Why isn't free market best solution to US healthcare crisis?

What are the best arguments (links to articles/sites appreciated) that government regulation and tax code distortions are not the primary causes of the American healthcare crisis? Why wouldn't a more free-market approach (i.e. remove the obstacles to far more vigorous competition between insurers for individual premiums) be the solution? If adverse selection
is a reason, how is that any worse for health care than for other insurance markets (e.g. life insurance)?
