    So…homeowners are given “GRANTS” from the government. Once again, the average JOE is given a hand-out at the cost of American TAX PAYERS. This is a slap in the face to the citizen who takes precautions and makes sure he has the right type of insurance(s) and enough of it. He pays his pays premiums year after year while his neighbor never worries about it. The homeowner paying his premiums is depriving himself of some other luxury in order to be responsible. The average Joe cries and gets a bailout at the expense of tax payers. And then in the end the “government” looks like the good guy hero. What a bunch of crap.

    This seems very kind, but it is in fact a unilateral gift dictated by Gov> Christy from the homeowners who were responsible enouth to purchace flood insurance and were able to repair their homes wiht the insurnace proceeds to the homeowners who were not responsible.

    I understand that this may be good for Gov Christy (I am a Republican, but i do not support government taking from one group to give to another, no matter who benefits politically).

    Why would any rational person buy insurance if the U S or State governmemt can be relied upon to step in and pay for the damange for those who did not buy insurance?

    If gifts are being given, would it not be fair to reimburse the insured homeowners for the premuim they paid to have insurance?

    Stop enabling irresponsible homeowners by bailing them out and letting them rebuild IN THE SAME PLACE like this will never happen again. If the government is going to offer anything, it should be buyouts. Knock these houses down and let the flood plains be flood plains, not residential neighborhoods.

    BTW: Isn’t Christie supposed to be a free-market, personal responsibility, small government guy? Hmmmmm….
