Wall Street was solidly in the Romney/Ryan camp last time, pjohnf. (And assuming he's the nominee, they'll certainly be in Ryan's camp in 2016.) Why is it that you seem to think that they're Obama supporters?

When did presidential libraries start taking this kind of funding? (I always thought they were privately funded... or at least I remember hearing that the Clinton and Bush #43 libraries were being done that way.)

Off-topic, but just to clarify, I will say that the disabled individuals that I've worked with aren't the least bit interested in free phones or anything like that. (Many of them will never live independently in their own communities; any such "bribes" would be meaningless to them.) Of course there are opportunists who do try to take advantage of every social program under the sun, and…

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton, and Bush 2, had libraries built with private funds. I can't believe Soros or Buffett (or the Clinton's ;P) aren't contributing to the bill for Obama. Rahm is even stumping for it, as he says it will be a big tourism money maker. Hey, I'm all for it, if it is. On a side note, I think this is the first presidential…

I honestly couldn't care less about anybody's party affiliation. This ID issue actually has A LOT to do with poor people, the elderly, and people with disabilities -- regardless of their personal politics. (There are a lot of poor people in the south who are lifelong Republicans.) Arbitrarily-enacted voter ID laws ultimately won't disenfranchise you or me... but they do have a real…

Christmas just came early for Downstate Illinois, but not for Ameren Illinois

From from herald-review.com:

Christmas just came early for Central Illinois, but not for Ameren Illinois. Regulators have told the utility to cut the rates it charges for delivering electricity by $45 million in 2014.

Next up will be a natural gas delivery rate reset, and this time, an administrative law judge, who makes recommendations as part of the state’s utility bill review process, is calling for the utility to get $36 million in annual revenue from its gas customers instead of the $47 million it had asked for.

The state’s utility regulators, the Illinois Commerce Commission, will meet to decide the gas rate Dec. 18.

Its decision to cut 2014 electricity rates was announced late Monday, takes effect Jan. 1 and will last a year under a new annual system of billing reviews known as formula ratemaking. Ameren Illinois is expected to be back before the ICC by the spring to request new electricity delivery rates for 2015.

In the meantime, the utility said Monday that it hasn’t had a chance to review the 2014 decision and figure out what action it may take.
