FreedomBunker‘s Ed Krayewski reports that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is opposing FEMA’s plans to have insurance rates accurately reflect flood risk under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
- The NFIP is a broken government program that fails to protect its policyholders from flooding.

- In order to truly protect Americans from flood risk, and have people pay their fair share the NFIP must be reformed.
