“The emancipation of the working class will only be achieved by the working class itself.”

Mike Duggan, in his 2013 campaign for mayor of Detroit, made the differential insurance rates that Detroiters pay a big issue. What Duggan said spoke to people.
But now, four years later, a new election stares Duggan in the face. Rates are still skewed, and still outrageously high. So Duggan has offered up insurance “reform.”
Yes, it could lower rates a little – by cutting pay-outs for medical care a lot. But it does nothing to reduce the outrageous profit of the insurance industry.
It’s a nice gift to the insurance industry, combined with an attack on us – which Duggan must hope no one notices ... until after the election!
