You know it was a matter of time…
A nationwide grassroots campaign launched this week asking Congress to repeal the ban on incandescent light bulbs. The effort is being pushed by FreedomAction, a self-described “web-based gathering of activists.”
Republican Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan, is now the chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee. He’s promised a hearing on the ban, but so far no such hearing has been scheduled.
In December, when Upton was vying for the chairmanship, he changed positions on the mandatory switch from incandescent to CFL light bulbs. At the time, Upton said, “The last thing we wanted to do was infringe upon personal liberties — and this has been a good lesson that Congress does not always know best.”
Too bad he didn’t figure that out before he pushed through the ban. This just goes to show that it is not only the libtards who are blazing hypocrites.
Not that it will do any good, but head on over to http://freeourlight.org/ and sign the petition, read the articles and learn a little bit about the whole issue.
