New British Prime Minister Liz Truss announced Thursday that her Conservative government will cap domestic energy prices for homes and businesses to ease a cost-of-living crisis that has left residents across the United Kingdom facing a bleak winter “I'm not optimistic at all. It's already too much of a struggle on what we're getting. I will be in debt without a doubt, there’s no way I can pay 2,500 pounds," said Sharron Anderson, 60, a former government worker in London who recently became dependent on welfare payments after suffering a heart attack.
