What people need to do is take responsibility for their choices. Here, the county, or maybe the state, has imposed a $150 a year fee for people living in the fire prone chaparral. The people with their fancy houses there had a fit, why should I pay extra to live here? The county (Forest Service) has the obligation to keep my home safe, I pay taxes too, whine, whine. Live in a risky place, pay for the risk.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
