  1. That’s a big increase!

    Thanks to Democrats, The general cost of living is going up….all the Executives at AEP want to insure their bonuses will continue to go up

    • Has nothing to do with Democrats. Trump took the national debt and budget deficit to the highest levels of any American President in history before COVID even hit.

  2. It seems like twice a year these dirtbags are trying to raise rates. Come and show me that you’re losing money and then we can talk about raising rates. I have a feeling they are doing just fine financially.
