Don’t worry though. Yeah, CFL bulbs don’t work and will pollute your home and landfills with mercury but there are new LED lights that do work, supposedly. Of course, they cost $50 per bulb, but that’s only a problem for those earning less than a half- million per year, eh?
I’ve been predicting for at least two years now that the real tea party revolution won’t hit until the light bulb ban takes effect. I wonder whether the Republicans are too stupid to get ahead of the wave by repealing the law or are they brilliant strategists, determined to let the ban come and then saddle the Democrats with the voters’ outrage?
