Let PSC decide ??? HAHA!!!

What like the Democrat monopoly legislature & Govs decided on 2 PREVIOUS mergers/acquisitions regarding BGE/Constellation (PEPCO & FPL) that would have ultimately SAVED the company and its jobs, and 1 of Maryland's LAST Fortune 500 companies???

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

O'Malley's new campaign slogan should be... "We've made your bed for you, now go sleep in it, IN THE DARK DAMNIT!"

My 2nd choice would be "How many O'Malleys does it take to SCREW UP a light bulb?"

Oh yes, by all means let the Maryland PSC decide this complicated matter. I am sure O'Malley will be telling the head of the PSC and other members to really review this matter fairly and don't be influenced by his opinions (wink, wink, wink). O'Malley, Shattuck, Miller, Busch and the GA members are all responsible for the problem.

I did not know that the Governor had the ability to allow the sale. The PSC has the say but I agree with the other posters, we could be in for another rocky ride. Fasten your seat belts folks. Who knows any more they just keep pushing it on us and then tell us how good it is for us. Ya think sometime they would just leave it alone.

HELP

By taking this apporach he can push the blame to PSC if it turns out bad, or take thecredit if it works out. Typical MOM approach worry more about balme than fixing a situation.

Fabby, have you not read anything? Constellation would stay in Baltimore, along with the jobs and everything else.

If you believe that, then I have a bridge to sell you! HAHA!

Baltimore will still lose a Fortune 500 company and Maryland will get cheated out of tax revenue eventually just like the stockholders are getting cheated now. And the cost of the buyout will mean rates will ultimately go up again.

Oh, but there will definitely be cost savings eventually, errrrr, LAYOFFS down the road. Trust me or buy that bridge from me please. Oh thats right you already did the equivalent of that by voting for <30% approval rating Gov. O'Malley, the Chief Grandstander of the Poor. He loves the poor, so much so that he creates more poor people every day in office!

Oh, and I know The Sun doesn't want to admit that it ran a story saying the Ehrlich plan for CEG/BGE regarding the FPL merger and rates would have been better, but ooops, The Sun already WROTE that story. Can't put the cat back in the bag now Baltimore Sun. You've already got enough egg on your journalistic face.

Yes, truth be told... The Ehrlich plan would have prevented this mess.

Our unpopular idiot Governor finally surfaces!

He was the one that promised that most would pay less in taxes and that only the "evil" rich would pay more. Obama is peddling the same lies. We will all directly or indirectly pay more to government under Obama. Less for you and your family and more and more for Obama and Owe'Malley.
