Michelle Lujan Grisham and NM Democrats driving more and more nails in New Mexico's economic coffin

© 2018 Jim Spence -  Rivaling stupidity that perhaps only the lunatics running California can match, Michelle Lujan-Grisham signed legislation on Friday that will force New Mexicans to pay outrageously high electric bills.
The effects of the new law will be sweeping. Look for larger employers with options to leave this state in droves for places where children are not in charge and electric bills are not required to be absurdly high.
Thanks to Democrats, state laws here will force electric producers to squander precious capital on expensive and inefficient solar panels and wind turbines that don't have a prayer of providing the state with affordable electricity.
A collection of some of the dumbest people on the planet (brainwashed Democrat-environmentalists) gathered at the state capitol Friday for a signing ceremony that would be better characterized as a wake for death of all common sense.
According to the law, all "investor-owned utilities" will be required to generate at least 50 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2030 with that percentage jumping to 80 percent by 2040. Insanely, a 100 percent carbon-free mandate begins in 2045.
It seems that finally our failed public education system, which has created millions of economic illiterates in our state, has paved the way for the election of idiots in sufficient numbers to ruin this place.
What happened in Santa Fe this year should be enough to cripple the New Mexico economy indefinitely. No doubt there will be more to come as our clueless media continues to be oblivious to the implications of economic insanity.
