House Passes Bill That Forces Biden to Keep Its ‘Hands Off Our Home Appliances’

The House on Tuesday passed a bill designed to ensure that any new energy efficiency standards promulgated by the U.S. Department of Energy be based on available technology and economic reality, according to a media release from the bill’s sponsor.

Rep. Debbie Lesko’s office said that the bill passed with bi-partisan support.

“I am saddened that we would need such a bill,” Lesko said in the release.

“However, as we have experienced under this administration, the Department of Energy has unleashed an avalanche of new regulations for household products, including stoves, dishwashers, washing machines, showers, toilets, water heaters, air conditioners, heat pumps, and furnaces.

“No government bureaucrat should EVER scheme to take away Americans’ appliances in the name of a radical environmental agenda, yet that is exactly what we have seen under the Biden Administration,” she added.

Republican Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington spoke in support of the bill from the House floor, calling the “rush to green agenda” by the Biden administration “out of touch” with the priorities of everyday Americans.

The intent of the bill is to tweak the way in which the DOE creates new regulations or modifies or revokes existing ones as they apply to consumer products like household appliances, but specifically excludes vehicles, according to a summary of the bill on the official congressional website.

According to a summary of the bill, if enacted, it would grant the DOE the authority to “grant a petition to revoke or amend energy conservation standards if it finds that the standards (1) result in additional costs to consumers, (2) do not result in significant conservation of energy or water, (3) are not technologically feasible, and (4) result in a product (e.g., gas stoves) not being commercially available in the United States to all consumers.”

It also would require all new or modified regulations to be ” technologically feasible and economically justified,” according to the summary.

The website listed 10 cosponsors of the bill, all of whom are Republicans.

Interested readers can read the bill in its entirety below.

According to the U.S. House Clerk’s Office, 205 Republicans voted to pass the bill along with seven Democrats. All 195 votes against the bill were from Democrats.

Of those listed as “Not Voting” on the bill, 11 were Democrats and 12 were Republicans.

The bill faces an uncertain future in the Senate, although passage seems unlikely given the Senate’s refusal to take up similar bills in the past, such as Lesko’s Save Our Gas Stoves Act, passed by the House in 2023.

According to an analysis by the Congressional Budget Office, the bill would require no significant additional federal government spending.

    There IS a solution to the madness…

    We’re no longer living in a Constitutional Republic, but under a neo-Marxist regime, which not only doesn’t recognize the Constitution, it also doesn’t recognize rule of law. In other words, just after this ILLEGITIMATE ‘Administration’ w/ it’s ILLEGITIMATE POTUS figurehead rigged and stole the last election, they told us, “YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS”. Their message to all of us was: COMPLY OR DIE. (i.e.: “You WILL get vaccinated, or we’ll take your livelihood from you”. In other words – you, [and your family] won’t eat).

    THAT’S TYRANNY, MANDATED BY RUTHLESS DICTATORS – NOTHING LESS.

    History has taught us you cannot reason nor negotiate w/ dictators. Why? Because they’re psychopaths – ALL OF THEM. Many believe protesting will facilitate change. IT WILL NOT. Protests aimlessly serve as nothing more than exercises in futility. Not one country has ever been saved from dictatorial tyrants by protests – not one.

    History has also taught us there’s only ONE way for a country to rid itself from dictatorship. YOU ELIMINATE THE DICTATORS – BY WHATEVER MEANS NECESSARY – DONE.

    ONE BULLET IN LESS THAN ONE SECOND – that’s all it could take to change the course of history. That’s all it could take to facilitate a positive path forward for change. Example:

    If someone/anyone would have been successful in assassinating Hitler ANY time before Sept.1, 1939 – WWII WOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED! Think about that for just a second. MILLIONS wouldn’t have been killed. Hundreds of thousands of soldiers would have been spared. Trillions of dollars wouldn’t have been expended.

    We may be Christian and/or conservatives. However, we’re not doormats…and contrary to popular opinion, (and what the Catholic ‘church’ has taught for centuries), one of the 10 Commandments given to Moses by God NEVER commanded THOU SHALT NOT KILL. It commanded THOU SHALT NOT MURDER. There’s a difference – quite a difference, and you need look no further than the Bible itself to find dozens of examples of righteous killing(s) – ALL w/ Gods’ blessing.

    Therefore, attempt to force me to do ANYTHING against my will, you’ll be found w/ a bullet in your head. That goes for ANYONE – including ILLEGITIMATE ‘Presidents’.

    (Are you listening DOJ/Gestapo? When you come for me – BE PREPARED TO DIE).

    P.S. – This is how I feel when threatened w/ taking my stove away. Imagine my response for anything greater which would have negative consequences brought upon myself or those entrusted to me – just imagine…

    The power in this bill is not the bill, but the awareness WE all can bring to this issue. Folks, the goal of the Establishment is to reduce global population and that means YOU. This is an opportunity to bring attention to the wickedness of them who think they rule the World.

    They have advertising ads on Fire Fox That Biden is pictured and saying lies about Trump. Nothing that comes from these Democrats mouths are ever true. I get so mad when I see these Commercials that I change the channel. I can not stand their hypocrisy. They only have left to run on Abortion and I hope these dumb women do not fall for their lies. The hypocrites are labeling Trump as a Nazi which they are doing. Biden is just a tool for the Democratic party.
