Bachmann Aims To Bring Back Da Bulbs
In an attempt to reverse the stupefying move by the dim bulbs who wrote and supported the energy bill, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R MN6) is authoring a bill to bring back the light bulb.
Bachmann also voiced her opposition to an item in the Energy Bill which will ban incandescent light bulbs by the year 2012 in an effort to get more people using a more energy-efficient fluorescent model.
â€œI am carrying legislation to bring you back your light bulbs,â€ Bachmann told the group. â€œThis forces people to spend more money on light bulbs.â€
In case you didn’t know, the recent energy bill has put the incandescent light bulb on the endangered species list and will ban the sale of them altogether in the very near future. Bachmann opposed the social engineering Energy bill which actually created no new energy and, in fact, was designed to make it harder and more expensive to get reliable and abundant energy.
Bachmann shared her views on a number energy and environmental matters.
â€œWe are in a country abundantly rich in natural resources,â€ she said. â€œEnergy should be the least of our problems. If we extract 20 percent (of the oil) we know is off the coast of Virginia we can replace what we import from Saudi Arabia.â€
Local oil, along with more nuclear power, are part of her solution to the energy crisis and $4 a gallon gasoline.
â€œWe have got almost unlimited availability of energy in the United States but we have restricted our ability to use it,â€ she said. â€œItâ€™s like we have a pantry stocked to the roof with food and weâ€™re sitting here with empty plates and the door is locked.â€
Unfortunately she is the only person who represents me in Washington DC who has a clue on how to lower energy prices and the courage to stand up to the environmental special interests. (Yes that is a shot at someone.)
