Americans Brighter Than Obama & Democrats … 67% of Americans Oppose Upcoming Ban on Traditional Light Bulbs
BLINDED BY THE LIGHT …
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”

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!
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.
