In a recent interview Whole Foods CEO John Mackey rightfully identified Obamacare as “Fascist”, reflecting on comments he made years ago when he referred to it as socialist.
“The CEO of Whole Foods Market said President Obama’s healthcare law is more like “fascism” than “socialism,” a parallel he drew in 2009, to some backlash.
John Mackey made the remark in an interview Wednesday with NPR.
“Technically speaking, it’s more like fascism,” Mackey said of the Affordable Care Act. “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 healthcare programs and these reforms.”
