Incorrect.. the PA law limits the overall damages a one time payment
of ~12.6  billion dollars per incident, or ~120 million dollars per
commercial reactor operator.  

 Belarus has put it costs @ 230 billion and counting for next 580
years or so.    Ukrainian costs? Russia costs?   Costs per country
impacted by fallout?  

Note: A lot of the costs will be hidden via increased medical
expenditures, increased sick hours, disability payments, loss of
lifespan, etc.


Guess who has to pay.. taxpayers with their wallets or their health.  

I.E. Typical corporate greed, Privatize the profits, Socialize the
costs.


Incorrect.   The US Constitution prevents ex-post facto law changes.
Likewise it also prevents passing laws which target specific
individuals.. (Profiteering stock holders who sold prior to incident.)

"Constitutional challenge"

"the Price-Anderson Act does, in our view, provide a reasonably just
substitute for the common-law or state tort law remedies it replaces.
"


The PA should be repealed ASAP,  all of the assets of the plant
operators should be at risk whenever their is an incident.

Minnium non-nuclear asset requirements should also be required to help
cover potential liabilities.   Parent corp/stock holder assets should
be on the line.

And if that stockholder is your retirement fund then YOU take the
hit.

The meltdown in Japan probably just removed a couple years of lifespan
from people who live in North America.    A local event would be even
worse.

So If they profited from it, why not??

Why should such a dangerous technology be just one way street???

Another item, It should be now painfully obvious that allowing
immortal corporations the rights of citizenship and the near unlimited
ability to dictate the outcome of elections is anti-social and
extremely hazardous to societies which allow it.

That problem clearly extends well beyond nuclear power and into the
heart of capitalism in this country.
