Whole Health Care

Here is a must-read op-ed by John Mackey, co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods, about the Obama health care plans and how they work against the best interests of all Americans. It's a measured and well-written critique, with some worthwhile alternative suggestions to what will quickly become a single payer system.

"While we clearly need health-care reform, the last thing our country needs is a massive new health-care entitlement that will create hundreds of billions of dollars of new unfunded deficits and move us much closer to a government takeover of our health-care system. Instead, we should be trying to achieve reforms by moving in the opposite direction—toward less government control and more individual empowerment."

I didn't think I needed another reason to love Whole Foods, but now I have one.
