    Yesterday's Politico article:

    "Our work on light bulbs wasn't an arbitrary mandate," he said. "We didn't just pick a standard out of the air, or look for a catchy sounding standard like 25 by 2025 not based in science or feasibility. Instead, we worked with both industry and environmental groups to come up with a standard that made sense and was doable."

    Congressman Fred Upton's work with environmental groups is what needs to be highlighted in this article.  

    Global Warming theory is thoroughly debunked.  It is not only not caused by human industry, it is not happening.  Moreover, the Congressman is seeking the top spot on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, the chair of such a committee must realize this.

    Further, the fluorescent bulbs that are held in favor by extremist environmentalists contain mercury, one of the elements the green movement decries when killing coal plants.  Their hypocrisy is stunning.

    Thomas Edison's work was the result of his life-long interest in science.  Fred Upton's consultation with the scientific agenda of the green movement, which is not science, but an ideology, must be pointed out.

    The idea that he defended the ban by saying it wasn't done by picking a percentage and time out of the air is not the point, the fact that it was done based on faulty information, and the lack of leadership on energy issues is.

    ...Republican Members of Congress be required to take a course on and pass a test relating to remedial US Constitution 101.

    I must have missed something.

    I mean I looked and looked, but sadly, I couldn't find any mention of Congress having any authority whatsoever to prohibit light bulbs or doing most of what was contained in the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (Thank you, Pres. Bush -r).

    You can creatively interpret Art 1, Sec 8 any way you want, it simply isn't there.

    To continue to act as ignorantly as they have make them no different, or better, than democrats!
