  • What do you think about Robert Reich's new video on the public option?

    Please watch this video and tell me if this makes sense to you?

    He seems to be arguing that the only way a public option will be able to guarantee a low enough price is if it is national and huge, rather than smaller and regional. Then he says that when it offers a lower price than smaller, regional insurers, they will be forced to lower their prices to compete. So, correct me if I am wrong, but he seems to say that it is impossible for a small, regional public plan to guarantee low prices, but it is somehow possible for a small, regional private plan to guarantee low prices. If that is the case, then it follows that private insurers are more efficient than a government insurer. If it is not, then he just wants to drive the private insurers out of business.

    I don't know if it is possible here to have a rational intelligent debate without all the name-calling, but please try. Tell me if you think Reich is trying to say here if you believe he is a good spokesman for the cause.

  • Whole family tree charting software?

    Does anyone know of a program that will chart your whole family tree, not just ancesters or descendents? What I want it one that will include cousins and their children, aunts, uncles, as well as ancesters all in one chart.
