Tsai's Stimulous Voucher Program Blasted by Public|振興券7月15日上路 下週二說明具體辦法

Former President Ma Ying-jeou criticizes the Tsai Administration over its stimulus package, saying the current government didn't issue vouchers directly because it was first created by his administration. In response, Premier Su Tseng-chang said the Ma administration's consumer vouchers did nothing to help the economy and the Tsai administration simply doesn't want to make the same mistake. As public criticism has been pouring in, Ministry of Economic Affairs says more details regarding the stimulus package will be announced on June 2.

The public is criticizing the Tsai administration for not only refusing to distribute cash subsidies, but also not distributing stimulus vouchers until July 15. Former President Ma Ying-jeou says the Tsai administration has dragged its feet on voucher distribution because vouchers were an initiative first used in his administration. In response, Premier Su Tseng-chang claimed the Ma administration's consumer vouchers did absolutely nothing for economic growth and said the Tsai administration refuses to make the same mistake.

Ma Ying-jeou's consumer vouchers were evaluated by the Control Yuan. The Control Yuan decided they did not help economic growth at all. We are keeping this lesson in mind so we don't make the same mistake.

Both ruling and opposition lawmakers say not distributing the vouchers until July is too little, too late. In addition, pan-blue lawmakers said Ma's consumer vouchers are a thorn in the DPP's side and called on the DPP to stop putting politics over the economy. According to reports, the stimulus vouchers will come in two forms, paper and electronic. Citizens will have to shell out NT$1,000 to get a NT$3,000 paper voucher, which can only be used at post offices and convenience stores. E-vouchers will require NT$3,000 spending to get NT$2,000 back.

(Tsai's) stimulus vouchers are nothing more than discounted consumer vouchers. There's no way they will be effective. We are still hoping for cash distributions.

Even we think it's too little, too late. We have distributed a lot of stimulus cash. As for stimulating the economy, these stimulus vouchers will definitely have a multiplier effect.

The Executive Yuan will make a public announcement around next Tuesday.

Public criticism has been pouring in. The Executive Yuan will have Su explain relevant details to the public on June 2.

振興券預期7月15上路,但外界批評發放時機太慢、為何不發現金有所質疑。前總統馬英九28號更喊話,不要因消費券是他任內發的就不做,現在改還來得及。行政院長蘇貞昌29號出席立法院施政報告,認為馬政府時期的消費券對經濟成長沒幫助,拒絕重蹈馬英九覆轍。

行政院長 蘇貞昌表示:「馬英九發的消費券,被監察院特別事後審核的時候,已經明白指出來它的替代性夠高,對經濟成長沒幫助,所以我們記取這個教訓,不再重蹈覆轍。」

朝野藍綠立委都認為七月才發振興券太遲,藍營立委更批評,馬英九的消費券是民進黨心魔,呼籲趕快拚經濟不要再想政治的事。行政院預計振興券規模將破四百億元,據平面媒體報導,振興券分成實體券與電子版兩部分,實體券可在郵局超商購買,民眾支付一千元可獲得三千元面額;電子版支付,擬累積消費滿三千元,送二千元回饋。

國民黨立委 曾銘宗表示:「現在設計的振興券,就像是打折的消費券,所以效果一定不好,所以我們希望他發現金。」

民進黨立委 許智傑表示:「我自己也覺得晚了點,我們也在紓困方面,發了很多現金。至於振興經濟,這個振興券的確有倍增乘數作用。」

經濟部長 沈榮津表示:「大概我們下禮拜二,行政院就會對外來宣布。」

針對外界各種質疑聲浪,行政院預計下週二再由蘇貞昌親上火線說明,振興券具體實施辦法。
