    I agree 100%. Only those that pay premiums should be entitled to payouts. The rest can move away or save up for the next flood. Why should I pay to cover those that CHOOSE not to have insurance. This is ridiculous.

    I have to agree with Don233 on this one.

    If a person is in a flood zone, they should have flood insurance.

    That insurance should be affordable in the same sense that any insurance is -- meaning that while a person may not enjoy paying it, they are able to fit it within a household budget commensurate with the property they own.

    If a person can't afford both the property and the insurance policies to protect it, they should buy a lesser property. And moving forward, the government should not impose unaffordable insurance rates on people who already own property.
