Deregulation Screwed Texas and People Died

It wasn't just a snowstorm that took out electricity in Texas. It was George Bush, Ken Lay and deregulation. Texas is being ripped off for electricity – all due to George W. Bush doing favors on deregulation for friends in TX. And today, Texans are paying the price... literally. And some have died.

Greg Palast joins Thom Hartmann to explain why the US no longer has the cheapest and most reliable electricity.
