An engineer within the state Utilities Commission recently predicted that rates for electricity could potentially double by 2026. And to compound the problem, Jon Sanders of the John Locke Foundation points out that we will have less reliable electricity when we are paying those high rates.
Sanders blames this situation on poor policy choices. By whom? The Marxist governor and his Utilities Commission and also the Republican General Assembly.
But that is not all. Long term readers might recall that Governor Cooper previously acted in a corrupt manner to grant a pipeline permit only if the pipeline company agreed to pay a huge bounty to his favored interest groups. Unfortunately, the state legislature did not hold him accountable.
Now, Cooper is apparently interjecting himself into another pipeline permitting process, and calling for the project to be denied. What would be the cost for getting it approved this time, Roy?
We rely on one natural gas pipeline for our supply in North Carolina. If that shuts down, we are out of luck. But Governor Cooper doesn’t care.
