Let's repeal the incandescent light bulb ban

I just sent the following message to my U.S. Representative, Mike Pence.

I urge you to join with Representatives Joe Barton, Dan Burton, Ron Paul, and others as a cosponsor of the Better Use of Light Bulbs Act or BULB Act, H.R. 91.

It may be a relatively minor matter, but it is symbolic of what is wrong with government at all levels, that those elected to serve us in government would try to influence our consumer choices through coercion, rather than trusting education and the free market to be our reliable guide in matters of this sort.

Thank you for your service to Hoosiers and Americans in the U.S. Congress.
