HUH? Now The Biden Administration Is Planning To Ban Light Bulbs….

Beginning the following week, incandescent lightbulbs will be completely banned nationally under the Biden administration.

Americans will only be allowed to buy LED lights from stores once the ban is in place.

The government is aware of what is best for your family.

They can advise you on lighting options that can save both money and the environment.

We are aware of how Americans respond to this spiel.

“Come Tuesday, while it won’t be illegal to own incandescent light bulbs, it will be illegal for stores to sell them and companies to manufacture them,” The Hill reports.

Even if the federal government used a more aggressive tone in order to impose the ban on incandescent light bulbs, critics correctly characterized the action as government overreach.

More from The Hill:

However, some critics of the ban are calling it government overreach, saying lawmakers should let Americans make their own decisions about the light bulbs in their houses.

The Department of Energy says LED lights provide more light using 75% less energy and last 25 times longer than incandescent light bulbs. Plus, LED lights are estimated to save families about $100 per year.

The average cost of an LED light bulb ranges from $5 to $7 each, while an incandescent light bulb would normally range from $2 to $3 a bulb, according to a report from Lifehacker. However, LED bulbs save money in the long run because they use less energy to run and last longer.

The agency also claimed that discontinuing inefficient incandescent lights will save Americans nearly $3 billion yearly and substantially reduce carbon dioxide emissions over 30 years.

The Biden administration’s justification for invading Americans’ lives with authority uses the typical clichés.

In the name of “climate change,” “reduce carbon emissions.”

In the guise of renewable energy and combating climate change, the federal government has virtually waged war on American living standards.

The Biden administration has previously focused on basic domestic appliances including gas stoves, air conditioners, dishwashers, and others.

The restriction was mentioned on NewsNation, along with the Biden administration’s “regulatory assault on American home appliances.”

NewsNation reported:

Despite the long-term benefits, some people said the decision to make the light switch should be their own, not the government’s.

Last week, a House subcommittee discussed the ban at a hearing titled, “Canceling Consumer Choice: Examining the Biden administration’s regulatory assault on American’s home appliances.”

“I’m happy the Department of Energy is out here, making sure that we can all save money because we’re too dumb to figure out how to do it ourselves,” Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, R- Penn., said.

The hearing was in part a reference to gas stoves, which the House passed a bill to prohibit banning them last month despite the Consumer Product Safety Commission not currently considering a ban.

“These updated regulations are not an attempt to ban or take away appliances like gas stoves, light bulbs, or dishwashers,” Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., said.

Manufacturers who violate the ban could face a maximum penalty of $542 per illicit bulb.

The main issue is that the federal government has no control over your home or the kinds of appliances you want to have inside.
