The ban on incandescent light bulbs.
In recent years Congress has put forth several pieces of legislation that are flat-out designed to hurt the American people. Many such acts come from the environmental sphere. The prohibition of incandescent bulbs is one. Flat-out inexcusable. Stupid. Borderline malevolent.
Cap-and-trade is another. Designed to lower our standard of living. Making everyday, logical actions in some way painful.
That is not the behavior of a government with the best interests of its people at heart. Or even with consent of the governed.
