While not all of those who own beachfront property can be considered rich, the fact is, there are few more valuable parcels of land in the country than some of the ocean view houses and cottages that are continually battered by storms.
The same holds true for communities along rivers that are flood prone. A river town that experiences a flood every one hundred years is one thing. But some communities get flooded out a couple of times a decade. The question is the same; should the government - and our tax dollars - continuously subsidize those who live in disaster prone areas?
Its a government program! What could go wrong?
Time to evacuate San Francisco, Los Angeles, etc.
Because we are now photo op nation, and no good resolution can stand against the stampede of pander bears when there are tearjerking visuals to be had.
People should live wherever they CHOOSE...but I should not have to subsidize their CHOICES.
Why? So someone can get re-elected.
Its like idiots that build on a flood plain and then cry when it floods....no insurance for the stupid...
