We’ve had a lot of fun with Louisiana’s Junior Senator through the almost 7 years this website has been online and we likely will again, but today I am pleased to report that our own Patricia is on her way to life saving surgery thanks to Senator David Vitter and his seasoned staff here in Louisiana. I understand the gang is not looking for any recognition because they were simply doing their jobs but in this case they definitely deserve a prop and I am happy to give it.
Here is what you don’t hear in the mainstream media outlets like the New York Times:
(3) 40 percent of premium dollars going to the NFIP and private insurance companies for program administration, (4) adjusters who wrongly attribute wind damage to the flood program, and (5) 40 percent of federally backed mortgages required to carry insurance do not carry it — have led to premium increases of up to 3,000 percent and much more. Policies now costing $500 can increase to more than $20,000 when rates are fully phased in because structures are deemed out of compliance by Biggert-Waters.
True NFIP reform means clearing the rats off the money, not bankrupting your own people so insurance companies based in Illinois can make a fortune. And that’s the bottom line……..
I’ve got two or three dynamite things to post and I’ll try to get at least 2 in the hopper for tomorrow plus maybe a bit more to enjoy with coffee and doughnuts. 😉 Meantime I’m not exactly certain who Greg Aymond is but the good folks at We Saw That and especially Central LA Briar Patch are excoriating him and doing it well.
Having corrupt judges is a large part of the key to perpetuating the cycle of systemic corruption that has long had this area in a stranglehold. With Senators like Landrieu and Vitter making the recommendations I wouldn’t look for much to change.
Given the circumstances, this may just be the second dumbest campaign commercial Diaper David Vitter has ever run, especially since he tried to carry water for BP after the spill via limiting their liability for the damage they caused.
I’ve come to realize the danger of ideology when ordinary folks allow themselves to become unwitting dupes to those with higher personal aspiration that inhabit the political world, especially those that hold elected office. As a young CPA I was privileged to be broke in by a guy who not only held the credential but was also a superlative businessman and of all the lessons he taught me, the why he was in business instead of politics was the one that stuck with me forever.
