The National Flood Insurance Program(NFIP) is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency(FEMA). The 2005 hurricane season resulted in claims which the program's annual premium income could not cover. To pay claims, the NFIP borrowed from the U.S. Treasury. Prior to 2005, the NFIP's borrowing authority had been limited by statute to $1.5 billion. Congress made up for the shortfall by increasing the program's borrowing authority three times between September 2005 and January 2007 (from $1.5 billion to $20.8 billion). The NFIP currently owes $17.775 billion to the U.S. Treasury. http://www.gop.gov/bill/112/1/hr1309 Thank you Republican-controlled Congress from January, 1995 through January, 2007.

This Republican-controlled Congress overwhelmingly passed "H.R. 1309: Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2011" on July 12, 2011. It's purpose: "To extend the authorization of the national flood insurance program, to achieve reforms to improve the financial integrity and stability of the program, and to increase the role of private markets in the management of flood insurance risk, and for other purposes." Why does the government subsidize millionaires buying insurance for their large homes on beachfront property? Most of this money goes to two states; Florida and Texas. When I was a kid, most beachfront dwellings were cottages. Now, thanks to taxpayer financed insurance, wealthy people build mansions.

Here's the typical Republican response about giving out flood insurance money to home-owners; "yeah, but not all of the money goes to millionaires with million dollar homes." PRICELESS!!!!

This Republican-controlled Congress voted to shore up the National Flood Insurance Program to the tune of 10 billion dollars. It's nothing but a redistribution of wealth from America's taxpayer's to millionaires with million dollar beachfront homes. This program is godless and immoral.
