Whole Foods CEO Regrets ‘Fascist’ Remark
He called Obamacare ‘fascist’ and now he is regretting it. Whole Foods founder and CEO John Mackey compared the healthcare plan to a fascist regime while criticizing the healthcare reform law the other day.
However, it seems, he is regretting his choice of words, as he admitted recently on a TV interview. While giving the interview, Mackey said, “I regret using that word now because it’s got so much baggage attached to it. Of course, I was just using the standard dictionary definition.”
Although, he also admitted that he remained critical of the Obama government’s healthcare plan because “we no longer have free-enterprise capitalism in health care.” But he also said that he will look for a “new word” to describe his criticism now, like ‘government-controlled health care.’
Mackey is one of the few entrepreneurs in America who have been outspoken against Obamacare ever since it was announced. As a result of his use of ‘fascist’ word, there were some loyal shoppers who even took to boycotting Whole Foods.
