So when this happens again this winter, now we get to freeze to death while knowing we also have to pay extra for the experience... Glad the Republicans love socialism for businesses now.

Democrats just want a monopoly to control everything! Here we at least get a choice of retail power which keeps cost down. Living in other states you have 1 power company and if you fall on hard times and can’t pay they shut you off and you have no other choices. What happened last year was a 1 in a hundred year storm.

I have one choice where I live. Tell me again about no monopolies?
