Oh I'm sorry, you seem to have forgotten that no matter what's actually true, the rightie will always stand firm in his belief that the free market is perfect and fixes everything.

The healthcare situation in the US could actually be improved by mandating standardized price disclosure from hospitals (and insurers), which would greatly increase market transparency and promote competition.
Of course the free market doesn't produce that by itself (at least not in the healthcare market) and this would require government regulation.
