It's funny that for a party who claims capitalism is so bad, you are so easily persuaded to become part of the riches that come with using half truths and bad logic.

It is 100% clear you don't understand the first thing about Flood Insurance or how insurance companies try to screw the little guys over when it comes to flood insurance. Why don't you look into it and get back to us.

As a party, democrats don't think capitalism is "bad". Free reign capitalism is bad. Stockholder capitalism is bad. How do we know this? History all the way through this very minute. Why do you think there are so many rules, regulations and laws? Saying capitalism is "bad" to me is like saying freedom is bad. It isn't - but you have to have rules. I mean why do you think there are laws about murder, theft, arson, etc? Because people do bad things. Free reign and Stockholder capitalism encourage bad behavior and indeed reward it. Corporations are merely extensions of people who today are very disproportionately lead by sociopaths.

Need proof? Big tobacco and cancer. Monsanto and glyphosate and cancer. Purdue Pharma and oxycontin. 3M and PFAS. I can do this allllll day.

The intent of the National Flood Insurance Program was to set premiums and have rules for insurance purchase that would help mitigate flood damage risk. The NFIP was expected to minimize taxpayers' costs of disaster recovery by substituting insurance payouts for aid. That hasn't been that effective if you ask me. However it was solvent though 2004 off premiums but has not been since then. I believe Congress has canceled 16 billion of it's debt to the government up until now so it could pay out claims and remain solvent. It still owes the government well over 20 billion. IMHO any payment should be full payment for the property and reclaiming of that land by the government. Then people who want live in those areas will have to go to truly private insurers and not resellers of government insurance. You will get capitalistic pricing on the insurance through private parties and most will not be able to afford it. Damned right higher rates are needed.
