    and this isn't a simple process by ANY stretch of the imagination. From developers needing security clearances to access IRS records, ancient, non-syncable databases from different government agencies, dick-waving from agency heads who don't want to cede perceived power, to spaghetti code that makes developers and programmers want to rip their eyes out and written in languages no longer supported (and which current developers can't easily fix), implementation of a real-time eligibility system would be a MULTI-YEAR project and one that would still have an unacceptably high error rate.

      to be able to access any bank or credit union account in the country as well as store loyalty card databases.  Not to mention having to do random home searches including the use of ground penetrating radar to verify that they do not have any "under the table" cash income that they are careful not to let the banks see and avoid using loyalty cards (or use ones under a fake name).
