GE Closes US Factories after Receiving Enormous Stimulus

It’s not just because they’re hideous that I can’t stand the CFL bulbs. It’s because they’re a joke. But not funny. We have  technology to create regular light bulbs that last a lifetime and have antique bulbs from the 1900’s still working to prove it. Over the years they’ve been modified to burn out quick via ‘planned obsolescence’.

Why did GE receive billions in stimulus to just close factories here and move them all to China? We have to buy EVERY bulb from China now. What an enormous footprint.
