Time to start
Ameren critic

Where is everyone? Isn't it time to start the Ameren bashing? This latest ice storm has got to be their fault. After all, they've had over a month since the last storm to trimm the tree's away from their entire system. I'll bet their lineworkers have all been sitting in their trucks eating donuts for the last couple of days too. Never mind that there are power outages from Texas to Illinois, this all has to be Ameren's fault! If the power is out for more than 3 days, they should have to start giving it away for free!

heres one for you pay my power bill and i'll shut up. Until then I have something to worry about. You must sleep well at night not caring about others who dont have as much as you do.

I didnt see where Ameren Critic said anything about not caring about others. It seems to me you are on the defensive period. We are all going to pay the price for the increase, however, I guarantee that none of us would be willing to have our wages frozen for 10+ years.

Why is everyone blaming Ameren? Who decided on the 10 year rate freeze to begin with - hmmm, I wonder - the government - you betcha.
Had the increases been phased in over 10 years, this hard hit we are all taking, wouldn't be so drastic.
Greed it what put us all in this prediciment in the 1st place - everyone was sooooooo happy for a 10 year freeze, now look, everyone is crying.
