Will Obamacare Supporters Switch to Junk Food?

Pro-Obamacare protesters have organised a boycott of Whole Foods Markets, after its chief executive John Mackey criticised health care reform plans.

Mackey put his name to an article entitled, The Whole Foods alternative to Obamcare, which opened with a quotation from Margaret Thatcher: “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

It went on to say that “even in countries like Canada and the UK, there is no intrinsic right to health care. Rather citizens of those countries are told by government bureaucrats what health care treatments they are eligible to receive and when they can receive them.”

Whole Foods then issued an apology.

Hah! I would have waited them out. Big government types are always boycotting something. As a matter of fact, I'd like to see them get upset at all toilet paper manufacturers, and boycott them all, so they can get a sense for what big government Cuba style is all about.

The Telegraph has the full story here.

  1. Wouldn't suggest that. Under Obamacare, they'd be up a creek w/o a paddle.
