<<Do you really want your electric utility to make keeping the lights on conditional on the customer getting up, getting bathed and dressed and seeing an employment counselor at an appointed time? And following the directions given to them by the employment counselor?

SP, it's not the utility companies that are doing this. This is the debt collector. You know, the people who call and harass and threaten? The people that debtors are afraid of? The people who can put liens on homes and haul away cars? Who can order people to appear in court?

You don't want to see the abuse this invites. When you do, you wont like it.
