Conservative Sen Rand Paul (R-KY): We should expand our choices and spend less time banning light bulbs

(Cubachi) - At the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing, Senator Rand Paul railed against the federal over-regulation of incandescent light bulbs. Paul even quoted a passage from the novel, “Anthem” by Ayn Rand in which society is ruled by a collective and individual choice is banned.

In an amendment Paul offered, he wants to make efficiency standards voluntary, not mandated by the federal government.

The Kentucky senator is promoting more choice, and less regulation.
