What a predictament to be in. My heart went out to this guy who is going through this situation in his late 60's.
Unfortunately, there are many like him. Even here in the states.
However, I think the utility rates should have gone up. It is one of the few feasible solutions. The govt needs the revenue. They were kept artificially low for decades....Many people were also pilfering their utilities.... Some in the lower income caserios just didn't bother to pay them. Period. That was abuse.
Governor Padilla has to make the difficult decisions and he's making them.
I'm glad he is doing them only a year into his term. He still has time to recover from the fallout until the next election. Let's see how it will pan out.
