Senator Scott Weiner (D) introduces a bill to financially nail Californians that can least afford the most expensive energy in the nation.

My entire life I have been a fan of the US. I have been there many times, lived there twice for a short time, and always had plans in the back of my head to move back there sometime. Today, for the first time I am glad I live here in Austria and not in the US. Don’t get me wrong – there are still plenty of great places like Texas, Florida, or a number of mid-western states but California and New York go down the drain.
