It is an interesting question given that scientists tell us that the frequency and severity of hurricanes and other storms hitting our coastal areas is likely to increase in the coming years.
I believe it is because that's what insurance is for. I find it particularly ob<x>jectionable that taxes are spent on re-building in areas that we know will be hit by similar storms again....it makes no finacial sense.
No, of course that's not wrong. Those in need should always be helped.
Why not cause I know if a tornado tears through my town I would like some help rebuilding-that is when taxes pay back. I want a government that cares about me to some degree
What is insurance for?
The greatness of our country is that we can and do look out for our own- good or bad, so yes I am ok with it even if the insurance companies would not cover or it was too expensive. Some of these people lost their whole lives - instead of being nit picky, have some compassion
Of course. They should have bought insurance. Wait, they could not afford because insurance companies told them that a storm could destroy if they build there.
