    Default 11% Electric Rate Increase - Ouch!

    Dec 1, 2010
    SANTO DOMINGO. The price of the electricity rates will undergo an 11% increase on all types of service this month, according to a report from the Superintendent of Electricity (SIE).

    Government increases electricity rates by 11% - DiarioLibre.com

    And of course, that's not just our home electric costs going up. It will lead to rises in most things we buy as costs are passed along to consumers. Higher energy cost means jump in prices, business leaders say

    But with the increased cost, just think how much better the service will be, as the extra profits are used to update the system. And then, all the street lights will work and our appliances won't need replacing after three years.

    (when you read that, imagine me saying it in a very sarcastic voice)

    People always seem to complain about useless politicians in General.

    But to me the Dominican politicians do seem particularly pro-active and efficient at what they do.

    Less for more. This fits perfectly into my mottos like:

    Buy high sell low
    Lose money on every transaction but make it up in volume.

    Normal thinking to me

    Don't forget lying, benefiting their relatives and friends, and picking out the flashiest jeepetas. Not to mention still managing to get people to vote for them.
