Whole Foods Buycott
Angry that someone with sympathy for some “progressive” values and a proclivity for organic foods understands how to run a business, the Left has called for a boycott of Whole Foods. CEO John Mackey angered many of his leftist customers recently when his column in the Wall Street Journal criticized ObamaCare. (Whole Foods gives all employees who work 30 hours or more high-deductible health insurance plans and also funds a health savings account to allow them to pay co-pays. This is exactly the type of market-oriented solution to health insurance advocated by the Cato Institute.) He has also remained unapologetic in his view that economic growth and ingenuity depend on the existence of free and open markets.
Not to worry, the National Tea Party Coalition has organized a “buycott” of Whole Foods today. So be sure to get out to Whole Foods today to voice your support of free enterprise.
