    be better for companies to not have any insurance-related expenses to begin with.

    That's one reason that some US products aren't as competitive [sometimes] with products produced in other countries.  US products have to cover the price of health insurance; companies operating in countries that have socialized health care don't have to cover that cost directly.

        think of the expenses companies wouldn't have to incur--the payments, the administration, the budgeting......, the picking and choosing between plans and negotiating rates with different providers, getting pissed off at the ever climbing rates......
