Flood taxes and insurance

It is interesting to now hear the Prime Minister talking about a levy or new tax to keep the budget plans on track and help towards the cost of getting QLD and I hope Victoria and NSW up and running again.  What about the issue of some sort of agreed policy cover from insurance companies.  People in flood affected areas are finding out/realising they are not covered to the extent they thought they were.  This is not a new problem, similar issues like this have occurred after bushfire disasters etc. Let's hope that they finally take the issue on board and do something about it.

I was amused during the week to hear about the cash for clunkers scheme having written a paper on the silliness of the scheme for a politics assignment.  I was chuffed to hear that others with more knowledge about the issues actually held the same views I did...
