Argenziano quits utility reg panel, endorses Sink

by Dara Kam | October 12th, 2010

Nancy Argenziano resigned from the Florida Public Service Commission to endorse Alex Sink for governor, she told reporters this afternoon.

The life-long Republican and former lawmaker said today would be her final day on the utility regulatory panel, where she was appointed by Gov. Charlie Crist nearly four years ago.

A fired-up Argenziano, an outspoken critic of GOP leaders of the Florida Legislature, said she was quitting so she could speak out in favor of Sink, a Democrat.

“I cannot imagine a more noxious mix of government than that which the legislative leaders and Rick Scott concoction would produce,” Argenziano said. “I’m terrified if Rick Scott became governor…With Alex Sink, I do believe she has integrity.

Argenziano was passed over for reappointment by a panel of lawmakers that give a list of candidates to the governor for appointment. Her term would have ended in three months.

    Equation :

    Depression : New Deal = Great Recession : Stimulus Package (Groundwork) + Incomplete Energy Independence or A Jobs law

    The Problem = The destructive war & military waste + Stimulus Package
    Therefore = Incomplete Energy Independence or A Jobs law – The destructive war & military waste
    Criticism = Stimulus Package (Groundwork)
    Conclusion = Gambling on Iraq Oil + weapon sell Again + Double-dip Depression

    Cure = Slashing the destructive war & military waste + Completion of Energy Independence or A Jobs law

    Anger at These :
     
    Gambling on Iraq Oil Again : A Drop in the Bucket Vs. Growing Population & Demand World-wide. The Age of Cheap Oil = A Thing of the Past.
     
    1. At this time, it looks like the oil-friendly country is gambling on Iraq oil again, citing a big government & deficit, and therefore the world-wide stimulus package worth trillions and health care reform in America are now at stake.
     
    2. Of the money by the money for the money is getting a society nowhere near prosperity.
    Gambling on party of “no idea” is sure to be much like Throwing an Egg of Economy Against a Rock.
     
    The outcome of government take-over :
     
    1. In banking industry, the result of government take-over is big bonus parties backed by the tax-payer’s invaluable cash.
     
    2. In healcare reform, the outcome of government take-over is to dump ill children when needed most.
     
    3. In oil spill, the administration should be held responsible for its deregulation, urging a big government
     
    Chanting deficit :
     
    1. Amid chanting deficit, the same old failed policy.
     
    2. Amid chanting deficit, hands-off approach over huge trade deficit from oil money spill & trade imbalance with China from remorseless health care premium.
     
    3. Unfortunately, as a direct consequence of remorseless health care premium, numerous folks have no choice but to hang onto affordable offerings, since one in two households is said to face a hard decision between necessity & drug.
     
    4. Inaction cost in relation to health care reform totals $9trillion over the next decade.
     
    5. Over the next 10 years, total Bush tax cut costs will equal $3.9 trillion, …. the tax cuts would increase deficits by nearly $4 trillion between 2005 and 2014.
     
    The most critical debt : Personal Bankruptcy
     
    1. The current recession came from Personal Bankruptcy largely as a consequence of the relentless health care costs, pain at the pump, and the subsequent subprime mortgage crisis.
     
    Facing huge trade deficit from oil money spill & trade imbalance with China, the primary economic policy of previous administration was ” spending baby “to the great delight of republicans’ sponsors.
     
    2. By comparison, the recovered stock market value alone, around $1.5 trillion, is nearly twice as much as the stimulus package, set aside all the other benefits.
     
    As always, the republicans and unqualified media let folks locked in a box. ruling out the positive effects.
     
     
    The most promising deficit-cut of government : Slashing the destructive war & military waste
     
    1. Slashing the destructive war & military waste alone supposedly could be enough to balance the budget.
     
     
    Energy Independence : An Only Way to Desperately-Needed Job Growth
     
    1. My response to the question : where are jobs ?
    In the trade deficit, exactly in the severe and persistent oil money spill, taboo of ” do not add to the deficit” party.
     
    2. Under the existing Bush tax cut for lavish bonus parties, a sole job plan for the republicans, the country already saw millions of job cuts.

  2. Nick Says:

    Who cares? A radical democrat, tired of their diatrabes.

  3. Nick Says:

    And Alex Sink WILL support Obama’s Cap and Trade (read that TAX). That means Alex will in effect DOUBLE YOUR ENERGY BILLS.

    Obama’s EPA director is already holding FL hostage to the water flowing from Georgia and Alabama (they aren’t under EPA directives)to Florida and it will cost YOU the Floridian $75 more per month on YOUR water bill.

    That’s Alex Sink and the democrats.
