Our governmental leaders are supposed to serve the voters, but when it comes to the failed nuclear plant construction plan by SCE&G and Santee Cooper, they abdicated that servant role and rubber-stamped a bill that now smells like theft, and the customers of the two electric utilities are the crime victims.
Two thoughts sum up this fiasco. The first is the quote, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” The second is the phrase caveat emptor, Latin for “let the buyer beware.”
The voters can hand the legislators who passed the law for SCE&G a vote of no confidence. SCE&G (SCANA) and Santee Cooper should be fined and made to pay restitution. Anything less just condones the piracy that has impacted and will continue to impact us.
