Another Tax on the Poor

Liberals, with the signature of President Bush, have driven up the cost of being poor in this country yet again.That’s right — beginning this year in California and next year everywhere else, the incandescent lightbulb is being banned.Now, the environmentalists say that’s not true — the bulb is just being phased out for new energy efficient light bulbs. But it is the reality. The cheap incandescent is being tossed aside for LED bulbs, halogen bulbs, compact fluorescents, etc.It will be a failure of the Republicans in Congress if the incandescent bulb goes away. The replacements are all more expensive, many of them more hazardous, and the result is an increase in the cost of living for the poor in this country.
