Almost all experts now agree we are in the midst of a recession.
And most believe it is only going to get worse for the American people.
But now Joe Biden is pushing new mandates that will force Americans to pay more for basic necessities.
The American people are struggling to get by.
Bidenflation has caused many of us to make cuts in basic necessities just to be able to pay the bills.
Defaults on credit cards and mortgages are skyrocketing and there seems to be no end in sight.
People are putting off needed medical treatment in order to keep their heat on.
The Grinch is real and sitting in the White House
Businesses are closing their doors due to increased costs and Christmas spending is expected to be way below normal.
But as consumers feel the pain of Bidenflation, the Grinch in the White House – and his helpers in Congress – are hard at work developing more ways to hurt the American people.
Congress is getting set to pass one of the worst Omnibus spending bills in American history, adding trillions to our debt.
And Joe Biden is scheming to put more regulations and mandates on all Americans, despite the failing economy.
For example the Biden administration just released a new proposed rule that will require Americans to buy LED light bulbs.
This move alone is estimated to cost Americans more than $400 million in compliance costs on manufacturers alone.
And that amount does not include the increased costs of these LED light bulbs and the cost to replace light fixtures that will not work with LEDs.
We won’t leave the light on for you . . .
The Biden administration claims the proposed new rule will more than double energy efficiency standards for light bulbs, and said the real goal is to move people away from traditional lighting to only LED bulbs.
“Earlier this year, DOE implemented a near-term phaseout of inefficient incandescent bulbs,” the White House said. “Today’s new rule will accelerate the transition away from compact fluorescent bulbs as well, toward more efficient and long-lasting LED bulbs that deliver significant savings and that the lighting industry is already embracing.”
In a surprising turn of events, the administration actually admitted this switch will cost the taxpayers money.
“In order to bring products into compliance with new and amended standards, it is estimated that the industry would incur total conversion costs of $407 million,” the draft rule said.
What this really means is even more closed businesses who will be forced to turn their lights off for the final time.
And it means more Americans will be unable to buy the expensive LED bulbs and all the new light fixtures needed to use them.
But that’s not even the worst of it
As if that weren’t bad enough, LED bulb mandates aren’t even the worst of it.
The White House said the new LED rule is just one of dozens of new rules released by the Biden administration, which are aimed at turning the United States into a “net-zero emissions economy by no later than 2050.”
Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said, “Today’s announcement is the latest in a series of more than 110 energy efficiency actions taken by the Administration to help lower energy costs and keep money in the pockets of American families while reducing our nation’s carbon footprint.”
It is clear Joe Biden and his evil elves are working overtime to make sure no American has a Merry Christmas this year.
