The Maine Public Utilities Commission is set up to oversee and regulate utilities. If our utilities are out of control, who is to blame? One obvious answer is elected officials, the same folks we’re being asked to hand total control of the power grid.

It’s ridiculous to think that government can effectively oversee and regulate something it owns. When we’re done buying out the utilities’ assets, what’s next? Perhaps cable or the phone company!
