They always ask for twice as much as the North Carolina Utilities Commission will give them.
They get half of the increase, the Commission gets to thump their chest, and proclaim a battle won for the people.
Then, when the Commissioners leave, they go to work for the industry.

Wonder what would happen if they received a 0% increase like most people.
Things are really looking poorly for North Carolina and for America.
