The Democrat-led House pressed Thursday for enough votes to pass landmark legislation that would combat global warming by forcing U.S. companies to reduce their carbon-dioxide emissions, expanding expensive renewable-energy sources and trimming consumers' choices on new light bulbs and hot tubs.I'll bet the hot tubs are flying off the shelves of Lowe's and Home Depot as I type this. I wish I could afford a new one. Ours is 10 years old this year. I just put some money into a new heater and control panel.
If this passes I might refinish the outside of ours and try to sell it for 2x the current price of a new one. The ad would read something like "Pre-ban hot tub for sale. Get it while you still can. No government paperwork required. It was filled with water to test it out, then emptied and never used. It's been sitting in the back of my garage since then. These are really getting hard to find, especially in this condition. $6000. Bond wire not included but I will sell it to the buyer for only $250 more."
Do you really want the government deciding what kind of hot tub you are allowed to purchase?
Maybe we could all join a union because they will probably be allowed more choices in hot tubs and light bulbs.
Some of you wanted hope and change. You're going to get it good and hard.
