Nor do they have to. Congress and your state government doesn't require them to do so.

Government is not the customer. It is the customer that controls the money that funds the companies. Stop paying the electric bills because of poor service and if you get enough they will charge more and do a better job. Government is not the savior.

Really. Can you provide a link to an affordable source and post pictures of the one your house is running on?

Lol. Yeah that's real affordable. That's what. 20+ years on the payback and then it would need to be replaced? Not viable.

Then children are not viable either. At over $250k you do not get the return on you money.

Oh but you must have NOT had any to think that. Mine have returned many times over the original investment. Maybe if yours haven't it isn't THEY who are the problem. Just a thought.

Each person has to determine THEIR OWN value. I've done so and have determined I now have gained many riches since becoming a parent.

It's the government that give out the welfare checks to the energy companies which is far more than the cost of your energy

Exactly what electric company gets welfare? Most have to pay back bonds on their debt.
