Will the U.S. House vote to repeal the ban-that’s-not-a-ban on incandescent bulbs? Henry Payne is optimistic, but as last night, The Hill had a different opinion: “House Democrats on Monday indicated strong opposition to a controversial bill to repeal federal lightbulb standards, which could lead to the defeat of the measure in an expected Tuesday vote.”
Read that sentence again. The idea that Americans are competent to decide which light bulbs they want to purchase is … controversial.
If that’s really true, we’re not citizens, but serfs and subjects.
