Americans Brighter Than Obama & Democrats … 67% of Americans Oppose Upcoming Ban on Traditional Light Bulbs



Will Barack Obama say that 80% of Americans want to do away with traditional light bulbs? Probably, seeing that this disingenuous president will pretty much spin every fact to benefit his unpopular agenda. Just this week, Democrats blocked the repeal of the  light bulb ban.  Just yet another position by Democrats and the President that goes against the will of the people. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 67% of Americans oppose the ban of traditional incandescent light bulbs. Only 20% believe that the bulbs should be banned.

Mercury filled light bulbs and jobs to China … Democrats Say ‘YES”

Hat Tip: Vanderbilt  ’11

One-in-five Americans (20%) say they or someone they know has bought large quantities of traditional light bulbs to use when those bulbs disappear off store shelves next year under new federal light bulb regulations.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 70% of Adults aren’t doing that themselves or don’t know anyone who is, but another 10% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Such a decision to lose jobs to China and move to dim watted bulbs is the height of brilliance from President Barack Obama and the Democrat party. Democrats whine that the GOP needs to stay out of people’s bedrooms … We say to Democrats stay out of the rest of our homes. BTW, aren’t there lights in bedrooms, so Democrats, stay out of our bedrooms as well!

UPDATE I: As stated at the Gateway Pundit, House republicans moved to block federal light bulb efficiency standards without even a roll call vote.

An amendment from Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) defunding the Energy Department’s standards for traditional incandescent light bulbs to be 30 percent more energy efficient starting next year was approved rather anticlimactically by voice vote.

      Another reason why I love my home state of Texas.
      “Texas Tells Feds: Shove Your Light Bulb Ban”

      Although the law only applies to bulbs manufactured in Texas, this is an example of a state slapping the federal government’s overreaching hand.

      In order to willingly foist dangerous
      bulbs on We the People against our
      common sense, there must be a back
      room deal underway by the backers.

      The US House of Represenatives needs to shut down the EPA immediately by defunding.

      Bring the heads of the agency in and put them before a real tough committee with the purpose of finding criminal activity.
