Decision being made tomorrow.
We trust you to protect us from the thieves who would gouge us and basically rip us off. Are you turning on us?
I refer of course to this new electricity company bailout, a heinous and corrupt act that flies in the face of alleged "free market" ideology, the kind that we are force fed daily. If the electrical companies go bankrupt, then so be it. Take the companies public. Buy them out.
This deregulation is directly to blame for the artificial power shortage and extortion by the generators. The deregulation should be reversed. The state should learn the error of its ways, and seek to correct this outrageous and carastrophic theft.
Bailing out these companies with rate hikes does not remedy the problem. It only proves to the extorters that they can get away with it. They'll do it again. Look for more "shortages" and rate hikes. This is madness and corruption in broad daylight.
Los Angeles isn't facing any rate hikes, because LA kept the power public. Are we learning nothing here?
I will vote against a governor who sells me out to the electricity cartel in the next election.
