In a Tuesday morning Fox News segment, Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn made the recent GOP efforts to repeal the ban on incandescent light bulbs a metaphor for the entire Republican point of view.

According to Blackburn, the current eco-friendly lightbulbs outsource jobs to China, represent the government in our homes and just aren’t too bright — all things she also accuses Democrats of.

“This is a great metaphor for all of the big government overreach,” Blackburn said.” Like the Obama administration, they are too expensive to afford.”
