I need an answer from a Republican...

I watched John McCain's town hall meeting while at the gym.

He kept on talking about "free market incentives" being the solution to our health care problems.

I am looking for answers on the following questions:

Is there a "free market incentive" in for-profit healthcare greater than the profit motive?

Is there a "free market incentive" for for-profit health insurance companies that is more attractive than rationing denying coverage to maximize profits?

Is there a "free market incentive" for hospitals and clinics to not increase rates for services to make up for losses on unpaid ER visits by uninsured people?

These are very narrow questions. Comments that stray beyond answers to these three questions will be frozen or deleted.
