business news in context, analysis with attitude

President Barack Obama visited a Bristol, Virginia, Kroger store yesterday, and while his primary mission there was to hold a town meeting with store employees about health care, the New York Times also reports that he snagged a peach on the way out and paid a Kroger executive a dollar for it.

Part of Obama’s goal, according to reports, was to reassure employees with health insurance that nothing would change if they were happy with their coverage, and that the plans being debated are aimed largely at providing coverage for people without it.
