Why I'm a conservative #101

As you read this, ask yourself the question who does this hurt more

1) a pediatrician
2) a retiree on fixed income
3) Katy Perry
4) Lawrence Fishburne
5) a civil engineer

In the midst of an unparalleled energy boom, U.S. electricity prices have skyrocketed to new highs. 

This paradox is a result not of the free market, but of runaway government "green" regulation.

Unnoticed by virtually everyone except the sharp-eyed folks at, new federal data show that electricity prices have never been higher.

In November, the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Electricity Price Index hit 202.284, an all-time record and nearly 20% higher than just six years ago.

I keep wondering when the media will challenge the myth that liberal policies work for the poor.
