美媒称,富人政治影响美国大选, 奥巴马面临挑战 , (2012-01-21) 在南卡来罗纳州初选迫在眉睫之际，大选新闻仍旧是美国主流媒体周四报道的焦点。在外交方面，美国多份报纸关注伊朗和俄罗斯向叙利亚提供幕后帮助这一事件。 大选新闻之一：罗姆尼的财富备受争议 罗姆尼的财富以及他的低税率等问题继续发酵，成为多家媒体报道的头条。 《 华尔街日报》指出，和其他美国人一样，罗姆尼也有个人退休账户。但是,和大多数人不同的是，罗姆尼退休账户上,有着高达一,两千万美元的资金。美国法律规定:存到这个账户上的资金是免税的，是一种合法的避税方法。 《 纽约时报》认为:罗姆尼的财富是他竞选面临的一个新障碍。周三，罗姆尼的对手,就这一问题,加大了攻击力度，不断迫使他公开交税记录。在罗姆尼过去竞选公职的过程中，他都对此进行了回绝。这一次，他表示:要在4月份公开这一纪录。 罗姆尼强调，他们夫妇收入的10%,捐给了教会。资料显示，罗姆尼夫妇,自从1999年以来，向他们的家庭基金,转了950万美元的资金，这个基金,把其中的470万美元,捐给了摩门教会。罗姆尼有时,还向该教会,捐赠他在贝恩资本的股票，在过去15年中，摩门教会,从贝恩资本的盈利收入中,获得了1300万美元的收入。然而，大部分美国民众对该教会持负面印象。 对于罗姆尼15%的低税率，纽约市长布隆伯格表示不满。布隆伯格说，他本人支付的税率,是美国个人所得税中最高的。 《 今日美国》,1月19日头版：超级政治行动委员会影响美国大选。 大选新闻之二：富人政治的表现——超级政治行动委员会 《 今日美国》和《 洛杉矶时报》,今天,把焦点放在了超级政治行动委员会。根据美国2010年最高法院的决定，由大公司和工会支持的超级政治行动委员会,在不直接和某个竞选团队进行沟通协调的情况下，可以自行通过播放广告等形式,支持或者诋毁某位候选人。通常情况下，超级政治行动委员会都是和某位候选人长期保持联系、关系较紧密的朋友。 最高法院判决的依据,是言论自由，但是，包括《 纽约时报》在内的主流媒体都认为:这是对金钱政治的纵容，富人有可能因此对竞选发挥巨大的影响。 根据《 洛杉矶时报》的数据，在本次竞选中，截至到上周六，超级政治行动委员会在南卡罗来纳州,已播出了价值690万美元的电视广告；候选人本人播出了总共价值540万美元的广告。 据联邦竞选委员会的数据，仅这次竞选，超级政治行动委员会已花费了2700万美元。 大选新闻之三：奥巴马受到中间派选民的挑战 《 纽约时报》报道，奥巴马在几个重要的初选州,面临来自中间派选民的压力。根据最新的一份调查，三分之二的中间派候选人认为:奥巴马在连任之后,没有明确的目标，不赞成他处理经济的方式；只有三分之一的调查者表示:支持他。这部分选民,在2008年的选举中，为他的当选,立下了汗马功劳。 美国外交：伊朗和俄罗斯暗中帮助叙利亚 根据《 华尔街日报》的报道，美国官员发现:伊朗帮助叙利亚销售石油，以此,来支持总统阿萨德。美国称，仅在上个月，大约有9万1千吨原油,从叙利亚,运送到伊朗。之后，伊朗在国际市场上,销售这些原油，把所得资金,归还叙利亚。目前，由于美国和欧盟的制裁，叙利亚不能在国际市场上销售其石油。 为了阻止伊朗的这一行为，美国财政部收紧了运输叙利亚石油的国际邮轮的保险和注册规定。 另据这份报道，伊朗并不是唯一在幕后帮助叙利亚的国家。这个月，塞浦路斯拦截了一艘装满军火、运往叙利亚的俄罗斯国籍船只。后来,在俄罗斯公司保证放弃运输的情况下，塞浦路斯放行了这艘船只。 但是，莫斯科本周证实，这批军火运输已经完成。俄罗斯外交部长,周三指出，俄国没有违反任何国际法，“我们只是和叙利亚开展贸易，而贸易的商品,并未被国际法所禁止。” 《 华盛顿邮报》指出，国际社会在干预叙利亚问题上,存在的严重分歧，有可能促使反叛方,走上让这个国家,甚至整个地区,处于长期内战的方向。 美国国内要闻：参议院将重新考虑《 网络反盗版法》 面对来自因特网的强烈抗议，参议院表示:将重新考虑与网络反盗版法相关的两个提案。 《 纽约时报》认为:这是新兴的网络对抗传统的游说集团的胜利，是以因特网为代表的新经济,站起来对抗传统的经济势力的胜利。在这次事件中，大媒体公司花费巨资,雇佣华盛顿的游说公司，试图说服国会议员,通过这两个提案。 奥巴马二次拒绝石油管道工程 “拱心石”石油输出管道工程的新进展,成为《 华盛顿邮报》和《 今日美国》的关注点。奥巴马总统,周三发表讲话，拒绝给予加拿大石油公司开工许可。该项工程,计划是将加拿大生产的石油,运送到美国南部德州的炼油厂。 奥巴马的这一声明,是针对国会共和党为该工程的通过,所设置的2月21号期限发表的。奥巴马认为:这个期限,不能给国务院足够的时间,来收集信息，决定开工的利弊。 面对环境保护人士的压力，白宫希望-把这一问题,推迟到11月的选举之后。这是奥巴马第二次拒绝该项目。 《 华尔街日报》,1月19日头版。联邦调查局,今日,对金融界的内部交易问题再出重手。 联邦调查局逮捕新的内部交易嫌疑人 这则新闻,成为《 华尔街日报》关注的头条。据报道，联邦调查局近日,在纽约、波士顿和加州等地,连续逮捕了4位从事内部交易的高级别人士。纽约的联邦检举人指出，这些人,基本上,是设立了一个犯罪俱乐部，互相提供交易信息上的帮助。调查人员指出，这些公司的交易员,通过互相交换信息，共获得6100万美元的非法收入。这个数字,可以和去年逮捕的金帆船创始人拉吉相媲美。拉吉被判处11年入狱，创了内部交易罪的记录。 CHEN MR.TEXT: 0086-13901623260; firstname.lastname@example.org CHEN MR.TEXT: 0086-13901623260; email@example.com
