Public Utility's can't lose money so it all gets passed to the consumer in some way, shape or form.

This is what kills me. The loons here are all about green energy, killing the coal industry, rejecting nuclear power then complain about the rate hikes passed on them BECAUSE of them. Stupid people, ban them.

Exactly.

Another thing is to complain about the tax on hybrid cars yet don't realize that the taxes would be lower if the money actually went to where it's supposed to go. But the money is diverted to other areas. I think toll roads should be in use simply because the money would actually be used to upkeep them. As it stands now, all the gas taxes collected when compared to the crumbling bridges on top of the crappy roads shows us just how ineffective the government really is.
