So, homeowners in Okracoke are upset that they aren’t getting a taxpayer bailout on flood damage from Hurricane Dorian. It appears that many, if not most, chose not to purchase flood insurance.
So, whose fault is that? Why should taxpayers who live in Kansas, or here in Tidewater, who cannot afford a beach house themselves be required to bail out those who chose to built in a flood prone area and not carry appropriate insurance?
What line in the Constitution allows for such charity with other people’s money?
