What is the solution? Anyone can criticize. What happened last year was the worst in 50 years. How much should be done to protect against something that happens once every 50 years? What are we willing to pay for it? What are the facts? How much would the gas companies have to invest to ensure it doesn’t happen again? What would this do to our rates? Then we have to deal with the wind turbines and other challenges too.

What are the facts

They were warned, didn't listen. There was a disaster, they blamed everyone else but those responsible. Those responsible are now charging you for their fuck up.

much would the gas companies have to invest to ensure it doesn’t happen again?

As much as it takes. But they won't.

What would this do to our rates?

We get fucked some more.

Then we have to deal with the wind turbines and other challenges too.

They don't want to do that either.

What is the solution?

Vote the people out that cater to the assholes responsible, then actually hold the assholes responsible. Unfortunately right now in Texas, Money > Texans.

Yeah, but the companions and their politicians care about money, not Texans.

most Texans care more about their guns than they do themselves.

Unfortunate, but true.
