    "Businesses would not be required to provide health insurance under legislation being readied for Senate debate, but large firms would owe significant penalties if any worker needed government subsidies to buy coverage on their own, according to Democratic officials familiar with talks on the bill". Translation: You don't have to insure your workers, but if they opt for government-run health care, IT'S GONNA COST YA. So it's better for companies to insure their workers then. Of course, there will be some idiots who are offered very good coverage by their employers WHICH THEY REFUSE.
