California Electric Bills Will Be Based On How Much You Earn
“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”
By Daniel Greenfield
Following the words of Karl Marx, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”, California’s corrupt power monopolies are going full Commie.
Three major utility companies in California are looking to restructure customer billing, and part of that means customers could be charged based on how much money they make.
Sure, why not? Charging people based on what they use, rather than the tier they occupy in the social justice human pyramid is too capitalist anyway.
Southern California Edison, Pacific Gas & Electric and San Diego Gas & Electric filed a joint proposal this week for a flat-rate charge based on income.
The income-based bill proposal is part of the companies’ compliance with legislation passed by the California state government last year requiring these types of plans for utilities.
What’s next, a proposal for supermarkets that can charge you based on your income for bread and eggs? Also, Best Buy should charge you for a new phone based on your earnings. Airline tickets? There can be three tiers based on earnings.
Not that it matters how much California utilities charge for power that they can’t deliver anyway to people fleeing the state as fast as they can.
If you like your Communism, you can keep your Communism.
