  •  Renter's insurance is nice if you can afford it (6+ / 0-)

    I had it when I was renting.

    But it doesn't put your life back together.

    It only pays for loss of personal property, not the extra money you have to pay to eat, live out of a motel , etc.

    No one is talking about grants to let these poor people replace all of their personal property.  We are only talking about getting them what they need to survive and get their lives back together.

    If people "have never needed a handout" then they have never been hit by this much misfortune, and they should be thankful, not resentful.

    Numbers are like people . . . Torture them enough and they'll tell you anything.
