Radley Balko of The Agitator gives a few solid reasons in favor of shopping at Whole Foods and against the boycott.
Transcript of Greta Van Susteran interview of Brian Sullivan, from Fox Business Record. In this interview, Sullivan mentions that Whole Foods offers domestic same sex partner benefits, a progressive stance that makes me think more than once against joining the boycott.
Mackey's justification of his opinion,
"Health care is a service that we all need, but just like food and shelter it is best provided through voluntary and mutually beneficial market exchanges. A careful reading of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution will not reveal any intrinsic right to health care, food or shelter. That's because there isn't any. This "right" has never existed in America."
While not taking a stand on the boycott one way or another, I will state that I want to live in a country where health care is considered a right and not a privilege.
