    big business wanted to start providing health care coverage in the first place was to enable them to reduce taxable wages.  If they supplanted wages with benefits, the corps pay less in taxes.

    It was a great deal for them, but they never envisioned the cost of health care skyrocketing the way it has.  However, they've still made out okay; they reduce benefits without restoring the wages.

    With single payer, big business would have to go back to paying good wages.  You would think that would just be easier for them.
