The more things change the more they stay the stay the same. The Public Service Criminals are at it again. They are raising your power bill rates. That will be four times since July.
Is anyone surprised here? They have never seen a rate increase they did not like. These four rate increases will total almost 300 dollars per year on the 1.88 million Alabama households. Anyone doing the math? That's almost 600 million dollars per year.
But maybe we would not have this problem if not for overage charges or "The Hidden Tax." Last year the Public Service Criminals charged the utility companies 14 million dollars to regulate them. Now how much do you think it should cost to do that? I am surprised they only spent 200k on travel expenses. It's time to audit their offices.
For the life of me how these three Criminals get re-elected is mind-blowing. We need change. Ratepayers we can start in two years by storming the castle like peaseants of old with pitchforks by dethrowning Queen Twinkle at the ballot box and putting a public servant on the PSC. Send them a message. Throw the bums out.
