"Tough Shit" = Party of No Answer to All American Problems

The GOP now can take responsibility (no worries; not holding my breath) for the expiration of flood insurance due to their own obstruction.

Please see the story here.

An excerpt:
"According to the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America, there are 5.5 million flood insurance policy holders in flood plains, and as of this week, homeowners were rendered unable to renew their policies. If any of those homeowners were victims of the current flooding, they will “face complications” filing claims. As Blain Rethmeier, spokesman for the American Insurance Association, put it, “it’s unfortunate that the NFIP has fallen victim to the political process”:

Ultimately the people who will suffer the most are property owners who need new coverage or who need to renew their flood insurance policies. One can only hope that Mother Nature is kind until April 12. Otherwise, there’s not much people can do."

Yes, and I hear from friends on the EC that shit is indeed flooding the streets. Too bad, says the GOP.

Republican horseshit. So tired of it. Obstructionist government serves none of the people. I'm not entirely certain as to why those on the right side of the aisle cannot wrap their little brains around this very clear concept.

Thanks for commenting. I agree. Government that doesn't work works for no one...I think the GOP just wants to do nothing, then try to blame the fact that nothing gets done by pointing fingers at the majority. Sounds like a good plan to me...

Unfortunately for them, things are getting done anyway!!! The obstructionist attitude is getting old, and becoming a joke. Too bad they don't get it.....
