Why is it this is the result of all of Democrat's plans?
[UPDATE] Jonathan down in the comments section has shown me that I was wrong and that Jim cited the wrong House bill. The actual bill that involved the vote on the lightbulbs was HR6 in 2007. Half of the Republicans voted in favor of this bill. Granted, it would have passed anyway since all Democrats (219) but 4 voted in favor of this bill's passage.
Back in 2007, 221 Democrats voted in favor of a proposition to eliminate all ordinary incadescent light bulbs by 2012 (Update, actually, its 100watt by 2012 and 40watt by 2014). That final end date is but 15 months away. That timeline has caused, what everyone else who wasn't a Democrat or closed-minded eco-nut knew would, the last US company that made light bulbs to close.
From Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit come this bit of Pro-Obama news:
The last major GE factory making ordinary incandescent light bulbs in the United States is closing this month, marking a small, sad exit for a product and company that can trace their roots to Thomas Alva Edison’s innovations in the 1870s.
The remaining 200 workers at the plant here will lose their jobs.
“Now what’re we going to do?” said Toby Savolainen, 49, who like many others worked for decades at the factory, making bulbs now deemed wasteful.
Oh, but you say, why don't they just make the new CFL that the Congress had DEMANDED that we all must use now?
Rather than setting off a boom in the U.S. manufacture of replacement lights, the leading replacement lights are compact fluorescents, or CFLs, which are made almost entirely overseas, mostly in China.
Thank you Democrats. This is the thinking that all Democrats have. Force a change in behavior and the people will accept it happily, no matter if it kills the economy.
Are you tired yet of being told how to live? Tired of being told that you have no choice? Tired of being pointed at as being the reason for everything wrong?
Then it is time to stand up and tell them that you are Mad as Hell and you are not going to take it any more.
