so, there is no immediate alternative to using the existing ash disposal areas.....

"See how Hawaii's governor told Rep. Darrell Issa to stuff it

April 28, 2014, 9:18 a.m.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Vista, the House GOP's mangy attack dog, has squandered his chairmanship of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform trying to embarrass the Obama administration over a host of ginned-up purported scandals. The IRS, Benghazi--you know the list.

Democrats try to push back against Issa's scandal-mongering, but it's doubtful anyone has done so as directly and succinctly as Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie, who fired back last month with a letter ridiculing Issa for his habit of conducting investigations as exercises in "ready, fire, aim."

At issue were Issa's allegations that a host of state health insurance enrollment websites were vulnerable to hackers.

"The personal information of millions of Americans who have sought to obtain coverage through the exchanges was put at risk" by the Obama administration's decision to launch enrollment under the Affordable Care Act on Oct. 1, wrote Issa and two other Republican committee members. Their point was that the White House allowed several state health insurance exchanges to tie in to federal databases without being properly vetted for security.

Their March 25 letters went out to the governors of 10 states and to the District of Columbia, demanding information about their state websites' security flaws and accusing some of squandering federal funds to set up their websites. Hawaii, they charged, spent $205 million in federal grants to enroll just 5,000 customers, at $44,000 per enrollee.

Um, not so fast, replied Abercrombie. "Your letter is full of mistakes, misrepresentations, omissions, and false assertions....Because of your flawed assumptions and mistakes, you have predictably reached erroneous conclusions. With a little due diligence, you and your committee staffers could easily have avoided these errors."

Most of that grant money hadn't yet been spent at all, Abercrombie said. Only $23 million went to set up the Hawaii insurance website, which as of March 31 had enrolled 30,400 individuals and families, of whom about 22,000 have gone into Medicaid. As state officials pointed out, Hawaii's proportion of uninsured residents, 8%, was already among the lowest in the nation, so its insurance website was never expected to be a major portal for private coverage. As for its supposed insecurity, the exchange hasn't had a single security breach since going live on Oct. 15.

Issa's committee didn't respond to our request for information on responses from the other states--Abercrombie's office confirmed the text of his letter--but Covered California, this state's Obamacare exchange, says it also replied. Its letter is here. Contrary to Issa's assertions that the California website was insecure and vulnerable to hackers, Covered California stated that its site had completed all necessary security testing before getting permission to connect to the federal government's data system.

What's most telling about Issa's letters--and most typical--is that they haven't led to any useful "oversight" by his committee. Then again, they weren't really aimed at developing information that might point to and remedy a genuine problem of governmental administration. Instead, they were designed to make a big splash with conservative news outlets, which obligingly trumpeted Issa's accusations at high volume.

But when the responses indicated that the issues Issa identified didn't exist, he dropped the subject. At least, that's how it appears; both Hawaii and California say they never heard a peep from Issa's committee after returning their responses in the first week of April...>"

And that's in addition to them 'legally' pumping the stuff into the river.
so, there was a failure of a large stormwater pipe under the ash pond at a retired plant, that allowed ash and water to be discharged to the river.....

this is a significant problem, but one that can be fixed....

all of the ash ponds were constructed and operated in accordance with state and federal regulations and permits in effect at the time........

many of the plants were Progress Energy plants that Duke inherited through a recent purchase of Progress Energy....although Duke is now responsible, they didn't make any of the prior decisions....

so, the question is whether your objective is to solve the problems or bankrupt the company......

Report: Obama’s Economy Converts Middle-Class Jobs Into Low-Wage Jobs

Nearly half of the new jobs created since 2008 are low-wage jobs, while 80 percent of the jobs destroyed in the government-inflated real-estate bubble were high-wage or medium-wage jobs, according to a new report by the National Employment Law Project.

In effect, almost 2 million well-paid middle-class jobs have been converted into low-wage blue-collar jobs since January 2008, through the five years of President Barack Obama’s economy, according to the report, titled “The Low-Wage Recovery: Industry Employment and Wages Four Years into the Recovery.”

You had never heard of Valerie Jarrett or her power over this president, Saul Alinsky and his Rules for Radicals and levels of control of which Obama and Hillary were two of his alumni, or Obama's connection to corrupt politicians and his Marxist mentors had it not been for "Glenda Beck" and then me having to repeatedly convince you he was telling the truth.
Remember when you would think all of this was total nonsense and absolutely hilarious? Like these people and Obama's past were just figments of Beck's and my imagination?
I remember it distinctly. Turns out you had to be convinced on a number of things you thought were "gibberish" - sometimes even the headlines on CNN and MSNBC.
But you probably forgot.
Are you ever going to stop falsely accusing me of your own shortcomings?
Yeah, keep ignoring the fact that your Tea Party is one of the biggest practitioners of Alinsky's principles.

If the ACA ends up assisting me, it will be at your expense. Unless you're older than 39 or your income isn't high enough to fork over a high premium up front.
Still trying to figure out who's paying for all of this wonderful free health care. Any idea?
What free healthcare dumbass? The ACA doesn't provide for any such thing. You still have to purchase your coverage and pay for any deductibles and co-pays.
By the way Carol since you're a diabetic and your husband now has a history of skin cancer, insurance companies could deny you coverage if it wasn't for the ACA mandating that they couldn’t pick and choose who they sold policies to.
