    That was one of obama's campaign promises and it's happening in Los Angeles.

    L.A. utility rates: L.A. DWP seeks rate hike to meet expenses - Los Angeles Times

    The average utility bill for Los Angeles Department of Water and Power customers will need to increase by $19 over the next three years to meet expenses, the head of the agency said Tuesday.

    General Manager Ron Nichols said an annual increase of about 5% for both water and electricity rates is crucial to the DWP complying with new environmental requirements and protecting its credit rating.


    While residential bills will rise, businesses will pass the costs of their own hike to consumers who will be paying commercial increases right along with their own.

    The obamapain just keeps getting better.

    Obama's energy agenda is mega-costly to consumers. He said it himself in 2009.

    Too funny; your giving credit to Obama for low oil prices? What a fucking fool! The Oil and gas industry found better ways to get gas out of the ground causing the prices to fall despite Obama and his drones closing off all federal lands and tripling the price of drilling permits on private lands and taking three times as long to get a permit. What has occurred is INSPITE OF OBAMA's and the LEFTS agenda. And the price per KWH has jumped from 0.04C to 0.22C,,, I dont know where you get your info but it isn't from real sources. Did you get them from OBAMA and his drones. Now that is a lying sack of shit.
