The U.S. Government is pulling the plug on the 75 watt incandescent light bulb.

They can't be produced or imported as of today, but retailers can sell off what they have in stock.

The idea is to steer people toward more energy-efficient light bulbs.

KTBB's Garth Maier asks: Do you like the government regulating your light bulbs?

The new florescent bulbs only give you a savings for about a week or two after that they drop back to sucking up as much a a regular light bulb. Not my works that is the manufacture words.
LEDs are the wave. Not Many are made here however You can get them here. Command Electronics makes them in The USA. I bought 10 for 120. Bucks one year ago. My Electric Bill dropped 30 bucks a month. The incandescent light bulb is headed into the history books. Me I like keeping as much of my cash as I can.

They tell you that the new florescent bulbs save energy, but they don't, they use the same amount of electricity as incandescent bulbs, the only difference is that florescent bulbs last longer. They are just promoting someones product for a kickback from the manufacturer. Business as usual.
