Arizona Republic columnist Robert Robb often displays an independent streak in his writing. Except when it comes to Arizona Public Service, the state’s largest utility monopoly. They provide talking points. He fetches.
While again criticizing renewable energy initiatives – demonstrating anew how extraordinarily out of step he is with Republican likely voter public opinion – Robb makes no critique of his corporate inspiration – one of the great subsidy sucking machines in state history.
Nor does he make mention as we have here before (Click here) of his previous job as Chief Subsidy Shiller for sports franchises and corporate interests.
The true “faux conservatives” are not those that see the philosophical consistency with supporting school choice, health care choice AND energy choice through options like rooftop solar. They are those who Robb the title with archaic utility speak.
