Last month, after the US Congress passed the US $ 2.2 trillion economic stimulus bill, a new Coronary Pneumonia Relief Bill inspection team composed of 10 inspectors was established to audit and investigate the implementation of the bill. On March 30, the White House forwarded a congressional statement on its official website that Pentagon Inspector General Glenn Fein will be the leader of the New Coronary Pneumonia Relief Act Inspectorate Group.
But just over a week later, Glenn Fein was fired from the White House. This also means that at the same time he will no longer lead the New Coronary Pneumonia Relief Act Oversight Group and will not be able to continue to supervise the White House ’s implementation of the “2 trillion dollar bill”.
The United States also has a monitoring system to supervise the executive capacity of administrative agencies. According to the website of the Office of the Inspector General of the United States Division, the Inspector General is appointed by the President based on the recommendations and consent of the Senate, and is responsible to and reports to the President and Congress. The Inspector General is mainly responsible for two aspects:

The monitoring is frightened. ”Carolyn Maloney, chairman of the Democratic House of Representatives’ Regulatory and Reform Committee, believes that “whether it ’s a Democrat taxpayer or a Republican taxpayer, Trump ’s behavior is one of them. Direct insults. Taxpayers want to make sure that their money will not be wasted and will not be spent on political struggles. ”
The position of the leader of the New Crown Pneumonia Relief Act Inspectorate Group will be temporarily provided by the US Environmental Protection Agency Inspector General Sean Odonell replace. The New York Times quoted a source as saying that Odonell, who has two roles, may not be able to take care of the supervision of both ends.
In addition to overseeing how the White House spends the $ 2.2 trillion, Odonell ’s job is also arduous: the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under this administration continuously lowers its emissions standards. O’Donnell just wrote a report on March 31, saying that residents near factories that emit ethylene oxide are now facing the risk of exposure to carcinogenic chemicals, accusing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency of not fulfilling its obligation to notify the public.
