what ameren is doing to the illinois cictizens is nothing short of terrorism , one has to wonder how many ties they have to al--qiueda !! we heard this rate hike would amount to alot less than the 100-300 percent increase in customers bills . and it gets better just wait till the summer months arrive and they double your bill again . and their service over the last year was horrible with the power outages that many people endured due to a simple failure of ameren to trim the trees back from the power lines . and that gets better also take a drive around your area and just observe how many tree branches endangering powerr lines there are still remaining . illinois certauinly needs a power company to compete with ameren wont take much to beat their maitinenece service and a cakewalk to beat their prices .

Ameren makes that Missouri bandit Jesse James look like a first grader. Why did our Illinois legislators let this happen? I am sure that we will not see this extortion happen to their Missouri customers. I have a small amount of Ameren stock which I am going to sell. The total dividends paid will be eaten up by my January bill of $600 for electric heat. No person or business will want to locate in Illinois!

I do not understand why Ameren is taking the brunt of all this. Who in the heck decided on the 10 year rate freeze to begin with? Yes, our "trusty government". Had there never been a rate freeze, the rates would have had a gradual increase and we would not be being hit so hard. So why not find a new government - sure don't hear anyone talking about that - you know why, because they are the power and they are untouchable.
