John Mackey believes the market is the best vehicle for health care reform. And, several years ago, he equated ObamaCare with socialism:
In countries like Canada and the U.K., there is no intrinsic right to health care … All countries with socialized medicine ration health care by forcing their citizens to wait in lines to receive scarce treatments.
It would appear, however, that he has revised his views concerning the kind of government that features blights like ObamaCare:
Technically speaking, it’s more like fascism. Socialism is where the government owns the means of production. In fascism, the government doesn’t own the means of production, but they do control it — and that’s what’s happening with our health care programs and these reforms.
But there is an out for the government bureaucrats who are hastily herding us into the health care concentration camp that is ObamaCare.
They can always say they were just following orders.
