Brilliant. Rand Paul Links Government Bureaucrats to Busted Toilets (Video)
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) went off on big government bureaucrats during the Energy and Natural Resources Committee this week. Paul questioned the Department of Energy’s commitment to protecting consumer choice during consideration of Appliance/Light Bulb Energy-Efficiency Legislation.
This was terrific – Sit back and enjoy.

My FOX Phoenix reported:
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul told a Senate Committee on Thursday that his toilet doesn’t work.
And the US government is to blame.
Paul, a Republican, blamed his plumbing conundrum on federal legislation that forces Americans to buy more energy efficient appliances.
“Light bulbs, refrigerators, toilets, you name it. You can’t go around your house without being told what to buy,” Paul said.
“You restrict my purchases. You don’t care about my choices. You don’t care about the consumer.
“Frankly, my toilets don’t work in my house, and I blame you and people like you who want to tell me what I can install in my house. I find it insulting.”
Paul was speaking during a hearing on a bill to improve appliances’ energy efficiency and another proposal to repeal a 2007 law that phases out traditional incandescent light bulbs in favor of more energy-efficient options.
