Gov. Ron DeSantis in Miami today again promised that lawmakers in Tallahassee will tackle the property insurance crisis next week during a special session.

Umm, we had to make sure teachers don't tell kids that gay people exist and then we had to fight an ill advised public relations battle against the mouse over it.

Do you think we have time for stupid crap like runaway home owners insurance rates?

If you just vote for us this November we promise to take care of the problem right after we make sure woke Antifa transvestites stop indoctrinating your children with that commie CRT jibber jabber.

Buying Farm Bureau insurance underwrites one of the most right wing and anti environmental organizations out there.

On the one hand, climate's wrath drives rising property insurance rates.

On the other hand, Florida.

Step 1. Blame the Democrats.
Step 2. Do step 1 harder.

Problem solved.

Do any Floridians who live in older modest homes, totally paid off, just skip insurance altogether? Just say, "Eff it, if it happens, it happens." I should think older couples of relatively low income would just about have to go uncovered so that they can pay for life's other necessities.

President DeSantis will simply shovel disaster money at the greatest state in the union to fix things.

Having Florida Man migrate north certainly will be interesting.

Another reason why Disney might just pack up and move to a more friendly state.

Long term the park will suffer from climate change as much as the rest of Florida.

I welcome the 2024 debates between him and trump.

I wouldn't even put it past desantis to arrest trump (there is probably so much dirty laundry that he could pick trump's poison)

Say - do you guys know what salt water does to limestone?
If you live in most of Florida, you might want to start thinking about it.

fark, my car insurance in Kansas is $150 a month for a six year old car, and I'm almost 40. No accidents in six years, my car is paid off, and my deductible is $1k. Credit score is 710, I asked what's up, assholes told me to BUNDLE. My boyfriend pays the house insurance and his own car insurance, doesn't want my name anywhere near his policy.

I told them I'm leaving and they don't care apparently.

Tort reform would easily solve half of this problem.  A huge part of this is due to scammers, and their lawyers ripping off the insurance companies.  It's a tough thing to get a fix on, since the lawyers own many of the politicians, and they pay a lot to keep it that way.

I just considered that.  I have a cheap house.  When housing prices went sky-high, they actually lowered the value of your home for insurance purposes, since when homes get very expensive, some people will burn their homes down for the insurance.  so now I pay twice as much for insurance, and if my house burns down, I'll get $35,000 for it.  I said, "cheap".  Not a refrigerator box.

The coverage is actually more for anyone who wants to trespass on my property and hurts themself, then sues me.  I need insurance for this?  I need to pay hundreds of dollars a year so that if my house burns down, I'll only get enough money to pay rent in town for a couple of years?

I"m starting to think that all these little houses up here with the "No Trespassing" signs on them are not insured.  I wouldn't blame them.
And that's what I get for busting my ass and owning a home.

I think Florida passed tort reform when JEB was governor 20 years ago.

Saw something about this recently. It has to do with Florida not having some pretty basic laws that prevent frivolous claims against insurance companies through scam roofing operations and other such things. Only a handful of states don't have such laws, and it doesn't take much time to figure out where most of them are located and who generally controls their legislatures and governorships.

Yeah, but you have to go south to go north in Florida.
