8:28 pm
they are doing courageous work saving lives every day. get vaccinated. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from pennsylvania seek recognition? >> i request unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. for one minute. mr. thompson: i rise today to address the growing crisis on our southern border. despite the rhetoric, the families and children are arieivelg at our southern border in greater numbers than in past decades. june saw 450% increase in border environs counters. i have seen more than 1.1 million illegal crossings. customs ann border patrol has seized more fentanyl than in all 2020 and higher positive
8:29 pm
activity covid-19 rates and undo the hard work. the biden border crisis is turning deadlier. and this is a direct result from the biden administration and vice president harris she claimed and the numbers don't lie and the migrants, little progress has been made. securing our borders is the first step in much needed reform and this will allow us to address that and best chance of a prosperous future. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlewoman from california seek recognition? >> i request unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. gentlewoman is recognized for one minute.
8:30 pm
>> this past year exposed deep inequities in our society but did not create them. san diego county they couldn't access child care and it has only gotten worse. it isn't enough to get back to normal. normal wasn't working. i'm proud that this week we will pass appropriation legislation that increases funding for education, health care and child care and more and $3 million for my district including funding to boost in my district and make our ball park more access i will and the package includes my request for san diego's child care expansion fund to help increase available spots for care. there is so much work to be done. and i'm grateful to be here doing it on behalf of the
8:31 pm
community i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman rise? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. lamalfa: new rules threaten the management of water. they are being cut off from water due to federal and state regulators that prioritize fish other people's needs. the california state agency is now ready to cut off water to crops in six days. mid summer, mid crop year. imagine, other halfway through the year and they just cut it off. this in favor of failed environmental policy that allows water to flow out to the sea and
8:32 pm
doing so ostensibly to help a fish pop population it is not helping. our infrastructure we're considering in d.c. needs to include water storage projects. for the american consumer, don't count on fruit and vegetable products coming from somewhere else in the world except for a much higher price. they will not get to your table with the same high quality you expect. we need water storage, we need to be included in any infrastructure bill, otherwise we all suffer as americans. this is everybody's problem. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the the gentlewoman from texas seek recognition? without objection, the gentlewoman is recognized for one minute. ms. jackson lee: mr. speaker, covid cases in america are rising. they're rising in almost 25 states. texas happens to be one of the states with the largest number
8:33 pm
of covid cases. the united states has over 31 million cases. and of course over 600,000 who have died. hospitals today in certain areas are full. and the impact, tragically, on those who are unvaccinated. but the story goes on. as we begin to enter school, children under 12 cannot be vaccinated even though research is going on. so here's my plea. to those in the 18th congressional district in houston, texas, in harris county, in texas, and in the nation, the unvaccinated should get vaccinated. the surge is creating a rise in the pandemic again. and if we are to get back to normal, find someone that you agree with that comforts you, your faith leader, you best friend, and talk about the importance of getting vaccinated. people are dying and children will become infected and/or carriers when they go back to
8:34 pm
school. everyone school should be vaccinated and yes, in the schools today, going back, you must be masked. you should wear a mask. and wear a mask inside even if you're vaccinated. we're trying to save lives. get vaccinated. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman's time has expired. ms. jackson lee: get vaccinated, it will save lives. the speaker pro tempore: under the speaker's announced policy of scwan 4, 2021, the gentleman from arizona, mr. schweikert is recognized for 60 minutes as the minority leader mr. schweikert: yes, it's one of those last names that even some family members have trouble pronouncing. may i make a parliamentary inquiry. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman will state his inquiry. mr. schweikert: just because the rules just changed, do i have to
8:35 pm
wear this thing while standing here alone, can i take it off when i'm at the mike? the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman may remove his mask when speaking, under the speaker's announced policy. mr. is wiek mr. schweikert: thank you, mr. speaker. i appreciate the clarification. i know we're all trying to get our heads around. i'd like to offer as much time as she may consume to the gentlewoman from oklahoma, she had a couple of things she wanted to share tonight and i appreciate -- i will tell you it's the first time you and i have had a chance to talk. you're really smart and incredibly charming, so the time is yours. >> thank you, mr. speaker. thank you to my colleague from arizona, i appreciate the yielding of time. i rise today to address the ongoing crisis happening at our southern border. since president biden took
8:36 pm
office he's stopped building the wall, brought back catch and release, and ended the remain in mexico policy. as a result, this administration has created the worst humanitarian, national security, and public health crisis ever seen on our nation's southern border. in the past three months, each month we've seen more than 170,000 border encounters, a new 21-year high. toe totaling over half a million illegal border crossings. these numbers are resulting in overcrowded shelters, human trafficking, drug smuggling, and violence in addition, the surge of unaccompanied children coming across the border shows no signs of slowing down. in june, the number of children arriving daily, daily, rose to 530. a journey like this is not only
8:37 pm
unsafe, as it could lead to sexual exploitation or forced labor. despite the continuing increase of border encounters each month, house democrats want to defund customs and border protection and immigration and customs enforcement by nearly $1 billion. our c.b.p., i.c.e. and d.h.s. officers have been putting their lives at risk protecting americans. calling to defund them during the worst immigration crisis in u.s. modern history is deeply troubling. mr. speaker, the open border rhetoric from the biden administration has encouraged hundreds of thousands of people to make the dangerous trek to the u.s. we must secure the border. we must protect our border cities. we must support the men and women who honorably protect our border, and we must end this
8:38 pm
heartbreaking crisis. in addition to the immigration crisis we are seeing on the southern border, we are now dealing with a covid crisis that is not being addressed. the number of individuals crossing into this country with covid has increased exponentially. these individuals are not being tested. they're not being offered vaccinations and they are being put on buses and shipped across this country. with the number of cases on the increase it is imperative that this administration addresses the border crisis issue immediately. thank you again to my colleague from arizona for yielding the time and mr. speaker, i yield back. mr. schweikert: hopefully you didn't yield back all the time. to the the gentlewoman from oklahoma, because i only got this in an alert about two hours ago, i'll send you a copy of it, aparaphernalialy we now have a
8:39 pm
whistleblower, a formal whistleblower complaint that they were being instructed, they were there to help take care of these children. and they were instructed not to disclose how many of these people in the housing unit had covid. if that's true, once again, we're back to the duplicity of what's been going on on the border. so as we talk about just what this is doing to the impact of the country, and i'm going to talk a little bit about what it does to the working poor, that might be a really interesting thing because you touched on it. this whistleblower complaint that may expose that they've been being told don't disclose the level of covid that is in this population crossing the border illegally. mrs. bice: i have not heard that. that's incredibly interesting information. i think that with the mandates
8:40 pm
that are being put in place by the administration, asking for vaccinations of federal employees, veterans administration nations of our military, how about we test and vaccinate people that are illegally coming into this country if we're going to ship them all over the u.s.? mr. schweikert: it is a great irony, isn't it? mrs. bice: it is a great irony. i appreciate this whistleblower coming forward. we're not being given accurate or timely information about what's happening on the border. mr. schweikert: what do you think the likelihood is that the democrat majority here in their constitutional oversight responsibility will take that whistleblower complaint seriously and look into the fact that, if it's true, we've been being lied to. mrs. bice: i guess that remains to be seen. mr. schweikert: all right. have a great evening. mr. speaker, we're going to do a
8:41 pm
couple of thing this is evening and try to tie it together so hopefully some of this makes sense. but i'm going to start off with just a one-off. last week, i had a gentleman knock on my front door of my home and you know, for all of us who are elected in this sort of time where things are a little anxious, it's always a bit, you stand up a bit when someone you done know is at your front door. turns out it's a really smart gentleman, he is a ph.d. in amphibians, lives down the street from me. he had something he wanted to share. this is something i didn't expect. it was a complete one-off. but he told me the story of what had happened just a couple of weeks earlier. he had this beloved dog, i'm going to psychiatry up the -- screw up the breed, i think it was a malamute, just a big, beautiful, fuzzy white dog. apparently the canine had gotten
8:42 pm
his wife's purse and chewed up some gum. i know this seems like a weird thing to do on the floor of the house but it killed the dog. turns out that, i think the more technical term is a sugar alcohol that's used, is it pronounced xylitol, that we see in certain gum products and candy products, it's an artificial sweetener. apparently it kill ours canines. so we have drafted a letter to f.d.a. and the appropriate agencies saying, is there knowledge of this? if there's knowledge of this, should there at least be some warnings? put on the packages? because i had never heard of this and then when i went to the internet and looked, there was story after store story after story after story of just heart break, people with their puppies getting some gum, getting one of
8:43 pm
these artificially sweetened candy, and dying. i guess it shuts down the liver incredibly aggressively. so as almost a public service announcement but also i'm hoping that my colleagues on the left and right, if we have to, if the f.d.a., the bureaucracy doesn't really respond to us, would be willing to do a piece of legislation creating a directive that there needs to be some sort of warning on these products that if your puppy gets loose with this it may lose its life. that's a little different than talking about economics but the gentleman was just heart broken. apparently this dog was truly one of his best friends. really important family member. and to go from being out there playing, to several hours later having him pass away, i think all of us would understand sort of the impact of that. and it's one of those, i had not
8:44 pm
heard about this. we have gum with this sweetener sitting around our house and i have a puppy coon hound that will munching on anything. you saw -- will munch on anything. you saw huh howe quickly we got that on shelves away from the dog. hopefully the f.d.a. will do something. let's talk about what's going on in our nation. it's going to be a little sarcastic and a little cranky and i'm sorry about that but i don't know how else to tell the story about what's going on in our tax policy and economic policy but the theme i want to try to weave through today and it's not being understood, i think, by either republicans or democrats, liberals or conservatives. so much of the public policy that's being pushed right now is just crushing to the working poor. we're going to do some really
8:45 pm
crappy things to the working poor and it's not necessary. there's rational economic policy, you don't kateer to certain of your activist constituencies as much but it's much more effective to helping those we say we care about here in society. so first i do this slide as often as i can, what is the greatest threat to my five-year-old daughter and your retirement? our demographics. this debt, this slide is before all the crazy spending proposals that have been produced. this is where we are structurally. as a society we are getting old really fast. think of this, in 30 years, in today's dollars -- all
8:46 pm
adjustments for inflation, we will be 101 trillion dollars in publicly bored money. only about $3 trillion of that is what you would think of as generally spending. all the rest of it is social security and medicare. medicare is about $71 trillion of board money. the spending is much larger than that but that's how much we have to bore to finance the shortfall. those who don't pay attention to this, medicare is a promise. we made that promise to american workers and retirees. but only the part a, which is the hospital portion is actually the trust fund and it is gone in three to five years. we have wiped out that money. the rest of the medicare money,
8:47 pm
when you see the doctor, it comes out of the generally fund. there is no trust fund for that spend. if we don't get serious about the holistic theory of how you save this country and economic growth and new methods to crush the price of health care, if we don't have that type of vision, these numbers become what drives all policies. if you care about environment and education, there will be no money because we will spend every dime we have just financing. the retirement promises that we have made as a government, as a society to each other. but this isn't sexy. it's really scary and hard and requires a calculator and we all
8:48 pm
work in a place that doesn't own calculateors. let's walk through a little bit of the reality that part of the solution to what we are doing to the working poor, part of the solution we are doing to these massive, massive unfunded promises is economic growth and one of my intense frustration is the amount this place is willing to, oh, yeah, lie, receipts in ways and means. remember, post-tax reform, and they got up behind these microphones. the revenues is going to collapse. what ended up happening? remember 2018.
8:49 pm
tax collection in u.s. history. what was phenomenal is it created an economic lift and so many of our brothers and sisters were working poor and the working poor became dramatically less poor. and because they are working, the trust funds we were touching on, we showed for social security and medicare and longevity because of revenues, because people were working, their lives got longer. this was the holy grail. going to try to find a way to make the numbers work and keep our promises. it turns out post-tax reform, the receipts were robust and
8:50 pm
only reason they weren't number one by a sliver, in 2015 they had timing effects when certain things happened that happened in certain fiscal years. but how often will you hear members of the majority party say well, the tax scam, which is actually a pretty dark thing to say because those couple years before the pandemic were the most robust years in modern economic times to the poor in this country and the they became let poor but you stand behind the microphone and call it a tax scam. i know it's a crappy word to use because i'm frustrated. a couple of members just this
8:51 pm
last week said 83% goes to the top 1%. that's a lie. in the "washington post," which is not really particularly friendly to those of us on the free market economic side has gotten with democrats getting behind microphones and lying, that the tax cuts gave 83% to the top 1% when the leftist newspapers are bewildered with the left not telling the truth. i i don't mind having policy arguments but don't make crap up. but we see the left-wing media are saying the post-tax reform in 2018 and 2019 were miracles years, incredible wage growth
8:52 pm
and productivity dproaght, savings growth and the populations that we claim we care about. first two years in modern economic history were income and equality really shrank. the wealthy got wealthier but the poor got less poor and closing the differential gaps. i thought that was the holy grail around here and when it happened and because it didn't happen with social engineering and big spending programs that you extort votes and creating investment in productivity so you could pay people more because villified with misinformation. and it is real hard to make honest public policy with one
8:53 pm
side doesn't own a calculator. so, to beat this a little bit more, you take a lootion fer look at what has happened to working, unmarried women. the wage growth was remarkable, just remarkable. in 2019, we had african american-american females and having 7%, 8% dproaght. some of these numbers were remarkable. and if the goal here is to make the poor less poor, i actually believe those of us on the free-market side have demonstrated where there is a path that works and it is sustainable. we are going to come back to that theme because this year we will see income inequality will
8:54 pm
shrink because of so much cash out the door. as soon as that money goes away, we go back to the bad old days and the crappy policies of the previous decade. so, let's actually walk through something we started to touch on when we opened up this. the violence and i'm going to use the term economic violence that we are committing to the poor. if you reez the geeky economic journalals and why is the left doing what they are doing. if i came to you and said tell me the number one policy spin that is going on right now that crushes the working poor and classic deficient anything is
8:55 pm
they may not have finished high school, their labor, what they sell. we have some amazingly detailed studies back when democrats believed on breaking down the borders. and remember these days when republicans were accused of being owned by the chamber of commerce and democrats were going to protect men and women when all of a sudden it seems re reversed. and this is basic economic theory instead of "v" meetings and we'll take this side. it is absurd what is going on. we have a number of studies that talk about when you flood the market with similar skill set,
8:56 pm
so you basically -- if you are part of the working poor, you sell your labor. and this is the right board. sorry. when you open up the border, we are actually looking at that reduction in wages by 6.2%. but why this is so harsh is some of the papers say it's going to last for decades. what is going on at the u.s. border right now, you are kicking in the heads of the working poor for the next decade. i know that doesn't sit the talking heads on television or rhetoric around here. but you can't say you care and then engage in policies that cash the value of their labor because you make them compete
8:57 pm
against potentially millions of those with similar skillsets. and you start to take a look at what we did this last year where are peak unemployment to those skill sets. if you are a computer programmer, this last year, crappy year, you are fine. if you can work from home, you can survive. if you are part of the population that you have not finished high school, you are in the 21 plus percent unemployment area. the very populations that were most crushed by the pandemic were kicking their heads in by opening up the border. is it compassion nature and
8:58 pm
truly loving when i get my speeches from the left and said we open up the borders to be compassion nature. how about the millions of our brothers and cyst hers here who haven't had the opportunity for those in this body have had and we are going to make them compete with the skill sets of the new arrivals. and if you look at the map of african american-americans in urban areas that you have just by this president's policies, have crushed their future earning powers and value of their labor much less. if you read the studies, we have a whole decade now of loss from where we were in 2018-2018. we just wiped out that progress and the previous several years of progress. you would think this place would
8:59 pm
actually care about things like that. no. because what's going to happen is the left's economic policies aren't, hey, we need revenues for this spending and being creative. we have come to this floor and said, if we need a trillion dollars for infrastructure, i can show you where you had a trillion dollars cut in spendening, stop subsidizing the rich, the very top 1% or flood insurance on their third home on the beach or their teslas or electric car or solar panels. this is one of the great perversity. the left wants to raids taxes on the rich and on the other hand hand it back to them on subsidies for other things they buy. and i assume this is purely
9:00 pm
political, this is hey, i'm giving you something, vote for me and tell your base, i went out and taxed the rich. but from an economic stand spoint, this is distorting and this is almost the political exploittation. don't do the economic distortion, stop spending the money out the door. and what is fascinating, i have done that speech three times on the floor and i sat down with my ways and means friends and walked them through the binder and they look at me and slug and saidion how we sell that. it shows you the perversity. thrl becomes the policy.
9:01 pm
besides the international tax we're signing on to that will make the united states one of the most uncompetitive nations in the world, we're also about to do something where raising the corporate tax in the first 24 months, we lose one million jobs. so, remember how we were talking about we need that robust economy, we need the robust labor markets, but the democrats get their tax policies just -- policies, just the corporate tax will unemploy, in the first 24 months, one million americans. so we start to take a look at -- and this is a little complex to try to do on a board and we're going to have to spend more time on it to try to explain, but this is a whole bunch of the revenue side that the democrats are proposing and this is the spending. the problem is much of the
9:02 pm
revenue here is a fraud. it's not real. i mean, so you start looking at the tax compliance. we can give you some proposals and we've been tryinger toer -- for years saying, use data -- trying for years saying, use data. you can cover much of that tax gap by using data. not hiring 80,000, think of that, 80,000, what is that, twice as many as the entire coast guard, 80,000 new unionized i.r.s. employees to go out and chase people for the taxes when you turn -- it turns out we have the super computers in your pocket. there's data out there that would let you machin stantly saying, is this person telling -- let you match instantly saying, is this person telling the truth? if this is to work the democrats have a proposal where you turn every bank account into an i.r.s. employ. you do understand if you look at the democrats' revenue proposal,
9:03 pm
my transactions, my bank balances, my in and out go to the i.r.s. you know this march towards totalitarianism is on every one of these aspects. so it's not enough to just make up fake numbers on what the revenues are going to be. the intrusive nature -- and it won't work. you'll get lots of data that you can functionally use against the american people, but it's not the data that's actually going to get you the revenues. because for those who are really rich, tomorrow will just -- we'll just move our money and currency, we'll do a crypto , we'll do that type of -- crypto, we'll do that token type of transaction and it will be the rest of the american public that gets crushed by this intrusion. so, let's actually sort of dig a little bit more into this. so it's understood that lots and lots of the experts out there,
9:04 pm
and many of these are just the columnists out there, if you look, some of them are actually on the left, are making it very clear the democrats' revenue proposals are a fraud. they're making things up. this is just some snippets of many of the articles that are out there saying, you know, they're calling it bipartisan. but there was a promise. remember the big promise from the president and speaker pelosi is, we're going to pay for these things. no, they're not. and let me show you how devious this stuff is. so, president trump a couple years ago, and many of us weren't thrilled with the model, proposed a rebate back to the consumers, so you buy a pharmaceutical, the purchasing managers in the background that buy it from the manufacturer and get it to your pharmacy they get a rebate, they take that rebate
9:05 pm
and use part of it to buy down the price of the drug and so at the retail counter you get a lower price. president trump's proposal was to take that and not buy down the price of the drug. therefore it would actually raise the drug cost a little bit to government, but the consumer would get that rebate at the retail counter. the simplest way i can describe it. this is a little complex. so this is the way it works over here. the democrats said, oh, no, we hate this. i have a whole list of quotes from speaker pelosi, the biden team saying, this will never become policy. this will never become law. it was never going to become law, how can the democrats turn around and tell us that they're going to use the money from that program as one of their pay-fors? it was like $180 billion, this is not law, it's not policy, it was a proposal, but somehow if you look at the list of the
9:06 pm
pay-fors from the left, they put $180 billion, hey, we're just going to take this fake, magical money, and we're going to use that to buy our friends. it's just -- this is the new improved way? you wonder why the american people, when they start to understand the scam that are so many of these spending tax proposals, why they're becoming so cynical. so i put up this board because i want to call it the cliff that it is. here's one of the other great scams that's in the democrats' spending proposals. how they get the scores to work. mr. speaker, may i ask for my time? the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman has 29 minutes remaining. mr. schweikert: you're very kind. i'm sorry if i sound a little cranky, but, a, i've had a lot
9:07 pm
of coffee, and as you know around here, at a certain point when you start to stack this stuff up, it just breaks your heart because we're better than the games we're playing right now. and please trust me, if the republicans were doing this, i'd be -- i have been, when we've tried doing these sorts of things, i've been every bit as aggressive. so here's the scam so the public understands this. there's things like pay-go where, hey, if a program goes more than five years, it has to be paid for. so what if you create a multimultimultibillion-dollar program and then on the fifth year you just pretend it comes to an end? hey, we're just going drop it. it doesn't really exist. wink, wink, nod, nod, we know another future congress will have to extend it because it will have a constituency, but that way when it's scored it scores within -- and we don't have to pretend that we just created another program that has no funding and therefore continues to explode that debt.
9:08 pm
this is actually what the democrats are doing in much of the spending -- and much of the spending is the creating gains. so earlier this year we made the child tax care credit extension. republicans really want to work on this because, particularly if we can target it to help the working poor, there's a much more uncomfortable conversation, but we need to have it on -- as you know the united states has a collapse in fertility rates. we actually now functionally don't have enough children to cover our debts -- deaths. oddly enough, that has a huge impact on future economic robustness. how do we make it so you can afford to have a family? so the left has actually created a thing here where it costs functionally $100 billion this year. in the proposal, it would cost $1.3 trillion to do in the way
9:09 pm
the democrats are spending the money, by the end of the -- over the 10 years. so how do they make that score work? how do they not have to say, well, just the child care credit is $1.3 trillion of spending over 10 years? they just pretend it stops. they get a few years out and then they just drop it. which, you're really going to take the populous of the united states, start sending them a check every month and then pretend it's going to stop? and that's an example, and there's bunches of these examples, as a matter of fact they did it with s. chip years ago -- schip years ago, where on the sixth year the program was just supposed to disappear and that's how they were so giddy they could get it to work with pay-go. you wonder why the public realizes this place is almost operating like scam artists. if we allowed someone outside this building to do things like that, we'd put them in jail.
9:10 pm
so, mr. speaker, there's a couple other things here. there are ways to find revenues to cover the infrastructure spending. i believe those of us on the more conservative side, we can show you places to cut spending. and therefore not create the distortions. you all saw the report, though i'm sure my brothers and sisters on the left will avoid ever saying it out loud, that the actual capital gains tax hike on its own loses $33 billion in the 10 years. that it's not until you start to do -- play games with something called bases. well, mr. speaker, you have ever thought about what a capital gains tax actually is? ok. we're going to tax you for the gain you have in your value. the profit you made. what happens when the house you
9:11 pm
is have, piece of real estate -- you have, piece of real estate, the other things you own isn't called appreciation, it's called inflation? you do realize that's actually one of the great scams going on at this moment. as your house goes up in value, as other things go up in value, and we're going to get this much larger capital gains tax, and then we're going to remove a bunch of the -- what they call the bases, we're going to cap what you can subject to the lower tax rate, you do realize we're going to tax americans on the higher price from inflation, not the actual purchasing power of it getting more valuable. let's do an example. your home. now, you're a single person, you own a home. and it goes up by a half a million dollars. you've just done an incredibly
9:12 pm
-- you've just done incredibly well. that first $250,000 of gain you get to -- it's called once if a lifetime, though, you get to use it i think, what is it, every five years, is exempt. but that other $250,000 will you have to pay capital gains taxes on. ok. how much of that gain is actually appreciation? you bought a house in the right neighborhood, you exploded in value, but the next house you're going to buy, didn't it also go up similar in value? similar in costs? was it inflation? so you will pay tax and now extraordinarily high tax rates, if the democrats get their proposals on that gain -- proposal, on that gain. it's a certain level of cruelty. the last thing i want to touch on is if our body here really, really wants to have an honest
9:13 pm
discussion about infrastructure, and its true needs in our society, i've not actually seen the details of the so-called bipartisan agreement in the senate. but the devil's always in the details. so i have a couple of examples here of if we're really going to do this we need to sort of figure out, do the democrats really want infrastructure? particularly even green infrastructure. do we really want it or do we just want to put up a whole lot of cash that ultimately basically goes to environmental groups, that ultimately just goes to lawyers? let me give you an example. for us now the southwest -- out in the southwest, there's an area of new mexico that i guess the way it's phrased, they have this tremendous wind asset. it's one of the greatest wind production areas in all of north
9:14 pm
america. so 15 years ago california said, hey, we really want some of that clean energy from that wind area in new mexico, but we'll help invest in it, we'll buy a ford on it, we'll contract to buy this. we're at 15 years now and the power line still isn't permitted because of all the environmental reviews, all the different jurisdictions. so if you really are trying to decarbonize the power grid, are the democrats willing to stop funding the lawyers and the environmental groups that make their living off of the litigation? and nepa study after nepa study, those are environmental studies. so we have a case here, it's referred to as sunzia power line, you can go online and look it up. it started in 2006 and some of
9:15 pm
the documents out there say they will finally get their permits in 2023 or 2025. this isn't unique. there's lots of occasions like this where an area where you want to build wind, solar, even some geothermal and you can't get it permitted. don't you see the, just the absurdity, we're going to put up all this money for infrastructure, particularly even from the democrat, the green infrastructure, but we're not going to change the laws because the left is the beneficiaries of so much money the environmental left and the trial lawyers or lawyers that sue on this stuff we need to put a clock on this. and you actually have, i know this hits a little close to home to some of our east coast folks, but when it becomes an upheaval
9:16 pm
over doing ocean-based windmills off part of the east coast here, and a lot of the very, very wealthy leftists are the very ones who cry and complain saying you can't put this in part of our view, which it isn't part of the view if you look at the data, we got to decide. things like this vineyard wind project, which i guess is, actually, i'm embarrassed to say i have the map on my wall, i guess it's off the coast of rhode island. and they been fussing over that for a decade now. does the -- do the democrats truly want this clean energy? ok. for us in the desert southwest, we actually in the afternoons because of our photo voltaic inventory, we produce too much power. we're having to have creative discussions of, in that afternoon when power rates crash to almost nothing, should we convert it into hydrogen and
9:17 pm
make that storage? you saw the incredible article last week in the "wall street journal" that the new iron rust batteries, they're very, very heavy so they don't work in vehicles, but could be incredibly inexpensive, efficient storage. this is wonderful. but that's for those of thaws live in the desert where we have lots of sunshine and photo voltaic is pretty efficient. if you want to transmit that power someplace, are the democrats going to step up and help someone like myself who is just trying to do a piece of legislation that would put these permitting on a clock. for it to get capital for you to raise money for investors to participate. ifer you to actually plan the power grid. you can't have where the power line for that wind farm you wanted takes 15 to 20 years to get the power.
9:18 pm
soy guess my little passion here is i'm incredibly skeptical for the pay-ifs -- pay-fors. but even if it passes, unless we are willing to change the bureaucratic bottlenecks that have been created, you're not seeing much of this change in the power grid for a couple of decades. but do we continue to tell the public the fantasy, or do you step up and say i'm going to do the hard things, i'm going to change these timelines, i'm going to have to say no to some of my trial lawyer contributors, i'm going to have to put this on a clock so everyone gets a chance to share their concerns, for it to be properly environmentally reviewed, but it doesn't take 20 years to do a line sighting. if the left is willing to do that, then actually, they will get some credibility that they really are serious.
9:19 pm
if they're not willing to do that, then you understand, much of the talk about the green rev neution and -- revolution and the energy base is a fraud. it's theater. it's pandering. because we'll say, hey, look at all this money, but you can't move generation. and it's real. and we have example after example after example. so mr. speaker, i appreciate you tolerating a bit of my tirade tonight. as we often joke to whoever is in the chair i used to get put in that chair when i made john boehner now, so i -- john boehner mad, so i got to be in that chair a lot. but the things i shared tonight, they don't need to be partisan. they're process. they're bottleneck they keep many of the things we agree on from happening. but this place is so weaponnized right now, that if i say it's
9:20 pm
black, the other side has to say social security white. -- the other side has to say it's white. it's just become a dysfunctional body. and if our goal is to make the working poor less poor, if it's to make our society much more prosperous if it's to provide optionality in our energy, we know what has to be done. but we have to be willing not to necessarily engage in -- theater aside, maybe actually engage in the proof we have of what's worked and what hasn't. with that, mr. speaker, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. pursuant to section 11-b of house resolution 188, the house stands adjourned until 10:00 a.m. tomorrow for morning hour debate and noon for
