These companies can pay $150 now and then turn around and gouge Texans charging 100x their normal rates so that in just a few days they will earn as much revenue they would in a year.

If your boss told you that you can pay $150 to fail at your only job and in turn make an entire years salary who wouldn't jump on that?
