I am no economic expert, but common sense suggests that if Constellation and Exelon merge, most if not all the consequences will be detrimental to Marylanders.

Exelon would be buying Constellation, so when the number of workers is reduced — as always happens for cost-cutting reasons when mergers occur — Maryland workers will be the ones laid off.

And does anyone doubt that electricity prices, especially in Maryland will go up? Anyone with eyes and ears must know that this will happen.
