Participatory budgeting

I recently found out about “Participatory budgeting” which is a democratic way of creating a national budget. Basically, each year when you pay your tax bill you decide how much money you personally will allocate to various government programs. For example, if you pay $100 in taxes you could choose to spend $15 on Military, $30 on Social Security, $20 paying down the national debt, etc.
