From the Democratic Senators cheat-sheet regarding the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022:

  1. American Energy Security and Domestic Manufacturing

This bill will support energy reliability and cleaner energy production coupled with historic investments in American clean energy manufacturing. It includes over $60 billion to on-shore clean energy manufacturing in the U.S. across the full supply chain of clean energy and transportation technologies. These manufacturing incentives will help alleviate inflation and reduce the risk of future price shocks by bringing down the cost of clean energy and clean vehicles and relieving supply chain bottlenecks.

  • Production tax credits to accelerate U.S. manufacturing of solar panels, wind turbines, batteries, and critical minerals processing, estimated to invest $30 billion.
  • $10 billion investment tax credit to build clean technology manufacturing facilities, like facilities that make electric vehicles, wind turbines and solar panels
  • $500 million in the Defense Production Act for heat pumps and critical minerals processing
  • $2 billion in grants to retool existing auto manufacturing facilities to manufacture clean vehicles, ensuring that auto manufacturing jobs stay in the communities that depend on them.

The Washington Post said this morning that the House is expected to pass the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 today.

House Democrats on Friday are expected to approve a sweeping package to lower health-care costs, combat climate change, raise taxes on some large companies and reduce the deficit, sending the once-imperiled proposal to President Biden’s desk.

With debate set to begin in the morning, and a vote on passage likely later in the afternoon, the chamber is on track to deliver for Democrats a major legislative victory — one that party lawmakers already have touted on the campaign trail in a bid to protect and expand their majorities in this year’s midterm elections.

The Democratic Senators cheat-sheet for “health insurance” is one-page long

The summary cheat-sheet is also just one-page, but says in the chart “64 billion**” across from “affordable care act extension”.

The cheat-sheet graph above has changed from the original I posted sometime last week…

This is an Open Thread.

Happy Friday, everyone. I’ll see you Monday (or later today if the warrant is released!)
