Texas GOP deregulated itself into blackouts and power failure. Utility companies went cheap..

To increase profits, Texas power companies went cheap after their state GOP dominated legislative bodies no longer required regulations that planned for future stresses to the power grid.

A weak power grid is prone to any stress, like a cold spell.

GOP deregulation kills.

Texas GOP are murderers.

(Texas utility companies tend to be huge GOP donors)

Should Dems investigate the Texas GOP for these treasonous acts?

1. Yeah, they deregulated the customers out of the equation and left the rules to the industry

to set as they saw fit. Of course the residential and/or other customers got screwed in the process, while the industry got away w/ not having to spend 10s of millions, probably more money to update the infrastructure. Heads should roll, especially when these slack rules put so many at risk.
