WHAT repeated power failures? An issue at a local level that is generally storm-related is NOT an Abbott or State-level issue. It just isn't. That is a local operator issue. AND...the news about other grids shows that the incessant whining about ERCOT and how allegedly horrid it might be is, in fact, crap. The national media has indirectly illustrated WHY Texas does not want to be on a national grid. Never forget that Beta wants what every Demonrat seems to want...a citizenry beholden to the federal government.
