How about a website that would aggregate all government receipts and payments associated with my social security number. Receipts would be items such as income taxes and FICA I paid into the "system" and would appear as positive numbers. Payments would include any benefits I received and would appear as negative numbers. Benefits would include social security payments, disability payments, food stamps, housing and housing vouchers, farm subsidies, free cell phone, medicaid, medicare, grants for education, etc. Then, encourage those who are able to get their balance sheet into positive territory and offer suggestions for how to do so, such as train for a new job, lead a healthier lifestyle, etc.
