Yes, and that's your freedom of choice and that's great. But for those who need to save every penny possible caged eggs is the way to go (I have personal experience with that but I won't delve into it) and taking that option away by law is nothing short of absurd in my view.
That'd be the same as having tariffs to encourage people to buy local products or to ban child labour, so ultimately, that depends on how strongly you feel about hens not being caged.

Another reason to not have caged chickens is to limit the spread of diseases. In closed environment, it's a lot easier for them to catch something like the avian flu which would either lead to their untimely deaths, or human infections.
