Reagan was against government regulation; you know, the regs that give us clean air and water and keep places like Amazon from buying up every single competitor on the planet and taking over the entire market place. Yeah, we used to have those. Now we have Texas, a huge argument FOR regulation. Here’s a bit from the New York Times, my capitalization:

“…Jesse Jenkins, an assistant professor and energy systems engineer at Princeton University, explains in The Times, Texas has a unique electric grid that operates independently from the rest of the country TO AVOID FEDERAL REGULATION, so it has a very limited ability to draw power from other regions. And unlike the rest of the United States and Canada, Texas doesn’t pay electricity producers to hold reserves of at least 15 percent beyond typical daily demand.”
