Hopefully government and big business have learned from this fiasco. There is a reason why this country is called "the land of the free". Now, we just need to get the idiots who reside in Congress to learn this lesson as well as they contemplate the ill-advised 'health care reform" and "cap-and-tax" bills that will remove the freedom of choice from everyone.

The consumers'advocates were only taking care of themselves by approving the CFL program of FirstEnergy. It is very simple - more profits to utility company means more money in their own budgets - approved by these utility companies. These so called consumer advocates woke up and cried 'foul' once they saw that consumers were intelligent people and could call the Governor's office and PUCO. If consumers had not called, it would have been yet another program which would create millions for FE and in-turn would translate into budget increases for the agency. Consumers' advocate approved this only after calculating all the 'profits' that this would create for themselves.
