Power company: You tell us to cut back on electricity to save money, and then you hike the rates because you're not getting the same revenues as before. THAT'S A LESS FOR MORE CATCH-22.
County: You go around jacking up peoples' home values to get more tax revenue from it even though there's no way the houses can be sold for such prices, and people are losing their homes because they can't afford the rate hike. More homeless people?! GREAT JOB.
Big business = jerks.
