Why is what SCE&G and Santee Cooper did legal? They charged their customers in advance $2 billion for a project they are now abandoning? Then they say they will not refund the money and may continue to charge their customers for their losses? There is something very, very wrong about this picture.
Jim Bakker was put in jail for doing something like this with Heritage USA. But these people are protected by the law. Take a look at the top five salaries at SCE&G. It will shock you: More than $13 million a year total. They have no clue about the poor people who staked their livelihood and future on this project and have raped them as well as their customers. They are a monopoly and think they can do whatever they please with their customers’ money.
Something must be done to punish them.
