Mr. Boehner, Your First Test. Oh Hell No.

Message to Mr. Boehner

Don't even think about making Fred Upton chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. In 2007 Upton, together with Jane Harman (D-CA) sponsored a bill to phase out the 100 watt incandescent light bulb by 2012, closing lightbulb plants across the nation and forcing us to buy bulbs that are full of mercury, only manufactured in China and cause headaches and eye problems.

Oh hell no.

Boehner is the right man for the job.

He can appoint idiots to these committees - but good luck acquiring funding when they try to pass some idiotic bill like the one you mention.

I should hope that doesn't happen. That, I fear, would be a terrible harbinger for things to come with Mr. Boehner.

I had never heard of this man. Maybe he will use this opportunity to redeem himself by crafting a law to repeal the incandescent bulb law. Legislative repentance.

I suspected Boehner was going to cave. It'll get worse. He needs replaced.
