people cry about government whores or welfare queens, and say you need to work for money, not take someone elses money to have a better life. yet no one condems lottery winners for taking millions without having to work for it.

What an idiot, typical in the box thinker. Imagine if we got rid of all taxation, and just funded government by lottery proceeds? Supreme poetic justice, tax the stupid only!

damn let the people have SOME fun. I mean peoples lives are shitty enough, at least they some hope for a couple seconds. If you wanna get rid of the whole system we live in then fine, but we are here and now and this is what we have to work with.

What a stupid post.

Are you aware that the U.S government spends more on the war, military, black projects etc than healthcare, education and welfare put together.

What you should be doing is pointing your finger at the government not a lottery winner.

LOL US spends all of around 6% of the military.

God I wish that % was higher, because what is the only point of a national government but to protect us fro foreign invaders, and not spent on doling out free cheese to idiots who give us their votes for the free cheese?

Mega Millions: Do lotteries really benefit public schools?
State lotteries that participate in games such as Mega Millions were sold to the public as enterprises that would benefit schools with millions of dollars in proceeds a year. So has public education really received a windfall?

In fact, in state after state, where lotteries send millions of dollars to public education, schools are still starved. Why?

Because instead of using the money as additional funding, legislatures have used the lottery money to pay for the education budget and spent the money that would have been used had there been no lottery cash on other things. Public school budgets, as a result, haven’t gotten a boost because of the lottery funding.

So, yes, a lot of money goes to public schools from the lotteries. But no, the money doesn’t do what it was promised it would by any means.

Most these tickets are bought by the 50% that don't pay taxes in this country , so yes maybe if they paid taxes instead of buying these tickets we could afford health care!
