    Even the most fair price is going to be eye-popping to people who live in small cities with great fire protection and no hurricane exposure. State access plans are the only reasonable choice unless you have a concrete bunker that won't even notice a wild fire.

    Assigned risk pools probably work better than state-sponsored companies for high risk areas. Citizens - Louisiana and Citizens - Florida have been too successful at attracting new policyholders. If either area has a large hurricane in the next year or two, the taxpayers may be asked to pick up a big tab for the inadequately priced insurance.

    The GOP is the party of mammon. They mock what Jesus taught.

      liability insurance separately and flood/mud/birds falling from the sky and general anything-might-happen insurance, too.

      This year, they also imposed an additional state fee on us. THAT I am fighting because they have already said they won't defend us in wildfire, so why should I pay it? Last time they drove through--past fires and through fires--to get to a new development to defend them and let neighbors in another canyon burn.

      If I thought they would actually help us, i wouldn't mind paying. But we all know they won't. I don't blame them, actually.
