"I do not equate buying house insurance after the house burns down, with the situation above."
By definition, insurance is the assumption of risk by a pool of subscribers BEFORE an insured event happens.
Covering ANY event after it happens is simply not insurance but, rather, a taxpayer subsidy.
Whether government should mandate that taxpayers subsidize others for whatever event may affect them AFTER it happens is an entirely different subject.
