Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has introduced the "Light Bulb Freedom of Choice Act." I feel so protected!
She's a global warming denier and wants the government to prove that compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFLs) will lead to real savings in energy costs, cut carbon dioxide emissions and not be bad for people's health before it promotes them.
President Bush actually signed an energy bill last year that included the phase-in of super efficient light bulbs by 2012.
