It works like this..We have to tell PUCO/PUKE-O what to do?
I thought they were the watchdogs for these price gouging utilities.
Must be a banner year for bribes for PUKE-O executives.
The customer is screwed . First for profit companies notice hire lawyers to work the system of laws the big companies buy by bribing the union workers and the politicians(aka johns). And since for profit companies seem to be letting greed take over and run wild while not caring who they hurt, who goes with out power, or that teir CEO/top execs make such nice million dollars plus profits and company owners make billions never to have to worr y about electric prices food cost, medical cost, gas cost and nor do they really care since $.15 a gallon of gas to $4.35 gallon doesn't even scratch their pocket book/ big bank accounts.
Sure govrnment is supposed to help and unions are supposed to be on our side for the people, but unfortunately often enough or to often anyhow they take bribes and go with the money. Can this be proven? No seldom it is, only when they are caught with their hand in the "cookie jar" does a little some thing happen, and then the next person that gets in does about the same thing..
Is this fixable? Yees by having transparency and documents/paper work online easily accesed on votes, and have the union people/rep easily booted by a consumer vote/majority.
DOesn't fix company greed, not much can be done there greed is selfishness a lousy trait and when it takes over and lets a person not care who htey hurt who they lie to or who they disturb, then it's an issue that needs to be brought out into public humiliated, and found some way alternative around using thier product or service to put them out of buisness.
