Here’s an alternative view, and it’s not what you think. De-regulation and the axis of weasels are to blame, not the $50 billion to repair aged transmission system the president would have you think is at fault. More lining of greedy weasel’s pockets, or paranoid ‘the black helicopters are circling’ from the left? You decide. Me? I’d love the opportunity to go weasel hunting with a 12-guage.
What’s tragic is the same millions of brain dead idiots who bought the ‘we must stop the weapons of mass destruction’ in Iraq will buy the ‘we have to raise rates to the tune of 50 billion to cover the expense of transmission line upgrades’ and suck it up and pay still more for electricity while the axis of weasels line their pockets with the dividends this will pay for them. God I wish people weren’t so fucking stupid.
