Volunteering to Kill and Die for Health Insurance

CNN is running this story and it's being passed along to local stations for national coverage. The title, A Soldier's Sacrifice, is misleading. Unemployed and thinking the only way to get health insurance is by re-enlisting in the army as a potential killer and then getting killed in a criminal war only one month after being deployed to Afghanistan and leaving behind a four year son is a sacrifice?

For whom?

A father dies in vain, brainwashed by propaganda lies, his kid  will never know him and CNN spins the health care angle with 'sacrifice' for the American people. This is a sick society. Health care reform won't fix that.

Back in July, Army Specialist Greg Missman was killed in Afghanistan when his convoy was hit by an IED. The explosion cut short what was Missman’s second stint in the Army. He had left the military 11 years ago but came back for one reason: health insurance.
Last year, Missman lost his job as a computer consultant. And Missman’s father Jim says his son was worried about providing health insurance for his family. Specialist Missman had a four-year-old son, Jack.
