Free market and health reform can go well together

Full story: Connecticut Post
Now is the time for all good capitalists to shop at Whole Foods. Not only will you get great produce, fresh meat, fish and healthy to-go meals, but you'll irritate those who think that President Obama's health care plan isn't quite progressive enough. Full Story

Mr. Mackey's article clearly recognizes that the sytem needs to be reformed and he presents an clear and unequivocal message about how to accomplish the reform without creating a huge financial burden for out children or a behemoth progam that will bankrupt this country. A copy appeared in the Wall Street Journal, http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142405297... .
Most of the items he proffers have been empircally and conclusively linked to lowering costs, improving access to care and improving the quality of care. So instead of slugging through 1000 pages of incomprehesible garbage largely influenced by special intersts, why not incorporate the Mackey plan - the employees of Whole Foods have good health insurance and this man has a proven track record for innovation and success.

I'm a life long Republican and all I ever asked for was responsible Government. I agree with Mr. Mackey. You must be conservative when it comes to tax payer money. There can be a health care insurance program that will not leave behind a mountain of debt, and can deliver good quality care.

I don't know all the ins and outs (who does) of the proposed healthcare reform but, if you think we are "paying for healthcare" now, wake TFU. I thought my child needed stiches for a small finger cut, went to ER late on a Saturday. Treatment: cleaned cut; applied liquid bandage; went home. Bill:$500!!! WAKE UP. WE'RE PAYING FOR IT NOW. The Medical INDUSTRY doesn't want you to change a thing.$500 for liquid bandage!!! WE're PAYING FOR IT NOW!!! I paid $100 ER deductable
