1亿赔款不一定纳税人承担,但是德州人民的电费大账单估计要全国纳税人承担了,同时电力公司可能大赚400亿

The spike in prices left many Texans with dizzying bills in the wake of the storms — ranging from four digits to more than $17,000. “We are about to see a wave of bankruptcies, foreclosures, and evictions as these bills hit consumer and retailer mailboxes,” said Robert McCullough, a consultant and former utilities executive who has testified before Congress. McCullough noted that electric companies are profiting from the price spikes. Those serving Texas’s main power grid — the portion managed by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) — garnered $40 billion in windfall revenue, according to his estimates. “Somebody won big,” McCullough said. “That’s not all profit, but I suspect most of it will be.”
With Biden signing a major disaster declaration that will allow much of the state to tap vast reserves of federal aid, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Tex.) suggested that the federal assistance would be used to help those facing spiking power bills. “The current plan is, with the federal assistance, to be able to help the homeowners both repair — because we have a lot of water leaks, a lot of water damage, pipes bursting — but, also, their electricity bills as well,” McCaul said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

纽约人付的联邦税,转移支付给德州了。
本来纽约人还能从SALT上面省点税,现在SALT没了,交的税还要多给德州。
去年运气不好,Covid先打击纽约,纽约财政受损失,政府公共开支不够,联邦也不救,估计只能再涨税了。
结果是纽约州多交联邦税,给德州用了,还被Covid打击,联邦不救,纽约人还要多交州税。

不一定,告的人多的话,金额太大的话,干脆申请破产,按照加州PG&E电厂的做法,发行bonds,大家都来买,还债期10年20年30年,按美金这个速度贬值,等于世纪大deal了
