Translation: "Let's see how many top earners we can force out of Kalifornia". The democrats in Cali are determined to make the entire state look like Detroit and they've been pretty successful so far. U-Haul must love the leftist politicians there.

The pronoun "his" is used. Isn't that non woke? Last winter during the Artic blast some people in Tenn lost power during when the temperature was in the teens. Storms? Maybe. More likely the demand for electricity exceeded their ability to supply it So they just threw the switch and let us hillbillies shiver in the dark.

My bill has never in 24 years been as low as the highest value in the list. I am on my own well. All water is provided by electricity. If people are given a flat rate, what will be the reason to limit usage?

OK - so say you’re paying according to income, not use - how will those who have purchased solar panels feel? Especially if they have paid outright for their panels and own them completely, all to reduce their power bills? Will their bills increase greatly if their income is high? What incentive is there to conserve energy? What a future mess.

This raises an interesting question. How is Governor Moosalini going to get the income info about who's going to pay more or less on their electricity bills? Are the various agencies going to turn over privileged info on their citizens? What about bartering or selling on Craig's List? Californians will start selling and buying underground if the politicians start these Marxists policies. Finally, if all of this is based on income, WHY WORK? This is Communism straight and forward!

That sounds more like a tax than a payment for services. On a related subject, check out the Lava Ridge Wind project which will consist of 400 turbines up to 740 feet on 197,000 public (BLM) land in Idaho. Associated infrastructure will include new roads, powerlines, substations, maintenance facilities and battery storage facilities. The dirty little secret is that the power generated will go to California, or so I have heard but can't confirm. My Idaho Power bill just jumped 25%; coincidence?

If I were in California and in a higher income bracket and had to pay a higher fixed rate, you'd be sure that I would have every single light in the house on and the AC or heat on max cool/heat. And to answer #19, they know your income from your CA tax returns.

Republican Senator Chuck Grassley said the Burisma executive who allegedly paid Joe Biden a bribe has kept 17 audio recordings of phone calls as an 'insurance policy.' According to a 'highly credible' whistleblower, an internal FD-1023 memo created in 2020 based off information from a highly-paid FBI informant apparently details a $5 million 'arrangement' for an exchange of money for policy decisions between then-Vice President Joe Biden and a foreign national. In a bombshell speech on the Senate floor Monday, the Iowa lawmaker cited what is believed to have been redacted in the FD-1023 file from the FBI on the alleged payment.
