VOA is following them throughout their entire year in what we call climbing the hill as in Capitol Hill where US representatives and senators make this country’s laws. Stauber....

Historically these seats were mostly filled by white men.

But November’s election results made the 116th Congress the most diverse in history.

Katie Porter is among the largest percentage of women to be elected at nearly twenty four percent.

My very first issue that I want to work on this campaign finance reform: There’s a bill we’re hoping to introduce as HR 1, the first ball that the House takes up.

And for Stauber, the first bill would be about the jobs in the economy to keep this pro-growth pro-jobs agenda going.

Pete’s three children will remain in California until the end of the school year when they may move to the nation’s capital.

Stauber’s children will stay in Minnesota with his wife Jodi. While in Washington, Stauber will share a townhouse with 3 other congressmen.

My room is it’s about 10 by 12, and it’s got a bunk bed for family.

These freshmen know it will be a tough year with Democrats controlling the House of Representatives.

Pete Stauber knows that President Donald Trump, the man who campaigned for him, will be the target of investigations into Russian meddling and other matters.

I can’t stop them from doing that if that’s the majority’s will, but I don’t think the American people I don’t think it’s American people’s will.

Up until this point, life for these freshmen has been a blur.

Mrs. Pete drew number five.

The size and location of a Capitol Hill office depends on the lottery number polled.

The thing I’m most excited about is the members office which is right here I’m gonna paint a bright blue color and she did.

And this color was called Old Glory.

The election was nearly two months ago, and it’s still taking a while to sink in.

The title of congressman is kind of surreal, you know, for me.

People ask me who are you, and I say I’m a law professor and I’m a consumer, advocate and I’m a mom, and this is an additional identity that I have to think about, so it is a change. 

皮特是共和黨人、職業曲棍球員、警察指揮官,他也是4個孩子的父親。他之前是明尼蘇達州的民主黨議員,現在轉而成為共和黨議員。

卡蒂是民主黨人,他是加州法學終身教授,曾畢業于哈佛大學和耶魯大學,是3個孩子的單親媽媽,初次步入政治生涯的她現在是一名共和黨議員。

這兩位都是初次成為國會議員。

我臺將持續跟蹤他們二人今年的工作,我們稱之為攀登國會大樓之峰,這是因為美國的兩院議員制定法律的過程就如同攀登高峰。皮特……

以前,兩院的席位都由白人男性掌控。

但11月的選舉結果讓第116屆國會成為歷史上最具多樣性的一屆。

卡蒂這一屆是女性候選人占比最高的一屆——達到了24%。

我想著手解決的第一個問題就是財政改革運動的問題:有一項議案是我們想要引入的,即《HR 1法案》。這是新一屆眾議院將要著手的第一項工作。

對于皮特來說,第一項議案將與經濟領域的就業崗位有關,該議案將保證支持經濟增長和就業增長的議程穩步進行。

皮特的3個孩子將留在加州,直到本學年結束。下一學年,他們可能會搬到美國首都。

皮特的孩子將跟妻子約迪留在明尼蘇達州。在華盛頓期間,皮特將與另外3名國會議員共住一套別墅。

我房間長12米,寬10米,有一張雙層床,住得下一家人。

這2位國會新議員都知道今年會很艱難,因為眾議院由民主黨掌控。

皮特知道,曾經為自己助選的特朗普將會成為通俄案等調查的對象。

如果這是大多數人的意愿,那我無法阻擋。但我認為這并不是美國人民的意愿。

目前來看,這些國會新議員的未來還是一片渺茫。

皮特夫人排名第五。

國會辦公室的大小和位置取決于得票數。

我感到最興奮的一件事是:我們所有議員的辦公室就在這兒,我要把墻面刷成淺藍色。而她果然就這樣做了。

我們將這個顏色成為星條光榮之色。

選舉已經過去近2個月了,我還沒完全緩過勁兒來。

于我而言,國會議員的稱謂感覺如夢一般。

總有人問我是做什么的。我會說我是一名法學教授,也是一名消費者、倡導者,我已為人母。國會議員是我的另一個身份,這說明情況在發生改變。
