U.S. President Barack Obama says in his meetings with congressional members this week about the political stalemate on government funding and borrowing that there was one agreement: "the need to avoid the economic consequences of not meeting [the] country's commitments."

美国总统奥巴马在同国会成员就有关政府开支和借款政治僵局举行的会晤中表示,双方的共识是:需要避免美国不能履行承诺而带来的经济后果。

The president said in his weekly address Saturday damage to the country's "sterling credit rating" would make it more expensive for everyone in America to borrow money, creating what would amount to what he called a "Republican default tax on every family and business in America." He said a default would also have a detrimental effect on global markets.

奥巴马总统在星期六每周例行讲话中说,对美国“主权信誉评级”的损害将使每个美国人的借款变得更加昂贵,由此美国的每个家庭和企业都要承担他所说的“共和党违约税”。奥巴马说,债务违约还将对全球市场带来破坏性影响。

However, White House officials said Friday there is still no agreement with Republicans on how to end the stalemate. Both sides have agreed to keep talking.

然而,白宫官员星期五说,白宫仍然没有跟共和党人就如何结束僵局达成协议。共和与民主两党双方同意继续磋商。

House Armed Services chairman Buck McKeon, who delivered the Republican address, said the two sides had found "common ground" this week with legislation supporting the military and their families during the shutdown, and now should continue to work out more agreements.

众议院军事委员会主席巴克?麦基翁在代表共和党的讲话中表示,双方本星期曾经在政府关闭期间为军队和军人家属提供保障的立法中找到了“共同点”,现在双方应该致力于达成更多的协议。

Meanwhile, three of the most famous U.S. national parks - the Statue of Liberty, the Grand Canyon and Mount Rushmore - have announced they will reopen in the coming days after state governors reached deals with the federal government, despite the ongoing government shutdown. The states have agreed to provide the money needed to operate the parks.

与此同时,三处美国最著名的国家公园,自由女神像、大峡谷和拉什莫尔山宣布将在几天内重新开放。此前,三家国家公园所在的相关各州州长,在政府部分关闭的情况下跟联邦政府达成协议,各州同意为上述三个国家公园的运转提供所需资金。
