Electric bills up 14 to 78 percent, PG senators want to raise them even higher

First the Democrats broke their promises and allowed obscene electric
rate increases to go into effect. Then they passed the largest tax
increase in Maryland history. Now they are working hard to raise
electric rates again. This is the party that claims to be looking out
for the common people???
