** He's not complaining that keeping up the ruse ongoing was costly -- he was complaining that moving the ''Parrs'' again was costly. I.e., that Bob keeps doing this again and again.

* If Syndrome was systematically killing off superheroes one by one, then why does the government agent still complain about the massive costs of keeping up the ruse? He makes it sound as if this stuff was still happening all the time, but that can't possibly be the case.

** And then there's what he brings up to Bob near the beginning - if they all start being completely honest and open about their policies, as Bob is doing, they'd run the risk of giving people the idea to submit exaggerated or even falsified insurance claims.

** This assumes that he valued the long-term slow growth of the company rather than the short-term fast profit. It could be possible that he wanted to improve the financial prospects of the company as fast as possible and cash out shortly afterwards from the "success", where any future problems are not his to deal with.

* Bob's actions in actually paying out to clients, instead of looking for ways to avoid paying claims, would actually strengthen the company. Word would get out that Insuricare is honest, and that would attract more customers. Also, since Bob is probably one of the few claims adjusters that actually does pay out, his actions are unlikely to put much of a dent in Insuricare's finances anyway. While Mr. Huph is a designated [[HateSink Hate Sink]], he ought to be experienced enough in business to understand that insurance companies that try to screw their clients don't keep those clients very long.
