Democrats Aiding, Abetting Extreme Liberal Environmental-Green-Wienies to Ban Incandescent Light Bulbs

Excerpt from Center for the Defense of Free Enterprise Action Fund:

Dear Friend of Free Enterprise:

I want it to be my choice, not forced on me by DC bureaucrats!


Four years ago—in 2007, the newly-installed Pelosi-Reid Democratic majority in Congress began implementing what is a global agenda to rid the world of the incandescent light. The 110th Congress’ environmental agenda began with one piece of legislation that suggested the world’s worst environmental polluter might have been a guy named Thomas Edison whose invention, the electric light–they claimed–causes global warming.

By outlawing incandescent lights in favor of compact fluorescent lighting, the environmentalists said the country would reduce energy consumption by $18 billion a year, or save consumers between $80 to $180 on their electric bills per year. The plus for the globalists? They said it would reduce global warming because one of the causes of global warming is…you guessed it…the old fashioned Tom Edison light bulb


Barack Obama wants to physically change the way you live—including the type of light bulbs that you use in your home. NEXT YEAR your light bulbs will be obsolete. You will be mandated by federal law to get rid of your existing light bulbs—all for the sake of the preventing, or minimizing global warming (even though scientists today are telling us we are entering into a solar cooling phase that will drop the average temperatures on Earth for the next 30 to 80 years).



The Capitol


I do not appreciate the over-zealous environmentalists who are trying to change the way I have lived successfully for many years. The 100W light bulbs in my living room don’t cause global warming.


The “sky-is-falling” federal bureaucracy does not have any business in dictating and demanding what light bulb I use in the privacy of my own home – particularly when the replacement to the incandescent light bulb has proven to be hazardous to the health of our families while the traditional incandescent light bulb has proven to be both safe and reliable for about 120 years.

I urge you — no, I actually insist – that you vote to REPEAL the Renewable Fuels, Consumer Protection and Energy Efficient Act of 2007 as a bad law that borders on rank “sky-is-falling” stupidity.

Please support S.395 and H.R. 6411.

Help put an end to too much governmental interference in my life.

Thank you for your time and your vote.





Please contact your Member of our U.S. Congress in the U. S. House of Representatives to urge them to vote for the BULB Act and H.R. 6411, and U. S. Senators to support S.395 so our lives do not have to be run by federal bureaucrats or environmentalists in the privacy of our own homes. This is a fight that must be fought to save the free enterprise system from the “green energy” advocates who don’t care if “green energy” costs a lot more “green” than cost-efficient, and safe lighting.

Frank, thank you for pointing out that it was Bush’s State of the Union Address in 2007 that is responsible for instigating the mandating of this whacko green nonsense of these light bulbs that will break the banks of the average American senior citizen on a fixed income and poor people. However, it was the Democrats who controlled Congress, did they not? Nancy Pelosi was the House Majority Leader and could have stopped this legislation dead in it’s tracks. Harry Reid was the Senate Majority Leader. The Democrats held both the majority in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House, didn’t they? Neither Pelosi or Reid did anything to stop this legislation being brought to the floor or allowing it to get passed to send to Bush. If Bush hadn’t signed the Bill, he’d have been called on the carpet by the ever-loving green liberal-biased media. The extreme whacko greenies control Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the Dem’s as well as a number of Big Government loving RINO’s, but let’s not place the blame on ordinary Americans who would rather vote for a pro-life Republican than a baby-killing pro-death, raise-your-taxes-at-every-opportunity-they-can Democrat. Those of us who hold our noses often times in the voting booth as we pull the lever for a RINO because we know that the Democrat on the other side of the isle is going to be a thousand times worse and our wallets will only get sparser voting for a Democrat! And that, my friend, is why there is a Tea Party! As socially conservative and sick of being taxed even after death Republicans we are rebelling against all the RINOs. It’s down with RINOs, down with commie Dems! We are demanding that real America vote them down and out of a job! Restore sanity to the USA! We’ve had it! We’ve become voting revolutionaries! It was Big Lobbyists that got this bulb junk legislation passed. General Electric lobbied big time for it. Tomorrow I’ll post the proof. General Electric loves Obama! NBC and GE were one in the same back then and they gave liberally to Obama’s election success! Remember always what NBC really stands for: Nothing But Communists!

The Energy Independence and National Security Act was signed into law, not by the “nanny state loving socialist Obama,” but by Republican free market champion George W. Bush. When President Bush signed the bill into law on December 19, 2007, he praised the energy efficiency standards, “The bill also includes revisions to improve energy efficiency in lighting and appliances. It adopts elements of the executive order I signed requiring federal agencies to lead by example in efficiency and renewable energy use.”

This bill came into being as the legislative response to George W. Bush’s Twenty in Ten challenge during his 2007 State of the Union. In the address, Bush called on the United States to improve fuel economy, and increase alternative fuels. His goal was to cut gasoline consumption by 20% in 10 years. All of the current right wing outrage over light bulbs is due to a proposal by their own Republican president. It was their idea. Instead of trying to pass this plan off as Democratic big government, they need to look in the mirror. If they don’t like the new bulbs, they should be blaming themselves, not Obama or the Democrats.
