DOD: Health Benefits Corporation with War as a Sideline...

I've said for awhile (and Lee Iacocca said something similar first) that at some point, healthcare costs were going to escalate to the point of an identity crisis for big business: they'd begin to realize they could be as easily characterized as a health benefits provider that sold cars to cover their employee health costs as they could be characterized a car-sellingcompany that employed people to make the cars.

It appears that the Pentagon is the most recent victim of this mission creep (via healthsignals).

With healthcare costs blowing up the bottom line, people are wondering why we have a wage and employment crisis?
