The article is all good and nice but if the reason Met-Ed rates didn't go up that high are true, then why hasn't PPL dropped their rates? Sounds like PPL is a bunch of crooks!

Please don't talk about PPL like that. They gave a lot of money to Tom Corbett and will continue to support Republicans so that they can continue to charge rates they feel their customers can afford.
It is the new corporate philosophy. Charge what your customers can afford not what is fair. It is like when you by a car and the salesmans asks, "How much per money are you looking to spend?" then they find the crappiest car to mark up to your price range.
Same theory here, but they just don't ask and charge you what their shareholders want to see on the income statement. Then they find the cheapest electricy and sell it to you regardless of what they paid for it.

Lmao ! What, Met-Ed seems to be everyone,s friend for now. Don,t let them feel you. Check there stocks out. Over the top. No need to raise the rate,s one bet but hey that,s gave are stock holder,s raise. When are you people going to see the greed. What does it take the moon to hit you in the head. The last two year,s look at the greed . The banks still giving the C E O,S over the top bonus,s on your money. The govement will not gave S, S a raise and why because they say the cost of living did not go up will isn,t Met-Ed a cost of living. The rate,s are going up so that means the cost of living is going up all so. Just let then keep throwing the crap at you. I see the mexicans are taking over this country anyway,s so I think I,ll move down there like some other white people are. Heck it,s cheaper and safer to live there now that most of them are living here.

Even on Sunday, "what" and "why" can't stop their mind-numbing hate-mogering of Senator Folmer. What a couple of brain-damaged jerks.

I think What and Why should get the electric chair. Met-Ed are coxsuckers and not politically influenced.
J'ever try to shop for electric in Lebanon?

You know I have nothing against a working man take a break, but check out all the Met ED line crews sitting every morning at Mels diner, heisey's, Farmers wife, etc.. I like their act at the Farmers wife, they park their trucks at Donmoyers and walk over to the diner, I'm surprised they have that much ambition.
