He met with this group today:

and met one of their demands the same day, that he fire the head of the TVA

According the AP he had also seen the group's TV ad on Fox News.

Anybody got the TVA's side of the story?

But Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee said the TVA doesn’t get any taxpayer money. Commenting on the issue in April, Alexander said the White House was spreading misinformation. He said that TVA chief executive officers’ pay is lower than other large utilities and that TVA energy rates are among the lowest in the nation.

Therein lies the problem… Maximize salaries and profits, minimize service… oh, and don't forget to deregulate before you leave.

Contractors working on a H-1B visa aren't naturalized citizens.
