Certainly not the state of Florida. And good luck with Scott because if there was ever a fox watching the hen house it is him.

I'm sorry but if you are going to make statements like I'm going to say something.
How many times has Tennessee been hit by a hurricane in the past 100 years and what are the chances of it happening in the next 100?

Tennessee had more bad storms last year than Florida.I don't here people saying there insurance is going up in leaps and bounds. Most likely because again it was mostly flood damage. Plus anyone that voted for Rick Scott the crook should not be surprised when he screws the public again by allowing the insurance companies open season on there policies.

I think you would be paying even less if not for the disasters all over the country; Even though insurance companies are supposed to only take into account what happens in each state.

we havent had a serious wind blow through here since 2004. That mean's all these insurance company's have collected huge amount's of money and paid very little. Will they mention the 8 great year's they have had if we have a hurricane this summer. I really doubt it.

We all pay high rates because insurance companies like to gouge. But you are still going to be paying more in Fort Myers than you are in Knoxville. Florida homeowners are not paying for disasters that happen across the country, as you said, but for the disasters that happen in their state, plus a nice healthy profit on top of that. And the state has not kept a clamp on the insurance companies, either.

And FL creates the problem. In most states when a motorist doesn't have car insurance, their car is taken to an impound lot. They get it back after purchasing insurance. Amazing what an great incentive that is when they lose the vehicle.

In FL they get a ticket and keep driving.

Amazing how many people in FL drive with no car insurance, but if you know the worst thing that will happen is a ticket, they don't really care.

Not true. If you don't have insurance they tow you, you cannot continue to drive without insurance in the state of Florida.
