Why are we assisting uninsured home owners and renters? Talk about a free handout! This is crasy to reward irreponsible behavior.

Because the insured homeowners and renters don't need help? And while we're at it let's be honest: you don't care whether they are insured or not, you just don't believe in helping anybody.

I saw the headlines and thought this was a result of Kasich's Jobs budget. You know, the one they said couldn't be done...

If you can afford to buy a home you can afford insurance and if you can afford an apartment you can afford $30 a year for renters insurance.

Old School, et al. Check your homeowners policy. It does not cover flash floods. Many people who do not live in the flood plain are affected by flooding during unusual weather events. Obviously, you are a narcissist and care only for yourself and have no sympathy for those who paid their insurance premiums and had no cause to believe they needed to purchase an additional policy covering flash floods. Your self love and cold hardheartedness is exceeded only by your ignorance.

To begin with, the average price for apartment insurance in Columbus is more like $165 a year. I am not very good at math but either 30/165 or 165/30 will as an index of your ignorance.
