【大纪元2011年08月12日讯】(大纪元记者陈怡莲报导)最近,《南方都市报》发表社论,揭露中共政府多年实行假“低保”,让城镇贫困人口持续上升。指政府不是按照城镇贫困人口的实际数量发放“低保”,而是根据上面下达的指标和“关系”发放。有专家估计,中国实际贫困人数已超过一亿五千万。

–>中国城镇贫困人口半数处于无低保状态

该社论《贫困人口长期上升,政府责任尤须强调》中说,8月3日,中国社科院发布《中国城市发展报告No.4》,称中国城镇贫困人口数约为5000万人,这是城市贫困人口数量自20世纪90年代后不断上升的结果。

文章还说,虽然其表面原因是“物价的不断上涨、社会保障措施的不力、房价的频频攀升、就业形势的严峻、贫富差距的不断扩大使越来越多的城市人口陷入相对贫困之中”,但根本症结却是政府长期实行假“低保
”政策。

同时透露,政府不是按照城镇贫困人口的实际数量发放“低保 ”,而是根据上面下达的指标和“关系 ”亲疏才有。这一“低保腐败
”导致中国的城镇贫困人口中起码有一半处于无低保状态。

另有全国政协委员提交提案表示,中共政府过低的贫困线,实际上令到过亿的居民“被脱贫”。如果按目前国际平均每天最低消费1.25美元计算,估计中国城镇的贫困人口至少有一亿五千万人。

“县镇政府处处截留扣克资金”

大纪元记者从几位城乡居民中了解到,得到低保的人尽管也属于比较贫穷,但如果不是当地政府官员的亲朋好友是享受不到低保的。

广西柳州市雒容镇双仁屯的农民陈庆龙,因父母身体不好,干不了活,在二三年前曾得到过200多元的一笔低保款,之后就再也没有了。

他向大纪元表示,他们那里的低保是虚的。“本来我家是低保户的,但是现在不给了。我也不知道是何什么原因。说我家已经不属于低保户了。”

他说,因为村里已经征地了,就取消了低保。就是在以前我们这个小组也只是2~3户有低保。别说是低保,现在就是种田的补贴款,按标准每亩应该是100多元,但是到我们手里也就是60元。

浙江省诸暨市陶朱街道红联新村姓朱的村民说:“我们这里低保很少,只有五六户有低保,每月每人是180元。”

“这些个得低保的人困难是有,但是这种困难在我们这里多的是,一大片。还许多比他们还要困难的家庭没有得到低保。如果不是当地政府官员的朋友或者亲戚也是轮不到他们的。”

江苏省沛县沛城镇居民周先生表示,低保这块钱政府给的得比较少,每月就是70元。

他认为,现在县、镇政府处处截留、扣克资金。“以前是县长才有车,现在一个小股长都配有专车。现在他们这里吃喝嫖赌的腐败现象很严重,如果政府官员节省一点,低保可能会更多一点。”

“现在这个物价这么高,这么点低保起不了什么作用了。有它过年,没有它也要过年。”

无锡市的王女士表示,一般的人是得不到的这个低保的,有关系才能得到。“低保在我们这里很少,还是高兴了就给你,不高兴就不给,没有保障的,是他们说了算。有一些人在拆迁以前是有低保的,因为不同意拆迁,低保就被停发了。”

发放低保乱象

有一网友说,什么低保吧!最穷的人没得到,倒让当官的亲戚占了便宜。

2011
年3月,江西省宁都县梅江镇一居民在网上举报低保从07年开始被拖延、扣克:“我是完全符合各项条件的,为什么拖延、扣克国家给予我应得的低保时间及金额,现我一家四口每月民政部门发放的仅为600元,我夫妻俩都是双目失明的残疾人,且我膝下一对儿女皆不满十岁的幼儿。”

据华商报2010年8月报导,镇安县米粮镇红卫村妇女主任何文菊,2009年被镇上评为种菜产业大户。然而,有人却发现,当地民政网上显示她在领低保。对此,镇干部解释,这是为了弥补雪灾造成的损失;而何文菊则说,“我也就是背了个名,自己根本没有拿过钱”。

In China, Welfare Depends on How Officials Feel

It’s more about who you know than how poor you are

Receiving welfare in China is more about who you know than
how poor you are. (Guang Niu/Getty Images)

A low-income subsidy program was supposed
to have been implemented across China for years now, but many of the urban poor
have never heard of it.

That could have something to do with the fact
that the subsidy is not allotted according to real poverty levels, but based on
quotas from the upper echelon of the regime, and is distributed to a favored
few, according to recent editorial in Southern Metropolis Daily.

The
editorial, titled “Steady rise of the urban poor emphasizes the government’s
responsibility,” said that although the rise of the urban poor could be
attributed to inflation, lack of social
welfare programs, rise in housing costs, unemployment, and a growing gap between the rich and the
poor, the fundamental reason is, however, the failure of the low-income subsidy
program.

It said that instead of allotting subsidies according to the
actual number of those living below the poverty line, the government is
distributing the subsidy based on quotas set by the high-level officials and
their relatives. As a result, more than half of the urban poor receive no
subsidy.

Xinhua, the
official mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party, also reported in April that
during the meetings of the National People’s Congress and the Chinese People’s
Political Consultative Conference, some representatives argued that the poverty
line was set artificially low.

Using the internationally recognized
poverty line standard of US$1.25 per person per day, at least 150 million urban
residents are estimated to be living in
poverty. http://news.cn0917.com/2011/0418/44059.html

Interviews conducted
by The Epoch Times in many Chinese towns reveal that only relatives and friends
of local government officials ever obtainlow-income subsidies.

Chen
Qinglong from Shuangrentun in Luorong Township, Liuzhou City, Guangxi Province
said that his parents were unable to work due to poor health. Two or three years
ago, they received over 200 yuan just once, but nothing else since
then.

He said that the low-income subsidy program only exists in paper in
his area. “Initially our family was designated as a low-income family. However,
the subsidy was stopped. I don’t know why. They said we were no longer
considered a low-income family.”

He said when the village government finished acquiring land, they canceled the
low-income subsidy program. “Even when it was in operation, only two or three
families in my area were receiving it. Now even farming subsidies have been
stopped. The standard farming subsidy is supposed to be more than 100 yuan per
month. But we only receive about 60 yuan.”

Zhu, a farmer from Honglianxin
Village, Zhuji City, Zhejiang Province, said that there were only five or six
designated low-income families in his area. The monthly subsidy is 180 yuan per
person.
“Those who receive the subsidy are indeed poor. However, there are
many more equally poor and even poorer who do not receive any subsidy. The
criterion to receive subsidy seems to be having contacts in the local government office,” said Zhu.

Zhou from Peicheng
Township, Pei County, Jiangsu Province said that the low-income subsidy is only
70 yuan per month in his area.

He believes that a part of the money was
embezzled by the county and township government. “Earlier, only the county
administrator used to have a government car. Now even a division chief has a
government car. The level of corruption here is very high. The officials eat,
drink, gamble, and visit prostitutes. If the government officials were less
extravagant, we might have been given morelow-income subsidies.”

Ms.
Wang from Wuxi City, Jiangsu Province, said that only those with close relatives
in the government could receive subsidies. “The government gives out very
fewlow-income subsidies in my area. They give it at will, depending on their
mood. There is no guarantee – it’s whenever they feel like it. Some people used
to receivelow-income subsidy before. However, because they protested when their
houses were taken and demolished by the government, their subsidy was stopped.”
