8:31 pm
politically, it's a big deal because essentially this bill is dead about 3 weeks ago when we mentioned it essentially said walked away from the table so ability in get this back to a vote and that still need to go to the house, which should be this coming friday is is i think a real victory for president biden for the democrats showed that the fact that they can actually do something that's most positive momentum heading into the november midterms. but in terms of specific for californians, this is really good news because you're seeing your had a lot of investment in clean energy is in. this is in this bill. 369 billion dollars to be exact. and when you put that when you when you translate that into reality, it's like a $7500 tax credit at sale for what your car? $4,000 tax credit at sale for use electric car which had never been done before that the solar a tax credet goes
8:32 pm
back up to 30% for 10 are starting to phase down over the last few years to trigger a little bit of worry amongst the solar industry here you have a lot of investment in other types of clean fuels and energy maybe as wind and other things. so for california, especially we're concerned about climate change and how it affects your pocket. but this is very this is a very big deal for california. >> so, michael, we know that climate change gets tackled in this by lowering prescription drug costs and also a tax here. but we know the republicans have been saying because it this is called read, the inflation reduction act. so republicans have actually said this is going to aggravate inflation and also the non-partisan congressional budget office's said this bill is likely going to have or will have a small effect on inflation this year and also next year. so how much of a compromise was this to get to this point?
8:33 pm
>> considering that the original build back better and this is essentially that much smaller version was about 3.5 billion dollars in. this is not that by a long shot and almost, you know. 20% of that. but that's when i was a legislator, ice my bills to a son named him in a way that i wanted it to be character. for whatever purpose going and certainly for here, just this was a this is a mansion request, right? this is when you think about really. but investment. but for mansion, he wanted some even said you walk away from the table saying i don't want to do anything that's going to increase inflation. so here we have the inflation reduction will it actually reduce inflation? not sure. i think what you're really seeing with the fed, it was going to be dealing with with whether inflation gets gets throttle down or not. but in terms of just the optics of victory at
8:34 pm
a time when people are concerned about this. but still what you just might best when it's you and and and in their hearts that want this economy to bushes as reflected by the last jobs report that this past weekend, this past friday where 5 g 20,000 new jobs, we're headed to the economy. this is all about the optics for for the mid and so the republicans are going to say this is going more government spending. democrats are going to be saying this is about investment and inflation reduction and in between. you have a lot of talking points about what was or what was in the bill that are going to be designed to train target different constituencies in different local races tour across the country. so >> yes, so what's in a name, right? michael? haha. exactly. yeah. but by any of yeah. exactly. what. michael, thank you so much for your insight into this. and of you know, still have to to go to the house and go from there. thank you as always. all right. going to take a look now at
