29. Mixed feelings about denying aid to Con Ed

As a Con Ed customer I am worried about rates increasing due to the costs the utility has from the hurricane. Not just for me but for people in NYC who are much poorer than I am. It took them a long time (6 days) to get my power back on, and for some it's been a lot longer. But I know their people worked really hard. They have had a lot of labor disputes and I don't want their workers to take a hit either.

That said, we probably won't even get the $60 billion the president asked for, so I guess there have to be priorities. I am just glad they upped the request from the $50 billion I was hearing yesterday.
