Interesting article, is there any requirement to provide the correct zip code? if it's not for CC authorization then how would the merchant or gas pump know that's the correct number?
If you're living off the government's dime you shouldn't be spending your money on drugs. Especially when it's taxpayer money. I think most of the funding will be coming from the amount of money saved when the bums start failing the drug tests and lose their welfare checks.
I don't get it, this is not a government handout, this is ameren charging the people more for the product they purchase. It happens everywhere in capitalism but only utility companies have to beg the government to increase their rates. 3blindmice did you even read the article?? Do you know that rate payers means customers of Ameren? it's not government money that is going to this company. Not to mention the fact that it creates hundreds of good paying permanent jobs and thousands of temporary jobs. This will give the state the shot in the arm it needs. I suggest you get the facts 3blindmice. It is you who is blind.
I can hardly make out your cryptic language but it seems to imply that taxpayers are sponsoring ameren's nuclear site permit. Maybe since you can't write you can't read either. If the bill passes ameren could charge their customers, not taxpayers, extra for electricity in order to pay for the permit. Just like any other business would raise the cost of their product to expand their infrastructure. Ameren merely has to beg the government to allow them to change the price of the product they sell.
WHAT?!? If a grocery store wants to build a new branch they just charge their customers more money before they build it, and they may or may not build it. What's the difference? They are not just getting money from anybody, they are wanting to charge more for a service that they provide just like any place else. If you don't have the facts, please don't comment.
