Truly. I had no idea he was a libertarian, but this is as reasonable and solidly free-market a proposal on healthcare that I’ve seen. And Mackey is pretty much invulnerable to any accusation he is simply a “greedy capitalist.”

Have you seen the prices in Whole Foods?

I used to shop there. No different from any other grocery store and some things are cheaper than Walmart’s ‘grocery store’. I miss Whole Foods Market but I have my own now in my backyard!

Well I go to Whole Foods regularly and don't spend all that much more money than a regular supermarket. The "Whole Paycheck" tag is a misnomer if you know how to shop it.

Obviously you will spend a small fortune at Whole Foods if you buy the prepared foods, the exotic cheeses and the yuppie produce (like the belgian endive).

When I go to Whole Foods, I get eggs, yogurt, raisins, nuts, basic produce like salad mix, apples, blueberries, squash, etc. I basically stick the perimeter of the market and avoid all the high priced processed stuff in the middle. Therefore I get high quality food at reasonable prices.

Re: “Have you seen the prices in Whole Foods?”

*************

I’ve seen the goods, and the prices, and the clientele. No thanks to any of it, regardless of what WF’s leader currently says about healthcare.

Here in L.A. where the far left rules, I suppose those WF customers who get wind of this man’s views will rush to abandon Whole Foods and take up refuge at Wild Oats or some other idiotic market chain catering to their tastes.
