Rates Going Up?

Help me with something. I've always thought that the cost of a product or service that a consumer pays is to either get a better product or get better service. I'm trying to understand why I am asked to pay for transmission lines to other states or other parts of Texas by the electric monopoly that benefits me NONE AT ALL! Isn't everyone glad that we deregulated the utility industries so we have hardly any say at all in the service we get except through a congress paid off by the utilities?
