If it wasn't for that darn government interfering in the free market the cost of cancer treatment would drop to where most people could afford it, because that's how markets work. The few people poor enough not to be able to could get one of those cans in diners to help out or offer to swap some chickens or something.
Insurance companies have far more to do with health care pricing than the government.
Free markets don't work when its "Pay us $X or die". Free markets are great for items with a lot of suppliers and many customers. When only a few companies control life saving drugs, they can collude on pricing and the rich will pay and the poor will die. The American dream in action.
