Q: Will energy efficient light bulbs cost $50 each next year?
A: Of course some could cost that much, but some halogen incandescent bulbs and compact fluorescent bulbs go for about $1.50 to $3 each.
Q: Is it true that this year’s deficit is greater than the total taxable income of Americans earning more than $100,000?
A: No. The statistic comes from a Wall Street Journal editorial, which has been corrected.
There’s also a followup on Sarah Palin’s wild deficit claims and a look at the Pres. Obama’s budget speech and Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget spin. Always some good stuff here.
