Daylight Saving Time and Republicans

Hey Republicans, when you take control of the Congress and the White House like you say you are going to do in the 2012 election, how about actually doing something important like eliminating Daylight Saving Time—a relic of the world wars. Especially since you Republicans extended it in the Energy Policy Act of 2005. House Republicans voted 200–31 in favor of the bill. (Ron Paul voted no.) Senate Republicans voted 48–6 in favor of the bill. It is the Energy Policy Act of 2005 that made possible the Solyndra debacle. Thanks Jim DeMint. Should the U.S. even have an energy policy? I argue no here.
