When Ike tore up the roof, it took ~13 million dollars to repair. Insurance covered a good piece of it. However ~ 4 million was covered by FEMA........national taxpayers.............and an additional 2 million by the real owner Harris County.............of course, that's the local taxpayers.
Add in maintenance to the custom roof annually........while waiting for the next act of G-d damage.
Great foresight and cost effective planning by the Texans.
