    How about this.

    When you live in an historically active flood zone, FEMA should cap the payout to something like 1/2 the value
    of the property. That way the home owner is paying a price for living there.

    Probably overly simplistic .. just wondering.
    John Titor, when are you.

    I live in a green area so you tell me about how it is to have a 90 IQ as I've told you how I feel about you living in welfare state & welching off the rest of us. I live over 800 feet above sea level, how about you?

    This whole FEMA/goverment paying flood damages again and again sounds strange even for me and I am from somewhere what most 'Muricans would call socialistic country!
    You can buy flood insurance from private market and if they rate your risks high you will pay accordingly. I don't have flood insurance as it would take biblical flood to reach here.
    Building codes round here dictate that risk for flooding is maximum once in a 100 years. Our house probably once in 100000 years or less.
    And we are gaining ground constantly, rising about 0.5 meters per 100 years compared to sea level.

    that's the point though, they tried getting FEMA to charge market rates to start filling the $25bn hole in its books but then representatives and senators from flood prone areas complained so much that they stopped. No private insurer is able to compete on price with the government when it's charging 1/3 or less of market rates.

    The post before you posted this I was much nicer but if you want to compare IQs & can prove it I have $500 says I win, so put up or shut up & I don't want any of your FEMA welfare money.If you won't or can't I'm done, Game over
