Given that we now "all agree" that we need a universal system, let's look at systems around the world that work best and that we might transition to.
Old people cost the most money. By low-cost, I mean we take care of all Americans until age 18. After that, you're on your own. Save your money slowly for retirement and medical services, or blow it all in Vegas. I don't care.

France is high cost, but lower than America. Lower than high cost, is still high cost.
The mixing of populations lowers the cost of being unusual.
