At a fantastic savings of $2.70 a month (new vs old)...... it would only take me more than 15 years to pay for it. I'm 65 now. So it would be paid for by age 80, if I'm still around.

If I got 4% on my money in the market (some oil stocks)......I'd be getting $25/yr a dividends too.

So you are telling me to rush out and buy a new $640 unit, likely only 10 year lifetime refrigerator, because I need to save about $8 a year!......

total savings a year in electricity = $33

Lost dividends = $25

Yearly savings = $8 wonder the libs in DC are in such a tizzy.

Right! We should blow another half trillion of failed stimulus to provide jobs at $375,000 per job! We need jobs. It matters not who is going to pay for them. Just think of the benefit! New jobs!

No wonder the country is broke.

BTW, my dining room table is 80 years old, the kitchen table is going on 40 years old, the sofa is 1985.....I did buy 3 recliner chairs in the last 12 years. The TV is 20 years old

The computer is 2 years old...that makes a difference.
