To be more accurate, healthcare spending is about 16% of GDP, or $2.5T annually. Dividing by the number of citizens, we spend about $8K per capita from all sources on healthcare. That's $600K over an average lifespan, per citizen. Point is, you can argue about how much of this $600K should come from the individual, his employer and the government - but unless you come up with a system that raises this $8K/year per person, there will be deficits or some sort of rationing.
