    Whether or not it was intended though, your post did get me thinking while writing this one that merging a lot of the payout programs together (Children, unemployment, etc.) could probably be merged together in some way, which would fit with some of the rest of the stuff written in the platform.
    If you really want to simplify redistribution, how about a negative income tax?

    That would work as well. (I'll add it in.)
