Hurricane relief

Those of us who are high and dry, and have adequate insurance for natural hazards, are asking why we should be taxed $60 billion so that Hurricane Sandy victims can rebuild on flood plains.

If we are going to spend this money, why not attach some revenue to the Sandy relief bill? A 20 cent federal gasoline tax for three years would cover the cost.
