There should be no FEMA, these victims should not be getting any tax dollars when they didn't bother to protect their own property with an insurance policy. If they don't care enough about their home to buy insurance, why should the taxpayers be made responsible for them after the storm? They took the risk and they lost...they need to stop begging for other people's money and get off their butt to rebuild their own lives...and next time INSURE their property.

Whom ever put a comment as "taxpayer", maybe you should educate yourself on how the world works. How dare you say such things in light of the devastation. Do you think that natural disasters are covered under insurance or that the insured were completely covered? You should be taxed doubled for going thru life with your head so far up your ass you thoughts are shit. I hope you lose everything worldly you have ever insured and see how well that pans out for you, you ignorant twat.

First of all before folks blast sandy victims who got money from "taxpayers" one should realize it was very limited.

Also only 47% of people actually pay taxes in the USA.

Flood Insurance is not Real insurance. It is subsidized and policy holders only pay 1/3 the true cost.

Near me for instance folks without flood insurance got $31,900 in many cases house next door with flood insurance got $150,00

In reality person A got a $31,900 handout while person B got a $100,000 hand out.

Also flood insurance only exists to protect homes back by FHA/Fannie/Freddie mortgages etc. In other words Uncle Sam is protecting its investment.

Since Uncle Sam does not care about folks without FHA loans they dont advertise or encourage folks who own their own homes to get flood insurance.

Why because cheaper to pay then $31,900 instead of $100,000 in the case of a major flood.
