Default Why is it the Federal Government's responsibilty?

The federal government has way too much money on there hands. They forced us to use these silly low volume flush toilets. When you swap them out for full flush, you're in violation of federal law.

Now they're going after our dishwashers.

Companies that make dishwashers are warning that the Obama administrationís latest efficiency standards for their industry would backfire.

The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers is accusing the Department of Energy (DOE) of a politically motivated drive to increase dishwasher efficiency, which are so bad that they would cause consumers to re-wash dishes, erasing any efficiency gains.

Rob McAver, the groupís head lobbyists, said regulators are going too far, and the new rules will allow only 3.1 gallons to be used to wash each load of dishes.
