Build Back Better Act

Floor Speech

Date: Aug. 12, 2022
Location: Washington, DC


Mr. GUTHRIE. Madam Speaker, I yield myself 5 minutes.

Madam Speaker, I rise today in strong opposition to H.R. 5376, the mislabeled Inflation Reduction Act.

This is another reckless tax and spending spree that is not being accurately portrayed to the American people by Democrats.

Washington Democrats are trying to convince Americans that adding more reckless government spending and raising taxes during a recession will combat inflation. Even nonpartisan organizations say this bill will have virtually no impact on inflation and at least half of the expected tax revenue for next year is estimated to come from Americans making less than $400,000 a year.

Americans will see more IRS audits because this bill gives the IRS the ability to hire an army of new IRS agents. People should pay the taxes they owe, but instead of an army of IRS agents focusing on auditing low- to middle-income Americans, we need to put our resources into hiring more Border Patrol officers to protect the border and stop the flow of illicit drugs such as fentanyl.

More troubling parts of this bill are the healthcare provisions. I strongly disagree with using Medicare money to pay for ObamaCare subsidies for the wealthy. I introduced an amendment to keep Medicare savings in Medicare, which is already at risk of insolvency in the very near future. Unfortunately, House Democrats didn't even give this amendment a chance to be considered.

While Democrats praise government price setting, or, as they call it, negotiation, they fail to mention that such policies would lead to at least 15 fewer drugs coming to market, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

What are the 15 cures? Could it be the cure for Alzheimer's? Could it be the cure for diabetes? It could be.

They also won't mention that the nonpartisan CBO said this bill will lead to higher prices on new drugs.

Finally, Democrats are voting to give Secretary Becerra a $3 billion slush fund to set drug prices, despite HHS botching the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including politicizing guidance that kept schools closed and young children masked in Head Start programs.

How can anyone support giving billions of dollars in more unrestricted authority to HHS that we know will lead to fewer cures for our loved ones?

Let me be clear: We absolutely need to address the cost of prescription medication. In the Energy and Commerce Committee, there is a bipartisan bill ready to go, H.R. 19, that could achieve this, but the Democrats have repeatedly refused to bring the bill to the floor for a vote.

Our country is also facing an energy crisis created by President Biden and Washington Democrats' war on American energy. Despite this, the Democrats' solution is to double down on the nearly $400 billion to be spent on far-left Green New Deal policies and impose billions of dollars of tax increases on energy that will be passed to consumers.

Unbelievably, even as energy prices are at historically high levels, they have included a new tax on natural gas and revived a tax on petroleum products that will cost consumers tens of billions of dollars.

I filed an amendment to exempt our defense bases from this natural gas tax, but again, Democrats refused even to consider it.

Democrats want to create a $27 billion slush fund at the EPA for a national climate bank to subsidize the solar energy that is heavily dominated by the Chinese Communist Party and even spend $9 billion in rebates for wealthy Americans to green up their homes with new appliances and electric vehicles.

To conclude, this legislation not only crushes hope for patients and their families living with devastating diseases that currently lack a treatment or a cure, but it also significantly undermines our economic and national security.

I cannot vote for the more appropriately named inflation expansion act.


Mr. GUTHRIE. Madam Speaker, I yield 2 minutes to the gentleman from Michigan (Mr. Upton), the chair emeritus of the Committee on Energy and Commerce, who is retiring. We are going to miss him.

Mr. GUTHRIE. Madam Speaker, I yield 3 minutes to the gentleman from Texas (Mr. Burgess), my good friend on the Committee on Energy and Commerce.


Mr. GUTHRIE. Madam Speaker, I include in the Record an editorial from The Wall Street Journal titled, ``Tilting at Climate Windmills,'' which notes that the massive spending bill reduces global temperatures at the most by 0.28 degrees. [From the Wall Street Journal] Tilting at Climate Windmills Shumer-Manchin will have little effect on the world's temperature (By Editorial Board)

Nearly all of Washington--Democrats, the press, lobbyists-- is taking a victory lap with Senate passage of the Schumer- Manchin tax, climate and drug price control bill. The climate lobby is especially thrilled, claiming a historic victory that will reduce temperatures, hold back the rising sea, and save the planet.

Or, maybe not. Our contributor Bjorn Lomborg looked at the Rhodium Group estimate for CO2 emissions reductions from Schumer-Manchin policies. He then plugged them into the United Nations climate model to measure the impact on global temperature by 2100. He finds the bill will reduce the estimated global temperature rise at the end of this century by all of 0.028 degrees Fahrenheit in the optimistic case. In the pessimistic case, the temperature difference will be 0.0009 degrees Fahrenheit.

In other words, the climate provisions in this ballyhooed legislation will have no notable impact on the climate.

This isn't surprising. No matter what the U.S. does to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, it will be dwarfed by what the rest of the world does. China, India and Africa aren't about to stop burning fossil fuels as they develop, and China is sprinting ahead to build huge new coal capacity despite its pledge to start reducing emissions after 2030.

Barring a breakthrough in battery or other technology, carbon emissions will continue to increase. No one knows how much the Earth's temperature will warm, though even the U.N. model has modified its estimates from the apocalyptic predictions of some years ago.

Schumer-Manchin won't reduce inflation, won't reduce the budget deficit, and it won't reduce the world's temperature. What it will do is transfer some $369 billion from taxpayers and drug companies to the pockets of green energy businesses and investors. It will tighten the hold that politicians have on the allocation of capital, as they pick winners and losers with their grants and tax credits. Everyone will get a nice warm feeling as they pretend they are cooling the climate.


Mr. GUTHRIE. This bill will not do what those on the floor today have said it will do.

Madam Speaker, I yield 2 minutes to the gentlewoman from Iowa (Mrs. Miller-Meeks).

Mr. GUTHRIE. Madam Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

This bill drives a massive build-out of unreliable wind and solar power, not nuclear, not natural gas, and not baseload power.

I include in the Record a report from the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, the authority on electric reliability, which underscores the risk of blackouts from the oversupply of weather- dependent energy. [From North American Electric Reliability Corporation, May 2022] 2022 Summer Reliability Assessment Key Findings

NERC's annual SRA covers the upcoming four-month (June- September) summer period. This assessment provides an evaluation of generation resource and transmission system adequacy and energy sufficiency to meet projected summer peak demands and operating reserves This assessment identifies potential reliability issues of interest and regional topics of concern. While the scope of this seasonal assessment is focused on the upcoming summer, the key findings are consistent with risks and issues that NERC has highlighted in the 2021 Long-Term Reliability Assessment and other earlier reliability assessments and reports.

The following findings are NERC and the ERO Enterprise's independent evaluation of electricity generation and transmission capacity and potential operational concerns that may need to be addressed for the 2022 summer. Summer Resource Adequacy Assessment and Energy Risk Analysis

Midcontinent ISO (MISO) faces a capacity shortfall in its North and Central areas, resulting in high risk of energy emergencies during peak summer conditions. Capacity shortfall projections reported in the 2021 LTRA and as far back as the 2018 LTRA have continued Load serving entities in 4 of 11 zones entered the annual planning resource auction (PRA) in April 2022 without enough owned or contracted capacity to cover their requirements. Across MISO, peak demand projections have increased by 1.7 percent since last summer due in part to a return to normal demand patterns that have been altered in prior years by the pandemic. However, more impactful is the drop in capacity in the most recent PRA: MISO will have 3,200 MW (2.3 percent) less generation capacity than in the summer of 2021. System operators in MISO are more likely to need operating mitigations, such as load modifying resources or non-firm imports, to meet reserve requirements under normal peak summer conditions. More extreme temperatures, higher generation outages, or low wind conditions expose the MISO North and Central areas to higher risk of temporary operator-initiated load shedding to maintain system reliability.

At the start of the summer, a key transmission line connecting MISO's northern and southern areas will be out of service. Restoration continues on a 4-mile section of 500 kV transmission line that was damaged by a tornado during severe storms on December 10, 2021. The transmission outage affects 1,000 MW of firm transfers between the Midwestern and Southern MISO system that includes parts of Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. The transmission line is expected to be restored at the end of June 2022.

Anticipated resource capacity in Saskatchewan will be strained to meet peak demand projections, which have risen by over 7.5 percent since 2021. SaskPower is projected to remain above their planning reserve margin threshold and have sufficient operating reserves for normal peak conditions. However, external assistance is expected to be needed in extreme conditions that cause above-normal generator outages or demand.

Drought conditions create heightened reliability risk for the summer. Drought exists or threatens wide areas of North America, resulting in unique challenges to area electricity supplies and potential impacts on demand:

Energy output from hydro generators throughout most of the Western United States is being affected by widespread drought and below-normal snowpack. Dry hydrological conditions threaten the availability of hydroelectricity for transfers throughout the Western Interconnection. Some assessment areas, including WECC's California-Mexico (CA/MX) and Southwest Reserve Sharing Group (SRSG), depend on substantial electricity imports to meet demand on hot summer evenings and other times when variable energy resource (e.g., wind, solar) output is diminishing. In the event of wide-area extreme heat event, all U.S. assessment areas in the Western Interconnection are at risk of energy emergencies due to the limited supply of electricity available for transfer.

Extreme drought across much of Texas can produce weather conditions that are favorable to prolonged, wide-area heat events and extreme peak electricity demand. Resource additions to the ERCOT system in recent years-predominantly solar and some wind--have raised Anticipated Reserve Margins above Reference Margin Levels and ease concerns of capacity shortfalls for normal peak demand. However, extreme heat increases peak demand and can be accompanied by weather patterns that lead to increased forced outages or reduced energy output from resources of all types. A combination of extreme peak demand, low wind, and high outage rates from thermal generators could require system operators to use emergency procedures, up to and including temporary manual load shedding.

As drought conditions continue over the Missouri River Basin, output from thermal generators that use the Missouri River for cooling in Southwest Power Pool (SPP) may be affected in summer months. Low water levels in the river can impact generators with once-through cooling and lead to reduced output capacity. Energy output from hydro generators on the river can also be affected by drought conservation measures implemented in the reservoir system. Outages and reduced output from thermal and hydro generation could lead to energy shortfalls at peak demand. Periods of above normal wind generator output may give some relief, however, this energy is not assured. System operators could require emergency procedures to meet peak demand during periods of high generator unavailability.

All other areas have sufficient resources to manage normal summer peak demand and are at low risk of energy shortfalls from more extreme demand or generation outage conditions. Anticipated Reserve Margins meet or surpass the Reference Margin Level, indicating that planned resources in these areas are adequate to manage the risk of a capacity deficiency under normal conditions. Furthermore, based on risk scenario analysis in these areas, resources and energy appear adequate. Other Reliability Issues for Summer

Supply chain issues and commissioning challenges on new resource and transmission projects are a concern in areas where completion is needed for reliability during summer peak periods. Assessment areas report that some generation and transmission projects are being impacted by product unavailability, shipping delays, and labor shortages. At the time of this assessment publication, WECC-CA/MX, and WECC- SRSG have sizeable amounts of generation capacity in development and included in their resource projections for summer. In Texas (ERCOT), transmission expansion projects are underway to alleviate transmission constraints and maintain system stability as the BPS is adapted to rapid growth in new generation; delays or cancellations of transmission projects can cause transmission system congestion during peak conditions and affect the ability to serve load in localized areas. Should project delays emerge, affected Generator Owners (GOs) and Transmission Owners must communicate changes to Balancing Authorities (BAs), Transmission Operators, and Reliability Coordinators, so that impacts are understood and steps are taken to reduce risks of capacity deficiencies or energy shortfalls.

Coal-fired GOs are having difficulty obtaining fuel and non-fuel consumables as supply chains are stressed. No specific BPS reliability impacts are currently foreseen; however, coal stockpiles at power plants are relatively low compared to historical levels. Some owners and operators report challenges in arranging replenishment due to mine closures, rail shipping limitations, and increased coal exports. Some GOs have implemented controls to maintain sufficient stocks for peak months while BAs and Reliability Coordinators are continuing to conduct fuel surveys and monitoring the situation.

The electricity and other critical infrastructure sectors face cyber security threats from Russia and other potential actors amid heightened geopolitical tensions in addition to ongoing cyber risks. Russian attackers may be planning or attempting malicious cyber activity to gain access and disrupt the electric grid in North America in retaliation for support to Ukraine. The Electricity Infrastructure Sharing and Analysis Center (E-ISAC) continues to exchange information with its members and has posted communications and guidance from government partners and other advisories on its Portal. E-ISAC members are encouraged to check in regularly to receive updates and to actively share information regarding threats and other malicious activities with the E-ISAC to enable broader communication with other sector participants and government partners.

Unexpected tripping of solar photovoltaic

(PV) resources during grid disturbances continues to be a reliability concern. In May and June 2021, the Texas Interconnection experienced widespread solar PV loss events like those previously observed in the California area. Similarly, four additional solar PV loss events occurred between June and August 2021 in California.

Mr. GUTHRIE. Madam Speaker, I yield 2 minutes to the gentleman from Texas (Mr. Pfluger).

Mr. GUTHRIE. Madam Speaker, I include in the Record a Bloomberg News story reporting how power costs are already forcing U.S. factories to shut down, featuring an aluminum mill in my district, in Hawesville, Kentucky.

This underscores the risk to our Nation's competitiveness that these policies bring about, and this bill will not do what those on the floor say that it will do. [From Bloomberg News, July 7, 2022] The US Industrial Complex Is Starting To Buckle From High Power Costs (By Joe Deaux and Naureen S Malik)

It was only a matter of time, really.

Europe's fertilizer plants, steel mills, and chemical manufacturers were the first to succumb. Massive paper mills, soybean processors, and electronics factories in Asia went dark.

Now soaring natural gas and electricity prices are starting to hit the US industrial complex.

On June 22, 600 workers at the second-largest aluminum mill in America, accounting for 20 percent of US supply, learned they were losing their jobs because the plant can't afford an electricity tab that's tripled in a matter of months. Century Aluminum Co. says it'll idle the Hawesville, Kentucky, mill for as long as a year, taking out the biggest of its three US sites. A shutdown like this can take a month as workers carefully swirl the molten metal into storage so it doesn't solidify in pipes and vessels and turn the entire facility into a useless brick. Restarting takes another six to nine months. For this reason, owners don't halt operations unless they've exhausted all other options.

It's the most poignant signal yet of what's to come-but not the only one.

At least two steel mills have begun suspending some operations to cut energy costs, according to one industry executive, who asked not to be identified because the information isn't public. In May, a group of factories across the US Midwest warned federal energy regulators that some were on the verge of closing for the summer or longer because of what they described as ``unjust and unreasonable'' electricity costs. They asked to be wholly absolved of some power fees-a request that, if granted, would be unprecedented.

It's no wonder. By the beginning of June, natural gas prices had tripled what they were a year earlier, threatening households and businesses alike with some of the biggest utility bills they've ever seen. This summer, electricity rates for industrial customers are set to hit their highest levels ever, based on US government forecasts. Because US plants and factories depend on both electricity and gas, this could very well be the moment the rug's pulled out from under American industry.

Manufacturing overtime hours have already declined for three straight months, the longest downward stretch since 2015, and a measure of US manufacturing activity weakened in June to a two-year low as new orders contracted. A week after Century's announcement, the nation's largest aluminum producer Alcoa Corp. said it's closing a third of its production at a mill in Indiana because of ``operational challenges.''

These headwinds could eventually threaten what some see as a longer-term boom in US manufacturing as corporations look to reduce their dependence on China. Executives are highlighting plans to relocate production at a greater clip this year than they even did in the first six months of the pandemic, but energy and labor costs will pose challenges for any company looking to build a new operation in the US.

Manufacturing isn't the bellwether of the US economy it once was. The plants that 70 years ago employed more than a third of the nation's labor force now account for about 8 percent of nonfarm workers. An industrial downturn on its own won't tip us into a recession, but it could if combined with weakness in other sectors. While the might of American industry has significantly weakened over the years, it still accounts for more than a tenth of US gross domestic product- and for that reason holds an outsize place in the hearts of politicians whose factory visits are a perennial staple of campaigns.

Plants will try to operate more efficiently to lower their utility bills, but there are limits to how much they can save. In a lot of regions, industrial users aren't just paying for the power they use; they're also paying for what's known as capacity, essentially an insurance policy that keeps enough power on the grid for the most extreme of demand days. (Think hot summer days when everyone's air conditioners are blasting.) And with wholesale energy prices near the highest levels since 2008 and aging power plants shutting, those insurance premiums are growing exponentially, particularly in the middle of the country where much of the country's industrial operations lie.

One potential bright spot, or an indication of how desperate industrial companies are becoming: Some are partnering with startups to explore alternative energy sources: Nature Energy says it expects to start building facilities this year to collect and convert cow dung and crop waste into renewable natural gas. Power Edison, which is proposing to stack massive batteries on barges that can be shipped around to customers in need, is attracting more attention.

As Katie Coleman, an attorney for Texas Association of Manufacturers, puts it, her members have three big cost drivers: taxes, electricity, and labor. Those three vary in proportion over time, she says, ``but right now, electricity is an even larger factor than normal.'' Some companies with multiple factories are trying to decide which plants to keep running this summer based on how cheap they can get their electricity, she says, and some may decide which to permanently close. Such is the case for Century, which will keep operations running in Iceland where power is incredibly cheap because of local renewable energy resources.

There is a lot to blame for this year's surge in US energy prices: Russia's invasion of Ukraine; the ensuing surge in US natural gas exports to markets overseas; extreme weather brought on by climate change; aging fossil-fuel-fired power plants retiring at a record pace. They're all coinciding with a sharp rebound in post-pandemic demand.

One group of manufacturers will say they told us so. The Industrial Energy Consumers of America has been calling on the Biden administration for months to limit the amount of gas US energy suppliers send overseas, warning that exports would eventually lead to supply shortages at home. But a measure like that would set a dangerous precedent and threaten the billions of dollar of investments in liquefied natural gas terminals along US shores. Shipments overseas have so far remained unfettered.

How severe of an industrial downturn we're heading into depends on a lot of variables -chief among them being how long energy prices remain high. Milder weather, fewer power plant disruptions, and more solar and wind farm deployments could shift the natural gas market back into an era of lower prices and improve the fortunes of manufacturers. Today, we are far from that.

Michael Harris, whose firm Unified Energy Services LLC buys fuel for industrial clients, says costs have risen so high that some are having to put millions of dollars of credit on the line to secure power and gas contracts. ``That can be devastating for a corporation,'' he says. ``I don't see any scenario, absent explosions at US LNG facilities'' that trap supplies at home, in which gas prices are headed lower in the long term.


Mr. GUTHRIE. Madam Speaker, I yield 2 minutes to the gentleman from Georgia (Mr. Carter).

Mr. GUTHRIE. Madam Speaker, I yield 2 minutes to the gentleman from Ohio (Mr. Balderson).

Mr. GUTHRIE. Madam Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

Madam Speaker, there is nothing in the bill that increases our production of natural gas. The Methane Emissions Reduction Program is a natural gas tax that will impact the entire economy. The natural gas tax will make everything more expensive for American families. The natural gas tax will increase the price of fuel, fertilizer, and food.

Madam Speaker, 180 million Americans use natural gas to heat homes and run appliances. About 5\1/2\ million businesses use it to run their workplaces and manufacturing facilities.

This bill will give EPA sweeping authority to expand the natural gas tax to other sectors, including agriculture. There are no guardrails to prevent the EPA from ratcheting up the natural gas tax in years ahead.

Madam Speaker, I yield 2\1/2\ minutes to the gentlewoman from the State of Tennessee (Mrs. Harshbarger).


Mr. GUTHRIE. Madam Speaker, I yield 1 minute to the gentleman from California (Mr. McCarthy), who is one of my good friends here in Congress, a great leader, and the Republican leader in the House of Representatives.


Mr. GUTHRIE. Madam Speaker, on that I demand the yeas and nays.
