Pennsylvania woman gets $284 billion electric bill

Pennsylvania woman gets $284 billion electric bill

She jokingly told her son that she wanted a heart monitor for Christmas after seeing this year's bill.

According to the Erie Times-News, Pennsylvania resident Mary Horomanski saw her electric bill earlier this month was for $284 billion. She wondered if her family had put up the Christmas lights incorrectly.

The hilarious and terrible thing about this is that she would have been on the hook for a minimum payment in December of $28,156 had she not gotten that bill adjusted.

Republicans seized on the texts to claim that the F.B.I.'s leadership was politically slanted. President Trump has been critical of McCabe for months, blasting him as a "Comey friend".

Mary Horomanski, 58, was not expecting to have to pay such an amount for her Eire, Pennsylvania, residence when she went to check her electric bill from Penelec. The company said she just had to make a minimum payment of $28,000 by the end of December.

Horomanski texted her son who got in touch with Penelec to determine the actual amount.

Penelec spokesman Mark Durbin said somehow the decimal point was in the wrong spot.

Obamacare enrollment in NJ down slightly from previous year
Now the individual mandate, the Obamacare requirement that all Americans get health insurance or pay a fine, is gone. Among the 6.4 million returning customers, CMS said some undisclosed number were automatically re-enrolled.

Ms Horomanski says the bill gave her such a fright she asked her son for a different present for Christmas this year.

The company confirmed the error and said the bill should have totaled $284.

Can you imagine thinking your electric bill is $284 billion? "I opened it up and there it was", she told the Washington Post. "We appreciate the customer's willingness to reach out to us about the mistake", Durbin told the newspaper.
