    This is WRONG. No power company should get a windfall because of a natural disaster, and Texans shouldn’t get hammered by ridiculous rate increases for last week’s energy debacle. State and local regulators should act swiftly to prevent this injustice.

    • The Texas market is working exactly as designed. And people signed up for variable rates. It’s only an issue now, though!

        I sniff a Conservative bailout for these poor power companies who won't be able to collect these bills - privatize the profits, socialize the losses.
        If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

          Fun fact: Warm Springs is the poorest, saddest place I've ever been, on reservation land just north of Madras. It's the kind of place where entire families sit on the bench outside the CVS huffing from a bag, and dogs with broken limbs drag around in the street with nobody noticing them.

          They hauled a kid out of my dorm back in school with a .45. He couldn't do much more than just lay there, let alone be driving a car.

            I'm not an AOC fan but she's truly doing wonderful work here. Absolute credit where it's due - she came through for Texans when their own leadership refused.
            And yet, no unity from the Democrats.

              GOP Texas rep was already on CNN or somewhere, saying that's what the Fed bailout money was for, to pay those bills for people.

              They were right, elect Biden, and you get Socialism.

                Depends on your tolerance. Hardcore alcoholics can get really high BACs and actually be pretty functional.

                  It’s the least she can do after her green new deal froze Texas last week

                      Drink heavily every day for a month or more and your body will go into detox while your BAC is still well above the legal limit.

                              There's a probably a good chunk of people that may not have known they were on variable rate plans. When I moved there I had signed up for a fixed rate plan through TXU, but when that expired they automatically switched me to a month to month variable rate plan without my knowledge, and with no communication to me about needing to renew. I'd imagine there are a lot of people with high bills in a similar boat.

                              • From the NYT, re the contest in MN to name snow plows:

                                “"Abolish ICE" was one of the top suggestions in Minnesota's snowplow naming contest, but it was excluded from the short list. “There’s certainly a time and place for political expression,” a state transportation department spokesman said. “A snowplow naming contest might not be the appropriate place for that.”
