Brecheen’s “no” vote on debt deal based in part on green energy subsidies

Energy Tax Credits 2022 & 2023 | H&R Block


Oklahoma Congressman Josh Brecheen laid out his reasons Thursday for voting against the debt limit deal reached by House Speaker McCarthy with President Biden.

One of his reasons?

“This deal leaves in place green energy tax credit subsidies that will cost taxpayers $1.2 billion over the next decade, while pushing natural gas utilization aside,” explained Rep. Brecheen, in a statement issued Thursday.

“Permitting reform would have been a net positive absent its inclusion of expediting taxpayer-subsidized green energy projects.”
