This is One of the Best Things I've Ever Read on the Subject:

David Kay Johnston knocks it out of the park:

Atop the front page of The New York Times today is a color photo of Georgia homes flooded up to their rafters, an image that illustrates how when it comes to insurance our Congress applies two standards, separate and unequal, one for property and a lesser one for people.

Unlike people without health insurance, homeowners have access to public option flood insurance.

Even those who fail to take personal responsibility to buy insurance to protect their property can get benefits, thanks in good part to politicians who are leading opponents of public option healthcare.

Read the whole thing. Its nothing we don't already know, but its said very elegantly, and with details.
