“Ever since Jerry Ford’s administration, federal regulators have been trying to make, and have succeeded in making, various appliances less useful. President Trump’s people put a pause to some of that. Biden’s employees have started it going again. The latest is washing machines. They already use less water than their counterparts of 20 years ago. Biden’s regulators want to require that new washing machines use even less water. This would mean that washing your clothes will take longer and/or that your clothes will come out dirtier.” (03/15/23)
