You are only 50% correct.
There will not be any balance to send back.
We would get vouchers to buy food and clothes from the local gov't commissary. Don't worry about eating or drinking healthy. Your local commissary will give you food packets of gov't approved food and beverages.
We would be given a house that fits our needs.
Needs defined by our gov't. If you have two kids you will be given a two bedroom one bathroom apartment. Don't worry about what to do if you have a third child. The gov't health care will take care of that.
Don't worry about buying a car. You can use the gov't provided mass transportation that picks up and drops off at a nearby street corner.
Don't worry about a pension or a retirement fund. When you are too old or feeble to work your health care plan will shorten your post working life. In other words you will not be a burden to anyone.
Don't worry about keeping up with the Jones's. They will have exactly what you have. Unless they have a gov't job.
If you don't want what the gov't says is good for you then get a gov't job and enjoy the special perks.
