The number of households that had their utility service disconnected for nonpayment rose 5% in fiscal 2009. According to the National Energy Assistance Directors Association, 4.3 million U.S. households were disconnected for nonpayment in fiscal year 2009. Is this not total madness? The environweenies are causing energy costs to go through the roof and our tax dollars are going to subsidize those who can't afford to heat their homes. Federal assistance has more than doubled to $5.1 billion.
Not unlike the way the left piles on taxes and regulation to kill business -- and jobs -- and then comes to the "rescue" with extensions of unemployment benefits!
