Dem bill moves to block Trump properties from taxpayer-funded flood insurance to teach him a lesson

Democrats are aiming to keep Trump properties from receiving federally subsidized flood insurance as retaliation for the president’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord.

Legislation was introduced in the House on Monday to block subsidized insurance from the National Flood Insurance Program, but only for the Trump family, The Hill reported.

Oregon Democrat, Rep. Earl Blumenauer, introduced the bill which is actually titled, the Prohibiting Aid for Recipients Ignoring Science (PARIS) Act.

“The American people should not be responsible for bailing out leaders who ignore science to gain political points, while subjecting the United States — and the rest of the world — to the catastrophic effects of climate change,” Blumenauer said in a statement. “Trump may choose to reject science, but he can’t ignore the impacts — especially as they happen in his own backyard.”

Flood analysis allegedly found that Trump’s Florida properties, including the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach and oceanfront condos in Miami, could be under water in the coming years due to rising sea levels from climate change.

The Trump National Doral Golf Club in Miami is also threatened, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the South Florida Regional Climate Change Compact, the Hill reported.

Blumenauer accused Trump of politicizing climate issues but, typically, saw nothing political in his proposed bill aimed only at properties owned by the first family.

Twitter users quickly weighed in on desperate Democrats and their taking things “too far.”
