I just heard that Nancy Pelosi during her ‘reign’ had mandated that fluorescent lights be used on the House side of congress. They are currently being replace, by order of Boehner, with good old fashioned incandescent light bulbs.
And while I’m on the topic, the other day my husband pointed out that even though democrats have mandated that all light bulbs in the home be CFL’s by 2014, another law has been passed mandating that CFL bulbs NOT be used outdoors. It seems they pose a danger to the environment.
As for the environment in your home, who cares! Certainly not the Democrats.
I have a bright idea for you. Why don’t Americans get the freedom to choose whatever light bulb they want. We pay our own bill, let us decide if a higher power bill is better or worse than a toxic light bulb that must be saved carefully after use and disposed at a hazardous waste site.
