The US on Thursday introduced an economic stimulus package that would, if approved, give each US citizen US$1,200 and each child US$500, Lo said. Premier Su Tseng-chang, foreground, delivers the government’s general policy report during an interpellation session with Cabinet members at the Legislative Yuan in Taipei yesterday. The government is rich, so it should be able to roll out more generous stimulus packages, he said. The government hopes to improve on the former administration’s policy by using a different approach, one that incentivizes people to go shopping, Su said. Other KMT lawmakers who had signed up to speak at the beginning of the meeting clamored for more generous stimulus packages.
