Detroit mayoral debate: Car insurance

 >> THE QUESTION WILL GO TO THE MAYOR  >> DETROIT RESIDENTS AS WE KNOW PAY SOME OF THE HIGHEST RATES IN THE COUNTRY FOR A AUTO INSURANCE

 NOTHING HAS BEEN ON THE AGENDA FOR YEARS  BUT CUTTING RATES WILL REQUIRE STATE SUPPORT AND NOTHING THE MAYOR CAN ESTABLISH DIRECTLY  HOW CAN YOU ADDRESS THE HIGH COST OF INSURANCE IN TH CITY  >> PEOPLE IN OHIO PAY $900 A YEAR  PEOPLE IN THE REST OF T STATE PAY $2,400 A CAR AND THE PEOPLE IN DETROIT PAYS $3,400 A CAR

 IN 1972, DOCTORS THE AND HOSPITALS WILL CHARGE WHATEVER THEY WANT  NOBODY HAS EVER FIXED THAT  CAR INSURANCE IS SO HIGH BECAUSE TODAY IF YOU WERE ON MEDICARE AND WENT IN FOR AN MRI  IF YOU HAVE BEEN IN THE CAR ACCIDENT — THEY WILL PAY $3,200 FOR THAT SAME MRI  THE LAWYERS HAVE TAKEN IT

 IT'S TIME WE DEAL WIT  WE HAVE PROPOSED WITH THE NAACP  A PLAN THAT SAID LET'S TREAT MICHIGAN LIKE THE REST OF THE COUNTRY  IF YOU WANT TO BUY THE SAME HEALTH INSURANCE AS THE REST OF THE COUNTRY AND IT'S YOUR CHOICE YOU WILL HAVE A 20%-50% REDUCTION  IF YOU ARE A SENIOR CITIZEN RIGHT NOW YOU'LL BE TERRIBLY RIPPED OFF

 IF YOU ARE IN A CAR ACCIDENT IN MANY OF THE OTHER 49 STATES  IT WILL COVER YOU  YOUR HOUSE AND REHAB  BUT IT REQUIRES YOU TO BUY UNNECESSARY DUELY CAT COVERAGE  WE HAVE A CHANCE TO PASS DRIVERS RIGHT NOW TO PUT $700 IN THE POCKET OF THE AVERAGE DETROITER

 $1,000 IN THE POCKET OF EVERY SENIOR CITIZEN AND TIRED OF OUR LEGISLATORS SAYING WHY THEY CAN'T GET ANYTHING DONE  >> IT'S TIME  SENATOR KO LMAN ON ADDRESSING THIS CAR PROBLEM  >> YES, THE REASON WHY AUTO INSURANCE IS TOO HIGH IS BECAUSE OF BASIC RED LINING  WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY SOME CHARGING PEOPLE BASED ON THEIR TERRITORY

 SUE THE AUTO COMPANY TO STOP THIS  SECONDLY, I WANT TO DIRECT MY CHIEF OF POLICE TO STOP THIS ASKING PEOPLE FOR THEIR PROOF OF INSURANCE  YOU ARE TAXING THE POOR PEOPLE TO BUY A PRODUCT THEY CANNOT AFFORD  THEY CHARGE THEM ON YOUR SEX, RACE, OCCUPATION, THEY CHARGE UNDER EDUCATION  IT'S WRONG

 WE NEED CHANG  IN THE 44 YEARS, IT HAS NEAR SHE BEEN ACCEPTED  WE NEED TO GO BACK TO THE STANDARD FOR THE FEDER INSURANCE OFFICE OF THE QUIET DEPARTMENT OF TREASURY THAT SAID IT IS MORE THAN 2% OF YOUR INCOME  AND LET ME ALSO SAY THIS  YOU WANT NO TALK ABOUT MY RECORD EARLIER

 LET ME JUST SAY THE REASON WHY I VOTED FOR THOSE BILLS IS BECAUSE I COULD RATHER SOMEBODY KICK A SOCCER BALL THAN CARRY BALL OF CHAIN IN JAIL CELL WHILE MY OPPONENT WAS LOCKING PEOPLE UP  YOUNG BLACK MEN F LOW LEVEL DRUG POSSESSION AS A COUNTY PROSECUTORTY WILL BE FIGHTING TO MAKE SURE THAT WE STOP THE WAR ON DRUGS AND THE WAR ON BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE  >> YOU LIKE A 30 SECOND DEBUTLE  THIS IS THE LANCING NONSENSE THAT PEOPLE ARE TIRE THE OF  THE NCAAP FILED A LAWSUIT AND IT LOST

 THEY PROVED THAT DETROITERS ARE BEING CHARGED FOR BECAUSE OF THESE MEDICAL EXPENSES BECAUSE OF THE LAWYERS AND DOCTORS PREYING ON IT  SENATOR YOU RAN AND SAID YOU WOULD FIX IT AND TEN YEARS LATER YOU DELIVERED SQUAT  DRIVERS CHOICE WILL GET RELIEF NOW AND I'M GLAD — I AM GLAD SHE HAD THE COURAGE TO STAND UP  >> FIRST OF ALL, I AM THE ONLY PERSON ON THIS STAGE THAT ACTUALLY PASSED THE AUTO INSURANCE REFORM BILL THROUGH A CHAMBER AND LEGISLATURE  SECONDLY, LET ME ALSO SAY THAT WHAT WE ARE PLANNING ON DOING FOR LAWSUITS IS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE SUE BASED ON NOT JUST RACE BUT ALSO YOUR SEX AND OCCUPATION

 WE WANT TO MAKE SURE IF YOU CAN FILE A NATIONAL CLASS-ACTION LAWSUIT  PEOPLE ARE RED LINED BUT
