John Stossel rips off FEMA

John Stossel appeared on The O'Reilly Factor and admitted that he built a dream house knowing it could get washed away, but was unafraid because the gov't would bail him out.

Bill: "..but you also knew that FEMA was going to give you money as soon as the big wave whacked it.

Stossel: "That's why I built it there..."

Here's a rich, fat cat using the system to benefit himself and gleefully (I like that word know) exploited FEMA so that he could prove how ineffective government is. I wonder if that was his foremost reason to begin with. O'Reilly loves this so he can back up his claim that government is useless. I wonder how many NOLA's had the luxury of building a beautiful beach front property- keeping in mind that the government would protect their property? How many NOLA's were just worried about their next meal? Obviously this was never the intent for the use of FEMA, but this ass wipe just loves the fact that taxpayers are footing the bill.
