Pat Tiberi: forcing us to poison the environment

Good ol' fascialist (a combination of fascism and socialism) Tiberi voted to shove fluorescent light bulbs down our throats. The guy is a real piece of work. -- Jim


Utility wants longer to explain light-bulb plan

FirstEnergy Corp. says it needs more time to explain what it wants to do with the 3.75 million high-efficiency light bulbs it had hoped to sell to consumers whether they wanted them or not.

The Akron utility is trying to get an extension on the Monday deadline set by state regulators to explain how it will dispose of the compact fluorescent light bulbs.

The company wants to work the program into a three-year program it will file by Dec. 31.

The Ohio consumers' counsel objects to the delay and is telling the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio that. The PUCO in October rejected a FirstEnergy plan to hand-deliver bulbs to customers, then raise their bills to cover that cost and the lost energy revenue.

I agree.

Let's throw Tiberi out of office by running a libertarian candidate that will split the Republican vote and elect yet another Democrat in a conservative district - Paula Brooks. I'm sure that Paula, with the support of her new best friend Nancy Pelosi, will represent the 12th congressional district in a style more to your liking.

Not that it matters. Tiberi votes as if liberty is a relic.

And it's better than voting for Tiberi and expecting a old guard conservative.

Isn't insanity defined as repeatedly voting for a Tiberi and expecting Reagan?

No, insanity is defined as electing Paula Brooks and then expecting anything but Nancy Pelosi style liberalism.

Only an idiot would suggest that there is no difference between Tiberi and Paula Brooks.

You might not know this, but Pelosi is the speaker and Tiberi has absolutely no voice, whatsoever.

When he did have a voice, he advocated the same nonsense as Paula. He voted fo SCHIP (the most-recent step in socialized healthcare) and for fluorescent light bulbs. And that is just the tip of his fascialist iceberg.

Under Bush and Tiberi, our nation took a big step toward collectivism. That's why the term fascialism suits Bush, Tiber, as well as Paula, and Pelosi (add in Obama and McCain, of course). They are all birds of a feather.

Remember, the bailouts and stimulus plan have a genesis in the Bush/Tiberi regime.

Keep voting for Tiberi and watch this nation go down the drain.

I whole heartedly agree. Let's split the GOP vote, get a wack-job Democrat in there and then there will be a boomerang effect that puts a TRUE CONSERVATIVE in office in 2012. Electing Democrats has a laxative effect on the electorate. Actually, it's more like an enema. After a decade of letting Republicans become non-Republicans we purge them only to regret it in two years. Only when we do that do they refocus on being conservative again.

So, whoever the DelCo fool is who posted that--great idea!

Anon 8:22, your theory sure worked great in the 50's. And the 60's. And the 70's. And the 80's. The Republicans lost 20 congressional elections in a row, just waiting for the One - the true conservative that was going to sweep the nation. It reminds me of Linus and the pumpkin patch.

Vote against Tiberi if you want to. Vote against the entire party if you want. Watch as Pelosi and Reid nationalize everything and wait because you know that true conservative victory is only the next election away - or maybe the one after that - or maybe the one after.. never mind.

Jim, I am well aware of the excess of Bush/Hastert/Frist and missed opportunities, but you can't equate the relatively small expansion of federal power under Bush compared to what the current regime is attempting.

"[R]elatively small expansion of federal power under Bush ..."

Relative to what? Under Bush we got snared by the Homeland Security and the Patriot acts. Two of the biggest power grabs ever.

You lost more constitutional rights under Bush than the nation lost in the preceding 200 years. And Bush set up the precedence for an Obama -- Obama is not a leap, he is simply the next logical step.

Regardless, here is what I ask. Show me one congressional act where Tiberi's vote decided the issue --- and decide it in for liberty. Just one.

The Republican Party moves toward fascialism since the tribal respone is "they are better than the Democrats." In the end, and at their best, they are simply Democrats with a five year delay.

Other than Ron Paul, every Republican is adocating more government control of healthcare. They have adopted the Pelosi plan but will take five years to implement whereas Pelosi and company want to do it now.

If you only want five years, then fine. But if you believe the parties truly have different agendas, you are sadly mistaken.

It seems every politician wants more power and money. They all take so they can give and declare themselves heroes to the poor and unfortunate. They help those who won't (not can't, but won't) help themselves. They insist on sin taxes as a deterent. I could go on.

The faster we hit bottom, the sooner we can revolt, the sooner we can take our country back. History will repeat itself and Obama has only put our contry in Fast Forward.

You have a better grasp of Peanuts television specials than you do of politics. Typical DelCo RINO. It is precisely because the GOP was dominated by the liberal "country club" establishment Rockefeller wing (Tiberi's pedigree) that we lost for most of that time (Goldwater withstanding, but his loss had more to do with a tactical blunder than message). Republicans lose when they try to "out Democrat" Democrats. Given the choice, Democrats will vote for their own instead of pathetic facsimiles thrust upon the electorate from the GOP.

It wasn't that we "waited" for The One (ostensibly you're referring to Reagan) that kept the GOP in the wilderness. It was that the liberal Northeastern establishment of the GOP muddled the Party's mission and message. It wasn't until the focus of influence shifted from the liberal Northeast to the South did the GOP regain it's social-conservative identity and begin winning elections again.

Remind me how Tiberi is responsible for this affront to our freedom. As far as I can tell, FirstEnergy is making an effort to comply with Ohio state law, not federal law. I fail to see how we can hold our US Representatives responsible for the mistakes of our state or local governments. As far as I can tell, Congressman Tiberi's position on energy has been a common sense approach that promotes better energy efficiency without shoving anything like FirstEnergy's proposals down the throats of consumers. I recommend you check his record on energy policy here: http://tiberi.house.gov/Issues/Issue/?IssueID=4283

Tiberi voted for the FEDERAL legislation that is forcing all of us to use mercury-laden light bulbs.

Tiberi is the prototypical fascist -- or fascialist, to be exact.
