Last Sunday’s New York Times reported that many health insurers
have begun declaring war against their customers by aggressively jacking
up premiums. In another scandal, pseudo-libertarian Whole Foods CEO
John Mackey, who seems to think he is Ron Paul-Lite, called President
Obama’s healthcare law “fascism.” Mackey then retracted the “f” word
when talk of consumer boycotts against Whole Foods greeted his charge.
In the best news, Reps. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) and Henry Waxman
(D-Calif.) joined 43 other House members with a renewed push for the
public option that is supported by a significant majority of voters.
