There are serious problems with power in Texas. Some people (predictably) are trying to blame wind generators, but most of the shortfall is from natural gas or coal plants going offline.

Ted Cruz discovers that lassez-faire capitalism is bad

This is WRONG. No power company should get a windfall because of a natural disaster, and Texans shouldn’t get hammered by ridiculous rate increases for last week’s energy debacle.

State and local regulators should act swiftly to prevent this injustice.

So, err, who deregulated the energy market, Ted?
