Am I the only one bothered by the fact that the April 23 letter Your money and homeowner insurance, about hurricanes and homeowner insurance, was written by two state lawmakers from towns whose closest bodies of water are not the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico, but a couple of lakes?
All Sen. David Simmons and Rep. Bryan Nelson seemed to care about was the terrible amount of money the insurance companies lose when a hurricane hits. There was not one word about the money they rake in from Florida’s lucrative auto insurance business.
So they’re going to “focus to stabilize insurance costs” and “work hard to improve and stabilize our property insurance markets”?
How about focusing on doing away with the ridiculous deductibles that are so high most folks would lose their homes because they can’t pay them?
How about working hard and telling insurance companies that if they won’t insure Florida homes for hurricane damage, they won’t be allowed to profit from auto-insurance premiums?
Then I’d believe that these two (surprise, surprise) Republicans are working to help Florida families and not paying back the insurance industry for campaign contributions.
