The Obama Effect: Your Electric Rates Go Up

Per the predictions of anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear:

...Bills will still rise in 2012 because of higher fuel costs, mainly the price of coal burned in power plants and transportation costs for coal. Residential customers would see an increase of 0.7%, adding 77 cents a month for a typical residential customer now paying $104.90 a month for electricity. Business customers would see increases of 1% to 1.1%, though the size of the increase will be decided late this year.

Coal's up because Obama is fighting coal tooth and nail, famously remarking that "your costs will skyrocket" if you have a coal-burning electric generating facility; 'transportation costs' rose because Obama will not drill anyplace in the US for oil.

And that jerk wants to be re-elected?

This is only the beginning.  The EPA has decided to go ahead with new boiler rules (MACT) which are going to be horrifically expensive.  Indiana expects that the new rules will force the closure of 1/12th of its electrical generating capacity.

Jeepers. That's almost $10/yr. You could buy a lot of ammo with that kind of change.

Your right Anony 7:59, its only 10 bucks. Why don't you pay it for me then? And dad also. That would only be 20 a year extra. Right?

As per usual, AnonySqueak 8/11/2011 7:59 PM completely misses the point. Liberals masking as conservatives ALWAYS miss the point.

Stuff 10 bucks for me in that gaping hole in your liberal heart to stop the bleeding, would'ya AnonySquonk?!

Except, my dear St. Revolution, it was a different anony talking at 7:59 p.m., not yours truly. That's what I expect from Ideologue theocrats like yourself.

Saint Revolution said...

Yeah, sure, Anony.

It was a different Anony.

Yeah, sure...NO, I believe you.

...ideologue theocrat?!

a person who zealously advocates an ideology

a person who rules, governs as a representative of God or a deity, or is a member of the ruling group in a theocracy, as a divine king or a high priest
a person who favors theocracy

So I am a "person-person"?!

How-how is-is that-that possible-possible,, oh-oh blog-blog author-author of-of infinite-infinite mistakes-mistakes?

By the by, oh idiot-syncratic one, you yourself are an ideologue and a where's the "dig" and what's wrong with being an ideologue and a theocrat?

Your retort is neither insulting nor sensical.

Thanks for the compliments.

I'm also a sexist, an alpha male, a revolutionary, I have a genius IQ...oh, and I like peanut butter.

Anything else you wanna know? I'll have to ask my second "person".... where is that second "person"?...I know I put him around here somewhere....hmmmmm....

Here we go again, Dad...

Not Quite "Saint" revolution, you have yet to claim that anony is a Freemason and is using his Bildeberg connections to rule the new one world order. As evidenced by the black helicopters that are only stopped with tin foil.

Gotta admit, Anon, you always do a grand job of tracking me down...
