100 year floodplain. Google it.

You're house might never get flooded in your lifetime. That doesn't mean it's not in a floodplain.

I WILL NOT subsidize your bad housing decision.

uglyass, I think you are talking about the same thing that troll posted! Premiums based on risk! Interesting that all agree with you and few agree with troll! Has to be one of two things; no one likes the same message when delivered by troll or most people can't comprehend what they read.....

I agree with all three of you posters. Owners should insure at their expense. This expense should be reasonable, something it will not be under new rules. Areas that only receive small amounts of flooding as mentioned by dying should actually be exempt or reclassified to keep premiums as they now are. This clearly is not a one policy for all.

Its time for people to start taking responsibility for themselves. If you choose to buy property in a flood zone, you should be responsible for the cost to insure it. Period. And I mean Period in the pre-Obama sense of the word.

Boehner is an idiot..he's in some ones pockets. I realize the flooding thing is bad. I have never filed a claim in my life. Two times in the 30 years I lived in my house i have had a couple feet of water in sections of my basement. I took the steps to remove things ahead of time. Cleaned my basement out and every thing was fine. there is no reason a person like me should suffer this. My home is paid for now. I can drop it if i want to but how the*****am i going to sell it??? If I want to. I was over insured at 800 a year. If that policy lapses or i sell under the current rules that goes to over 4 grand a year. that is absurd for a property that has never filed a flood claim ever.
